Improvvisi ulteriori 13.000 pazienti con febbre nella provincia di Hubei, apparentemente “scoperti” dopo una recensione a Huanggang (città) – xinhuanet.com
…che strano.. arrivano i primi ispettori OMS e subito sbucano fuori altri 13.000 con febbre?

🔴 L’OMS ha da poco stabilito il nome ufficiale del nuovo coronavirus: COVID-19

Complimenti all’ OMS per avere ottenuto un così prestigioso risultato, tanto lavoro paga! …ottimo lavoro OMS! ...adesso mi sento più tranquilla…

🔴 The World Health Organisation has given this coronavirus its own official name: “Covid-19”. It may sound like Commander Koenig’s favourite toilet block at Moonbase Alpha but the WHO says “co” stands for corona, “vi” for virus and “d” for disease. China (PS don’t know why 19)

🔴 WHO: Vaccine for new coronavirus “COVID-19” could be ready in 18 months. ...need moah beer!

🔴 Germany reports two new COVID-19 cases in Bavaria, total now 16.

🔴 At least 500 medical workers in Wuhan were infected by coronavirus mid-January – SCMP covid19

🔴 Hot pot meals apparently cause of newest case. Interesting map of HK case clusters of covid19 🦠

🔴 CDC official says N95 masks aren’t useful for most people and should be reserved for healthcare professionals.

🔴 Sembra che stia venendo alla luce una nuova fascia di casi non conteggiati. Dopo il non conteggio dei casi risultati positivi ma senza sintomi, sembra esserci una nuova discontinuità. Nel caso in cui ci siano pazienti con evidenti sintomi compatibili e con radiografie positive all’infezione, ma che non siano stati ufficialmente testati, questi non vengono conteggiati. …a questo punto muoversi tra i dati cinesi è come camminare sulle sabbie mobili…

🔴 REMINDER TO US TRAVELERS: Foreign nationals who have visited China in the past 14 days cannot enter US. American citizens, green cards, +families who have been in China in the past 14 days will be allowed to enter US, but maybe quarantined.

Unlock Coronavirus research for scientists – Sign the Petition!

Right now, thousands of scientific studies about the Coronavirus are locked behind subscription paywalls, blocking scientists from getting access to research needed to discover antiviral treatments and a vaccine to stop the virus.

Although publishers have made some research available via Open Access, thousands of articles remain locked behind paywalls.
Publishers must immediately unlock every scientific article containing the term “Coronavirus.” It is a moral imperative!

Publishing companies like Elsevier make billions in profit from subscriptions fees paid by scientists.

Scientists working in the developing world often cannot afford these costly subscriptions, which are needed to get past paywalls to access studies. The Liberian Minister of Health Dr. Bernice Dahn warned us that crucial Ebola research was inaccessible to scientists during the height of the 2014 Ebola epidemic.

A subscription fee stood between Ebola scientists and life-saving research.
A single research paper would cost a physician in Liberia $45 – half a week’s salary. A paper that might save countless lives.
Humanity cannot afford to make the same mistake twice. We cannot let greed get in the way of science and cost human lives.

Hundreds of people have died, tens of thousands are infected. Publishers must open their hearts and share everything known about Coronaviruses during this crisis with every researcher, rich or poor. This time, we cannot let paywalls stand between scientists and the scientific knowledge they need to fight the virus.

Unlock Coronavirus Science!

We demand scientific publishers Elsevier, John Wiley & Sons, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis, SAGE Publications, and Oxford University Press support our scientists and physicians during this humanitarian crisis.

Now is not the time for profit, now is the time for action!

Thank you for supporting our brave scientists during this globally urgent humanitarian crisis!

🔴 This is the latest update to the novel coronavirus outbreak:

🔴 Aggiornamento dell’11/2 su 2019-nCov:

1) 43.108 casi confermati, 1.018 decessi, 4.053 guarigioni, 187k sotto osservazione

2) Attenzione, ormai è praticamente ufficiale, anche il noto è affidabile sito FluTracker ne da notizia: la Cina ha cambiato il metodo dei conteggi dei nuovi casi. Non vengono calcolati i casi risultati positivi al test ma senza sintomi

3) 135 casi complessivamente sulla nave da crociera Princess Diamond

4) Paesi con più di 40 casi, esclusa la Cina: Singapore, Hong Kong

5) Paesi con più di 30 casi, esclusa la Cina: Thailandia

6) Paesi con più di 20 casi, esclusa la Cina: Corea del Sud, Giappone

7) Le nuove stime sulla mortalità dei casi sono: 18% a Whuan; 1.2 / 5.6% fuori dalla Cina. Includendo tutti i casi, anche gli asintomatici si giunge all’1%. L’influenza è pari allo 0.1%. (tutte le stime sono elaborate dall’Imperial College)

La Princess Diamond é diventato il laboratorio dove studiare le caratteristiche del virus…

🔴 UPDATE: China official coronavirus NoS continue to rise: dead 1017; definitely infected 42,708; additional cases prob infected 21,675; recovered 4000. Good news is that, outside Hubei Province, the infected rate has now dropped for 7 days. Inside Hubei, esp Wuhan, sounds terrible.

🔴 UPDATE: What all this means is that lots of people in China’s official “additional cases probably infected” category (currently 21,675) are almost certain to have the Coronavirus. If you add that number to the “officially infected” number that would be over 63,000 people infected.

🔴 Il partito comunica/ Due alti funzionari della provincia cinese dello Hubei, da dove si è diffusa l’epidemia di coronavirus, sono stati licenziati e sostituiti da un funzionario del governo centrale.

🔴 Intanto il Global Times… annuncia che una simpatica signora della provincia di Shanxi ha incubato il virus per ben 42 giorni! Fonte: Global Times/Twitter

🔴 BREAKING: US confirms 13th case of the Coronavirus in the United States, in California.

🔴 Trump dice che virus finirà ad aprile, quando inizia a far caldo.
Cuba elogia gli sforzi cinesi per contrastare l’emergenza. Va beh…
Pechino manovra per controllare notizie.
Nave da crociera Caribbean Princess ha un’emergenza: epidemia a bordo, ma non del virus cinese, bensì di gastroenterite. Costretta a tornare a FT Lauderdale, Florida.
Turchia dice di aver condotto massiccia rappresaglia contro 100 obiettivi siriani in risposta all’uccisione di suoi 5 soldati per mano degli assadiani. In rete girano foto di mezzi turchi distrutti (ma potrebbero riferirsi ad episodio del 3 febbraio). Ankara afferma che non cederà terreno a Idlib. – Guido Olimpio/Corriere

🔴 Shanghai Hongqiao station at 8am this morning. It’s normally thronged. Unbelievable how life in China remains mostly at a standstill. Many trains, not just those to Wuhan, were canceled.

🔴 Coronavirus: Primo caso di contagio in California, a San Diego.

🔴 Emergenza CORONAVIRUS: Preoccupazione a Melfi dopo morte cinese che si era recato al Pronto Soccorso per un malore. Era rientrato in Italia da un viaggio nella sua città natale in Cina a dicembre. Scattati i controlli protocollo.

🔴 China official Coronavirus NoS continue to rise: Dead 1017; definitely infected 42,708; additional cases prob infected 21,675; recovered 4000. Good news is that, outside Hubei Province, the infected rate has now dropped for 7 days. Inside Hubei, esp Wuhan, sounds terrible.

🔴 UPDATE: Coronavirus 2019nCoV Severity:

➡️ Estimated fatality ratio for infections 1%
➡️ Estimated CFR for travellers outside mainland China (mix severe & milder cases) 1%-5%
➡️ Estimated CFR for detected cases in Hubei (severe cases) 18%

🔴 UK is finally waking up to this virus with now 8 diagnosed in last few days. A Brit flying from Singapore also seeded 4 infections in French Alps, and to Mallorca, Spain. (There’s maybe a colonial joke somewhere, but the virus is too serious to joke). – theguardian.com

🔴 Comunicato ufficiale del governo cinese di poco fa: Update: As of 10 Feb, 42638 confirmed cases (1016 fatalities, 3996 cured, 7333 severe cases), 21675 suspected cases were reported by China. 428.438 people are traced, 187.728 are under observation. On 1 Feb, number of cured cases overtook that of fatalities, now it’s thrice larger.

🔴 Rapporto “morti e guariti” degli ultimi sette giorni:
– 4 febbraio: guariti 892, morti 492, i morti sono al 35,55%.
– 5 febbraio: guariti 1153, morti 563, i morti sono al 32,81%.
– 6 febbraio: guariti 1335, morti 635, i morti sono al 32,23%.
– 7 febbraio: guariti 1838, morti 719, i morti sono al 28,12%.
– 8 febbraio: guariti 2649, morti 813, i morti sono al 23,48%.

– 10 febbraio: guariti 3996, morti 1016, i morti sono al 20,27%.

🔴 Interesting – Taiwan health Dept requires 2 consecutive negative virus tests to clear a person, while mainland China requires 3-4 negative tests to clear a case. I do think several neg tests are needed to truly clear a case (eg San Diego), but how many?

🔴 TIME TO ABANDON 🦠 SHIP. The Princess Diamond with 136 cases (largest cluster outside 🇨🇳) has become a live Petri dish. In fact, 10 crew also infected, crew also bunk together, +prepare food/serve others. Must evacuate 🛳 ASAP. ⁦C’mon WHO⁩ + Japan! – Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding/epidemiologist

🔴 Princess Diamond Ship:

Captain announced that Japan health officials have provided 45 doctors, 55 nurses, and 45 pharmacists on board Diamond Princess , all (I think) volunteers. Thank you, Japan.

🔴 Poor WESTERDAM cruise ship – The 🛳 has zero coronavirus cases, yet it’s been rejected by every port it tries to dock at. It will run out of food provisions on Feb 13th unless it can find a port, dock, and hopefully disembark. – bloomberg.com

🔴 Baby infected in Vietnam- a 3 month old from his infected grandmother. Oy. This 🦠 knows no bounds, even by the most well intentioned family members.

🔴 Almeno sei persone sono morte e altre 12 sono rimaste ferite nell’esplosione causata da un kamikaze a ovest di Kabul nei pressi di una accademia militare. – AGI
