The official count of victims of the coronavirus in China until February 10: 908 dead, 40,171 infections and 187,518 patients under observation

Beijing / The National Health Commission of China raised the death toll from the coronavirus causing Wuhan pneumonia to 908 among the 40,171 infected diagnosed in the Asian country.

According to the source, until last local midnight (16.00 GMT on Sunday), 6,484 serious cases had been recorded, while noting that 3,281 people had been discharged after overcoming the disease.

The situation in China for the coronavirus

At the moment, the Commission said that it has followed 399,487 patients in close contact with the infected, of which 187,518 are still under observation.

Of these, 23,589 are suspected cases of contracting the virus. Today’s data represent an increase of 97 deaths compared to yesterday, in addition to adding another 3,062 infected to the list.

However, it also added 632 names to the payroll of patients discharged. Of the 97 deaths, 91 were certified in the province of Hubei, of which Wuhan is the capital and epicenter of the outbreak, and has remained in quarantine ‘de facto’ since January 23.

The remaining six cases were distributed in the provinces of Anhui (east, two deaths), Jiangxi (east), Heilongjiang (northeast), Hainan (south) and Gansú (center-north). Also, Hubei concentrates 2,618 of the 3,062 new positive coronavirus.

To date, all but two deaths – those cited from the Philippines and Hong Kong – have occurred in mainland China and, although about twenty countries have cases diagnosed with pneumonia in Wuhan, China accounts for about 99% of infected.

The symptoms of the new coronavirus, called 2019-nCoV, are in many cases similar to those of a cold, but may be accompanied by fever and fatigue, dry cough and dyspnea (shortness of breath). (February 10, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
