Death toll from Wuhan’s Coronavirus surpasses SARS pandemic in 2002-2003

Death toll from mainland China caused by the Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has surpassed the number of fatalities in the 2002-2003 SARS pandemic , as authorities enforce ever-stricter desperate measures to curb the further spread with millions of Chinese gradually returning to work after the extended Lunar New Year holiday.

As of 0830 hours on Sunday (9 Feb), the number of deaths reported in China climbed to 812, surpassing the 774 recorded worldwide during the 2002-2003 SARS pandemic.

A 60-year-old American citizen was among the new fatalities in Wuhan, being the first foreigner in China to die from the Coronavirus infection. A Japanese citizen who was a suspected case in Wuhan also died.

In a possibly hopeful sign, the 2019-nCoV virus that is of the same family of Coronavirus as SARS, has proven far less deadly, with a mortality rate of around 2-3%, Chinese authorities said. In comparison, SARS killed 9.6% of those who caught it, according to the World Health Organization.

Meanwhile, Singapore has registered another 7 confirmed cases, bringing the total to 40, second placed to Japan which has 89.

Of the 7 new cases, 2 of the people may have been infected via community spread as they have never been to China or have any contacts or links with those already confirmed infected.

Among the 40 confirmed cases, 4 are reportedly in critical condition, with 1 requiring additional oxygen support.

  • New Government does better:

    if New Government were in charge, and not pap, there is no such thing as orange or yellow. green only.

    1, as soon as news of virus, same evening, total ban on anyone from affected country to enter Singapore. complete ban, and immediate ban. S$m means nothing to New Government. it is safety of citizens.

    2, because New Government does not believe in ownself enriching ownself with S$m GDP growth bonus, as soon as New Government forms, the 3.9m aliens in Singapore, 90% of these aliens are immediately removed. New Government knows danger of crowding and how deadly such crowding can be in a virus spread situation.

    3, New Government knows importance of masks. and requires everyone, kenna or not kenna, to wear mask. this is intelligence of a high order. only humans without S$m greed have it. and we salute New Government. and thank God for such intelligent humans governing Singapore.

    4, in the mean time, every morning, first thing after waking up, is to curse every pap Lj and every pap Cb to kenna the Wuhan virus. these are S$m money faced evil humans. not worth having them anywhere in the world, especially in once great Singapore. moreover, as soon as they kenna, it shall tell them why S$m does not matter when kenna. because they lied to sheep no need to wear mask until kenna which is the worst thing any government can do to its citizens.

  • don't be sheep:

    pap says don’t wear mask unless kenna.

    pap says Orange still can move about as usual.

    business owners says wher got problem since pap says everything is ok.

    WE say, unless necessary, stop going to crowded places because nobody knows who in the crowded already kenna or not kenna.

    business owners say valentine day must dinner at their place for lovers. WE say true love means true care and concern for each other and so no need to eat at crowded places to potentially kenna. because wear mask cannot eat. can eat means no mask which means can kenna.

    for next 3 weeks, stay at home, save money by cooking onwself eat ownself meals. this ensures 100% safe and only pap folks who don’t wear mask kenna. if they kenna, well and good. if they don’t kenna, continue to curse them day and night until they kenna.

    as long as we are safe and our loved ones are safe what worry about pap S$m folks kenna. it is their karma for lying.

  • Harder Truths:

    I hope the majority of $G citizens are happy giving their island to a clown circus and foreign nationals of all sorts.

    Hope many of you 70% are infected and suffer badly. Very badly. Remember this is not a big deal for the pappies – any local who kenna whack is easily replaced by FT.

    This is karma for being a**holes. I am glad that finally retribution is COMING TO YOU.

  • Geylang no wear condom?:

    Guys , you Singaporeans smart Alex.
    So I ask you hor, given your leaders say don’t wear mask if not sick,
    Do you wear mask only when you get Corona?

    By the same token, is it that we should go geylang without wearing condom and wear it once we catch HIV ?

    Many patients of other chronic diseases like diabetes,cancer or even simple orthooaedic surgery patients staying in hospitals DIED FROM PNEUMONIA and thats in normal times?

    What more this strain of virus that directly causes pneumonia?

    PREVENTIVE MEDICINE MUST BE APPLIED HERE N NOW .
    Stop FTs coming from PRC from entering this OVER-CROWDED SINFUL CITY before more INNOCENT sgs suffer undairly especially thosd made jobless by Daft FT POLICY n have to foot their own MEDICAL BILL$ PLUS G$T?!!!

  • Sonething to think about:

    Face masks are not effective esp coming from china.. saw a news clip the production and packing of masks..
    The production operaters and packers were not wearing gloves or masks ..handling the masks with bare hands..no head caps or face madk on either.
    The millions of masks coming from such places are already infected thro incorrect handling.. tho not necc the virus germs.
    Whereas i saw another clip in japan and thailand, the correct hygenic measures were followed..
    Im not anti china or prc people …
    ..just stating the facts.
    Now im wondering where the free masks we got from gov came from.

  • Double Jeopardy:

    When SARS hit in 2002-2003 we didn’t have so many PRCs in SG. This time is different. SG has hundreds of thousands from China – new citizens, PRs, work-permit holders. By bringing in millions of foreigners to the country puts a strain on the country’s emergency resources in a global pandemic. It means there is less to go around for our own people. I don’t remember there was rationing of face masks during SARS (correct me if I am wrong). This Wuhan coronavirus is not expected to go away until May. Meanwhile the people will be exposed without wearing a mask, and more from China are expected to return from their holiday breaks.
