After a diagnosis including three hospitals, he was an ordinary Bacterial pneumonia, not even a virus, has now been diverted from West China and has been infused in a general hospital. This registration form does not know who was photographed and posted online. "

I think it is good for the media to fulfill its responsibility for verification. Do n’t make a misinformation, the media misinformation is even worse. ”Mr. Wang ’s family said that the local police have attached great importance to the matter and are investigating the source of the picture.

      Authorities in Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, report a third death and more than 130 new cases over the weekend
      Jump in new infections points to person-to-person contagion, Sars specialist says

      The previously unknown coronavirus infection that has killed three people in the Chinese city of Wuhan may be moving by human-to-human transmission, with infections reported in other parts of the country and overseas, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) and other doctors.

      The WHO stressed the need for countries to undertake “preparedness activities”, such as public announcements and ensuring ample testing and treatment supplies, and continuing to share information to help the international response.

      The advisory came as Chinese President Xi Jinping called on officials to do everything they could to prevent the disease from spreading...

      ...The number of new cases showed there was human-to-human transmission, Yi Guan, director of the State Key Laboratory of Emerging Infectious Diseases at the University of Hong Kong, Beijing-based news outlet Caixin reported on Monday.

      “I admit that the virus did not pass from person to person in the early stage, but the situation has evolved for more than a month, and the number of new cases has risen. ‘Human-to-human’ is no longer a word game,” Guan was quoted as saying.

      Guan’s work led to the identification of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) coronavirus, which killed more than 700 people around the world in a 2002-03 outbreak that originated in China, according to the university’s website.

      “The virus’ ability to spread and adapt to the population, as well as its onset and pathogenicity, is similar to the way Sars developed in the early stage,” Guan said in the Caixin report. “I hope we can learn from the lessons of Sars and hope we don’t approach prevention and control of the [current] situation in a similar way as Sars, otherwise it will negatively affect people and the world.”...
