Coronavirus: Death toll reached 1,457 in China whereas 66,495 Cases have been identified nationwide

During the auspicious time of Lunar New Year – the Spring festival of China, a deadly outbreak of coronavirus has engulfed the city of Wuhan, considered the epicenter of the epidemic which is home to over 11 million people.

So far, the virus has killed 1,457 people in China, and the confirmed cases have risen sharply to 66.495 in number. As per the state media, the death of an 80-year-old woman in Hainan province is the first victim the outbreak has claimed.

Facts About Coronavirus

The virus was first identified in the 1960s, but its origin is yet to be discerned. Coronavirus spreads just like other cold-causing viruses. Symptoms of harboring the virus could be: coughing, sneezing, having a stuffy nose and sore throat. Touching an infected person’s hand or face may also transmit the virus from human to human.

Though the viruses have different types; some of them are common and curable. However, there are also severe outbreaks like the recent one in China which the World Health Organization has confirmed as the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-n-CoV). It has been studied that the virus has been passed on from animals to humans, but it has not been previously identified in people.

As per the available reports, the source of the outbreak has been identified as a seafood market in the central Chinese city of Wuhan. To be precise, the city’s health commission says that the infection broke out between December 12 and 29. However, the animal outbreak has not been confirmed yet.

The market, which has been shut down after the epidemic, was home to China’s food stalls trading in different animals, snakes, marmots, and poultry. The market is also known as the ‘wet’ market as the people of China likes their meat to be ‘warm’.

Though the epicenter of this outbreak is in China, the virus is now traveling from China to other countries. Symptoms of the infection of this virus have been found in people from the United States, France, Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, Macau, Japan, and the Philippines.

Further, the virus has escalated very quickly as, within a month of the outbreak, 1,457 people have died in China, 1 in Hong Kong and the Philippines each and 67,091 cases have been identified worldwide.

Macau, populated with mainland tourists, has confirmed five cases as of January 27 and eight cases in Hong Kong. In Taiwan, four cases have been identified, whereas France confirmed three, Thailand has confirmed cases of fourteen, Singapore five, while Nepal got its first too. Australia has also established five confirmed cases of the virus.

India is also on high-risk alerts from the virus outbreak. The Health Ministry has stepped to scan passengers coming from China at the Indian airport itself. People who show symptoms of the virus are being quarantined in cities such as Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi.

On January 28, three men who flew down from China walked into the RML hospital of Delhi with a complaint of similar symptoms. They have been kept under observation. Similarly, another man in his 20’s studying medicine in China who flew down to the Pink City for post-graduation has been admitted to the SMS hospital for suspected coronavirus infection.
