By March 15, only 16 new cases of Coronavirus infection were recorded in the Chinese province of Hubei.
In mainland China, where the outbreak of a new coronavirus began, most patients with a positive result for the virus recovered.
During a media briefing at the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 9, Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhan Ghebraysus stated that of the 80,000 reported cases in China, more than 70% recovered and were discharged.
However, despite a high recovery rate, many patients who recovered had decreased lung function. Despite the fact that the number of confirmed cases in China is decreasing, the virus was still classified as a pandemic, but by no means to instill fear and panic.
Many countries reacted correctly – strict prohibitions and restrictions on entry / exit, freedom of movement and operation were introduced.
All of Europe was in isolation, the United States also restricted entry, especially from European countries, all social events and meetings were canceled.
Recall that from today additional measures to prevent coronavirus in Cyprus come into force .
