Fourth Death Confirmed From Coronavirus

Chinese authorities have announced a fourth death caused by the new coronavirus strain in Wuhan. Local authorities announced that the victim was an 89-year-old man. The new SARS-like virus has spread all across China and into at least three other countries in Asia with confirmed cases in Japan, South Korea and Thailand as reported by agencies.

“Now we can say it is certain that it is a human-to-human transmission phenomenon,” Dr. Zhong Nanshan, a scientist who is leading a government-appointed expert panel on the outbreak, said in an interview on state-run television on Monday.

The World Health Organization announced Monday that it was convening an emergency meeting on Wednesday “to ascertain whether the outbreak constitutes a public health emergency of international concern, and what recommendations should be made to manage it.”
