United States confirms THIRD case of coronavirus

The death toll rises to 56, with one fatality in Shanghai.

.

The second US case of the new coronavirus was confirmed in Chicago on Friday and before that, the first case was confirmed by the CDC in Washington state on Tuesday.

Earlier today, Beijing announced a nationwide ban on the sale of wildlife in markets, restaurants, and e-commerce platforms.

Reports say the USA has already shut its consulate in Wuhan and airlift the diplomats and some of the stranded Americans to San Francisco where they would be kept under observation.

China's central government deploys hundreds of workers.

The latest figures reported on Sunday cover the past 24 hours and mark an increase of 15 deaths and 688 cases.

They added the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has developed a diagnostic test for the new coronavirus, and is coordinating staff and supplies in order to prepare for the accurate detection of any potential cases. But a growing number of other countries are reporting cases, mainly of people returning from China - especially from Wuhan.

Two of the Chinese patients were treated, and have since recovered and travelled back to China, the Thai health ministry said this week. When an epidemic breaks out, a command is issued.

Deadly coronavirus reaches Ontario

LBC's Correspondent in Beijing, Paddy Fok, reports the Chinese government have set up a special task force to deal with the outbreak.

The respiratory disease has sickened 1,975 people and killed 56, nearly all in Wuhan. It also said it would transport other USA citizens who are at the greatest risk, but it warned that it would have "limited capacity" for private individuals.

On the basis of the two designated hospitals and 61 fever clinics, the megacity chose to transform the 24 local hospitals in batches to provide thousands of beds for patients.

Two people from the Chinese city - a man in his 40s and a woman in her 30s - have been treated in hospital for fever. "The current risk of local transmission remains low".

State health officials said Friday the department is closely monitoring the outbreak and regularly coordinating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Chinese community in Rome said there won't be any public celebrations of the Lunar New Year on February 2 either for the same reason.

Some experts believe the virus is not as risky as the 2002-03 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) that killed almost 800 people, or the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), which has killed more than 700 people since 2012. It is from the coronavirus family, which includes SARS and the common cold, and is named 2019-nCoV.
