New Coronavirus Updates

By Timothy Gamble 

2-21-2020 10:00 PM - There is a new batch of coronavirus updates to report. There are now 35 confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States, most of them contracting the virus overseas. Israel and Lebanon reported their first cases today. Italy put ten towns on voluntary lockdown, after 15 new cases were confirmed today. The virus is now in 32 countries, including China.

Iran reported two new deaths today (rumors of nine Iranian deaths today appear false at this time), making four deaths in Iran, so far.

Worldwide, there are 77,659 confirmed cases* of the Wuhan coronavirus, officially named Covid 19, with 2,360 deaths.*

Data sources: Johns Hopkins CSSEWHO, CDC, ECDC, NHC, and DXY.

* China is severly under-reporting the true extent of the outbreak, according to most experts. Information leaking out of China indicates the real numbers of cases and deaths are likely 4X-5X the "official" numbers.
