Coronavirus in China has killed more than 100 people, 4500 infected


The Chinese authorities have so far failed to stop the spread of the new coronavirus, which causes pneumonia, in many cases leading to the death of the patient.


According to the State Health Committee of the PRC, the number of deaths from pneumonia has already reached 106 people, and the number of cases has increased to 4515 people.

The zones of increased danger in the country are Hubei Province, the administrative center of which is the city of Wuhan, recognized as the place where the source of infection appeared.

Over the past day, 24 people died in the province and 1,3 thousand were infected. Moreover, most of the deaths and new infections occur in the provincial capital, which is the epicenter of the disease.

Chinese doctors note that young people and children are most likely to be infected, since at this age the human immune system is most effective.

Recall that the outbreak of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus began in December 2019 in Wuhan.

Presumably, the new coronavirus is of animal origin and came to humans through the consumption of meat from an infected animal.

A feature of this type of coronavirus is its ability to be transmitted from person to person during the incubation period.

    Everything will pass like smoke from white apple trees ...

    and this will pass. Remember how much hysteria there was about swine and bird flu in the world, and in Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko even became a kind of Zhanna D. Ark there, “famous” for bringing several cargo planes with expired medicine for teraflu for swine flu, fed him to their relatives, and, accordingly, enriched on this, but there was no pandemic, and there was a simple scam .... Yes, look how a simple flu brings people, especially the elderly, and many fatal cases, but it always has been those with weak immunity and nature, as if we did not want to, does not like the weak. Young people hold on well and cope with the virus, but the old people feel bad, but soon all this will recede, but some other garbage will come that is beneficial to someone, and what is happening in China is beneficial only to Uncle Sam, and no one more, be it man-made, or is it just another scarecrow.

    In a city with 12 million people, less than 100 dead and less than 5000 infected, this is nothing. Nevertheless, my condolences to the relatives of the deceased.

    Judging by the reports, someone really needed to get rid of the “stale” goods in pharmacies.
    Absurdity: in a country with one and a half billion people, the epidemic "claimed" 100 lives !!! crying
    A disgrace replicated by world media. It’s not necessary to eat anything horrible ...
