Full List of Coronavirus Effected in world

Hong Kong (CNN)The Wuhan coronavirus has spread throughout the world since the first cases were detected in central China in December. At least 300 people have died and more than 14,000 people have been infected, as the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern.China’s National Health Commission has confirmed the virus can be transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission” — where a virus is passed on due to an infected person sneezing or coughing — as well as by direct contact.There are more than 160 confirmed cases of Wuhan coronavirus in more than 20 countries outside mainland China. Only one person has died outside of mainland China from the virus — a 44-year-old Chinese man in the Philippines.A number of countries, such as the United States and Japan, have evacuated their nationals on flights from Wuhan, capital of Hubei province.This is a full list of places outside mainland China with confirmed cases of the Wuhan coronavirus.

Australia (at least 12 cases)

Over the weekend, South Australia has confirmed its first two cases of coronavirus and Victoria its fourth, bringing Australia’s total to 12.A 60-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman have been confirmed to have novel coronavirus and are in isolation at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, according to a statement posted on the South Australia Health Facebook page.The two patients arrived in Adelaide from Wuhan on January 20.On Wednesday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the government is negotiating plans to evacuate more than 600 Australian nationals from Hubei province. They would be quarantined for 14 days on Christmas Island, an Australian territory that currently hosts a largely empty immigration detention center.The latest Australian government travel advice for China is to “reconsider your need to travel.”

Cambodia (at least 1 case)

Cambodia reported its first case of Wuhan coronavirus on Monday — a 60-year-old Chinese man who flew into the country from Wuhan with three family members. They tested negative for the virus, according to a Ministry of Information statement. The man’s condition was stable and he only showed mild symptoms, it said.

Canada (at least 4 cases)

Canada has a total of four confirmed cases of coronavirus.The fourth confirmed case is a young woman in her 20s who arrived in Toronto from Wuhan on January 23, but was asymptomatic, according to the Ontario Ministry of Health.She started having symptoms on January 24 and was assessed and tested that same day, the Ministry said.The woman initially tested negative at the laboratory, where an original test was done. A second test laid on several days later, in response to a new pathogen, came back weakly positive, and the switch from negative to positive was made on a precautionary level, according to Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health in Ontario.A Canadian couple tested positive in Ontario — both the man and woman had visited Wuhan before getting ill.The Canadian government has warned its citizens against all travel to Hubei province, including the cities of Wuhan, Huanggang and Ezhou. It said the risk of the new coronavirus spreading within Canada remained low.

Finland (at least 1 case)

Finland has one case of coronavirus. The patient, a 32-year-old woman from Wuhan, arrived in the country on January 23, traveling the same day to a village in the northern Lapland region, according to CNN’s affiliate MTV3 Finland.She developed respiratory symptoms and fever on Sunday and went to the emergency room on Tuesday, MTV3 Finland reports.

France (at least 6 cases)

A sixth case of coronavirus has been confirmed in France, according to the head of the country’s health department, Jerome Salomon.The sixth confirmed case is a French doctor who had been in contact with a patient in Asia, a spokesman for France’s health department told CNN.France was the first European country to confirm cases of the Wuhan coronavirus, according to Salomon.The fifth case is the daughter of an 80-year-old Chinese tourist, who is one of the first four confirmed patients, France’s Health Minister Agnes Buzyn said on French television BFMTV.

Germany (at least 8 cases)

Germany has confirmed its eighth case of coronavirus. The latest infection was reported in the state of Bavaria, according to a statement released by the Bavarian Health Ministry Saturday.The patient is a 33-year-old man from Munich who, according to the statement, works at a company in the district of Starnberg, which also employs six of the previously known coronavirus cases in Germany.The German cases are significant because most people diagnosed with the virus outside of China have recently traveled to the country — but several of the German cases did not.

Hong Kong (at least 13 cases)

The semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong, which borders mainland China, has confirmed 13 cases.Hong Kong has temporarily closed some of its borders with China and stopped issuing travel permits to mainland tourists.West Kowloon Station, where high-speed rail runs between the city and mainland China, is closed until further notice. Half of all incoming flights from China have been canceled. Residents of Hubei province, where the virus was first reported, are also being denied entry to the city.Most government offices, except those involved in emergency and essential services, will be closed for the rest of the week. All schools will also be shut until at least March 2.This comes as Hong Kong recalls painful memories from the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2003, a pandemic that killed more than 280 people in the city.

India (at least 1 case)

India’s Ministry of Health and Family confirmed the first case in the country on Thursday, a student in the southern state of Kerala who was studying at Wuhan University.The ministry said in a statement that the patient tested positive for the virus and is in isolation in hospital. No further details were given about the patient, such as age or gender, but the ministry said they were stable and being closely monitored.India’s first case will inevitably raise further fears over the global spread of the virus. China and India currently account for about 37% of the global population of roughly 7.7 billion, with China home to about 1.4 billion people and India to 1.3 billion.

Italy (at least 2 cases)

Italy has confirmed two cases of coronavirus, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said at a news conference in Rome on Thursday.The individuals affected are two Chinese tourists who had arrived in Rome a couple of days previously, Conte said.”We have already prepared all the precautionary measures to isolate these two cases,” Conte said.Italy’s Health Minister Roberto Speranza said the government would try to trace the tourists’ journeys while in Italy, adding that the situation was serious, but under control.”The timeliness of the intervention makes us think that there are no other people exposed,” Ippolito said.

Japan (at least 20 cases)

On Saturday, Japan’s Health Ministry confirmed three additional infections with the new coronavirus, raising the total domestic tally to 20.The new cases are among the 565 Japanese nationals who returned from Wuhan on government-chartered flights earlier in the week. Among the confirmed cases is a man aged in his 30s who has been diagnosed as a disease carrier without symptoms.At least two people with the coronavirus in Japan have no travel history to Wuhan. One, a man in his 60s, is a bus driver who drove tour groups from Wuhan for nine days before getting ill. His is the first case of suspected human-to-human transmission in Japan.A third plane carrying Japanese evacuees from Wuhan arrived in Tokyo on Friday.Notably, the Japanese flights also carried medical supplies for the Chinese government. They included thousands of surgical masks, safety goggles and 50 sets of protective suits.

Macao (at least 7 cases)

Macao, a semi-autonomous city in southern China, has confirmed at least seven cases of the Wuhan coronavirus.The outbreak has had a devastating impact on tourism in the gambling enclave, which relies heavily on mainland Chinese visitors. Gambling is illegal on the mainland and Lunar New Year is usually a particularly busy time for Macao’s casinos. But not this year — tourism to the city has dropped 73.6% year-on-year, the Macao government announced Wednesday.All residents of Hubei province and non-residents who traveled to Hubei in the past 14 days will be denied entry to Macao, until they show a doctor’s letter certifying they are clear, according to Secretary for Administration and Justice Cheong Weng-chon. Anyone who has been to Hubei in the past two weeks is also banned from entering casinos.All public services will be closed for the rest of January, and civil servants are advised to stay home. All primary and secondary schools will be closed until further notice, and all banks are closed until Monday.

Russia has identified its first two cases, both Chinese citizens, Russia’s TASS news agency reported, citing Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Tatyana Golikova.One patient is being treated in the Zabaikalsky region, which borders China, with the second case detected in the Tyumen region in Western Siberia, which borders Kazakhstan, TASS reports.According to Golikova, Russia will begin evacuating its citizens from the Chinese provinces of Wuhan and Hubei, where there are 300 and 341 Russians respectively.

Singapore (at least 13 cases)

Singapore confirmed three additional coronavirus cases on Thursday, making the total number of confirmed cases in the country 13, according to a statement from the Ministry of Health.The new cases are three Chinese women from Wuhan who landed in Singapore on January 21-22.

Coronavirus Live Updates: Death in Philippines Is the First Outside China

As the overall death toll passed 300, health workers in Hong Kong threatened to strike if the territory’s government did not completely close the border with mainland China.

By The New York Times

RIGHT NOW

South Korea and New Zealand have become the latest countries to restrict travel from China.

Here’s what you need to know:

A 44-year-old man in the Philippines has died of the coronavirus, health officials said on Sunday, making him the first known death outside China. The man, a resident of Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the virus, died on Saturday after developing what officials called “severe pneumonia.”

“This is the first known death of someone with 2019-nCoV outside of China,” the World Health Organization’s office in the Philippines said in a statement, using the technical shorthand for the coronavirus.

Philippines health officials said the man had arrived in the country on Jan. 21 with a 38-year-old woman who remains under observation.How Bad Will the Coronavirus Outbreak Get? Here Are 6 Key FactorsHere’s what early research says about how the pathogen behaves and the factors that will determine whether it can be contained.

“In his last few days, the patient was stable and showed signs of improvement; however, the condition of the patient deteriorated within his last 24 hours, resulting in his demise,” the health secretary, Francisco Duque III, said.

The Emergency Committee on the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) under the International Health Regulations (IHR 2005) will be reconvened by the World Health Organization Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Thursday, 30 January.

The meeting is planned to start at 13:30 Geneva time.

The Committee will advise the Director-General on whether the outbreak constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), and what recommendations should be made to manage it.

The Director-General’s decision, following the Committee’s advice, will be made public on WHO’s website and via a press conference. The recommendations will also be made public.

Coronavirus outbreak: Dead man lies on an empty street sight at China’s virus ground zero

WUHAN, China: A grey-haired man wearing a face mask lies dead on the pavement at ground zero of China’s virus epidemic, a plastic shopping bag in one hand.

This photo taken on January 30, 2020 shows officials in protective suits checking on an elderly man wearing a facemask who collapsed and died on a street near a hospital in Wuhan.

On what would typically be a crowded street in Wuhan, an industrial city of 11 million under quarantine, there are only a few passersby and they dare not go near him.

AFP journalists saw the body on Thursday morning, not long before an emergency vehicle arrived carrying police and medical staff in full-body protective suits.

The man lay straight on his back in front of a closed furniture store. Medical staff in blue overalls gently shrouded his body with a blue blanket.

The ambulance left, and police stacked supermarket cardboard boxes to hide the scene.

AFP could not determine how the man, who appeared to be aged in his 60s, had died. AFP contacted police and local health officials afterwards but could not get details on his case.

But the reaction of the police and medical staff in hazmat suits, as well as some of the bystanders, highlighted the fear pervading the city.

Corona Virus Will go more dangerous with in 10 days Chinese Health Superintend

Beijing (CNN)Unlike in the United States and elsewhere, it’s unusual for a Chinese leader to personally proclaim his involvement in countrywide matters. Not only is it considered self-evident, but he also doesn’t need to — state-run media produces fawning coverage of his every move on a daily basis.But on Tuesday, that’s precisely what Chinese President Xi Jinping did, telling the visiting head of the World Health Organization he had “always been personally in command” and always “personally organizing deployments” in China’s effort to contain the deadly Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.Since the coronavirus epidemic turned into a national crisis on January 20, when a government adviser confirmed the possibility on live television of human-to-human transmission, Xi has maintained something of a low profile, rarely appearing in newscasts connected to the outbreak.He has issued “important instructions” at least three times on the outbreak and chaired a conclave of top officials to discuss government responses on Lunar New Year’s Day, which fell on January 25 this year.But many were caught off guard the next day when Premier Li Keqiang, officially the No. 2 leader but seen as sidelined under Xi by many analysts, was made the head of a super commission in charge of combating the epidemic.Sporting a face mask, Li on Monday toured Wuhan — the central Chinese city that has recorded the overwhelming majority of the cases and deaths — to reassure overworked medical workers and jittery ordinary citizens, pledging government resources and receiving loud cheers.Although all state media reports stressed that Li was “entrusted by Xi” to visit Wuhan, the absence of China’s most powerful leader in decades from the epicenter has generated a swirl of reactions — often in coded words — on the country’s tightly monitored and censored social media platforms.”Having concentrated so much power in his hands, Xi’s been heading countless commissions and groups — except this one,” noted Pin Ho, the founder of Mirror Group, an influential Chinese-language media company based in New York that publishes books and websites on Chinese politics.”And this one is dealing with the most important national, or even global, issue of the day — about life and death,” he added. “This mistake may become his political Waterloo.”

Potential backlash

Ho believes that reports from Xi’s aides, who he says are afraid of relaying any bad news to their boss, likely downplayed the situation in Wuhan initially.On January 23, the day Wuhan was placed under virtual quarantine — an unprecedented move to contain the virus that has also trapped millions of residents inside the city — Xi made no mention of the outbreak in a speech celebrating the Lunar New Year in Beijing.Given Li’s past experience in dealing with public health crises, some analysts argue that letting the Premier head the commission was a sensible choice, but many others view it differently.”Li was selected for political reasons,” said Willy Lam, an adjunct professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong’s Center for China Studies and well-connected political analyst. “If the situation deteriorated further, Li would have to take the blame.”Instead, online video clips of Li chatting and mingling with doctors, workers and shoppers in Wuhan have gone viral.”Li had enough guts to go to Wuhan but not Xi,” said Lam. “Compared to SARS, (then-President) Hu Jintao visited a few places severely affected by SARS, but Xi is now staying safely in Beijing.”Echoing Lam, Ho said that a backlash from both within the Party and the public emerged quickly, prompting Xi to take the extraordinary step of underscoring his own crucial role in the country’s effort to contain the virus while meeting the WHO delegation on Tuesday.

Possible scape goats

For now, most Chinese people’s frustration and anger appear to have focused on local officials at the epicenter, especially Wuhan Mayor Zhou Xianwang.Zhou shocked the nation last Sunday by acknowledging that 5 million people — all potential carriers of the coronavirus — had left the city by the time the lockdown went into effect in the morning of January 23.Many have also accused him of trying to cover up the outbreak from the onset — often pointing to a local police statement on January 1 announcing that eight “rumor-mongers” were “dealt with in accordance with law” for posting information about pneumonia cases spreading across the city.In a live interview televised around the country, Zhou insisted that he wasn’t legally allowed to disclose information about infectious diseases without approval from “higher authorities.” “If people want accountability, I’m willing to be sacked to satisfy their demand,” he added.Analysts say, without naming anyone, Zhou hinted that all political decision-making requires a stamp of approval from the very top — and therefore paralyzing swift action.Ho even suggested that Zhou’s offer to step down was an act of open defiance instead of an admission of guilt — as officials all understand that only the Party leadership, not themselves, can decide their fate.”Zhou knew he’d be the fall guy,” said Ho. “And he threw down the gauntlet to challenge the power structure.”And that’s a problem that Xi could do without. Some now worry the situation may push him to centralize power even more, as he faces perhaps his biggest political challenge to date.Unlike the Hong Kong protest movement or the trade war with the US, analysts say he can’t easily blame hostile foreign forces for a homegrown epidemic — ostensibly exacerbated by initial mishandling in Wuhan.”Strongmen often rely on the halo of being national heroes, being brave and adventurous,” said Ho. “If Xi takes the risk to go to Wuhan now, his political reputation would bounce back — but of course there is the risk of infection due to the uncertainty of the virus.”
