The Coronary Virus Outbreak-An Epidemic in China



Image result for virus in china 2020"

World Health Organization have decided not to conclude on declaring the outbreak of a virus in china as a global health emergency. However, they are planning on meeting within some days to acknowledge the degree of the situation(“Coronavirus Live Updates: 1st Death Outside Epicenter Is Reported, but W.H.O. Doesn’t Declare Emergency Yet - The New York Times,” 2020).

The Chinese authorities enforced a lockdown protocol on five cities with an extraordinary effort of containing the outbreak of the virus which has threatened the health of people or made hundreds of people ill; and spread to other parts of the world. The authorities in China have closed transportation lines from Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province. Buses, subways, ferries, airport and train stations are suspended or shut down to any outgoing passengers. The Chinese cities of Huanggang and Ezhou have undertaken the same measures. Smaller cities of Chibi and Zhijiang have developed a travel restrictions(Kuo, 2020).

The Chinese Officials are trying to control the new virus that has spread in the country. There have been 9 casualties and 440 people are sick with the virus. It has been proven that the infection can be contagious among humans. The epidemic virus has spread from Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan to the United States of America. The Coronavirus was first detected in Wuhan, the central city of China (James Griffiths and Nectar Gan, 2020).  A research study in the United Kingdom estimated that the number of infections in Wuhan is being underestimated. The real number is closer to 1,700 which is based on the rate of exposure to the virus in other cities and countries within a short period of time. There was a case of fatality in the United States as a result of the virus on Tuesday the 22nd of January 2020 in Seattle.

The Ministry of Health and Community Protection has confirmed four cases in United Arab Emirates for Corona Virus. It is has been estimated that the virus has caused 132 fatality and infected about 6000 people across the world. A family of four who arrived in United Arab Emirates was found to be infected with the virus. The Ministry made announcement on Twitter that the infected people were Chinese citizens; and they are currently undergoing medical supervision. Also, the Ministry stated that the health of the infected people is stable. The Ministry emphasized that the epidemiological investigation centers in the country are constantly working to report any sign of virus (Nandkeolyar, 2020).


Moving on, the Romanian president of a Microbiology Society, Alexandru Rafila stated on Monday the 27th of January 2020 that the coronavirus is considered to be a public health emergency around the world according to the World Health Organization. Meanwhile, Dr. Adrian Streinu Cercel, manager of the “Matei Bals” Infectious Disease Institute has ensured Romania is not prone to the threat. About 70% of the cases in China have showed mild forms of the virus and the outbreak is mostly in China and not worldwide (Salceanu, 2020)

  1. Some people speculate that the corona virus is an actual conspiracy by rich business men and Pharmaceutical companies in a bid to sell vaccines. I don't know what to make of this stories but it really sounds cruel if it is true.

  2. I also saw a video conversation between a doctor in Wuhan China and her daughter in Toronto Canada. she was crying while telling her daughter they have confirmed over 100,000 cases in one hospital alone. she also said that the media is hiding the severity of the virus. China really needs all the help they can get right now!
