To whom Corona Virus Can Be More Dangerous?
Chinese scientists have uncovered new information in the largest study ever conducted on more than 44,000 patients with the new Coronavirus Covd 19.
It is thought that as a result of this new coronavirus so far 1868 people have been killed and more than 72 thousand have been infected.
The director-general of the World Health Organization, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, described the results of the Chinese authorities' research, saying that the severity of the disease was moderate in 4 out of every 5 patients.
"It appears that the Novel Coronavirus is not as dead as other Coronaviruses, including SARS and MERS, now the picture of the outbreak has started to become clear," he said.
Data from 44,000 cases in China's province were analyzed during this research and the Director-General of the World Health Organization said, "More than 80% of patients have moderate to severe disease and will recover, 14% of cases severity." There are more who suffer from pneumonia and difficulty breathing while 5% of cases are serious, in which the respiratory and various organs are left to work while 2% proved fatal, the higher the age, the higher the risk of death. '.
Children are not being affected by the virus as adults, he said, and further research is needed as to why this is so.
He said that there are some gaps to understand from the results, but international experts from the World Organization are expected to work to fill them.
The director-general of the WHO said that the number of new cases in China is decreasing 'this trend has to be taken very carefully as it may change.'
He said the WTO is continuing to work day and night to help countries where the Coronavirus could potentially be reached, testing kits and protective devices were sent, ensuring that the supply is tightened with the companies. And medical workers are being trained.

A new report from Chinese authorities said the Coronavirus mortality rate in Hubei Province is 2.9 percent, while the rest is 0.4 percent, compared to 2.3 percent of the total patients.
The research published in the Chinese Journal of Epidemiology reviewed more than 44,000 certified cases of coronavirus from December 8, 2019, to February 11.
The study found that mortality rates are higher in people over 80 years of age.
The rate is 2.8 percent in men and 1.7 percent in women, while the study also determined that in some patients the virus is at higher risk of death.
According to the results, the risk of death is higher in people with coronary artery disease, followed by diabetes, respiratory diseases and hypertension.
