Coronavirus warning as eight cities in China locked down
China’s National Health Commission says the number of cases of a new respiratory virus has risen to 830 with 25 deaths.
The update Friday morning also confirmed the first death outside the central province of Hubei.
Chinese authorities have moved to lock down multiple cities, home to more than 23 million people, in an unprecedented effort to contain the deadly avirus.
The respiratory virus has claimed two dozen lives since emerging from a seafood and animal market in the central city of Wuhan, infected at more than 800 people nationwide and been detected as far away as the United States.
The deadly virus claimed its first victim outside the epicentre of the outbreak, with authorities reporting a death in Hebei province, near Beijing.
Yi Guan, a prominent virologist, warned the virus showed signs of being far worse than severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) after travelling to Wuhan.
“Conservative estimates suggest that the scale of infection may eventually be 10 times higher than SARS,” he said.
In 2002-03 SARS infected more than 8000 people, killing 774.
