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 ...

    this too will pass. Remember how much there was hysteria about swine and bird flu in the world, and in Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko even became a kind of Zhanna d.Ark there, becoming famous for having brought in several cargo planes with expired medicine Theraflu for swine flu, fed him her relatives, and, accordingly, got rich on this, and after all, there was no pandemic, but there was a simple scam ... Look how simple flu knocks down people, especially the elderly, and there are many fatal cases, but this has always been the case with those who have weak immunity, and nature, as much as we would not like, does not like the weak. Young people are doing great and coping with the virus, but with the old people it is bad, but soon all this will recede, but some other garbage will come, which is beneficial to someone, and what is happening in China now is beneficial only to Uncle Sam, and to no one more, be it man-made, or are they 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.

    A disgrace replicated by world media. It’s not necessary to eat anything horrible ...
