Georgia working to prevent spread of coronavirus to state

Georgia working to prevent spread of coronavirus to state”

According to the Chinese authorities, there are now over 1,970 confirmed coronavirus cases in the country, while the death toll stands at 56.

China also announced further transport restrictions, with more than 1,400 people infected worldwide, a lot of them in China.

Millions of people travelling during the holiday have fueled the spread of the outbreak nationwide and overseas after it began in the city of Wuhan in central China.

According to state-run media Xinhua, the first group of 135 medical workers from hospitals in Shanghai flew to Wuhan on Friday night.

The Lunar New Year holiday, traditionally celebrated by hundreds of millions of Chinese travelling around the country and overseas to see family, began on Friday but has been severely disrupted by the outbreak.

Xi said at a Communist Party leadership meeting on the situation that China was "faced with the grave situation of an accelerating spread" of the virus.

As of 8pm local time on Saturday, the death toll in China had risen to 42, authorities reported.

CAUSE: It's believed the virus came from illegally traded wildlife at an animal market in Wuhan, particularly the kait snake and Chinese cobra.

Chinese nationals from Hubei Province, including Chinese students, will be prohibited from entry, the statement added.

There is no evidence that person-to-person transmission has occurred in Orange County.

Hubei province's Civil Affairs Department deputy director-general Hu Yinghai appealed for masks and protective suits. Many people brought their own chairs.

Ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing said it was halting inter-city services to and from Beijing from Sunday, while the capital will also stop running inter-province shuttle buses.

On January 16, Japan's health ministry reports a confirmed case of a man who had also visited the city.

People might be suspected of having the virus if they show symptoms of the illness and have recently traveled to Wuhan, China, or if they have had contact with someone else who is getting checked for the illness. The findings were reported in Friday's edition of The Lancet medical journal, the South China Morning Post said.

NSW Health said the third man arrived in Sydney on China Eastern Flight MU749 on January 20, which touched down at 11:35am.

Hong Kong has declared a virus emergency, scrapped celebrations and restricted links to mainland China, while Australia confirmed its first four cases on Saturday.

The World Health Organization has classified the outbreak risk in China as "very high" at regional level and as moderate at global level.

Despite this, the disease has spread beyond China.

The Mayor of Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak, said he expected 1,000 new patients in the city, which was stepping up construction of special hospitals.

Yesterday, when they should have been celebrating Lunar New Year's Day, people waiting at one Wuhan hospital complained bitterly.
