Coronavirus outbreak panic spreads globally

The World Health Organization has now classified the risk of coronavirus spreading globally as “very high.” Over a dozen cases have now been confirmed in the U.S. as countries like New Zealand, Nigeria, and Belarus have become the latest countries to report new cases. South Korea has seen the largest single-day surge with over 800 new cases, making their 3,100 infections the largest outbreak outside of China. Michael George and Charlie D’Agata report on how the U.S. and the rest of the world are handling the growing threat.

    Almost everyone in the US has direct connection to the Chinese. Walmart, Target, Dollar Stores, etc.

  2. Salvatore Carpino says:

    I tend to think that some of these people may have contacted the virus through the mail, just a thought

      Populeux Music I just received a chinese Creality 3D printer last week. Took me a while to finally open it, although it’s likely been at a German warehouse for quite a while (the Chinese trick our toll and tax system and make the field even less equal for our own work market). Sino-nazis.

    • Sho Jo says:

      That’s a good point. Also during these times don’t use cash since it’s in contact with so many people.

    • Kevin Xiao says:

      It’s reasonable

    Meanwhile South Korea tested thousands of ppl in a few days… Hmmmm

    • banana apple says:

      @Karlie Sun I don’t think China acted actively. I mean, they did it but it was too late. If they had listened to what Li Wen Liang said, the situation wouldn’t be this worse. It’s time for China to apologize to other country, not the time to compliment themselves.

  4. YU HE says:

    if you do not test anyone, then you do not report new cases.

      And if u go around testing random people it can violate the bill of rights

    • Minister Gail, Holy Ghost Coach says: 60+ ENTIRE NURSING HOME IN Washington State & Neb, Mass 371 affected, Tx 15 infected, Calif. 545 affected/contaminated. Mexico 6,500. Situation Update No.11. 3/1/20. Governor of Washington declared a state of emergency Saturday after a man died there of COVID-19, the first such reported death in USA. More than 50 people in a nursing facility are sick
      and being tested for the virus.Gov. Jay Inslee directed state agencies to use
      “all resources necessary” to prepare for and respond to the coronavirus outbreak. The declaration also allows the use of the Washington National Guard, if necessary. “We will continue to work toward a day where no one dies from this virus,” the governor vowed. Health officials in California, Oregon and Washington state are worried about the novel coronavirus
      spreading through West Coast communities because a growing number of people are
      being infected despite not having visited an area where there was an outbreak,
      nor apparently been in contact with anyone who had. The man who died was in his
      50s, had underlying health conditions and no history of travel or contact with
      a known COVID-19 case, health officials in Washington state said at a news
      conference. A spokesperson for EvergreenHealth Medical Center, Kayse Dahl, said
      the person died in the facility in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland.Dr. Frank
      Riedo, medical director of Infection Control at Evergreen, said local hospitals
      are seeing people with severe coronavirus symptoms but it’s probable that there
      are more cases in the community.”This is the tip of the iceberg,” he
      said. [Without testing kits available, the diagnosis of COVID in USA is being
      kept hidden from the USA public, by the WHITEHOUSE GOV.]. The health officials
      reported two cases of COVID-19 virus connected to a long-term care facility in
      the same suburb, Life Care Center of Kirkland. One is a Life Care worker, a
      woman in her 40s who is in satisfactory condition at a hospital, and the other
      is a woman in her 70s and a resident at Life Care who is hospitalized in
      serious condition. Neither had traveled abroad.”In addition, over 50
      individuals associated with Life Care are reportedly ill with respiratory
      symptoms or hospitalized with pneumonia or other respiratory conditions of
      unknown cause and are being tested for COVID-19,” Seattle and King County
      officials said. “Additional positive cases are expected.”Amy Reynolds
      of the Washington state health department said in a brief telephone interview:
      “We are dealing with an emergency evolving situation.”A growing
      number of cases in California, Washington state and Oregon are confounding
      authorities because the infected people hadn’t recently traveled overseas or
      had any known close contact with a traveler or an infected person.The U.S. has
      about 60 confirmed cases. Worldwide, the number of people sickened by the virus
      hovered Friday around 83,000, and there were more than 2,800 deaths, most of
      them in China.

      Mass, Texas & Calif. Click each date under SITUATION tab to see other USA
      areas, not given by POTUS /CDC. There are inadequate number of testing kits, and ones used to test for the COVID virus failed by CDC due to Trump laid off 1,600 scientists in 2018. NY is
      creating newer testing kits in their own health dept. Feb. 8:Another plane carrying people evacuated from the virus zone in China landed Friday at a Marine Corps base just outside San Diego.The U.S. government-chartered jet landed at midmorning at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.No information about the number of people aboard was released. A briefing was scheduled for late afternoon.Those aboard are among hundreds of Americans who have been evacuated due to the viral outbreak centred in the Wuhan region of China.In addition to a previous flight to Miramar, other evacuation flights to California have brought people to March Air Reserve Base in Southern California and Travis Air Force Base between San Francisco and Sacramento.All evacuees are being quarantined for 14 days and monitored for any signs of illness. Trump allowed these planes into USA with infected passengers among the non-infected and not enough testing kits for all to check. People released back into USA population without being tested.

    Sometimes going through the comments is more entertaining and more informative than watching an entire video.

    Responding quickly?!?! A nurse in CA says the hospital staff doesn’t have enough masks & supplies. Yeah America is Ready?!?! (Right)

    wtf does “Italy helped to spread it” mean?!
    Use your brain, we did what everyone else has done.

    • JoleFin says:

      Logan Sells mhah 😅 Fox is the only news we outside of the liberal US bubble could trust. Especially when the news has anything to do with anything even partially political.

    • JoleFin says:

      Marcia Baxter exactly. If any people are to be blamed, it’s the communist party of China who gave the world this new gift of theirs. The ”Italy did this that” rhetoric is just part of the deconstructionist agenda.

    The summer Olympics will be cancelled for sure !

    • stephen gill says:

      Will the euro 2020 football be cancelled?? All major sports?

    • fera• says:

      Mark Gitschel so you’re telling me that one of the biggest events in the world are gonna be cancelled because the Chinese won’t stop eating bats? I’d prefer if the Chinese aren’t allowed to take part in the Olympics and anyone that has the Coronavirus

    • African_Child _Labour_Worker says:

      fera• “Eating bats”

    • King Of The Views says:

      Good, the Chinese Team can go INFECT each other in peace.

    • Lady B says:

      @Free World me too

    • Lady B says:

      @Erik um, not quite. Socialized healthcare is bad though. The Government picks who lives and dies, what services will be provided and for whom, and we wouldn’t even be able to pay out of pocket for treatments. It is not an ideal situation.

    • Hitogokochi says:

      Erik, it’ll make you a bunch of communists who need a good bombing to sort you out. Actually, British health care is partially privatized and is being underfunded and run into the ground. There are just 28 beds nationwide to deal with serious/critical coronavirus cases. I’m gonna love it if it wreaks havoc in the UK – what the British deserve for voting the same party back into power that, for 10 years, has ruined so many people’s lives.

    No traveling to Rome 🤔, so what’s Charlie doing there without a mask.

    • Randy Ralls says:

      @Lisa M. is he there?

    • Vnikk Gaming says:

      Masks are effective

    • Lilith Eden says:

      MC 0_0 indeed that’s what the health ministry is telling us in Europe. Those flimsy operating masks you see people wear are just costing you money and don’t help in preventing the disease. The better ones are for the people who already have been contaminated so the have less risk of spreading it. Anyway the “normal” flue is far more contagious and deadly. This fear-mongering is unbelievable. The only ones who profit from this are the vendors of said masks.

    • MC 0_0 says:

      ​@Lilith Eden 100%, I also live in London but travel to the States a lot as the company I work for are based in San Fran. However last week they have now cancelled all International travel for employees. Thats sensible, flight prevention, not these stupid masks !!

  13. swordmasterqueen says:

    Remember when the world health organization said the spread would be very low, just to show you can’t trust anything they say

  14. Do What Makes You Happy says:

    I feel like Italy is one of few countries being honest about their numbers.

    • Pink Freud says:

      @Kamaal Countries are held accountable for failure to report through numbers, or suspicions of same. There are repercussions if they are believed to be lying. The only country in this scenario who is lying via not testing, is America. Unfortunately because of size and population ratios, they will get away with their lies for a lot longer than most. But it is blatantly obvious they are the single worst offender – in league with China in December-early January (only).

      The rest of us should be immediately blocking all flights from America.

    • FCN_ Art says:

      Exactly,my country is probably infected too(we have at last 5 flights a day from Italy so imagine) and yet there is “No Infected” lol ok either we have the toughest immune system on earth or our state can’t even run tests decently or don’t tell the people about it

  15. E E says:

    “We are urging American’s not to travel to Italy… now to Charlie our correspondent in Italy”

    Poor guy.

      ​@Sage The Assassin -Super Gamer Woah. How is that possible? I get that our country is not the greatest in healthcare but the price is too different.
      For context, the ambulance here cost around 40 USD. And for admitting a patient, around 60 USD per night.

      Sage The Assassin -Super Gamer: Wow! That’s insane!!!

      @Sage The Assassin -Super Gamer don’t believe half the s*** people write on here this lady probably has Medicaid or Medicare which is paid in full through the government..

    That’s horrifying.

      You have some unique exclusive data I suppose. Fuzzy mathematics 🧮
