중국 코로나바이러스 발병, 사스 사태 이후 볼 수 없는 수준 확산 우려


    17명의 목숨을 앗아간 치명적인 신종 코로나바이러스의 확산을 막기 위해 중국 내 제3의 도시가 폐쇄될 예정이다.


베이징의 주요 새해 행사는 취소되었고, 후베이성 남동부 양쯔강 남쪽에 있는 도시인 어저우(Ezhou, 鄂州) 당국은 기차역을 폐쇄했으며, 후베이성 동부도시 황강은 공공 버스와 기차역을 폐쇄할 뿐만 아니라 영화관과 인터넷 카페도 문을 닫을 것을 명령할 것이라고 발표했다.


이러한 양상은 발병의 중심에 있는 도시인 우한시가 여전히 폐쇄된 상태로 있고, 모든 출입국 항공편이 취소되고, 주민들이 식량 공급에 필사적인 가족들이 싸우면서 떠나는 것이 금지되고 혼란스러운 장면들이 벌어지고 있는 가운데 이루어졌다.

공식 통계에 따르면 거의 600명의 감염 환자가 이 질병으로 인해 사망했다고 한다. 그러나 과학자들은 어제 우한에서만 1만 명에 달하는 사람들이 감염되었을 수 있다고 경고했다. 전문가들은 이미 영국까지 번진 사스 같은 바이러스를 배제할 수 없다고 말했다. 다른 이들은 2003년 사스 이후 이렇게 빨리 퍼진 바이러스가 없다고 말했다.

A third city in China is going into lockdown as officials battle to stop the spread of the deadly new coronavirus that has killed 17, left hundreds seriously ill and potentially infected thousands. 


Major Chinese New Year events in Beijing have been cancelled, authorities in Ezhou have shut down train stations, and Huanggang has announced it will suspend public buses and trains as well as ordering cinemas and internet cafes to close their doors.


The development comes as Wuhan – the city at the centre of the outbreak – remains in lockdown, with all flights in and outbound cancelled, residents banned from leaving and scenes of chaos as desperate families fight for food supplies. 


Chinese authorities say 17 people have died and more than 500 have been infected, air and rail departures from Wuhan are suspended from January 23 





Official figures show almost 600 patients have been struck down by the disease - but scientists yesterday warned as many as 10,000 people could have been infected in Wuhan alone. Experts said they couldn't rule out the SARS-like virus already being in the UK. Others have said no virus has spread this far this quickly since SARS in 2003. 


Chinese officials are disinfecting whole streets and parks with clouds of gas and chilling footage has emerged of roadside quarantine tents, hastily erected to isolate suspected cases.  One resident told the BBC the atmosphere in the city felt like 'the end of the world'.


Travellers have spread the coronavirus to seven countries already, including the US. European health officials fear the never-before-seen virus will reach the continent, with the UK and other nations already on high alert. 


It was revealed today that an American man infected with the deadly virus – which Chinese officials have warned will mutate and become deadlier – came into close contact with at least 16 people before he was put in isolation. 


According to health officials, the unnamed man from Washington state, who is in his 30s, wasn't diagnosed until Monday, January 20 - five days after he returned from China.
