WHO Director-General says coronavirus outbreak in China is just ‘the tip of the iceberg’

Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the spread of coronavirus outside China could accelerate. He tweeted that had been cases of coronavirus in people with no travel history to China. It means that all countries should be ready for an outbreak of 2019-nCoV, and the situation in China may be just ‘the tip of the iceberg.’
According to the WHO data, as of February 10, 330 people from 28 countries outside China were infected with coronavirus, bringing the total number of infected people to more than 40,000, or, more precisely, 40,554. The virus killed 910 people, with the highest number of casualties in one day recorded on February 10, when 97 people died. On the same day, 2,987 patients were diagnosed with coronavirus by Chinese laboratories.

Russia has reported only two cases of coronavirus. The infected people are Chinese citizens. They are being treated, and those who came into contact with them have been isolated.
According to doctors, the best way to prevent infection is to wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water and use hand sanitizer.
