The official count of victims of the coronavirus in China until February 20: 2,118 dead, 74,576 infections and 126,363 patients under observation

Beijing / China today raised to 2,118 the death toll and 74,576 the number of COVID-19 pneumonia infections, caused by the coronarivus SARS-CoV-2, diagnosed in his country.

The National Health Commission said today that, until last local midnight (16.00 GMT on Wednesday), 11,864 serious cases had been recorded, while 16,155 people had been discharged.

Also, in their daily report, the Chinese health authorities added that to date, 589,163 patients have been followed in close contact with the infected, of which 126,363 are still under observation.

Of these, 4,922 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 114 deaths compared to the previous day, 108 of which were certified in the province of Hubei, of which Wuhan is the capital and epicenter of the outbreak, and remains in quarantine since last January 23.

The other six deaths were distributed between the provinces of Hebei, Shanghai, Fujian, Shandong, Shaanxi (all of them in the eastern half of the country) and Yunnan in the south.

The list of new infected fell dramatically compared to the previous day (1,749) and added 394 patients, of which 349 were registered in the province of Hubei, the lowest number of new positives since January 25.

In addition, the Commission added 1,779 names to the list of patients who had overcome the disease.

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 20, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
