Spike in Coronavirus Due to Reclassification of Suspected Cases

14 Février, 2020, 01:26 | Auteur: Yves Courtet
  • Coronavirus death toll rises to 1,350 in China

The moves came within hours of each other Thursday.

The provincial health commission said last week that it would begin recognizing computerized tomography (CT) scan results as confirmation of infections, allowing hospitals to isolate patients more quickly. That raised the global tally to nearly 60,000, dashing hopes that the epidemic might be easing.

CCP's Hubei Secretary Jiang Chaoliang (蔣超良) and Wuhan chief Ma Guoqiang (馬國強) were both stripped of their titles and will be replaced by Shanghai Mayor Ying Yong (應勇) and former Jinan Secretary Wang Zhonglin (王忠林), respectively.

One map shows where the outbreak has spread around the world.

Outside Hubei in China, the classification of suspected cases and confirmed cased remains unchanged.

Of the new cases, 13,332 were "clinically diagnosed" based on symptoms rather than tests that have proved somewhat unreliable. "If that were not the case, the government could not have added so many new cases in one day".

A second person evacuated from Wuhan to a USA military base near San Diego has been diagnosed with the new coronavirus, raising the tally of confirmed cases in the United States to 14, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Wednesday.

Dr. Michael Ryan, the World Health Organization's emergencies chief, said the dramatic increase was due to a revised way of counting cases and cautioned it did not represent a sudden surge in new infections.

"At this time there is no indication of person-to-person spread of this virus at the quarantine facility, but CDC will carry out a thorough contact investigation as part of its current response strategy to detect and contain any cases of infection with this virus", Dr Christopher Braden, deputy director of the CDC's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, said in a statement. It also requires a quarantine of U.S. citizens who have recently visited Hubei province in China. Indications that news of Li's death from the disease was also censored by Chinese authorities prompted further outrage on social media.

China also appointed new high-level officials in Hubei and Wuhan.

Before his experience in Shanghai, Ying served as the president of the provincial high court in eastern China's Zhejiang Province.

About 60,000 people have now been confirmed to have the virus, the vast majority in China.

Local officials often bear the brunt when crises threaten the ruling party.

But the government has faced continued scepticism among the global public, with fears that there may be similarities to the way it dealt with SARS.

"The real question is whether or not the trend, using the same criteria, is up or down", said Dr. Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University in NY. "This is a demonstration of resolve - and the fact that they're willing to take heed of public opinion".

The virus has killed more than 1,100 people and infected 44,600 since it was first reported on December 31.

The issue has cropped up outside China, as well.

Gilead said earlier it was working with US and Chinese authorities to test remdesivir as a treatment for the virus. Cases are counted as confirmed only if nucleic-acid testing of nasal or throat swabs comes back positive for the pathogen. Hubei didn't include that category in its count until Thursday, a week later.

"I guess if the situation in Hubei is a long way from being under control, the party should be anxious about instability, because you are literally going to have tens of millions of people confined indoors at least for another month", he said. Commission spokesman Mi Feng said the situation is still grim but "we have seen some positive changes".
