coronavirus paris - Fox News medical correspondent Dr. Marc Siegel weighs in on the outbreak, possible travel bans on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.' Fox News medical analyst Dr. Marc Siegel joined Tucker Carlson Tonight Monday to give an update on the coronavirus that originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan and has spread to several other countries, with at least five reported cases in the United States. I’ve been studying contagions for a really long time, and I’ve never seen anything like this, Dr. Siegel said.
coronavirus paris, HOW DANGEROUS IS CORONAVIRUS? Late Monday, the Chinese government said that at least 106 deaths had been attributed to the coronavirus, with more than 4,500 cases confirmed in the country. Earlier Monday, the State Department urged Americans to reconsider traveling to Wuhan and said it had ordered all non-emergency U.S. personnel and their families to leave China. Siegel blamed Chinese authorities for just now beginning to impose quarantines and travel restrictions in and around Wuhan a full year after the virus was first reported, calling their inaction reckless and really, really scary.
coronavirus paris - He also said he has reason to believe that the actual number of cases in China is far greater than the number the local authorities have reported, which could impact how the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) responds to the rapidly spreading contagion. SILICON VALLEY SCRAMBLES TO STOP CORONAVIRUS MISINFORMATION The numbers are suddenly skyrocketing. For months there was word coming out of China that people were getting sick from a strange illness and people were dying, Siegel said. Are they really on all of the death certificates [from] this virus? Do we know people that had this? Or do they think they had the flu?
coronavirus paris - We don’t know if this is more contagious or deadly than the flu. We need to know that. We are studying these five people [in the U.S.] very, very carefully. But that’s what should’ve been done in China from the beginning. And it wasn’t. I am positive that there are thousands and thousands of cases that never came to light here. Siegel praised the CDC, calling them a shining light in the darkness. CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK: US URGES AMERICANS TO 'RECONSIDER' CHINA TRAVEL
