Coronavirus cases in China epicenter fall, cruise ship disembarks in Cambodia

Amid the ongoing epidemic, Chinese authorities have reportedly relieved Hubei party secretary Jiang Chaoliang of his duties and appointed incumbent Shanghai mayor Ying Yong as the new secretary of the Communist Party of China, local media said Thursday.

Another 2,450 new suspected cases were reported Thursday, said the Commission. The death toll rises by 121 to 1,380.

Almost 90% of the new cases reported Thursday were "clinically diagnosed" patients, meaning they were confirmed under the new rules. The daily death toll nearly halved when compared to Wednesday's 14,840.

Though the number of infections on Thursday was about 1,800, the lowest daily new infection record, the number of new deaths increased to a staggering 254, which is twice the number of the average daily death toll since January.

"We've seen this spike in the number of cases reported in China, but this does not represent a significant change in the trajectory of the outbreak", said Ryan.

That adds a "clinical diagnosis case" classification to identify suspected cases who appear to have pneumonia so that patients can be accepted as soon as possible and treated as confirmed cases, Mi said, adding that should "reduce severe illness and mortality".

There are 36,719 patients who have been hospitalized in Hubei, including 1,685 who are in critical condition, according to the health authority.

The inclusion of CT scan-diagnosed patients on Thursday triggered a 45% surge in the number of cases in Hubei, raising doubts that the epidemic that emerged from Wuhan, the provincial capital, in December is coming under control. Across mainland China, there were 15,152 new confirmed infections on Wednesday, bringing the total number to 59,805. All the other employees worked on the same floor as the patient.

Later in the day, WHO's Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, PhD, said on Twitter that 20 passengers tested negative for the virus, and he thanked Cambodia's health ministry and government for their act of global solidarity.

Among the deaths on Thursday, 116 were in Hubei province, two in Heilongjiang, and one each in Anhui, Henan and Chongqing.

Thailand refused to allow the Westerdam to dock this week after it had already been turned away by the Philippines, Taiwan, Japan and Guam over virus concerns.

Another cruise ship that has been significantly affected at sea by the deadly outbreak is the Diamond Princess that is now under quarantine.

It is the first person under quarantine at the airbase among a group of people that arrived from China on February 7 who had symptoms and tested positive for the disease, the CDC said.

"The patient is among a group of people under a federal quarantine order at JBSA-Lackland in Texas due to their recent return to the US on a State Department-chartered flight that arrived on February 7, 2020", the CDC said.
