Coronavirus death jumps to 170 in China, 7,711 infected, situation become more dangerous

The death toll rose to 170 in the new virus outbreak in China on Thursday as foreign evacuees from the worst-hit region begin returning home under close observation and world health officials expressed “great concern” that the disease is starting to spread between people outside of China.

The death toll jump to 170 in China due to new Coronavirus outbreak on Thursday. While totle cases increase of 7,711. The news comes as the 195 Americans evacuated from Wuhan, the Hubei province city of 11 million where the outbreak originated, are undergoing three days of testing and monitoring at a Southern California military base to make sure they do not show signs of the virus.

A group of 210 Japanese evacuees from Wuhan landed Thursday at Tokyo’s Haneda airport on a second government chartered flight, according to the foreign ministry. Reports said nine of those aboard the flight showed signs of cough and fever. Three of the 206 Japanese who returned on Wednesday tested positive for the new coronavirus, PM Shinzo Abe said during a parliamentary session.

France, New Zealand, Australia and other countries are also pulling out their citizens or making plans to do so.

World Health Organization (WHO) emergencies chief said the few cases of human-to-human spread of the virus outside China – in Japan, Germany, Canada and Vietnam – were of “great concern” and were part of the reason the U.N. health agency’s director-general was reconvening a committee of experts on Thursday to assess whether the outbreak should be declared a global emergency. The new virus has now infected more people in China than were sickened there during the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak.
