Coronavirus epidemic: asymptomatic woman infected five

Chinese postings with English translation


no symptom has been disclosed after infection, the virus mutates quickly.


Gao Fu, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said in an interview on the 28th that the new type of coronavirus shows many differences from previous coronaviruses including SARS. Asymptomatic viruses include influenza and measles. Coronaviruses appear to be infecting people asymptomatically. It is not surprising from a virological perspective, but it is strange comparing with SARS. This makes it difficult to trace the source of infection.

English translation of the Weibo post above:

[Woman came from Wuhan is showing no symptom. Five of her relatives (in another city) have been diagnosed (with coronavirus infection after direct and indirect contact with her)]

Until 24:00 Jan 27th, there have been 11 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in the city of Anyang. Based on the analysis of the government announcements, reporters found that five of the patients turn out to be relatives without traveling to Wuhan. Three of the five people have contacted a woman who came back from Wuhan. They are the father and aunts of this Wuhan woman. But the Wuhan woman has not shown any symptom yet. (Impression News)
