  • TT Ministry of Health hosts stakeholder meeting on COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)

The announcement came during the World Health Organization daily media briefing on the current COVID-19 epidemic. Two deaths have been reported outside of China, one in Philippines and one in Hong Kong.

The cruise ship Diamond Princess, where dozens of passengers were tested positive for coronavirus, is seen through steel fence at Daikoku Pier Cruise Terminal in Yokohama, south of Tokyo, Japan.

It is known that the number of people who died of this serious virus in China has crossed 1100 on Wednesday.

The head of World Health Organization renewed a call for global solidarity, praising the Cambodian Government's decision to allow the Westerdam cruise ship, which had been stranded for several days, to dock in the country, as an appropriate response to the outbreak.

One patient in Macao and one in Taiwan have been discharged from hospital after recovery.

"At the moment, we're just not seeing COVID activity amongst those samples, and that would give an indication that the iceberg may not be that great - [but] it's not a guarantee". "They are going to take time to develop - however within the meantime, we're not defenseless", he mentioned.

February is most risky: According to information received, it has been learned that China's chief medical adviser Jong Nanshan told news agency Reuters about the coronavirus that the number of people affected by the epidemic is decreasing.

In scientific and medical literature, COVID-19 has been referred to as 2019nCoV, certainly not a catchy name. And we're keeping the public informed about what everyone can do to protect their own health and that of others.

World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made the announcement speaking to journalists in Geneva. Hence, those who had manifested the symptoms of the disease and were diagnosed by doctors through their symptoms were added to the toll.

Thailand, meanwhile, became the latest country to deny entry to a luxury cruise ship operated by the Holland America Line, even though no cases have been confirmed on board. Often, said Mr. Tedros, without an evidence-based risk assessment.

He added that what everyone should do is prepare.

In an earlier tweet, he also thanked Germany's health authorities after Health Minister Jens Spahn called for more support from fellow European Union members to fight the epidemic.

Tedros said that "co" stands for "corona", "vi" for "virus" and "d" for "disease", while "19" was for the year, as the outbreak was first identified on December 31.

The ICAO chief pointed out that manufacturers, airlines and airports had been taking special precautions to minimize the risk to air travellers of being infected by the virus, and that while ICAO's core role is to help governments to connect the world, in times such as these "the health and safety of the travelling public must be of paramount priority".
