BEIJING: The death toll from the deadly corona virus in China rose to 1,110 on Wednesday and more than 44,200 cases have been reported so far. The Health Commission of Hubei said that it killed 94 more people in Hubei province, where the virus has killed the most people so far.
It said that 1,638 new cases have also been reported and more than 44,200 cases have been confirmed in China so far. It is believed that the virus was spread from the market in Wuhan, capital of Hubei province, where wild animals are sold last year.
On the other hand, WHO Chief Tredos Adonom Gebreyes said on Tuesday that although 99 percent of its cases are in China, it is a big threat to the whole world. He also appealed to all countries to share information about any research done in this regard.
On Tuesday, Chinese authorities sacked two senior health officials from Hubei and tightened restrictions in its capital, Wuhan. There are already millions of people under the ambit of sanctions.
