Tibet details the first confirmed case of coronavirus

Tibet has reported the first confirmed case of novel coronavirus pneumonia, Chinese health authorities said on Thursday. The first case was reported after a 34-year-old man from China’s Hubei province, the epicenter of the virus, traveled to Tibet and complained of sickness. The patient surnamed Zhang is from the city of Suizhou in Central China’s Hubei province.

He came to Lhasa by train from the provincial capital Wuhan on January 24 and was hospitalized on January 25. So far, the majority of the cases in China and abroad are from the province for which Wuhan is the epicenter. The regional center for disease control and prevention diagnosed the patient as a suspected case on Tuesday. Units have been shipped to the CCDC and Prevention for additional tests.

The patient’s vital signs are stable, and close contacts have been put under medical observation, state-run China Daily reported. The death toll in China’s novel coronavirus increased sharply to 170 with 38 more fatalities reported on Wednesday mainly from the worst-affected central Hubei province. Wuhan has been beneath pragmatic lockdown for a few days, with transport halted and civilians reported to stay home due to the extent of the virus.

China’s NHC stated that 7,711 proved cases of pneumonia induced by the novel coronavirus had been promulgated in 31 provincial-level areas. China has ramped up attempts to hold the virus.
