Now it’s important to keep the spread of the virus as fast as possible,
Agnes Busen at a specially convened press conference said that she does not exclude the possibility of finding other infected people in the country.
In particular, in a separate statement, the Ministry of Health announced the third case – a relative of one of the already sick patients fell ill.
What is known about Chinese coronavirus?
Now 1300 cases of the disease are confirmed, while 41 cases were fatal. A new type of coronavirus recorded in China has gone beyond the borders of the country. First, the disease was found in Thailand, and then in Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Vietnam, Nepal and the United States. In Russia, cases of coronavirus infection have not been confirmed. The mysterious coronavirus is able to spread from person to person, experts said about the fears of a pandemic. Until January 24, 13 cities were closed in China, including Wuhan, as well as other cities in Hubei – Chibi, Echzhou, Huangang, Xiantao, Zhijiang, Qianjiang, Huangshi, Enshi and Xianning. However, for the first time, doctors were able to cure a patient of a deadly new type of coronavirus, from which 36 people died.
According to WHO, the chances of dying from the virus in 2002 were on average 9%, but for those under the age of 24, they were below 1%. At the age of 25-44 years – up to 6%, 44-64 years – up to 15%, from 65 years and older – above 55%. But this does not mean that young people have nothing to fear if their immunity is weakened – the risk of death increases.
