Post by holley » Mon Jan 20, 2020 9:15 pm

A SARS-like virus that has spread across China and reached three other Asian nations is contagious between humans, a government expert said Monday, and the World Health Organization announced that a key emergency committee would meet this week to discuss the infections.

Keeping tabs

China's President Xi Jinping says that the virus must be "resolutely contained", in his first public comments on the outbreak.
Human-to-human transmission is "affirmative", a top Chinese expert on infectious diseases Zhong Nanshan tells state broadcaster CCTV.

Wuhan

Post by holley » Fri Jan 24, 2020 8:27 pm

The Wuhan coronavirus outbreak is testing China's governance system, after the criticism Beijing received in 2003 over SARS: China’s initial response has “underlined one of the ongoing problems with the authoritarian strictures of the party-state, which places a premium on the control of information in the name of maintaining stability,” writes Richard McGregor of the Lowy Institute. “[L]ower-level officials have no incentive to report problems until Beijing allows them to do so. Under the rule of Xi Jinping, such restrictions have only grown tighter.”

But it’s also a reminder that the world—not just China—is unprepared, warns Bloomberg’s Adam Minter. Diseases will only spread faster thanks to “population growth, urbanization, greater interactions between humans and wild animals, and climate change,” Minter writes, and developing countries in particular aren’t ready. According to a 2019 Global Health Security Index released by Johns Hopkins and the Nuclear Threat Initiative, “19% of countries received top marks for detection and reporting, fewer than 7% got top marks for their ability to prevent the release or emergence of pathogens, and fewer than 5% qualified for the top tier of countries capable of rapid response to the spread of an epidemic,” Minter points out.

The “global community has largely fallen into an expensive cycle of ‘panic and neglect’” over outbreaks, Minter writes; it would do well to organize more funding for vulnerable places.” -zakaria
