Coronavirus News Updates February 2020

January Timeline:

How dangerous is the coronavirus?

There are three parameters to know to assess the magnitude of the risk posed by this novel coronavirus:

How contagious is that the Wuhan Coronavirus? (Ro)

The attack rate or transmissibility (how rapidly the disease spreads) of a virus is indicated by its reproductive number (Ro, pronounced R-nought or r-zero), representing the average number of individuals to which a single infected person will transmit the virus.

The WHO's estimated (on Jan. 23) Ro to be between 1.4 and 2.5.

Other studies have estimated a Ro between 3.6 and 4.0 and between 2.24 to 3.58.

Preliminary studies had estimated Ro to be between 1.5 and 3.5.

An outbreak with a reproductive number of below one will gradually disappear.

For comparison, the Ro for the common flu is 1.3, and for SARS, it was 2.0.

Fatality Rate (case fatality ratio or CFR) of the Wuhan Coronavirus

The novel coronavirus' case death rate has been estimated at around 2% within the WHO press conference held on January 29, 2020. However, it noted that it had been too early to be ready to put a percentage on the death rate figure without knowing what percentage were infected.

A prior estimate had put that number at 3%.

The fatality rate can change as a virus can mutate, in keeping with epidemiologists.

For comparison, the case mortality rate for SARS was 10%, and for MERS 34%.

Incubation Period (how long it takes for the symptoms to appear)

The symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 (estimated ranges vary from 2-10 days, 2-14 days, and 10-14 days), during which the virus is contagious. Still, the patient doesn't display any symptoms (asymptomatic transmission).

The age and conditions of Coronavirus cases

According to early estimates by China's National Health Commission (NHC), about 80% of those who died were over 60, and 75% had pre-existing health conditions like cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

According to the WHO Situation Report no. 7 issued on Jan. 27th:

A study of 138 hospitalized patients with NCIP found that the median age was 56 years (interquartile range, 42-68; span, 22-92 years), and 75 (54.3%) were men.

The WHO, in its Myth busters FAQs, addresses the question: "Does the new coronavirus affect older people, or are younger people also susceptible?" by answering that:

The patient who died within the Philippines was a 44-year old male.

The patient who died within the Philippines on February 2, in what was the first death occurring outside of China, was a 44-year-old Chinese man from Wuhan who was admitted on January 25 after experiencing fever, cough, and pharyngitis, before developing severe pneumonia. In a previous couple of days, "the patient was stable and showed signs of improvement, however, the condition of the patient deteriorated within his last 24 hours leading to his demise," in line with the Philippine Department of Health.

Severe Cases of 30-year-old patients in France

As of January 29, in line with French authorities, the conditions of the 2 earliest Paris cases had worsened, and therefore the patients were being treated in intensive care, per French authorities. The patients have been described as a young couple aged 30 and 31 years old, both Chinese citizens from Wuhan who were asymptomatic after arriving in Paris on January 18.

The Age and Sex of the first deaths as reported by the China National Health Commission (NHC)

The NHC reported the first 17 deaths up to 24 pm on January 22, 2020. The casualties included 13 males and four females. The median age of the deaths was 75 (range 48-89) years.

The WHO Risk Assessment: Global Emergency

On January 30, the World Health Organization public the coronavirus outbreak is a Global Public Health Emergency.
