BREAKING: China Fights Wuhan Coronavirus Against the Arrival of Chinese New Year

Barely one month since its outbreak, the new Wuhan coronavirus has already caused 644 confirmed infected patients, 422 suspicious cases, and 18 deaths in China. However, with the arrival of the Chinese New Year and all the inevitable celebration gatherings, these numbers will just get higher day by day.

To avoid further expansion of the epidemic, finally, Wuhan has been officially locked down. All buses, metros, trains and planes have been stopped pending further notice. Across China, many sites have been closed and lots of popular celebration activities have been canceled. In Beijing, the Forbidden City will stop receiving visitors from January 25, the first day of the year in Chinese New Year 2020. The premier of several long-expected movies has also been rescheduled.

Deteriorating Doctor-Patient Relationship in China is Causing Imminent Shortages

Just 20 days into 2020, the coronavirus from Wuhan has already infected 319 people in China and has reached three countries outside China. It reminds everybody of the SARS outbreak in 2003, which caused 774 deaths in over 30 countries. Doctors and nurses are trying their best to treat the patients, whose expenses will be covered by the Chinese government. It is at times like this when you realize how important the doctors and nurses are. However, in China, a worsening relationship between the doctors/nurses and the patients is seeding a serious social problem. Over the past month, six cases have been reported where the patients beat up or even murder their life savers.
