The first death from a coronavirus in the Philippines
Chinese coronavirus on February 2, 2020 claimed the lives of 305 people, which means that there were four dozen more victims of the disease per day. But much more alarming is the news from the Philippines. The first death from a coronavirus outside of China is recorded here. A 44-year-old man from Wuhan has died, according to the Philippine branch of the World Health Organization on Twitter.
Meanwhile, in China, 14,380 people were recognized as ill. In the remaining 23 countries where the virus has spread, about 130 people are monitored. While scientists in the world are struggling to create a vaccine, 328 have been cured by traditional methods that are used for such diseases.
Those in need will be quarantined for 14 days. Exactly as much, according to recent scientists, the incubation period of the coronavirus lasts.
Recall that the whole world learned about a new disease in mid-January, when the PRC authorities quarantined the multi-million city of Wuhan. It was there that the first cases of the disease were recorded.
