Who is most likely to catch China's coronavirus?

Coronavirus Outbreak May Have Originated in Snakes, New Research Finds 20 Million on Lockdown As China Halts Travel From Three Cities Over Deadly Virus

"Here at the University of Edinburgh we have more than 2,000 students from China and they are always coming and going back to China so we are relatively sure we will have cases in the United Kingdom from travellers coming back from China".

After reading about the virus online he went to his doctor on Sunday and tested positive for coronavirus, Washington health officials said Tuesday in a media call.

Tedros said the world should be ready for additional cases and an evolution in the outbreak and that he could reconvene the emergency committee as circumstances changed.

Speaking earlier in the day, the head of Quebec's public health authority said five people in that province were under surveillance for possible exposure.

World Health Organization defines a global emergency as an "extraordinary event" that constitutes a risk to other countries and requires a co-ordinated worldwide response. Here are some examples.

China's National Health Commission reported on Thursday that they're starting to see cases of people infected with the virus who have never travelled to Wuhan, according to Chinese state media outlet CGTN, further confirming the theory that this virus is able to be transmitted from person-to-person.

An estimated 400 million people are now expected to travel across China in the next few weeks to mark the Chinese New Year of the Rat.

Huawei's announcement follows what's been referred to as an "unprecedented" quarantine by Chinese authorities of the major city of Wuhan and surrounding cities, affecting close to 25 million people.

In fact, she also provided video and photo footage of Prince Charles and Pence interacting on Thursday. VP and Prince Charles spoke prior to entering the event floor and after his remarks as well'.

Experts have questioned whether such a move will actually help with the public health response.

None of the cases have been confirmed as the virus so far. Some Lunar New Year celebrations are cancelled.

The previously unknown virus strain is believed to have emerged late a year ago from illegally traded wildlife at an animal market in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.

Residents in Wuhan have been banned from leaving the city. "It's a bit like a sledgehammer". On Thursday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said people should avoid nonessential travel to Wuhan. "Anything that limits people's travels during an outbreak would obviously work". While she said masks are useful for those who already have a disease, they can make healthy people sick in other ways.

"It can increase the level of panic, and just cause people to flee by other means", he said.

The Scottish government said in a statement: "There are now no confirmed cases of coronavirus (WN Co-V) in Scotland and the risk to the Scottish public remains low". Like SARS, it can be passed among people through the respiratory tract.

Sir Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust research charity and an expert on disease in Asia, told BBC Scotland the outbreak in China was "very, very concerning". The Philippines suspended a daily charter flight from Wuhan to a beach resort popular with Chinese tourists.

Researchers say the virus spreading through China is in the same family as SARS and closest to one found in bats. The PHEIC designation (pronounced "fake") was created following an update to the International Health Regulations after that outbreak. The last respiratory illness to trigger a public health emergency was the flu pandemic of 2009, which caused widespread alarm but ended up being relatively mild.
