Coronavirus Deaths Hits 170 As WHO Holds Emergency Meeting

The death toll from the deadly coronavirus infections in China has hit 170, just two weeks after the outbreak.
 
Grim latest news is that at least one case has been confirmed in Tibet, implying that the virus has now registered presence in every single region in mainland China.
 
Chinese health authorities say so far there are 7,711 confirmed cases of infections as at yesterday, January 29th.
 
The infections have also spread to fifteen other countries, with Ghana’s Westerly neighbour, La Cote d’Ivoire, having at least one person under observation on suspicion of contraction.
 
The outbreak is suspected to have originated from a seafood market in Wuhan, in the Hubei Province in mainland China.
 
Yesterday, authorities in Ghana announced that no Ghanaian, both home and abroad, have been infected yet and that it is putting in place a rapid response system.
 
Thousands of Ghanaian students in China have been advised to stay indoors and be circumspect with personal hygiene.
 
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization met today to consider whether to declare the outbreak, global health emergency.
