How dangerous is the virus?
The fast spread of a coronavirus in China has given rise to global alarm, with neighboring states closing their borders, global airlines suspending flights, and some governments preventing foreign nationals recently visiting the Asian country from entering. The rapidly spreading virus, which is believed to have arisen in late December in the central city of Wuhan and has since been identified in over two dozen countries, has infected at least 74,576 people and killed about 2,118 people in mainland China. Four people have also died from the virus, known as COVID-19, in Hong Kong, one in the Philippines, three in Japan, one in France, one in Taiwan, one in South Korea and four in Iran. The World Health Organization (WHO) on January 30 declared the latest outbreak of a public health emergency of international concern in a bid to restrict its spread to countries with poor health systems. The UN health agency initially criticized the international travel curbs and flight suspensions against China but said countries would be "as proactive as possible" in the fight against the virus on February 11. When novel coronavirus cases now are known when COVID-19 continues to grow worldwide, researchers have discovered that older adults may be more vulnerable to respiratory disease, which can lead to pneumonia and symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If this outbreak continues to spread, then there is no indication of how dangerous it could become.
How contagious is the Wuhan coronavirus?
The outbreak of Wuhan coronavirus started when people exposed to an unknown source in Wuhan's seafood market began to fall ill in December. Wuhan has 4500 cases of coronavirus and 106 people have died.16-21 percent of China's people with the virus were seriously ill and 2-3 percent of those infected died. Emerging in Wuhan, a month ago, the coronavirus spreads to about 300 people. This coronavirus spreads very fast. People as of January 21 to nearly 21,000 and killed over 420 with thousands of new cases growing every day. The rapid escalation of cases is alarming, "said Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the emergency system for the World Health Organization, at a news conference last week before the organization declared a global health emergency. The disease is quick to spread. China's health minister, Ma Xiaowei, told reporters last month that evidence exists that it has already evolved into a stronger variant that can more easily spread among humans. Most diseases and deaths due to the coronavirus occur in Hubei province, where Wuhan is feared to have spread. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 12 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US. The epidemic has now spread to 25 countries. (The World Health Organization has declared a global health emergency.)Wuhan coronavirus appears to cause more severe disease in the elderly, although the latest outbreak remains uncertain. Horby has said that not a single child has ever been found to be suffering from the coronavirus. The average age, he said, is a person 40 or over.
