Coronavirus, China accuses US of spreading panic and fear

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The Chinese government accuses the US of causing “panic” in response to the deadly coronavirus outbreak.

It is about the US decision to declare a state of emergency and prohibit the entry of foreigners who have visited China in the last two weeks.

So far, more than 17,000 cases of the virus have been confirmed in China and 361 are reported dead. Outside China, meanwhile, there are 150 confirmed cases of the virus and only one dead in the Philippines.

The virus that causes acute respiratory infection seems to start with a cold. The blast occurred on Monday, Chinese New Year’s Day.

On January 30, the World Health Organization declared a global emergency for the new coronavirus.

Just days earlier, the US ordered the removal of all US personnel and citizens from the province of Wuhan.

All those returning from China will be held for 14 days in quarantine where they will undergo medical tests to identify cases of coronavirus infections as well as to prevent its spread.
