The official count of victims of the coronavirus in China until February 19: 2004 dead, 74,185 infections and 135,881 patients under observation

Beijing /   The National Health Commission of China today placed in 2004 the death toll and 74,185 the number of COVID-19 pneumonia infections diagnosed in their country.

Chinese health authorities reported today that, until last local midnight (16.00 GMT on Tuesday), 11,977 serious cases had been recorded, while 14,376 people had healed.

Also, in its daily part, the source added that to date, 574,418 patients have been followed in close contact with the infected, of which 135,881 are still under observation.

Of the latter, 5,248 are suspected cases of contracting the new coronavirus, baptized as SARS-CoV-2 by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The situation in China for the coronavirus

The official figures published today represent an increase of 136 deaths compared to the previous day, 132 of which were certified in the province of Hubei, of which Wuhan is the capital and epicenter of the outbreak, and has remained in quarantine since last January 23 .

The remaining four deaths were distributed among the provinces of Heilonjiang (in the northeast of the country), Shandong (in the east), Canton (southeast) and Guizhou, in the center-south.

The list of new infected added 1,749 patients, of which 1,693 were registered in the province of Hubei.

In addition, the Commission added 1,824 names to the list of patients who had overcome the disease and had been discharged.

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 19, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
