Doctor’s practice in lock-down about suspected coronavirus case if two members of parliament go into ‘self-isolation’

A general practice has stalled due to a suspected coronavirus case, while two MPs place themselves in “self-isolation,” and a Channel 4 employee from the London office of the broadcaster is accompanied by people in hazmat suits about the fear that the virus might continue to spread in the UK.

Kingston Crescent Surgery in Portsmouth, Hampshire, closed its doors today at 4.30 p.m. after a woman who had recently flown into Gatwick caused an alarm at the center.

Labor MPs Lilian Greenwood and Alex Sobel, who both attended a bus conference in Westminster, attended by a coronavirus patient, also today revealed that they had canceled upcoming engagement because public health advised England to stay at home for 14 days, the incubation period of the virus .

A Channel 4 employee was also taken from London’s headquarters and taken to corona virus tests today. The staff member felt unwell after returning from a vacation in China.

It is because cases of the virus – called COVID-19 – stay in the UK at nine o’clock after a woman was taken to the London hospital and tested positive for the virus.

A doctor from the general practitioner said they closed after consulting Public Health England and had moved the patient somewhere else because the operation was deeply cleaned.

“We ended with a suspected case of coronavirus,” he said. “We follow the guidelines of Public Health England and are in contact with them and NHS England.”

“This is evolving from minute to minute for us, but at the moment it is only a suspicion. We have transferred the care elsewhere so that patients will be cared for. “

A note on the group’s website read: “Due to coronavirus, our Kingston Crescent Surgery is closed for in-depth cleaning until further notice.

“All travelers who develop relevant symptoms (for example, respiratory symptoms, shortness of breath, cough, fever), although mild, within 14 days of return or transition from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau should not attend the training, but should stay at home and call NHS 111 immediately for advice. “

A patient waiting for an appointment this afternoon said that all patients had been ordered from the operation due to an “emergency”. Patient care is now provided at Cosham Park House until the operation is considered suitable for reopening.

The virus carrier was reportedly one of the 250 delegates at the UK Bus Summit at the QEII Center on February 6 (Boris Johnson's Buses Minister, Baroness Vere of Norbiton speaking at the summit)

Both affected MPs confirmed that they had no symptoms today, including cough and fever, and had not been told to isolate themselves, but chose to do so as a precaution.

It is after it was revealed today that one of Britain’s nine confirmed coronavirus cases attended the UK Bus Summit at the QEII Center on February 6, just a stone’s throw from Parliament.

The virus carrier was reportedly one of the 250 people at the conference, where the star speaker was Boris Johnson’s minister of Buses, Baroness Vere of Norbiton, who was posing with a fully electric bus outside the venue.

MailOnline understands that the coronavirus patient attending the conference was not the most recent case diagnosed in London on Wednesday.

It has been eight days since the bus conference, so anyone who attended will be considered in public on Thursday, February 20 if they are not sick.

A Channel 4 employee, known as no journalist, has also been placed in self-isolation at home awaiting the results of his coronavirus test.

The announcements come this morning after a shock at Heathrow Airport, where up to eight planes were kept on the asphalt due to possible coronavirus cases on board.

Other developments in the coronavirus outbreak today include:

  • Detergents wearing hazmat suits disinfected a 37-storey tower building in London, where a resident with fever was accompanied in an ambulance
  • Nearly 65,000 patients worldwide have now contracted the virus, with a death toll of nearly 1,400 since the outbreak began in late December
  • A total of 2,964 people in the UK were tested for the corona virus, 2,955 of which were negative and nine positively confirmed
  • Top scientists have ruled out that the corona virus has developed and dispel rumors that the virus never seen before had escaped from a laboratory
  • Churchgoers were encouraged to avoid community wine and handshaking when they “cough and sneeze” in coronavirus warning
  • Amazon and eBay have been accused of cashing in on the coronavirus outbreak with comic T-shirts that make fun of the crisis

Lilian Greenwood MP said she canceled public engagements as “extra careful” after being warned by Public Health England that she might have been in contact with a coronavirus patient before being diagnosed

In a Twitter thread, Labor MP Alex Sobel said that he had also been to the conference and would cancel his public engagements

LUXURY LONDON TOWER BLOCK DISCOVERED BY EMPLOYEES IN HAZMAT PACKAGES

Coronavirus fears are on the rise in London after cleaners wearing hazmat suits were depicted as a 37-storey disinfecting tower building where a resident with fever was escorted in an ambulance.

Workers in protective suits were sent to One The Elephant yesterday morning after the UK’s ninth case of SARS-2 virus – a Chinese woman taking an Uber to A&E at Lewisham Hospital – was recorded the night before.

Various Chinese students are thought to live in the exclusive tower building, which has 254 apartments, including luxury apartments with views of the capital, its own leisure center and a roof garden.

Residents claim to have been left in the dark as to why the lobby was cleaned by men in hazmat suits and face masks. The suspected patient is supposed to be a Chinese student who has recently arrived from China.

The Telegraph reports that the resident, who will not identify health officials because of patient confidentiality, was isolated in a common area of ​​the building awaiting an ambulance.

A Chinese student, who lives in the tower, told the newspaper: “The reception said someone had a fever and an ambulance was called to see if he was all right. I’m not sure who they were. “

And roommate, 21-year-old student Yen Chen, added, “I’ve seen two people wearing masks since this morning wearing insulation suits as they clean the lobby floor.”

She believed the cleaners were using antibacterial spray – but admitted she had not heard from the building’s operators about the suspected case. One of her friends is gripped by the fears and hardly leaves his room.

A source told MailOnline that the student had been taken to the hospital yesterday morning and added: “The man was taken in an ambulance by doctors wearing protective clothing.

“He is a Chinese student who is around 28 years old. He recently came from China. Medical staff has since thoroughly cleaned his apartment. And now it just continues in the apartment building. “

Mr Sobel, Member of Parliament for Leeds North West, tweeted: ‘I attended the British bus summit on 6 February, where a participant was present who tested positive for corona virus.

‘Although I have been informed that I am running a very low risk, I have asked 111 to be formally assessed.

“As a precaution, we canceled all engagements until next Thursday when the potential 14-day incubation period ends.”

Mr. Sobel added: “If you think you have been in contact with someone who has a corona virus, isolate yourself and call 111 for an assessment.”

In a later statement he added: ‘The advice we have been given is that as long as you feel good, you can continue as normal. Because I and Lilian, another Member of Parliament, have come into contact with many people … we have taken this extra precaution, “The Guardian reported.

Ms. Greenwood, Member of Parliament for Nottingham South, tweeted: “Eight days ago I spoke at the UK Bus Summit. This morning I received this advice from Public Health England.

‘I feel great, but to be extra careful, I cancel my public engagement until 20 February. Sorry for the inconvenience.’

Attached was a letter from Public Health England (PHE) to anyone who develops flu-like symptoms to isolate themselves at home and call the NHS ‘111 helpline.

The email said, “It is unlikely that the level of contact you may have had with the case at the top is important, but we will take a precaution and inform you.”

Dr. Yimmy Chow, health protection consultant at PHE, said: “One of our main priorities was to identify people who we believe have been in close contact with confirmed cases of corona virus to provide public health advice because of increased risk of developing the virus to catch.

“It is unlikely that the level of contact conference delegates had with the case was significant, but we have taken a precautionary measure and informed them of the situation.”

Also present were David Brown, general manager of bus company Go-Ahead, and Gareth Powell, head of the Transport for London bus network.

Others in the panel with Mrs. Greenwood were Laura Murdoch from Transport Scotland and Graham Vidler, chief executive of the Confederation of Passenger Transport.

More delegates were Clare Haigh from the Greener Journeys campaign group; Liverpool City Councilor, Liam Robinson; Mark Fowles, from Nottingham City Transport; Robert Drewery, a director at bus manufacturer Optare; Lynn Cramman from Cobalt Business Park; David Tucker from the Federation of Small Businesses; Tom Thackray from the Confederation of British Industry and Ojay McDonald from the Association of Town & City Management.

People from all over the country attended the summit, which was held in one of the busiest parts of London.

The coronavirus patient who attended the conference was not the Chinese woman, the ninth case in the UK.

MailOnline understands that the infected person was actually one of three patients in Brighton whose identity has not yet been revealed. The other three in the coastal city are ‘super-spreader’ Steve Walsh and two doctors.

Patients’ presence in central London at a full conference will frighten hundreds of people in the transport sector amid growing public concern about the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

FRIDAY BRINGS ANOTHER SPIKE IN CORONAVIRUS FALLEN IN CHINA

China has again reported a sharp increase in the number of people infected with the coronavirus killer, with the death toll now nearly 1,400.

The National Health Commission said yesterday that 121 more deaths were recorded, as well as 5,090 new confirmed cases.

The number of reported cases has risen faster after the heaviest province has changed its method of counting.

There are now nearly 64,000 confirmed cases on mainland China, of which 1,380 have died according to the national authority.

Hubei Province is now recording cases based on a doctor’s diagnosis and before being confirmed by laboratory tests.

The acceleration of the number of cases does not necessarily mean a sudden increase in new infections of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

This morning Heathrow Airport was tainted by concerns about the presence of the virus in London when up to eight aircraft were detained due to fears that passengers on board had the corona virus.

Travelers on the United Airlines flight 901 from San Francisco were told by the captain that they should remain in their seats after landing because someone could have the infectious virus.

Andy West, from Henley-on-Thames, told MailOnline passengers that they could be on the runway for a while because ‘seven other planes’ had also suspected cases.

He revealed that flight personnel brought a passenger to the back of the plane without wearing protective clothing or face masks and waited for health officials to arrive.

Passengers had to fill in health forms before they were allowed to leave 25 minutes later and they were not told if anyone on the plane had the virus.

Public Health officials England and Heathrow refused to confirm or deny this morning’s events that may have affected hundreds of people.

But a statement from United Airlines confirmed that his plane was locked.

It said: “Our team at London Heathrow Airport today offers assistance with regard to United flight 901 (San Francisco-London Heathrow), following reports of someone becoming unwell on board.

“The safety of our customers and employees is our top priority and we continue to work closely with local authorities.”

London has been alert to more coronavirus cases after the capital’s first confirmed patient brought himself to A&E on Sunday in a Uber and entered a public area of ​​Lewisham Hospital – against strict advice to stay home and call NHS 111.

Two health workers who came in contact with the Chinese woman at the hospital were told to isolate themselves and the taxi driver’s account was temporarily suspended.

The newest coronavirus patient went to A&E in Lewisham in an Uber. When it turned out she might have been infected with the disease, an ambulance was called to take her home after testing

eBay removes T-shirts with coronavirus slogans including ‘Wuhan city tours’ but they are still available on Amazon

Amazon and eBay are cashing in on the coronavirus outbreak with comic T-shirts that ridicule the crisis and have killed more than 1,300 people worldwide.

A £ 15.45 shirt on eBay said, “I survived the Coronavirus and all I got was this worthless T-shirt.”

Others on the auction site mock the city in China at the epicenter of the outbreak with a decorated with “Wuhan City Tours” and another saying: “Just arrived from Wuhan.”

Another for £ 10.99 had the Corona beer logo written with “Corona Virus” instead.

The woman, who contracted a corona virus in China, “presented” herself at Lewisham Hospital before being sent home to await the results of the tests.

She was taken to St. Thomas on Wednesday after her test results had returned positively. She is supposed to live with family in London and is supposed to be in her late twenties or early thirties.

Official advice from PHE states that anyone suspected of having coronavirus should stay home, call NHS 111 and wait for transportation to the nearest pod of the hospital.

The Chinese patient was the first case in London and doctors fear that the rise of the disease in the capital will cause it to spread rapidly.

In the midst of fear of the virus in the capital, people have avoided London’s Chinatown in Soho.

The normally busy tourist hotspot was eerily deserted last night, with restaurants left empty just weeks after Chinese New Year.

Doctors warned that the London Underground could be a hotbed for the virus, that could survive for hours on handrails and spread through people’s breath.

Mother of the youngest suspected corona virus victim in the UK says she is terrified that she will lose him

According to his mother Stephanie Adlam, the eight-month-old James Adlam has ‘all the symptoms’ related to the virus, including a boiling temperature, coughing attacks, runny nose and extreme fatigue.

She says her terrified family says they live in hell because James’s four-year-old sister may have been exposed.

James, with haemorrhage hemophilia and a long-term lung disease, is now at home.

He was treated for a leg injury by a doctor who was later confirmed to have the virus.

The family is now anxiously waiting for the test results to find out if the boy has the disease.

Dr. Robin Thompson, an expert in mathematical epidemiology at Oxford University, said: “In general, the risk of long-term transmission from person to person is greater if the first case is in a densely populated area. This is exacerbated by the fact that London is a transport hub and the metro can provide a network for spreading the virus quickly. “

Yesterday morning paramedics in hazmat suits came to a flat in Paddington, central London, after a patient had reported symptoms. Video footage shows a man in a black hoodie walking in an ambulance at 9.45 am with two staff members in full body coats.

One of the doctors would have told bystanders that there was “a confirmed case in the building” and asked if people could take photos.

Elsewhere, two general practices were closed after patients with suspicious symptoms showed up unannounced.

The Ritchie Street Health Center in Islington, North London, posted a message on its website that it would be closed until today “due to the corona virus.”

However, it has been found that in practice no patient or staff has tested positive for the virus – and it remains unclear why management has decided to close.

NHS officials say the move was a precautionary move after a patient was tested for the virus after the appearance of the practice with symptoms.

Church of England advises on reducing coronavirus risk

In Thursday’s new guidelines, the CofE said that the current government opinion did not suggest that sharing a “common cup” during the services of the Holy Communion should be suspended.

‘For years the government has advised that’ in a pandemic it is wise to take precautions to limit the spread of diseases by not sharing common food and drink barrels. ”

COVID-19 has NOT been declared a pandemic, “according to the guidelines published on the church website.

It said that parishioners with ‘coughing and sneezing’ should already be encouraged to receive communion in ‘only one kind’ and ‘refrain from shaking hands during The Peace’.

An integral part of Christian worship, Holy Communion, also known as the Eucharist, is that worshipers receive sacred bread and wine in memory of the Last Supper taken by Jesus and his disciples.

During communion services, municipalities also observe ‘peace’, a pause in procedures where people usually shake hands with the people around them.

In its new guidance, the Church said: “It is also the best practice for churches to have hand sanitizers available for parishioners to use.

The Ferns Medical Practice in Farnham, Surrey, said a deep cleanup was taking place after a patient came in after a visit to “one of the affected coronavirus areas.”

Approximately 2,512 people in the UK have been tested since last month. Patients with a suspected corona virus have taken cotton swabs from their nose and throat and have been sent to one of the 12 UK laboratories.

The results usually come back within 48 hours – although they can be reversed within 24 hours – and the NHS can test up to 1,000 patients a day.

Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty said officials hoped to delay the spread of the corona virus in this country until the summer.

He told the BBC Radio 4 Today program: “Delay is the next phase of what we have to do, because if we are going to get an outbreak in the UK – this is an if, not a when – but if we do that, if we put it back on time in the summer period, away from the winter pressure on the NHS, it’s a big advantage to buy us a little more time to better understand the virus …

He added that although it was “very likely” that the UK would see more cases, the disease could be “tempered” as the weather got warmer.

The head of the NHS, Simon Stevens, said that to limit the spread, many more patients at home should isolate themselves if they had suspicious symptoms.

He praised the coronavirus evacuees who left the Wirral yesterday after 14 days of isolation, and said that the ‘guests’ of Arrowe Park Hospital had set an important example because he acknowledged that many more of us should be isolating in the coming weeks. period to reduce the spread of this virus’.

Passagiers op een cruiseschip hebben de toegang tot vijf verschillende landen geweigerd door Cambodja

Passagiers op een cruiseschip dat werd weggestuurd van havens in Azië vanwege de angst dat ze het nieuwe coronavirus zouden kunnen dragen, begonnen vrijdag eindelijk in Cambodja aan boord te gaan.

De sterke premier Hun Sen van Cambodja verwelkomde ongeveer 100 toeristen die bloemen en sjaals kregen toen ze aan land kwamen na een onzekere twee weken op zee.

De Westerdam zou zijn 2.257 passagiers en bemanning meenemen op een 14-daagse cruise rond Oost-Azië, beginnend in Hong Kong op 1 februari en eindigend op zaterdag in Yokohama, Japan.

Maar het schip werd geblokkeerd door Japan, Guam, de Filippijnen, Taiwan en Thailand vanwege de angst dat het iemand met een nieuw virus vervoerde dat nu ongeveer 1.400 mensen heeft gedood en 64.000 ziek heeft gemaakt, voornamelijk in China.

Cambodja – een trouwe bondgenoot van Beijing die elk jaar grote sommen Chinees geld ontvangt – kondigde deze week aan dat de boot in Sihanoukville kon aanmeren.

Tientallen jubelende passagiers profiteerden van hun nieuw gevonden vrijheid en bezochten een nabijgelegen strand, terwijl sommigen Hun Sen – de heerser van Cambodja gedurende 35 jaar – omhelsden toen ze van boord gingen. Eén man kuste zelfs de grond.

‘Cambodja besteedt meer aandacht aan mensenrechten … we respecteren de rechten van de meer dan 2.000 mensen op de boot,’ zei Hun Sen, genietend van de zeldzame positieve focus op een leiderschap dat vaker wordt gehamerd voor misbruik van rechten.

‘We hebben geen rijkdom zoals een rijk land, maar we hebben wel sympathie voor de passagiers die op het schip zijn gestrand.’

Alle passagiers mogen uitstappen, zei Hun Sen, nadat er geen gevallen van het coronavirus aan boord waren gevonden.

De ontwikkelingen komen als ouders van een baby in Brighton vrezen dat hij het coronavirus kan hebben nadat hij werd behandeld door een van de besmette huisartsen in de stad.

Van ten minste twee artsen in Brighton is bekend dat ze de bug hebben betrapt terwijl ze op vakantie waren met de ‘super-spreader’-zakenman, Steve Walsh, die hem in Singapore ving.

De acht maanden oude heeft ‘alle symptomen’ die verband houden met het virus, waaronder een kooktemperatuur, hoestaanvallen, loopneus en extreme vermoeidheid, volgens zijn moeder Stephanie Adlam.

Ze zegt dat haar doodsbange familie zegt dat ze ‘in de hel’ leven omdat de vierjarige zus van James mogelijk ook is blootgesteld.

James, met bloedafwijking hemofilie en een langdurige longaandoening, bevindt zich nu thuis.

De familie werd woensdag door paramedici in volledige hazmat-pakken naar Worthing A&E gebracht voor tests. Ze wachten vol spanning op de resultaten die vandaag terugkomen.

De vader van de jongen zei: ‘Mijn kleine jongen heeft hemofilie en een longaandoening, dus hij is al arm.

‘Mijn ex-partner heeft hem dinsdag opgenomen om uit te checken. We namen hem gisterochtend terug en toen we rond 13.00 uur thuiskwamen, kregen we een telefoontje van Worthing A&E.

‘Ze zeiden dat zowel mijn zoon als zijn moeder direct contact hadden gehad met een bevestigd geval van coronavirus, en zeiden dat we thuis moesten blijven.’

Hij zei dat zijn beide kinderen ‘griepachtige symptomen hebben, alles wat met het virus te maken heeft’.

Minister van Volksgezondheid Matt Hancock zei eerder deze week dat de uitbraak van coronavirus een ‘ernstige en dreigende’ bedreiging voor het Britse publiek is.

Voorlopige ‘pods’ voor coronavirus-isolatie zijn in ziekenhuizen in Engeland opgedoken omdat het land alert is op nieuwe gevallen van de ziekte.

De NHS heeft alle ziekenhuizen opdracht gegeven om de isolatiecabines op te zetten, zodat ze mensen daarheen kunnen sturen als ze ervan verdacht worden SARS-CoV-2 te hebben.

Foto’s laten zien dat roestige draagbare cabines en vensterloze containers worden gebruikt voor het doel op het terrein buiten de hoofdgebouwen van ziekenhuizen of in parkeergarages.

Gezondheidswerkgevers hebben gezegd dat er voorzieningen moeten zijn om verdachte patiënten weg te houden van het grote publiek, terwijl ze telefonisch worden beoordeeld door artsen.

Ziekenhuizen in Londen, Hartlepool, Stevenage, Preston, Blackpool, Eastbourne, Brighton en Bournemouth zijn gezien met de pods buiten.

Een brief van twee weken geleden van NHS Engeland aan ziekenhuisdirecteuren gaf hen de instructie om de pods op vrijdag 7 februari in gebruik te nemen.

Het zei: ‘Als onderdeel van het beheer van de zorg in noodafdelingen, wordt aan trusts gevraagd om een’ Coronavirus Priority Assessment Pod ‘te organiseren, wat betekent dat mensen met symptomen die wijzen op een infectie snel worden beoordeeld, terwijl andere patiënten ook passende zorg blijven krijgen .’

In de brief stond dat de pod een telefoon moet hebben die 24 uur per dag beschikbaar is, zodat bezorgde patiënten op elk gewenst moment met een gespecialiseerd responsteam kunnen praten.

Er moeten ook duidelijke borden en posters zijn die mensen de pod sturen zodat ze niet in contact hoeven te komen met personeel – mensen mogen niet zomaar de pods in dwalen, maar moeten er eerst naar worden verwezen.

‘S Nachts rapporteerde China opnieuw een sterke toename van het aantal mensen dat besmet was met de dodelijke ziekte.

The National Health Commission said yesterday that 121 more deaths were recorded, as well as 5,090 new confirmed cases.

The number of reported cases has risen faster after the heaviest province has changed its method of counting.

There are now nearly 64,000 confirmed cases on mainland China, of which 1,380 have died according to the national authority.

ONTHULD: DE BRITONEN GEÏNFECTEERD MET CORONAVIRUS – EN WAAR WORDEN ZE BEHANDELD?

Gevallen in het VK en waar ze worden verzorgd:

Newcastle: Twee Chinese onderdanen die met coronavirus naar het VK kwamen en ziek werden in een hotel York. De ene is een student in de stad en de andere is een familielid. Het waren de eerste twee gevallen op Britse bodem en werden op 31 januari bevestigd. Ze worden behandeld in de Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

Steve Walsh: Het eerste Britse coronavirus-slachtoffer werd bekend als een super-spreader. Hij pakte het virus op in Singapore en vloog daarna voor een skivakantie in Frankrijk, waar hij ten minste 11 mensen leek te hebben besmet. Hij werd op 6 februari vanuit Brighton naar het St. Thomas ‘ziekenhuis in Londen gebracht, maar werd na herstel hersteld op 12 februari.

Dr Catriona Saynor, die op vakantie ging met de heer Walsh en haar man, Bob, en hun drie kinderen, wordt beschouwd als de vierde patiënt in het VK met de diagnose coronavirus. Haar man en zoon van negen werden ook gediagnosticeerd maar bleven in Frankrijk. Ze werd op 9 februari vanuit Brighton naar een ziekenhuis in Londen gebracht. Ze wordt verondersteld in de Royal Free in Camden te zijn.

Nog vier mensen in Brighton werden gediagnosticeerd en waren alle ‘bekende contacten’ van de super-spreader en men denkt dat ze in hetzelfde Franse resort zijn gebleven. Men staat bekend als een A&E arts en wordt verondersteld te hebben gewerkt in Worthing Hospital. Een ander woonde op 6 februari een busconferentie in Westminster bij. Ze worden allemaal behandeld in Londen.

London: Het eerste geval van het coronavirus in Londen bracht het totale aantal gevallen in het VK op negen. De vrouw werd op 12 februari gediagnosticeerd en naar het St. Thomas-ziekenhuis gebracht. Men denkt dat ze het weekend daarvoor vanuit China het VK is binnengevlogen, met ambtenaren die bevestigen dat ze daar het virus heeft opgelopen.

Totaal in Britse ziekenhuizen: negen patiënten. Zes Britten en drie Chinese onderdanen

Britse expats en vakantiegangers buiten het VK en waar ze worden verzorgd:

Majorca: Een Britse vader van twee die met Steve Walsh in het Franse skigebied verbleef, testte positief na zijn terugkeer naar zijn huis op Mallorca. Zijn vrouw en kinderen zijn niet ziek.

Frankrijk: Vijf mensen die in het chalet waren met de super-spreader. Deze omvatten de eigenaar van het chalet, milieuadviseur Bob Saynor, 48, en zijn negenjarige zoon. Ze zitten allemaal in een Frans ziekenhuis met drie niet nader genoemde anderen.

Japan: Een Britse man aan boord van een cruiseschip aangemeerd in een haven in Japan testte positief voor coronavirus, zei Princess Cruises. Alan Steele, uit Wolverhampton, postte op Facebook dat bij hem het virus was vastgesteld. Steele zei dat hij geen symptomen vertoonde, maar naar het ziekenhuis werd gebracht. Hij was op huwelijksreis. Twee Britten hebben sindsdien positief getest voor op een in quarantaine geplaatst cruiseschip.

Totaal: negen

Hubei Province is now recording cases based on a doctor’s diagnosis and before being confirmed by laboratory tests.

The acceleration of the number of cases does not necessarily mean a sudden increase in new infections of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Paul Hunter, een professor in gezondheidsbescherming aan de Universiteit van East Anglia, zei: ‘Ik vermoed, maar kan niet zeker zijn dat de onderliggende trend nog steeds neerwaarts is.

‘Het betekent vrijwel zeker niet dat de epidemie van de ene dag op de andere is opgekomen.’

Men denkt dat de sterke stijging is veroorzaakt door een verandering in de manier waarop artsen in Hubei – de provincie in het centrum van de uitbraak – het virus diagnosticeren.

Ambtenaren besloten dat mensen met virussymptomen, plus een CT-scan die een borstinfectie toont, nu als bevestigde gevallen worden geteld.

Voorheen werden gevallen alleen bevestigd met behulp van gespecialiseerde testkits in een laboratorium.

Maar de autoriteiten hebben moeten overschakelen naar de bredere diagnostische hulpmiddelen omdat de kits bijna op zijn en honderden patiënten niet getest worden.

Het roept het vooruitzicht op dat sterfgevallen en infecties veel hoger hadden kunnen zijn als artsen deze methode altijd al hadden gebruikt.

En het zou kunnen betekenen dat er in de Chinese provincie elke dag meer gevallen zullen worden gemeld.

Het officiële dodental ligt nu op 1.380 nadat China meldde dat 121 nieuwe patiënten ‘s nachts door het virus waren gedood.

Dit veroorzaakte verwarring omdat donderdag werd gemeld dat 1.370 mensen aan de ziekte bezweken.

Coronavirus heeft zes gezondheidswerkers in China vermoord en meer dan 1.700 geïnfecteerd sinds de uitbraak begon, zei Beijing vandaag.

Tekorten aan maskers en beschermingsmiddelen hebben een crisis veroorzaakt voor medisch personeel, aangezien zij te maken hebben met meer dan 60.000 gevallen van het dodelijke virus.

Zeng Yixin, vice-minister van de nationale gezondheidscommissie van China, zei vandaag dat 1.102 van de 1.716 besmette gezondheidswerkers het virus hebben opgelopen in de stad Wuhan.

Nog eens 400 werden elders in de provincie Hubei besmet, de regio in het midden van de uitbraak die ingrijpende quarantainemaatregelen kent.

Chinese autoriteiten hebben zich ingespannen om beschermende uitrusting in te zetten in de ziekenhuizen van Wuhan, waar artsen en verpleegkundigen overweldigd zijn door de uitbraak.

Veel artsen in Wuhan hebben patiënten moeten zien zonder de juiste maskers en moesten dezelfde apparatuur opnieuw gebruiken wanneer deze regelmatig moet worden vervangen.

Een arts in een gemeenschapskliniek in Wuhan zei dat hij en minstens 16 andere collega’s symptomen vertoonden die vergelijkbaar waren met het virus, waaronder longinfecties en hoesten.

De risico’s voor medisch personeel werden afgelopen vrijdag benadrukt toen Li Wenliang, een arts die berispt was omdat hij probeerde alarm te slaan over het virus, stierf aan de ziekte van Covid-19.

Zijn dood ontketende een uitbarsting van publieke woede op Chinese sociale media, waarbij academici in Wuhan een open brief schrijven die hervorming en vrijheid van meningsuiting eist.

WAT WE WETEN OVER DE DODELIJKE CORONAVIRUS IN CHINA?

Someone infected with the corona virus can spread it with just a simple cough or sneeze, scientists say.

More than 1,380 people with the virus have now been confirmed to have died and more than 64,400 have been infected in at least 28 countries and regions. But experts predict that the actual number of people with the Wuhan disease alone can be 350,000 because they warn that in 100 cases it can kill as many as two. This is what we know so far:

What is the corona virus?

A corona virus is a type of virus that can cause disease in animals and humans. Viruses break into cells in their host and use them to reproduce themselves and disrupt the normal functions of the body. Coronaviruses are named after the Latin word “corona”, which means crown, because they are enveloped by a pointed shell that looks like a royal crown.

The corona virus from Wuhan is one that has never been seen before this outbreak. It has been called SARS-CoV-2 by the International Commission on Taxonomy for Viruses. The name stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2.

Experts say the bug, which has killed about one in 50 patients since the outbreak in December, is a “sister” to the SARS disease that hit China in 2002, and is therefore named after it.

The disease that causes the virus is called COVID-19, which stands for coronavirus disease 2019.

Dr. Helena Maier of the Pirbright Institute said: “Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that infect a wide range of different types, including humans, cattle, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats, and wildlife.

“Until this new coronavirus was identified, there were only six different coronaviruses that are known to infect humans. Four of these cause a mild, common cold, but two new coronaviruses have emerged since 2002 that can infect people and lead to more serious illnesses (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) Coronaviruses) .

“Coronaviruses are known to occasionally jump from one species to another and that has happened in the case of SARS, MERS and the new coronavirus. The animal origin of the new coronavirus is not yet known. ”

The first human cases were publicly reported from the Chinese city of Wuhan, where around 11 million people live, after physicians first publicly reported infections on December 31.

On January 8, 59 suspected cases were reported and seven people were in critical condition. Tests were developed for the new virus and registered cases began to rise.

The first person died that week and on January 16, two were dead and 41 cases were confirmed. The next day, scientists predicted that 1,700 people were infected, possibly up to 7,000.

Only a week later there had been more than 800 confirmed cases and those same scientists estimate that around 4,000 – possibly 9,700 – had been infected in Wuhan alone. At that time, 26 people had died.

On January 27, more than 2,800 people were infected, 81 had died, and estimates of the total number of cases ranged from 100,000 to 350,000 in Wuhan alone.

On January 29, the number of deaths had risen to 132 and the number was more than 6,000.

On February 5, there were more than 24,000 cases and 492 deaths.

On 11 February this had risen to more than 43,000 cases and 1,000 deaths.

A change in the way in which cases are confirmed on February 13 – doctors decided to use lung scans as a formal diagnosis, as well as laboratory tests – caused a peak in the number of cases, to more than 60,000 and to 1,369 deaths.

Where does the virus come from?

Scientists say the virus almost certainly comes from bats. Coronaviruses generally tend to come from animals – the similar SARS and MERS viruses are thought to have originated in civet cats and camels, respectively.

The first cases of COVID-19 came from people who visited or worked in a market for live animals in the city, which has since been closed for investigation.

Although the market is officially a fish market, other dead and live animals were sold there, including wolves, salamanders, snakes, peacocks, porcupines and camel meat.

A study by the Wuhan Institute of Virology, published in February 2020 in the scientific journal Nature, showed that the genetic makeup virus samples found in patients in China are 96 percent comparable to a corona virus found in bats.

However, there were not many bats on the market, so scientists say it was likely that there was an animal that acted as a middle man, pulling it out of a bat before handing it over to a human. It has not yet been confirmed what type of animal this was.

Dr. Michael Skinner, a virologist at Imperial College London, was not involved in the research, but said: “The discovery definitely explains the origins of nCoV in bats in China.

“We still don’t know if another species served as an intermediate host to strengthen the virus, and possibly even to bring it to market, nor what species that host could have been.”

Until now, the deaths are fairly low. Why do health experts worry so much about it?

Experts say that the international community is worried about the virus because so little is known about it and it seems to be spreading fast.

It is similar to SARS, which has infected 8,000 people and killed nearly 800 in an outbreak in Asia in 2003, in the sense that it is a type of corona virus that infects people’s lungs.

Another cause for concern is that nobody has immunity to the virus because they have never encountered it before. This means that it may cause more damage than viruses we often encounter, such as the flu or a cold.

Professor Peter Horby, professor at Oxford University, spoke during a briefing in January: “New viruses can spread through the population much faster than viruses circulating all the time because we are not immune to them.

“Most seasonal flu viruses have a death rate of less than one in 1,000 people. Here we are talking about a virus for which we do not fully understand the severity spectrum, but it is possible that the mortality rate can go up to two percent. “

If the death rate is really two percent, it means that two out of every 100 patients who get it will die.

“My feeling is that it’s lower,” Dr. added. Horby. “We probably miss this iceberg of milder things. But that is the current condition in which we find ourselves.

“Two percent of the fatal cases are comparable to the Spanish flu pandemic in 1918, so it is a major concern worldwide.”

How does the virus spread?

The disease can spread between people, only through coughing and sneezing, making it a highly contagious infection. And it can also spread before someone has symptoms.

It is believed that it travels in the saliva and even through water in the eyes, therefore close contact, kissing and parts of cutlery or utensils are all risky.

It was originally thought that people would catch a market for live animals in the city of Wuhan. But soon cases occurred to people who had never been there, so doctors had to realize that it spread from person to person.

There is now evidence that it can spread the third hand – to someone from a person who has caught it from another person.

What does the virus do to you? What are the symptoms?

Once someone has caught the COVID-19 virus, it can take two to 14 days, or even longer, before he or she shows symptoms, but they can still be contagious during this time.

When and when they get sick, typical symptoms are runny nose, cough, sore throat and fever (high temperature). The vast majority of patients – at least 97 percent based on available data – will recover without problems or medical assistance.

In a small group of patients, who appear to be mostly elderly or people with long-term illnesses, this can lead to pneumonia. Pneumonia is an infection in which the inside of the lungs swells and fills with fluid. It makes it increasingly difficult to breathe and, if not treated, can be fatal and suffocate.

What have genetic tests revealed about the virus?

Scientists in China have registered the genetic sequences of about 19 strains of the virus and released them to experts around the world.

This allows others to study them, develop tests and possibly look into the treatment of the disease they cause.

Research has shown that the coronavirus did not change much – change is known as mutating – much during the early stages of its spread.

The Director General of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Gao Fu, said, however, that the virus mutated and adapted as it spread through people.

This means that efforts to study and possibly control the virus can be made extra difficult because the virus can look different every time scientists analyze it.

More research can show whether the virus has first infected a small number of people and then changes and spreads, or whether there are different versions of the virus from animals that have developed separately.

How dangerous is the virus?

The virus has so far killed 1,383 people out of a total of at least 64,441 officially confirmed cases – a death rate of around two percent. This is a similar death rate to the Spanish flu outbreak that killed around 50 million people in 1918.

However, experts say that the actual number of patients is probably considerably higher and therefore the mortality rate is considerably lower. Researchers at Imperial College London estimate that there were 4,000 cases in Wuhan alone until 18 January (up to 9,700) – officially there were only 444 until that date. If cases actually occur 100 times more often than the official figures, the virus can do a lot. less dangerous than is now thought, but also much more dispersed.

Experts say it is likely that only the most seriously ill patients seek help and are therefore registered – the vast majority will only have mild, cold-like symptoms. For those whose conditions get worse, there is a risk of pneumonia that can destroy the lungs and kill you.

Can the virus be cured?

The COVID-19 virus cannot currently be cured and it is difficult to contain.

Antibiotics do not work against viruses, so they are excluded. Antiviral drugs can work, but the process of understanding a virus and then developing and producing drugs to treat it would take years and huge amounts of money.

There is no vaccine for the coronavirus yet and it is unlikely that a vaccine will be developed in time that could be useful in this outbreak for similar reasons as above.

The National Institutes of Health in the US and Baylor University in Waco, Texas, say they are working on a vaccine based on what they know about coronaviruses in general, using information from the SARS outbreak. But this can take a year or more to develop, according to Pharmaceutical technology.

Currently, governments and health authorities are working to control the virus and care for patients who are sick and prevent them from infecting other people.

People who contract the disease are quarantined in hospitals, where their symptoms can be treated and they are away from the uninfected public.

And airports around the world are implementing screening measures, such as having doctors on site, measuring people’s temperature to monitor fever, and using thermal screening to detect those who may be sick (infection causes an elevated temperature).

However, it can take weeks for the symptoms to appear, so there is only a small chance that patients will be noticed at an airport.

Is this outbreak an epidemic or a pandemic?

The outbreak is an epidemic when a disease occurs in a community, such as a country or region.

Although it has spread to dozens of countries, the outbreak has not yet been classified as a pandemic, which is defined by the World Health Organization as the “global spread of a new disease.”

Dr. Sylvie Briand, head of global contagious preparation for contagious dangers, said: “We are not currently in a pandemic. We are in the phase where it is an epidemic with multiple foci, and we are trying to put an end to the transfer in each of these foci, “the Guardian reported.

She said that most of the cases outside of Hubei were “flooded” from the epicenter, so the disease did not spread actively around the world.
