UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
The World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday sounded the alarm, announcing on Tuesday a new coronavirus has spread among a group of Chinese families, and warned of the possibility of it spreading more widely.
On Monday, authorities reported that they had quarantined a Chinese woman in Thailand for a mysterious strain, in the first detection of the virus outside China. 41 cases of pneumonia, a symptom of the disease, were reported in central China’s Wuhan city, most of which were linked to a seafood market.
Dr. Maria Van Kirkov, Acting Head of the Emerging Diseases Unit of the World Health Organization, said during a press briefing in Geneva that the organization gave instructions to hospitals all over the world regarding infection control in the event of the spread of the virus, including the possibility of “rapid spread” in a healthcare environment.
“We are looking for something, which is possible, and we need to prepare.”
