Coronavirus LOCKDOWN: Highways near Wuhan BLOCKED to stop people from leaving

Coronavirus LOCKDOWN: Highways near Wuhan BLOCKED to stop people from leaving

Both the Wuhan virus, known as 2019-nCoV, and SARS belong to the family of coronaviruses, so called due to their crown-like shape.

Others include the mild common cold and the life-threatening severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars).

Six University of Wisconsin-Platteville students are being monitored for coronavirus.

The first case of the new virus was confirmed on December 31, and it has since been detected in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and the United States. Canada has no plans to follow suit, Tam said. They are still trying to determine whether spread among people is limited or whether it might be spreading in a sustained manner, meaning it easily passes from one person to the next and then onward. Middle-aged and older people appear to be being affected in more numbers at present than children or younger adults although all age groups are at risk.

The World Health Organization decided against declaring the outbreak a global emergency for now. It's not believed people are infectious before they become symptomatic. The first North American case of the Wuhan coronavirus was confirmed to the public in Washington state on Tuesday.

"The Embassy of India has been receiving queries from Indians in Hubei province as well as their relatives in India in connection with the evolving situation of coronavirus infection in China", the embassy press release said.

Majority died this week, according to the NHC.

Normally bustling streets, shopping malls, restaurants and other public spaces in the city of 11 million people were eerily quiet.

Prior to admission, they had stayed at a hotel on the resort island of Sentosa, the ministry said.

"So there's no recommendation to wear a mask when you're going about your regular daily activities". "It could be in a day, it could be in a couple, it could be any time", he said.

He said it was "very likely" that cases would be confirmed in the UK.

There is no confirmation yet on whether he has the Coronavirus.

Cutting off travel and trade with a country dealing with an outbreak is viewed as unlikely to stop disease spread and is likely to discourage countries from being transparent about outbreaks.

The decision "should not be taken as a sign that World Health Organization does not think the situation is serious or that we're not taking it seriously".

"Our health minister is engaged with her partners at the provincial level and we're working with global partners as well to ensure that we have the best response possible".

"There's no need for the general public to panic or take any special measures", he added. While provincial authorities can screen for non-coronavirus diseases, full tests will be conducted at the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg.

Many countries are screening travellers from China for symptoms of the virus, which can cause fever, coughing, breathing difficulties and pneumonia.

A study published Wednesday by Chinese scientists in the Journal of Medical Virology found that the respiratory infection may have originated in the Chinese krait - a highly venomous specious found in central and southern China and Southeast Asia - and the Chinese cobra, CNN reported. Just one person has tested positive for the virus in the U.S.so far, though there are conflicting reports about whether the man, now in Seattle, is in good condition.
