28,000 Confirmed Cases of Wuhan Coronavirus - How To Reduce The Spread Now

[fa icon="calendar"] 2/6/20 2:00 PM / by Safetec

With the number of confirmed cases rising to over 28,000, the outbreak of the Wuhan Coronavirus continues to be a topic of grave concern around the world. In the United States alone, cases have doubled in just one week, going from five to eleven confirmed cases. 

Leaders around the world are taking measures to help reduce the spread of the Wuhan Coronavirus to its native populations. In Hong Kong, officials are receiving pressure to close off all borders but have resisted, sighting this as “discriminatory and not in line with World Health Organization guidelines.” However, Hong Kong has closed off all but three borders to reduce the number of entries from mainland China and is the first country to enact a 14-day quarantine for individuals arriving from the mainland. Some countries have gone as far as temporarily denying entry to any individual that has traveled to China in the last two weeks. 

Unites States citizens are being airlifted out of China for the second time since the start of the outbreak. Upon arrival, the passengers are closely monitored at a secure military base to ensure they have not been exposed to the Wuhan Coronavirus. As the situation continues to evolve, government officials continue to work with personnel abroad to bring this outbreak to an end. 

With the death toll over 560 people, it is crucial now more than ever to ensure you are equipped with the necessary items, as well as taking the appropriate preventative measures. Safetec of America offers a variety of products to help combat the spread of the Wuhan Coronavirus.
