The National Health Commission of China reported today that, until last local midnight (16.00 GMT on Monday), 11,741 serious cases had been recorded, while 12,552 people had successfully overcome the disease and had been discharged.

The source added that 560,901 patients have been followed up in close contact with those infected, of which 141,552 are still under observation.

The situation in China for the coronavirus

Official figures published today increase 98 deaths compared to the previous day, 93 of which were certified in Hubei Province, of which Wuhan is the capital and epicenter of the outbreak, and has remained in quarantine since last January 23.

The remaining five deaths were distributed among the provinces of Henan (3), Hebei (1) and Hunan (1), all of them in the eastern half of the country.

The list of new infected added 1,886 patients, of which 1,807 were registered in the province of Hubei.

Also, in its part today, the Commission added 1,701 names to the list of patients had healed.

To date, all but five deaths – in Taiwan, Japan, France, the Philippines and Hong Kong – have occurred in mainland China and, although some thirty countries have cases diagnosed with COVID-19, China monopolizes around 99% of those infected.

The symptoms of the new disease 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 18, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
