Coronavirus death toll tops 130; countries scramble to minimize damage


We begin this morning with our ongoing coverage
of the coronavirus outbreak. The virus is spreading quickly and the world
is on edge. Our Kim Jae-hee is on the line with the latest. Jae-hee, please fill us in. Right. So the new type of coronavirus that first
appeared in Wuhan late last month continues to claim more victims. As of Wednesday morning,… at least 132 people
have died in China,… and 105 of them are from Wuhan. The number of confirmed cases in China has
soared to near 6-thousand,… with more than half of them in Wuhan. Shanghai and the Chinese capital Beijing have
reported deaths from the virus as well. Beijing confirmed on Monday a 50-year old
man died of respiratory failure,… and Shanghai said on Sunday an 88-year-old man died. Experts in China say the outbreak is forecast
to worsen. The head of a team of experts at China’s National
Health Commission said on Tuesday,… that the coronavirus will reach its peak infection
rate in 7 to 10 days. However, he added, there will be no large
scale growth after that. The virus is also continuing to spread to
other parts of the world. What do we know so far about its impact, and
what are other countries doing to minimize the damage? Yes, the virus is popping up across the world,…
with more confirmed cases being reported everyday. At least 17 countries and territorial entities
outside mainland China have now reported confirmed cases. Luckily, no deaths from the coronavirus have
been reported other than in China so far. France on Tuesday confirmed its 4th case in
an elderly Chinese tourist. France’s Health Ministry said the patient,
who is hospitalized in Paris, is believed to be about 80 years old and is gravely ill. Japan and Germany have both confirmed cases
from patients who have never been to Wuhan. Japan has at least 7 confirmed cases,… and
the first confirmed patient a male bus driver in his 60s has not been to Wuhan, but drove
two groups of Chinese tourists from Wuhan earlier this month. Germany has now at least 4 confirmed patients,…
and the country’s first confirmed patient a 33-year old German male did not visit China,
but was in a meeting with a female Chinese national,… who later turned out to be infected. Thailand has at least 14 diagnosed with the
disease. Having the most confirmed patients outside
of China,… Thailand has announced plans to screen all arrivals from China for symptoms
of the coronavirus. Hong Kong has at least 8 confirmed cases. Hong Kong on Tuesday announced plans to slash
cross-border travel between the city and mainland China. The virus has also spread to North America,… Canada confirmed its third case from a man
in his 40s who visited Wuhan. In the U.S., at least 5 people are diagnosed
with the disease, all of whom recently traveled from Wuhan. The White House officials said it’s considering
suspending China flights,.. and United Airlines announced it is canceling dozens of China
flights next month because of a decrease in demand for flights to China. The U.S. also said it will expand screening
of travelers arriving from Wuhan to 20 airports and land crossings,… and is advising people
to avoid non-essential travel to any part of China. The European Commission said on Tuesday it
would start helping repatriate Europeans from Wuhan on France’s request. The South Korean, Japanese, American, French,
and German governments are also sending chartered planes to repatriate their citizens stuck
in Wuhan. That’s all I have for this hour, but I’ll
be back with more updates in our later newscast. Back to you.

  7. Its time to get the message China and turn away from these years of worshipping animals and idols and turn to the Lord Jesus with all your hearts and serve Him. Stop rejecting your Creator.

  8. Thailand let in thousands from Wuhan with virus, wait for the increase in plague there.

  9. Are you walking the narrowway or the broadway to hellfire? Today, like right now is the perfect time to cry out for Jesus to save you. Admit you are a sinner in need of redemption. We don't know what Tommrrow will bring. Don't take a chance on your eternal destiny.

  12. This virus is designed to knock out the old and weak from the system thus saving money. Ex smokers, smokers and previous respiratory illnesses are the targeted group . This is pneumonia literally on steroids.

  13. Tell the truth about the real data. We have watched from Facebook live videos the reality broadcast.

  14. The elderlies and people with chronic diseases are more likely to get severely ill or die from this infection.

  15. Chill, it kills you with pneumonia and ARDS, and both are treatable, it very unlikely for you to die

  16. I feel north Korea and the eastern country like Afghanistan Iraq will b just find as no one can’t or want to travel there

  17. That's a lie… I don't see how they expect this to "Peak" in such a short amount of time. It's not possible. That would mean they have contained/controlled the spread in that amount of time. Yeah right

  18. So as long as there is no antidote with exponential expansion of the virus 🦠 we’re all fucked, party time, big time, have fun right up to your last cough. RIP.

  19. The flu epidemic in 1918 killed more than 25 million people around the world.

  20. They should've evacuate the Canadians, Americans, other foreigners into an island and let them stay for 2 weeks before sending them right back home instead.

  25. This coronavirus shitt is spread by U.S and they have cure but not giving to china 🤔😡🤬

  26. Stop eating cute sea animals.
    Humans do well without meat.
    And most importantly, remember and meditate on gods name, because life is a chance for the soul to meet the almighty prime soul.

  27. Flight to Neptune is still waiting for more passengers please book before the offer is over😅😅😅😅

  28. If they new you could have the virus and show know signs for up to two weeks ,? Why would you then be letting people leave to go to so many countries,? Sounds like depopulation to me

  29. So what if you have the best means of dealing with new case emerging in your country. … shouldn't be allowing planes to have come in after the fact ?

  32. The corrupt socialist finnish government deny all. that coronavirus is not existing. thats when having green socialists in government. chinese bringing nice money to finland…

  33. AVOID STARBUCKS PLEASE😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷

  34. That many from one locale infected, then why arent they testing Water samples????

    Just to be safe, they should be testing soil, water air and even something that all households use.

    It just seems to be a Lot of people all at once. Yeah flu viruses spread but to That many in one area? Unless the entire city ate meat from that market which I highly doubt, then Id be looking at other means the virus could spread to that many in short time. Just saying…

  35. 1:50 look at the white colored country surrounded by reds in Asia

  36. So it taking out old, very young and sick people, which leaves military aged people capable of fighting a war!

  37. There are cases of Coronavirus in South Korea… But why don't they reported? 🤔

  38. This people are so sick 🤒 they don’t need to be in USA 🇺🇸 because they are so sick 🤒

  39. A planned conspiracy. It appears that there is no blame on the creators of this Biological weapon…

  40. Ceep calm. China is doing the best in the short time so far. Anyway how many people died because of the flu (influenza) in 2020 although there are vaccinations and how many are infected? Much more !!!
    The 4 people that are infected in Germany, yet, are all from the same company and it has to do with the woman from China (of the same company), visiting a seminar last week. Before she flew to Germany, she had visitors from Wuhan. The problem was, the lady felt sick, when going back to China, but not before: You can have no symptoms at all and you have the virus !!! Let's hope there will be not more infected people. We are still waiting for the results of the screening. The 4 patients in hospital don't suffer, maybe because they were strong before getting the virus.

    The virus doesn't seem to be very much aggressive. If you are healthy before getting it, you will not pass away.

    Wash your hands regulary, don't touch doorhandles without something else, sneeze in the elbow, avoid talking face to face to sick persons (not less than 2 metres? ) and so on. Masks will not help – Maybe a little bit , if you have the virus yourself. That is the reason, why so many nations/ people don't wear masks.

    Let's say thank you very much to the companies that care and allow their clerks to work from home or to stay at home, if there is a risk a virus could be spread. Thank you to the hospitals and health care taker, to the families, to all people with relaxed awareness.

    Greetings from Germany.

  41. There are just few cases confirmed positive to Cov in VietNam ,but at least two cases of Wuhan citizens has recovered .There still are last 280 Wuhan tourists has quarantined in DaNang ,VN passed one week already .CBC news ,The Moon.

  42. So scary!!! I pray for the best! 🙏🏻🛐 She sound's like a robot on edge!

  43. I'm trying to picture this happening in the Democrat hostage state of California.

  44. Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “If you hear that it (the plague) is in a land, do not go there, and if it breaks out in a land where you are, do not leave, fleeing from it.

  45. Come to the US. Last year CDC reported 57,000 deaths from the Common Flu.

    That averages out to 4750 deaths per month…let the number sink in.

    BC that was a good year. The year before the deathtoll was 79,400.

    That's 6616 (rounded down) per month.

  46. Pop those bubbles as they appear kids…use the points to mutate your virus !! 🤔😊 (meanwhile bill and melinda laugh all the way to the bank again !!)

  47. i have watch korean movie call The Flu it is really the same this Coronavirus
