The first batch of wards are being installed at the new Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan, which is devoted to treating the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) pneumonia patients.

Located near the Wuhan Workers' Sanatorium in the Caidian District in the western suburbs, the Huoshenshan Hospital is designed to have 1,000 beds for providing isolated and efficient treatment of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) pneumonia patients.

The hospital is scheduled to be put into use by Feb. 3.

"When the well-decorated movable plank houses are finished, sanitary appliances and medical facilities will be installed," said Liu Fei, a worker of the Huoshenshan Hospital.

As of 15:00 on Monday, more than 300 workers had been organized to piece together the wards, which would be installed in 300 rooms a day. According to the construction plan, it will take about three days to complete the installation of the 1,000 wards.

"The 1,000 sets of movable plank house materials are all ready and 470 sets have already been delivered. We must not have the materials delayed," said Yang Ning, another worker.

To accelerate project progress, the whole site has been divided into several areas to carry out non-stop work at different stages.

German authorities on Tuesday said the country's first patient of a deadly new virus likely contracted it from a Chinese national who recently travelled from the nation.

In a news conference in the Bavarian capital Munich, a health and food safety official said that the 33-year-old man from the nearby town of Starnberg was being isolated and medically monitoried for the coronavirus.

The patient had attended a work meeting in the Starnberg district on January 21 and a Chinese woman, working for the same company, was also there, according to Bavarian Health Minister Melanie Huml.

The woman, who hadn't previously shown any symptoms, then flew home on Thursday and went to a doctor after feeling ill on her flight.

Officials added that before the woman travelled to Germany, she had seen her parents, who come from Hubei province, the region where the new virus originated from.

Health Minister Huml said that the risk of the infection to the general population in Bavaria was "low."

She also said that the government was considering "whether it might be useful" to implement medical scanning equipment at airports amid the virus outbreak.

Germany is the second European country to report a confirmed case of the virus.

Authorities in France confirmed three cases in recent days - all Chinese citizens who recently returned from travels there.

The viral disease has killed at least 106 people in China.

"And when you look at the current case, the patient is doing well. However, he is still isolated at the Schwabing Clinic in Munich, where he is under medical supervision. The contact person's investigation is running at full speed. Particularly in the family environment and in the company's surroundings, who have already been informed. Further measures will be to set up a hotline, where concerned citizens can also turn to in case of questions. This will be done today."

6. SOUNDBITE (German) Andreas Zapf, Head of Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL):

"It is about a 33-year-old man, employee of a company in the Starnberg district, who attended a meeting last Tuesday, January 21, here in the Starnberg district. The trainer, or at least someone who also attended the meeting, but more likely in a leadership role from what we have heard - was a Chinese woman. This company also has branches in China."

Community hospitals in Wuhan, the center of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak in Central China's Hubei Province, are actively playing their role in screening fever patients and implementing hierarchical diagnosis and treatment, so as to ease the burden of big hospitals.

In view of some problems such as long waiting time at fever clinics, untimely bed arrangements and cross-infection in some big hospitals, the Wuhan government on Friday published a notice about hierarchical medical services, advising those who are not seriously ill to go to community hospitals at first.

A community hospital in Wuchang District serves nearly 90,000 people in nine nearby communities. Since the epidemic broke out, the hospital has become the first choice of many local residents.

"My father got a fever and we accompany him to see a doctor here. He lost voice the day before yesterday and we suspected he had a cold for wearing less clothes," said a local resident, adding that it unnecessary to go to the big hospitals such as the Grade 3A hospitals where cross-infection may occur.

"I received 55 patients today, of whom nearly 20 had fever. Of those 20 patients, two are suspicious cases of new type of viral pneumonia and have been transferred for treatment," said Chen Chaoyan, doctor at the community hospital.

Hierarchical diagnosis and treatment could not only provide timely medical service to those in need, effectively reduce the risk of cross-infection, but also greatly ease the burden at big hospitals and ensure effective use of medical resource.

"Community hospitals' preliminary screening for residents who get a fever will ease the big hospitals' burden to some extent. Winter is a season when infectious diseases are prevalent, and influenza and other fever diseases are common, but not every patient is infected with the new coronavirus. After preliminary screening, there won't be so many patients coming to big hospitals, and the risk of cross-infection will also be reduced. Besides, the diagnostic reports from community hospitals can help doctors in big hospitals to give rapid diagnosis, and therefore ease the big hospitals' manpower burden at fever clinics," said Wang Qiongshu, director at the disease control and prevention department of the General Hospital of the Central Theater Command of the People's Liberation Army.

Deaths from a new viral disease that is causing mounting global concern rose to at least 106 in China, officials in Beijing said Tuesday.

  

The total includes the first death in Beijing itself, and 24 more fatalities in Hubei province, where the first illnesses from the newly identified coronavirus occurred in December.

1,771 new cases were confirmed on Monday, raising the national total to 4,515, according to the National Health Commission.

It said 976 people were in serious condition.

  

Asian stock markets tumbled for a second day, dragged down by worries about the virus’s global economic impact.

Li Xingwang, a member of the country's medical experts team, said it was essential to control the source of the infection.

7. SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) Li Xingwang, member of medical experts team:

"There are some patients with symptoms, such as unapparent fever, occasional dry cough or fatigue. These patients are found after we proactively increase the search and detection ability. Such patients, from the perspective of infectious disease laws, also have infectivity, which bring certain difficulties and complexity to our prevention and control work."

9. SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) Li Xingwang, member of medical experts team:

"Now most asymptomatic infections are found among close contacts. These close contacts are now undergoing medical observation according to our requirements. They cannot freely go to public places or engage in outdoor activities. Home quarantine ensures that we have control over the source of infection. Therefore, I think it is important to control the source of infection so that the spread of the epidemic can be contained to the greatest extent."

Not long after its outbreak, in less than a month, the Spring Festival travel rush started. That's why many people, especially those from Wuhan where the market of the virus originally stems located, traveled to other places. This fastened the spread of the disease and caused a broader region affected. In addition, in Wuhan where there were some leftover suspected cases, many of them have been confirmed now. This also contributed to a faster growth of the confirmed numbers."

This means the epidemic is expanding, and it has not been completely controlled."

The rapid growth number of China’s confirmed novel coronavirus infections is contributed by a number of factors, and the newly published plan to extend the Lunar New Year holiday was a result from balanced consideration that would benefit both the block of the disease and the normal order of the society, a senior health official said Monday.

By the end of Sunday, a total of 2,744 cumulative confirmed cases of the new pneumonia had been reported in China, with 80 deaths and 461 cases in severe condition.

Feng Zijian, deputy director of Chinese Center For Disease Control And Prevention, explained the reasons behind the increasing of the number which raised questions among many.

"First of all, I think it is related to the virus' transmission ability. It seems this virus has relatively strong human-to-human transmission ability. There is another factor that contributed to the rapid growth of the numbers. The virus outbreak started from the beginning of December, if not earlier or later. Not long after its outbreak, in less than a month, the Spring Festival travel rush started. That's why many people, especially those from Wuhan where the market of the virus originally stems located, traveled to other places. This fastened the spread of the disease and caused a broader region affected. In addition, in Wuhan where there were some leftover suspected cases, many of them have been confirmed now. This also contributed to a faster growth of the confirmed numbers," Feng said.

As a measure to contain the disease's spread, China announced Monday that the Lunar New Year holiday will be extended to Feb. 2 in some regions, a 3-day extension to the original holiday schedule.

From an medical expert's perspective, Feng said, the longer the holiday extends, the better it is for the control of the disease. But the decision of the holiday extension was made based on a balanced view for the operation of the society.

"We have to take a balance, because people have to live, they have to work, the emergency supplies need to be produced and delivered. The prevention and control of epidemics and the emergency response to the diseases must take these factors into consideration. It should benefit the interruption of disease transmission, and reduce the impact to people's daily life as well as the impact to the society's operation and economy. It needs to be balanced," he said.

Feng evaluated on the current situation of the epidemic, "The good news is, the precautionary measures are widely and effectively conducted and implemented in communities. We are also able to utilize many high-tech methods during the prevention and control process, for example, on the tracing of close contacts and the infected, to help us block and control of the epidemic. I think this is a good news. The bad news is that the number of the confirmed cases is increasing, and the number of places with the infection is also increasing. This means the epidemic is expanding, and it has not been completely controlled."

Wuhan City, Hubei Province, central China - Jan 27, 2020 (CCTV - No access Chinese mainland)

1. Press briefing of Information Office of Hubei Provincial People's Government

2. SOUNDBITE (Chinese) Ma Guoqiang, Deputy Secretary, Communist Party of China Hubei Provincial Committee:

"Since the outbreak, the number of patients going to fever clinics has been climbing. At this time of year, the fever clinics in Wuhan normally receive about 3,000 patients (per day). But in the past few days, the number of people who went to the fever clinics during peak hours exceeded 15,000. Faced with the instantaneous increase in the patient inflow, the fever clinics were all overloaded and yet there were still many people waiting. In response to such a problem, we have quickly adopted a plan."

3. Press briefing in progress

4. SOUNDBITE (Chinese) Ma Guoqiang, Deputy Secretary, Communist Party of China Hubei Provincial Committee:

"The 62 fever clinics in Wuhan locate in different regions and some are more well-known than others. People tend to go to fever clinics at major and well-known hospitals. Therefore we think proper guidance is needed and measures similar to the appointment system have been taken to guide the patients to the fever clinic nearby. Through our work, in the past two days, the situation of long queues outside fever clinics has been somewhat relieved."

Central China's Wuhan will further beef up efforts to ease the overloading of fever clinics amid the spread of the viral pneumonia caused by a novel coronavirus, said a senior provincial official on Monday.

Ma Guoqiang, Deputy Secretary of the Communist Party of China Hubei Provincial Committee, made the remarks at a press conference of the Information Office of Hubei Provincial People's Government on the latest information of the epidemic.

"Since the outbreak, the number of patients going to fever clinics has been climbing. At this time of year, the fever clinics in Wuhan normally receive about 3,000 patients (per day). But in the past few days, the number of people who went to the fever clinics during peak hours exceeded 15,000. Faced with the instantaneous increase in the patient inflow, the fever clinics were all overloaded and yet there were still many people waiting. In response to such a problem, we have quickly adopted a plan," Ma said.

Ma introduced that the first step is that all the citizens are advised to take their body temperature every day at home. If the temperature is above the line (37.3 degrees Celsius) or overly high for three times, the patient needs to go to the community health center for preliminary diagnosis and treatment. The community health centers are equipped with medical resources to screen the symptoms that cause the fever, like common cold.

For severe cases and upon the recommendation of the community health center, the second step is to go to the fever clinics and there are currently 62 fever clinics in Wuhan.

"The 62 fever clinics in Wuhan locate in different regions and some are more well-known than others. People tend to go to fever clinics at major and well-known hospitals. Therefore we think proper guidance is needed and measures similar to the appointment system have been taken to guide the patients to the fever clinic nearby. Through our work, in the past two days, the situation of long queues outside fever clinics has been somewhat relieved," Ma said.

Ma added that concerted efforts are needed to ease the hospital overloading and media supervision is much appreciated.

Currently, Wuhan are building two makeshift hospitals, Huoshenshan with 700 to 1,000 beds and Leishenshan with a capacity of 1,300 to 1,500 beds, to treat the new pneumonia patients. The Huoshenshan and Leishenshan hospitals will be put into use on Feb. 3 and Feb. 5, respectively.

As a deadly new coronavirus spreads, Northwestern University professor Karla Satchell is one of the scientists around the world racing to stop it.

Satchell is leading a national team of scientists who are investigating the structure of the coronvirus to understan how to stop it from replicating in human cells.

She and her team are mapping the structure of some of the 28 proteins in the virus to see where drugs can throw a chemical monkey wrench into its machinery.

The proteins from the coronavirus are 70 to 99-percent identical to those in SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), Satchell says, adding:  "The machinery that makes up the viral particles has many different functions. And so a great example would be if you were a factory, you might have many different kinds of machines that would be used to produce, for example, a car. And if you can block those machines from functioning, you could block a car from being assembled. A virus works the same way."

Chicago - 27 January 2020

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"What's scary to me about the new coronavirus is anytime you have something new, you just have many unknowns. And we don't know how fast this is going to spread, and we don't know how infectious it's going to be, if it were to spread worldwide."

3. Mid of Satchell looking into microscope

"What makes coronavirus a particular challenge is that, like all viruses, it has the capacity to change. And so as what we know about related viruses such as SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) doesn't always tell us exactly how to treat or prevent illnesses in people who might contract this particular coronavirus."

4. Close of Satchell's hand holding tray under microscope

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"And so it's important for us to generate scientific information as fast as possible to determine if what we know from having studied SARS will apply to this new coronavirus."

6. Mid of Satchell looking at SARS model on computer

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"The machinery that makes up the viral particles has many different functions. And so a great example would be if you were a factory, you might have many different kinds of machines that would be used to produce, for example, a car. And if you can block those machines from functioning, you could block a car from being assembled. A virus works the same way. And it has to actually make many different components of that virus before that virus is fully intact. And many of those different machines can be blocked by introducing chemicals which can be developed as drugs."

8. Close of SARS model on computer screen, with Satchell's finger pointing out different aspects. UPSOUND: "This protein structure, this is the protein from the SARS virus."

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"We specialize in understanding protein structure. So proteins are the little components that actually make up the viral particle, but they're also the components that make up the machines that will build that particle."

10. Close of Satchell's hand on computer mouse

11. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"And we're particularly interested in the structure of those machines so we can understand how to keep those machines from functioning by introducing chemicals, or potentially drugs, that would block the function of that machine."

12. Mid of Satchell looking through microscope

13. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"The timeline in order to produce the kind of information that we're looking at can be on a week to a month's scale. So what we can determine in a very short period of time is the structure of the new viral machineries, or the new viral particle pieces, and we can ask if drugs that were developed in the past to treat other viruses will be useful to treat this new coronavirus."

14. Close of Satchell's hand holding tray under the microscope

15. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"We have taken information from the viral genome, which is the the code of that virus that tells how to build the viral particle, and we have taken that code and we're using it to generate three dimensional information about what these machines will look like."

16. Close of Satchell's eyes looking into microscope

17. SOUNDBITE (English) Professor Karla Satchell, PhD, Northwestern University scientist studying coronavirus:

"Is we're trying to determine these three dimensional structures so that we can compare them to SARS. The goal of which is to determine if drugs already developed for SARS could be useful for treatment of this new coronavirus."

Community staff, volunteers and construction workers have joined the full-scale battle against the pneumonia epidemic caused by a novel coronavirus in Wuhan City, central China's Hubei Province.

While the medical workers are fighting the outbreak on the front line, community staff and volunteers are pooling efforts to curb the virus spread on individual and household level and ensure people's basic living needs being met.

In Dongting Community, volunteer He Bin was busy disinfecting his taxi.

Since the suspension of public transportation on Jan. 23, the municipal government has been recruiting volunteers who are taxi or ride-hailing drivers to provide free transportation for the communities and facilitate the daily travel of medical workers and local residents.

The 56-year-old He immediately signed up after hearing the news.

"As a local I just want to contribute to Wuhan. There are many volunteers, including those in my community. Residents can call them at any time and the volunteers will help them with their needs," He said.

In addition to driving, volunteers will also provide home services such as meal delivery and medicine delivery for the elderly who have difficulty in living. Ride-hailing car driver Ma Donghong, who had been busy all morning, was about to take the patient to the hospital for dialysis, so he could only had instant noodles for lunch.

In addition to providing transportation service, the volunteers also help the local residents in many other ways, like the delivery of food and medicine.

"We encourage each other and work together. I hope the epidemic can go away and we can get the normal life back," Ma said.

In the fight against the epidemic, the community staff is all out doing the daily disinfection and the screening of residents with fever. The residents are also doing their best to contribute their part in this battle.

Local resident Liu Ziyuan was sweeping the stairs and corridor in her community.

"I have more time so I do more for the community. A clean environment will give people a sense of security. With our country and our community attaching so much importance to the prevention and control of the epidemic, nothing is too difficult to overcome," Liu said.

Leishenshan Hospital, Wuhan's second makeshift hospital which has been designed to receive coronavirus pneumonia patients is under construction. More than 1,000 workers have been working on two shifts around the clock since they entered the construction site on Saturday.

At present, the land-leveling work has been finished.

"My wife is a medical worker and I am a builder of the Leishenshan Hospital. Our goal right now is to build this hospital better so that all medical staff like my wife can work worry-free and feel more secure," said Zheng Hongsheng, a staff member on the logistics support team of China Construction Third Engineering Bureau' Leishenshan Hospital Project.

"We watched the news. General Secretary [Xi Jinping] gave the instructions of our work, which reaffirmed our resolution to win this battle," said Zhang Zhigang, team head of the site safety and epidemic prevention team of the Leishenshan Hospital Project.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that screening protocols were in place to check people coming in to the country for the new virus from China.

He further reassured British citizens in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak, that they would be given more information "in due course."

France, which has confirmed three cases of the new virus, said it may evacuate other European residents from the virus-stricken city on a special flight for French citizens seeking to leave.

To date there have been no confirmed cases of the new coronavirus in the UK and more than 70 people have tested negatively for the disease.

But health officials have said it is "highly likely" to reach the UK.

The virus has sickened thousands of people, mostly in China, and caused dozens of deaths.

Chinese health authorities say the new virus has infected 2,744 people and killed 80 as of midnight Sunday.

London - 27 January 2020

1. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister:

Reporter asking off-camera: "There are a number of British citizens ion Wuhan, who are getting increasingly frustrated at the lack of detail. They've heard from the Foreign Office that solutions are being looked at but when can they expect detail about what you are going to do to help?"

Johnson: "Well, we are looking at everything we can to give reassurance to those people in Wuhan and you'll be hearing a bit more in due course. I don't want to preempt the decisions we're going to make. I should say that obviously we're doing everything we can to ensure that people who do come to this country, are properly screened and checked, if they've come from an area that is known to have the infection. So far, so far there is still not a case of somebody with coronavirus here in the UK. But clearly there are a lot of cases in China and it is spreading."

Hong Kong's Health Protection Center on Sunday confirmed two new cases of pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), raising the total number of confirmed cases to eight, and the Special Administrative Region (SAR) Government has taken multiple measures to curb the spread of the epidemic.

As of Sunday, the Health Protection Center received a total of 382 suspected cases, of which eight were confirmed, 219 were excluded, and the remaining 155 are hospitalized for medical observation.

The SAR government on Saturday raised the government response to the new coronavirus pneumonia to the highest level with a series of measures from indefinitely suspending trains and flights to and from Wuhan to suspending classes for a longer period.

The government response was lifted to the emergency level, the highest in its three-tier system, after the serious level was activated three weeks ago.

Staff members are required to frequently disinfect the gates, elevators and other equipment in Hong Kong's West Kowloon Station. Various notices are posted at the station to remind passengers of sanitation details, and the radio also continuously broadcasts relevant prevention and control knowledge.

To control the spread of the epidemic, Hong Kong has also strengthened the monitoring of the body temperature of people entering and leaving the SAR, and added relevant information to the government's health advice on traveling.

Several large-scale public events have been called off, including Standard Chartered-sponsored Hong Kong Marathon, Lunar New Year Lantern Carnivals, and the Spring Reception of the HKSAR government.

Primary and secondary schools, kindergartens, and special schools that were expected to resume class at the beginning of February will not reopen until Feb. 17, according to preliminary plans, with further assessment still needed.

Public health experts in Hong Kong warned on Monday that there could be thousands more carriers of a new virus from China, despite sweeping efforts to contain the disease.

Chinese health authorities say the new virus has infected 2,744 people and killed 80 as of midnight Sunday.

Analysis of data, according to Professor Gabriel Leung, Dean of Medicine at the University of Hong Kong, suggests there could actually be up 26,000 people infected with the new coronavirus.

And on top of that, there could have been up to 44,000 people incubating the virus.

Leung warned that quarantine and travel control measures implemented so far might not have made a difference to the spread of the virus, and said precautionary preparations to deal with a global epidemic had to be stepped up.

The virus is from the coronavirus family that includes the common cold but also more severe illnesses like SARS and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.

The new virus causes cold- and flu-like symptoms, including cough and fever, and in more severe cases, shortness of breath and pneumonia.

This is not a certainty by any stretch of the imagination, but there is a 'not weak', or that is 'not insubstantial' probability that this might happen, and therefore we must prepare better for it."

A group of 200 medical workers from hospitals in east China's Jiangsu Province are ready to aid the city of Wuhan of central China, a place worst-hit by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

Wu Weijuan is a member of the group. She is the head nurse of neurosurgery department of Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine. She was officially notified Thursday to be one of the first medical team members from Jiangsu to aid Wuhan.

"I signed up while attending the mobilization meeting. I didn't think too much. I thought they must need us there. I believe every medical worker would think so," said Wu.

And seeing from the current situation of the coronavirus, there are still many patients in serious condition, the situation is grave. As a specialist physician, if I could not go for rescue, I would always feel regret," said Chen, from critical care medicine department.

Chen's wife Yuan Yu also worked as a nurse in the same hospital. She said she could understand her husband's decision and she will give full support to him.

"I've come to boost confidence for him and to tell him to rest assured that I will stay behind and protect our family," said Yuan.

China's National Health Commission on Monday said the death toll from a new virus had risen to 80, with 2,744 confirmed cases, 769 of which were new cases confirmed in the 24 hours through midnight Sunday.

A senior inspector of the Commission's Disease Control and Prevention Bureau said the situation was at a "critical moment" and urged local governments to strengthen community-based prevention and control.

The development came as China expanded sweeping efforts to contain the viral disease by extending the Lunar New Year holiday to keep the public at home and avoid spreading infection.

Increasingly drastic anti-disease efforts began with the suspension on 22 January of transport links to Wuhan, a city of 11 million people in central China where the virus was first detected last month.

That lockdown has expanded to a total of 17 cities with more than 50 million people in the most far-reaching disease-control measures ever imposed.

The virus is from the coronavirus family that includes the common cold, but also more severe illnesses like SARS and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.

The new virus causes cold- and flu-like symptoms, including cough and fever, and in more severe cases, shortness of breath and pneumonia.

5. SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) He Qinghua, senior inspector, National Health Commission disease control and prevention bureau:

"At present, the epidemic prevention and control is at a critical moment. It is necessary to give full play to the mobilisation ability of grass-roots communities, including rural communities, implement carpet-like tracking and grid-based management, and ensure every household and individual fully exercise the prevention and control measures. With the stable group control and prevention in the communities, anti-input, anti-spread and anti-output can be effectively realised."

About 1,000 more infection cases of pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus may be confirmed in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, the city's mayor said on Monday.

Zhou Xianwang, the mayor, said that as of Sunday morning, there had been 618 cases reported in Wuhan, 40 patients were recovered, 45 people died. But he added that more cases are expected to be confirmed in the coming days among the suspicious cases.

"Now, 2,209 people are treated as suspected patients in hospitals, and 643 people were being quarantined at fever section for outpatients. So there are nearly 2,700 unconfirmed cases. It is estimated that 45 percent of these cases will be confirmed. So it is likely that there will be around 1,000 more confirmed cases," said Zhou.

To battle the pneumonia outbreak, the megacity has announced to suspend public transportation, and close the airport and railway stations to outgoing passengers, while asking citizens not to leave the city without specific reasons.

The control measures may have caused some inconvenience to those living there, but Zhou said the government will try its best to ensure their daily life.

"There are more than 11 million permanent residents in Wuhan, of whom more than 9.9 million are registered population. The floating population in Wuhan is nearly five million. During the Spring Festival holiday, nearly five million people left Wuhan because of the festival or the epidemic, but more than nine million people are still living here.

Currently 533 cases are being treated in hospital, of which 87 are in severe condition and 53 in critical condition. These are all being treated in a quarantine environment in designated hospitals."

So in this sense the treatment is rather effective."

These two hospitals only have 350 beds combined, which is seriously insufficient, so we have requisitioned hospitals during this time, and 24 hospitals have been requisitioned so far with 10,000 beds to treat fever patients."

Wuhan has reported a total of 618 confirmed cases of pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) as of Saturday, according to the city's mayor in a press conference on Sunday.

Wuhan, the epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak, has been taking a quarantine measure of lockdown, while actively taking actions to contain the spread.

"As of 24:00 yesterday, or 00:00 today, there had been a total of 618 novel coronavirus-caused viral pneumonia cases, among which 40 had recovered and released from the hospital and 45 resulted in death. Currently 533 cases are being treated in hospital, of which 87 are in severe condition and 53 in critical condition. These are all being treated in a quarantine environment in designated hospitals," said Zhou Xianwang, the mayor.

Zhou also explained why recovered rate seemed low base on the numbers released.

"Once cured, the patient needs to remain in the hospital for 12 days of observation which includes thorough checks. Thus the discharge speed is slowed down a bit. We have 40 discharged, but nearly 80 others are currently cured and under observation. So if they are stable in these 12 days, they will be discharged. So in this sense the treatment is rather effective," said Zhou.

The mayor also says the city has readied more hospitals to take in fever patients suspected of infection with the virus.

"As we know this is an infectious disease, the state has confirmed it as a category B infectious disease, but is handling it as category A. Therefore it requires specialized hospitals. But Wuhan only has two such specialized hospitals: Jinyintan Hospital and Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital. These two hospitals only have 350 beds combined, which is seriously insufficient, so we have requisitioned hospitals during this time, and 24 hospitals have been requisitioned so far with 10,000 beds to treat fever patients," said Zhou.

The city also coordinated with some hotels adjacent to designated hospitals so that medical workers may rest and refresh during breaks.

The mayor also said 12 medical teams, over 900 medical staff from around the country have arrived Wuhan to help combating the outbreak.

France's government announced Sunday it will repatriate potentially hundreds of French citizens from the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of a deadly new virus.

Those French citizens who want to leave Wuhan will be taken on a direct flight to France in the middle of the week, and then held in quarantine for 14 days, the French Health Minister Agnès Buzyn announced, after a special government meeting to discuss the spreading virus.

France is joining other countries planning evacuations from Wuhan, which is under lockdown by the Chinese government in an attempt to halt the spread of the pneumonia-like virus that has killed more than 50 people and infected nearly 2,000 people in China so far.

The U.S. Consulate in Wuhan announced it will evacuate its personnel and some private citizens aboard a charter flight on Tuesday.  

French hospitals are treating three confirmed cases of the new coronavirus - the first infections reported in Europe - and more are likely, officials said.

The confirmed cases are all Chinese citizens who recently returned from travels there.

2. SOUNDBITE (French) Agnès Buzyn, French Health Minister:

"The Prime Minister asked for the organization of a repatriation via direct flight, in agreement with the Chinese authorities. This will happen at the middle of next week. A dedicated medical team will accompany the flight and it is already being put together at the Health Ministry. In order to avoid the spreading of the virus on French soil, the people who will be flown back will be followed by medical teams and will spend 14 days at a housing facility."

4. SOUNDBITE (French) Agnès Buzyn, French Health Minister:

"It will range from several dozens to several hundreds so we are currently drawing up a list of our fellow citizens who wish to come back, with some wanting to come home but not spend 14 days at a housing facility and so they will have to take this obligation into consideration."

The CDC has isolated the virus and is currently identifying seed strain, said Xu Wenbo, head of the National Institute for Viral Disease Control and Prevention under the CDC, adding that they are also screening drugs targeting pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus.

Meanwhile the CDC is closely monitoring the virus to study how it mutates.

Anti-government demonstrators gathered on Sunday night to protest the Hong Kong government's response to a new viral illness that is spreading around the world.

The protesters are opposed to government plans to house quarantined patients or medical workers in the Fanling neighbourhood.

Fanling is a district far from Hong Kong's busy business centres where the government has announced it will requisition an as yet unoccupied public housing project called the Fai Ming Estate for the possible fallout of the new coronavirus.

Hong Kong on Sunday confirmed its sixth new virus case - a 47-year-old man who had been working in Wuhan, China.

In total, there were 107 patients staying in hospital for isolation and management in Hong Kong on Sunday.

China is taking more powerful measures to guarantee medical supplies and prevent and control the new coronavirus pneumonia outbreak, said officials from several government departments at a press conference in Beijing on Sunday.

According to the National Health Commission (NHC), a total of 1,975 confirmed cases of pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) have been reported from 30 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities on China's mainland by 24:00 Saturday, of which 324 were critical cases. So far a total of 56 deaths have been reported, and 49 patients have been cured and discharged from hospital.

The NHC has dispatched seven medical teams of over 900 medical workers to central China's Hubei Province, where the first case was reported and the accumulated confirmed cases topped the nation in number. The People's Liberation Army also sent a 450-strong medical team to Hubei. The NHC will send additional 12 teams of more than 1,600 medical workers to the province.

In accordance with the demand put up by Wuhan, the provincial capital of Hubei which has been sealed to contain the outbreak, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is working with various sectors to produce requested products of 20 varieties, including protective clothes and masks.

"In the next step we'd take more measures to satisfy the demands of the outbreak areas by all means. We'd even use the central reserves and try every means possible to restart or resume the production, so as to quickly increase the capacity from current 40 percent," said Wang Jiangping, vice minister of Industry and Information Technology.

According to the Ministry of Transport, passenger volume across the country continued to decline starting from Saturday. The railway sector stopped the operation of some lines to reduce the passenger flow, while giving priority to the transport of epidemic prevention goods.

"The current epidemic prevention and control is coupled with the guarantee work for the Spring Festival travel rush. We also hope that the broad masses of passengers could actively strengthen their self-protection, make scientific arrangements for their trips, and consciously cooperate with the inspection and quarantine work. I believe, with the joint efforts of all of us, we are surely to win this tough battle," said Liu Xiaoming, vice minister of Transport.

China's Health Commission Minister said the country was entering a "grave and complicated stage" as the ability of a new type of virus to spread is "getting stronger."

Speaking in Beijing, Ma Xiaowei declined to estimate how long it would take to bring the situation under control.

He said there was still limited knowledge of the mechanism of spread of the virus, as well as the risk of it mutating.

Gao Fu, Director of China's Centre for Disease Control and Prevention told reporters that scientists were closely watching the virus and its behaviour and so far no obvious changes has been found.

The new viral illness which is being watched with a wary eye around the globe accelerated its spread in China on Sunday with 56 deaths so far.

The epidemic has revived memories of the SARS outbreak that originated in China and killed nearly 800 as it spread around the world in 2002 and 2003.

Its spread has come amid China's busiest travel period of the year, when millions crisscross the country or head abroad for the Lunar New Year holiday.

"The ability of the virus to spread seems to be getting stronger. We need more clinical data to analyse its toxicity and virulence. The quickening spread of the epidemic has brought extra challenges and pressure to the work of prevention and control. Experts have assessed that the epidemic has entered a grave and complicated stage."

"Our knowledge of the new type of coronavirus is very limited. The source of infection has not been found. We are still not clear about the mechanism of it spreading and the risk of mutation. In other words, as a new type of contagious disease, it will bring new changes in the situation in the future."

"The growth of the epidemic is accelerating. I'm afraid it will last for a period of time. It is possible for us to see a continuous increase in the number of cases in the near future."

Companies across China have been working overtime for the medical supplies production to meet the demand after the outbreak of a new strain of coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province in December.

In Chengdu in southwest China's Sichuan Province, staff at companies for medical supplies successively came back to work on the mask production. Many who were in the far away Guizhou Province and Shanxi Province at the time rushed to Chengdu after they received the call. All the staff were in place on Thursday afternoon.

"We work from 07:00 in the morning to 22:00 at night, producing about 15,000 masks," said Li Tingzi, a staff member at a company.

The person in charge of another company in Chengdu producing medical supplies said 80 percent of the staff on the disposable surgical mask production line had come back by the Spring Festival, and the production line, which had been scheduled to stop production during the holiday, is now producing at full capacity.

In Richao City, east China's Shandong Province, workers have been working overtime since Wednesday, two days ahead of the Spring Festival holiday.

"All our staff are working overtime. We have four workshops in operation now, and we can produce about 1.5 million to 2 million [masks] a day. Now we continue to recruit all the employees who are on leave, so as to increase production," said Wang Changshen, president of Sanqi Medical and Health Products Company.

According to the plan, this company will provide medical protection supplies to Hubei Province from Jan. 23 to Feb. 10, including 20 million surgical protective masks in total, meaning 1 million per day, 1 million N95 medical protective masks, and 100,000 disposable protective clothing for medical use.

To meet the surging demand, Guangdong Province in the south contacted several mask and emergency supplies companies. According to the Department of Industry and Information Technology of Guangdong, ten companies resumed production which can produce 830,000 masks a day.

In Shanghai's Songjiang District, a hygienic production company organized workers producing masks and protectives suits on an emergency basis.

"We will try our best to make a contribution to the society. Just hurry up because there is a huge demand," said a worker.

The company decided to provide more than 60,000 masks to the market every day.

In another company in Jinshan District in Shanghai, workers stepped up producing masks and protective suits during the Spring Festival holiday, planning to provide 20,000 sets of medical products every day.

At present, many places such as Wuhan in Hubei Province, lack not only a variety of medical protection materials, but also electronic equipment for detecting epidemic.

A company in Beijing is now working overtime for production.

The infrared imaging thermometer produced in this company is based on human body's own infrared radiation for detection. Its technologies of "non-contact rapid infrared temperature measurement" and "abnormal target tracking and automatic alarm", can achieve rapid and accurate detection.

"The thermodetector in my hand can measure temperature ranging from minus 20 degrees Celsius to 150 degrees Celsius. It can measure objects as far as five meters away. The temperature is now set at 37.5 degrees Celsius. So it gives an alarm when I measure this black body of 38 degrees Celsius," said Qi Haijun, a research staff member of Photoelectric Science and Technology Company under the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation.

He Wenzhong, general manager of the company, said the main difficulty that they face at present is the shortage of all sorts of spare parts. They are trying their best to coordinate and provide more equipment support for Wuhan and the whole country.

"Now we can product about 20 to 30 thermodetectors every day. According to the needs of all parts of the country, we will first meet the demand of Wuhan, and then guarantee that more than five sets will be sent to the city every day. It is expected that a larger capacity can be formed after next Thursday as materials and assistance processing support will be in place, and it will not be difficult to meet the needs across the country after Feb. 3," said He.

In order to ensure the clearance of donated materials for epidemics of the novel coronavirus, the General Administration of Customs issued an announcement on Saturday regarding customs clearance procedures for imported donated materials.

According to the announcement, special reception and green channels are set up for imports of the prevention and control goods including imported medicines, disinfection materials, protective products and treatment equipment.

In emergency situation, the goods can register and give clearance and go through the procedures subsequently.

In the early morning of Monday, the Beijing Municipal Health Commission said an anti-AIDS drug -- lopinavir and ritonavir -- was recommended by the National Health Commission as a cure since it had achieved results in clinical treatment of the disease, and the city has reserves of the drug.

Three designated municipal hospitals undertaking treatment tasks are treating patients in accordance with the national diagnosis and treatment plan and according to the patient's condition, said the municipal heal commission.

Chinese eminent virologist Zhong Nanshan said Friday several drugs that have been confirmed safe are ready for clinical use to treat the patients with pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), but the therapeutic effect needs to be further observed.

Zhong, 84, a respiratory scientist, is renowned for his work in the fight against the outbreak of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003.

He played a huge role in discovering the SARS coronavirus, and managed the SARS outbreak in south China's Guangdong Province at the time. He was dubbed the "SARS hero", and his efforts made him a household name across the country.

Two photos circulated widely on social media showed Zhong taking a short break on the train on Jan. 18 to Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, the epicenter of the viral pneumonia outbreak and rushing to a hospital to learn about patients' conditions.

After his return trip from Wuhan, Zhong remained at his post and visited wards for pneumonia patients at the First Affiliate Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University on Friday, the eve of the Chinese Lunar New Year and also the start of the country's seven-day holiday.

Chinese health authorities announced Sunday 1,975 confirmed cases of pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus, including 324 in critical conditions, by the end of Saturday.

The pneumonia situation had resulted in 56 deaths, while 49 were cured and discharged, according to the National Health Commission.

A total of 2,684 suspected cases had also been reported.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong has five confirmed cases, Macao two, and Taiwan three.

There are 23 confirmed cases outside China, with four in Thailand, two in Japan, two in South Korea, two in the United States, two in Vietnam, three in Singapore, three in Malaysia, one in Nepal, three in France, and one in Australia.
