World Health Organization: Corona “does not represent a global pandemic”.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on Tuesday that the emerging coronavirus, which has spread from China to 24 countries, is not yet a “global pandemic”.
“Currently we are not in a state of global pandemic,” Sylvie Bryan, head of the WHO’s Department of Pandemic and Epidemic Diseases, told reporters in Geneva.
Corona left 425 deaths and 20,438 confirmed cases with HIV on the mainland.
In addition, there are one deaths in Hong Kong, in addition to two deaths in Singapore and the Philippines.
Among the countries hardest hit were Corona, Thailand (25 injured), Japan (20), Singapore (18, including one death), South Korea (16), Germany (12) and the United States (11).
This is believed that the new virus appeared for the first time in December in a market in Wuhan, in which wild animals are sold and spread during the Chinese New Year holiday, in which millions of Chinese travel inside and outside the country.
China took strict measures to prevent the virus from spreading, including quarantining more than 50 million people in Wuhan and besieging Hubei, the central province.
The World Health Organization announced, last Thursday, that the outbreak of the Corona virus in China is now a public health emergency.
The WHO representative in Beijing, Godin Gallia, recommended the governments of other countries to prepare for the possible spread of the virus, saying, “Countries should prepare for a possible import of cases in order to identify them as quickly as possible and be ready for local control of the disease outbreak, if that happens.”
He added that the organization is acting out of concern for poor countries that may not be equipped to deal with the virus, noting that the declaration of emergency requires a coordinated international response and could provide more funds and resources.
In pictures .. a large hospital and a “ghost town”
While the private centers in Wuhan were overwhelmed with hundreds of beds ready to receive the increasing number of people infected with the emerging coronavirus, the city’s streets were free of traffic and appeared to be a “ghost town”.
Pictures released on Tuesday showed hundreds of families set aside to receive those infected with the virus at an exhibition center that had been transferred to a hospital in Wuhan, in an attempt to accommodate thousands of people infected at the epidemic outbreak.
The Wuhan government said it plans to convert 3 existing places, including a gymnasium and an exhibition center, into hospitals to receive patients with mild symptoms of the new SK virus.
The Chinese government announced, on Tuesday, that 64 new deaths were recorded as a result of coronavirus infection in the central province of Hubei, bringing the total number to 425 deaths until the end of the third of February.
And 2345 new cases of the virus were monitored in Khobi, the epicenter of the outbreak, bringing the total number of people infected in the region to 13522 cases, bringing the number of people infected in China to 19,967 infected throughout the country, while the number of infections in the world is about 20155 people.
On the other hand, recent pictures showed Wuhan, a city of 11 million people, empty of its thrones, with empty streets and deserted shops, to paint a picture of the scale of the impact of the epidemic that hit the city.
The streets appeared completely free of cars and residents, in a surreal view of the city, whose streets used to be crowded with cars.
Other photos also showed famous shops closed in the commercial streets of the city, while shopping centers were limited to a very limited number of visitors.
An Egyptian doctoral student studying and residing in the heart of the city of Khobi Province, in an interview with Sky News Arabia, explained the current situation in the abandoned city.
According to the current situation in the city, the movement has become prohibited for everyone, according to the description of the researcher who likened him and his colleagues at the Central Agricultural University of China as “house arrest.”
“The authorities followed the idea of isolation. The affected outposts are isolated so that things become better. Now everyone is obligated to his home and only leaves him to buy basic necessities.”
The pictures showed the transformation of Wuhan and the surrounding cities into the largest quarantine area in human history, after which it turned into a true ghost town, awaiting the end of this “nightmare”.
Chinese cities impose quarantine because of “Corona.
The Chinese city of Hangzhou imposed a quarantine on its residents, fearing the spread of the new Corona virus, with the death toll from the virus rising to 425 cases.
Three districts in Hangzhou, which includes the headquarters of the e-commerce group, “Ali Baba”, announced that from now on, only one member of each Chinese family will be allowed out every two days to shop.
The city of Taizhou announced the same procedure.
The announcement was made of the two big cities in eastern China, although they are hundreds of kilometers away from the epicenter of the outbreak of the new Corona Virus.
The Chinese government also announced, on Tuesday, that 64 new deaths were recorded as a result of coronavirus infection in the central province of Hubei, bringing the total number to 425 deaths until the end of the third of February.
And 2345 new cases of HIV were detected in Hubei, the epicenter of the outbreak, bringing the total number of people infected in the region to 13522 cases, bringing the number of people infected in China to 19,967 infected throughout the country, while the number of infections in the world is about 20155 people.
