Dead falls battle cats and dogs in the streets of China’s Hubei province. The province is being hit by a devastating outbreak of a fatal strn of coronavirus that causes a respiratory disease in humans called Covid-19. The city of Jingzhou is under lock down and residents have been given strict instructions to stay indoors. They must wear face masks and take cover from the sun, according to the official Xinhua News Agency. The news agency says the outbreak was identified in December. However, the first reports of it emerged last week, prompting the government to take measures to stop its spread. At the moment, a state of emergency is in place. According to the National Health Commission, there have been more than 2,600 confirmed cases across 28 provinces and one province-run city. Some 30 people have died. However, the real number is believed to be much higher. Many residents say they have been sickened or have had to leave the province to seek medical help.
Hubei province is a huge manufacturing area of China, accounting for more than 30% of the country’s GDP and employing half of the total workforce. It has a vast and sprawling network of high-speed trn lines, factories and highways. In recent years, its infrastructure has become a major source of pride for the country.
The virus that caused the outbreak was first identified in the southern Chinese city of Wuhan and, since then, it has spread rapidly. The government now believes it has reached Hubei province, and the disease has now spread to neighbouring Guangdong, Shandong and Henan provinces.
It has infected more than 2,600 people, killed at least 30 and infected more than 30 others in other provinces across China. According to the state news agency, the Chinese Centre for Disease Control (CDC) sd on Wednesday that it is “actively working” to control the outbreak. A state of emergency is in place and there are plans to quarantine 1 million people. More than 200,000 people have been quarantined in the Hubei province, according to the local government, while others are being placed in residential centres and hotels. A total of 50 million people will be placed under quarantine. The government has also urged people to donate blood to help meet a demand for plasma.
Officials are also reporting that some 1,000 people are thought to be infected in the neighbouring cities of Beijing and Tianjin. “We have been in close contact with neighbouring provinces and cities for epidemic control,” sd the Hubei Provincial Health Commission. It added that the number of cases has been reduced in some places. It also warned people to wash their hands frequently. The WHO sd: “The outbreak in China is moving from a localised situation to a national epidemic. “China needs to continue to strengthen control measures for the prevention and contnment of this epidemic and ensure that this does not spread across the rest of China or other countries. “There is no sign that this will slow down in the coming days.
The coronavirus first emerged in Hubei province in the city of Wuhan. It began when a number of patients with a fever were admitted to a local hospital. However, the government and health authorities did not take it seriously.
As a result, it spread in the city of Wuhan. Initially, doctors were unable to get hold of the virus and officials initially thought it was a seasonal flu-like virus.
But, in December, doctors in Wuhan began to take action. They began to trace contacts and to try and identify the source. It has since been revealed that the virus spread to another 11 cities across the province.
It now has been confirmed to have spread to at least 27 other provinces and regions across China.
In the latest development, it has been reported that the virus has been detected in the blood of two patients in the Beijing area.
In China, as in most countries, there are many strns of coronavirus which are not the same and can be fatal for some, while others may have little or no effect.
However, the strn which has caused the outbreak in Hubei province is a type called the nCoV-Wuhan-Hu-1, first identified in January.
It is a new virus strn which is different from the ones that exist in the area. However, there is no evidence that it can be transmitted from person to person.
It has so far been reported that more than 300 people are under treatment, according to the BBC.
However, in most countries, there have been no deaths in patients infected with this virus.
Some of the cases have been mild and the most serious have been in patients with chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
There is no specific treatment for the virus at the moment, but doctors are trying to identify which drugs would be effective agnst it and how it can be prevented.
The World Health Organisation has advised that travellers returning from China should self-isolate for two weeks and those who have been in contact with anyone with a fever and respiratory illness should seek immediate medical advice and take the necessary precautions.
There are fears that the virus will spread to other countries. However, in Beijing, there are signs that the outbreak in the city has been brought under control.
Earlier this week, the first two cases were confirmed in the capital. They were a 58-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman. They are thought to have travelled to the Chinese city of Wuhan, which has been under lockdown in the wake of the outbreak.
A third case was confirmed in Beijing on Wednesday. The person was also a Chinese citizen and is in a stable condition.
As well as the Chinese, there are concerns that the outbreak could spread to other countries. Last week, the Chinese government announced it was working with countries around the world to try and contn the outbreak.
