Wuhan coronavirus leaves China and comes to Australia, Canada, the United States and France, among other countries

Sydney (Australia) / Wuhan coronavirus, which has caused 80 deaths, has left China and, for now, there are 45 infected people, some of them have been discharged, in a dozen countries, including Australia, Canada, the United States and France.

Outside of China, eight (8) cases have been registered in Thailand (of which five have already been discharged), five (5) in the United States, five (5) in Australia; four (4) in each of the following countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, France and Japan (one cured); three (3) in South Korea, two (2) in Vietnam, one (1) in Nepal and one in Canada (1).

While in China the infected people amount to 2,744, Australia confirmed on Monday a new case of “Wuhan coronavirus“, which brings to five the number of infected people in the oceanic country.

The new case is a 21-year-old university student, who has not been identified. The student had recently travelled to Sydney on a direct flight from the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, health authorities in New South Wales reported.

The Australian authorities reported on Sunday the first four cases of people infected with the coronavirus, of which at least three were men who were in Wuhan, capital of the province of Hubei.

The Australian Government is studying a plan to repatriate about 100 Australian schoolchildren trapped in the Chinese city, which is virtually isolated after the cut of communications ordered by Beijing to contain the disease.

On the other hand, China has decided to postpone the 14th National Winter Games due to the risk of contagion of the new coronavirus causing Wuhan pneumonia. The Games were scheduled between February 16 and 26 and, for the first time, were to be held in the northern province of Inner Mongolia, local press reported.

Besides, the Hong Kong government decided last weekend to cancel the Hong Kong Marathon, which was scheduled for next day 9, in which some 70,000 runners were registered, the South China Morning Post said. (January 27, 2020, EFE/Practica Español)
