The World Health Organization (WHO) has changed the risk assessment of the new coronavirus. This is stated in a new report from the agency. According to new estimates, the risk of the virus is "high" worldwide and "very high" in China.
The agency reports that the indication of “moderate” risk in the latest documents was erroneous.
Kommersant quotes the WHO explanation to the document:
"There was an error in the situation reports published on January 23rd, 24th and 25th, which incorrectly indicated the global risk as moderate."
The agency emphasizes that a change in the assessment of global risk does not mean a state of emergency due to a new infection.
On the morning of January 28, the death toll from novel coronavirus pneumonia was 106, up from 81 a day earlier. The number of cases has reached more than 4500 people.
According to scientists from the University of Hong Kong, on January 25, the number of cases, including people with the disease at the stage of the incubation period, should have reached 43,590 people. Mathematical models predict that this number should double every 6.2 days. Reported by the South China Morning Post.
