Coronavirus epidemic continues wreaking havoc worldwide. According to worldometer.com, so far, 29,762,036 cases of coronavirus have been reported in the world. Of these, 21,563,605 people have recovered from this deadly virus, while 939,935 patients have died.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the effect of coronavirus in the US began in January 2020.
However, new research seems to dismiss this claim. According to UCLA, Coronavirus reached the US not in January 2020 but in December 2019. This research has been released in the Journal of Medical Internet.
The research team found that before December 22, the number of patients in many hospitals and clinics in the US suddenly increased. Most of the patients had sudden breathing problems and body pain problems. The first case in the US was revealed in mid-January. This person had returned from Wuhan, China.
Low risk of infection in youths: WHO
The number of cases of COVID-19 reported worldwide is less than 10% of patients under 20 years of age. Only 0.2 percent of people of this age died. The figures were released by the WHO on Tuesday night.
However, the organization also said that more research is needed on this as children should also be included. The organization said- We know that this virus is fatal even for children. Mild symptoms have also been seen in them.
New Zealand succeeded in controlling virus again:
New Zealand has once again succeeded in overcoming the virus through strict measures. There was no new case reported here on Tuesday for the second consecutive day. However, despite this, the Health Ministry is very cautious.
The government has issued a fresh guideline to Isolation and Quarantine facilities. So far 25 people have died of coronavirus in New Zealand. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Tuesday – We cannot be careless about the situation. The risk of community spread can be fatal anytime. The restrictions will continue until Monday.
