Just remember, this is how we got the dossier too. One news outlet picked it up and everyone else ran with it assuming it had been verified because of the first source.
The World Health Organization says it will hold its second emergency meeting on Thursday to assess whether the coronavirus outbreak constitutes an international health emergency.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, "The continued increase in cases and evidence of human-to-human transmission outside China is deeply concerning. Although the numbers outside China are still relatively small, they hold the potential for a much larger outbreak."
The UN health agency held its first emergency meeting a week ago. It concluded it was too early to declare an international health emergency. At that point in the outbreak, human-to-human transmission had been discovered only in China.
At 04:00 on January 29, 31 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps reported 1737 new confirmed cases (the first confirmed case in Tibet), 131 new severe cases, and 38 new deaths. (37 cases in Hubei and 1 in Sichuan), 21 new cases were cured and discharged, and 4148 suspected cases were added.
As of 24:00 on January 29, the National Health and Health Commission has received a cumulative report of 7711 confirmed cases, 31 cases of severe cases, 170 death cases, and a total of 170 patients who have been cured and discharged. There were 124 cases with 12,167 suspected cases.
At present, 88,693 close contacts have been tracked. Of the 2,364 people who were released from medical observation on the same day, a total of 81,947 people are receiving medical observation.
A total of 25 confirmed cases were reported in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan: 10 in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, 7 in the Macao Special Administrative Region, and 8 in Taiwan.
