The story of the day: What to know about the deadly outbreak of coronavirus in the USA massive spike in coronaviruses worldwide is likely, and it could be linked to the spread of the Zika virus, a leading expert warns.
“This is not a joke,” said Dr. David Reich, a professor of infectious diseases at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a former chair of the World Health Organization’s advisory panel on the spread and treatment of coronas.
He said it was the first time coronaviral coronavirene has spread to humans, and that it was likely to have happened before Zika had been identified.
The CDC confirmed on Thursday that the outbreak began on January 26.
The new cases were found in Florida, Texas and New York.
“We’re seeing a lot more people,” Reich said.
“It’s more intense.”
“We have no idea who the first person to get it, but it’s certainly not us.”
The CDC said that a person who has not yet traveled to an infected area can still catch the virus, but that only about 1 percent of people infected will have a risk of spreading it to others.
The agency added that there was no evidence of transmission from people who had not been vaccinated for the virus.
The new coronaviring cases are only a fraction of the hundreds of cases the agency is expecting, but they’re significant.
“The numbers are very, very, large,” Reich told Fox News.
“What is particularly interesting is, they’re only the tip of the iceberg.”
“It’s not just about the number of people who are catching it.
We’ve got a lot of people out there that are not.
So, we’re definitely seeing a shift in who we are in the U.S.,” he added.
The U.K.’s Health Protection Agency said that it has confirmed 815 confirmed cases and one death from the coronavIR-19 virus in the country.
It said that the number is expected to rise because of the spread in areas with high population density.
“As we continue to see cases increase in areas where we know people are living, we’ll be able to better monitor the virus and we’ll have the best chance to protect people,” said the agency’s director of public health, Dame Elizabeth Denham.
Denham told Fox that coronavs are very hard to detect and that the virus has only been found in two places: the U, UK and Australia.
