China reports 2,048 more coronavirus cases, 105 deaths

The doctors first diagnosed her with pneumonia, but confirmation of COVID-19 came after her death.

So far, nearly 9,500 patients with the coronavirus have been treated and discharged from hospitals across China, the country's health authorities said.

Cities in Hubei have stepped up measures to stop the virus's spread.

Villages and cities have been flooded with battalions of uniformed volunteers and political representatives carrying out the biggest social control campaign in the history of China.

American passengers were taken off another cruise liner on Sunday to fly home after being quarantined for two weeks off Japan.

For example, a TCM decoction named "Qingfei Paidutang" has been used in treating 701 confirmed cases in 10 provinces, of which 130 have been cured and discharged, said Li Yu, an official with the National Administration of TCM.

Earlier this month, a cluster of cases in France, Spain and the United Kingdom was traced to a French ski resort, where the infected people had contact with a British man who had just returned from a conference in Singapore in January that led to infections in at least five countries.

The State Department said it made the call to return the infected patients to the United States following consultations with health officials.


The 300 or so People flying on US -govt chartered aircraft back again to the USA will deal with an additional 14-day quarantine at Travis Air Drive Foundation in California and Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. The prime minister, Shinzo Abe, told ministers the government would increase the number of medical facilities that can accept infected people to 800 from the current 726.

The US embassy in Japan said two jets had left Japan en route to the US. "This date is 14 days after the remaining passengers are expected to depart the ship on February 19".

It also raises additional questions for the World Health Organization (WHO), which has previously praised China for its "transparency" and for sounding the alarm early and enabling a global response to the virus.

The offer to leave comes as operator Princess Cruises warned passengers that disembarkation could take several days, beyond the official end of their quarantine period.

"We can not be sure, and if we can not be sure, we have to take precautions", he said.

Cruise ship firm Holland America Line said it was working with governments and health experts to track passengers who disembarked from its Westerdam ship docked in Cambodia after an American woman tested positive for coronavirus in Malaysia. That compares with the 5.7pc growth China would need this year to meet its long-term goal of doubling GDP over the decade to 2020, according to a government economist. "Therefore, guests were potentially at higher risk, for this reason a different quarantine protocol was implemented". And my two-week quarantine is nearly over. "It is disappointing for all of us".

With the virus battering tourism and disrupting global supply chains, experts are fretting about the toll it could take on a fragile global economy.

New scenarios in other nations are increasing far more issue about containment of the virus.
