UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Epicenter of coronavirus outbreak reports 4,823 new cases and 116 new deaths.
There are currently 65,213 confirmed cases worldwide, including 1,486 fatalities.
The number of new deaths in China’s central Hubei province from a coronavirus outbreak rose by 116 as of Thursday, the province’s health commission said on its website on Friday.
A further 4,823 cases had been detected in Hubei, the epicenter of the outbreak, taking the total in the province to 51,986.
China’s Hubei province reported an additional 116 deaths and 4,823 new confirmed cases as of the end of Feb. 13. Of the new cases, the government said that 3,095 were “clinically diagnosed.”
That term refers to a new method for tabulating case totals which now count toward the “confirmed case” count. The change was made so a broader set of patients can receive the same treatment a confirmed case does, according to a CNBC translation of the official announcement’s Chinese text.
In total, Hubei authorities said that 51,986 people have been infected in the province.
