Humanity Road Releases Special Report on Novel Coronavirus
By: Humanity Road
The report includes outbreak information for all 25 countries currently reporting confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV. This Novel Coronavirus was first detected in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, and spread quickly across the surrounding Hubei Province to other portions of China before appearing in other nations. Of the more than 24,500 confirmed cases worldwide, more than 13,000 have occurred in Hubei Province, according to the World Health Organization. As of Feb. 5, only 191 cases are confirmed outside of China, but the number grows daily.
"Given the global reach of the virus and its implications for world health, we believe it's important for everyone to begin paying attention to this situation before it goes from bad to worse," said Christine Thompson, president of Humanity Road. "One of our organization's key missions is to educate the public before a disaster strikes, and the ongoing spread of Novel Coronavirus outside of China is a reminder that health conditions can change very quickly anywhere in the world."
The special report includes health agency reports by country, current case counts, known quarantine information, and other resources. You can access it online at www.humanityroad.org,
"Humanity Road's comprehensive report on the 2019-novel coronavirus outbreak will serve as a critical resource for health preparedness efforts in the U.S. and around the globe," said Nicolette Louissaint, PhD, executive director of Healthcare Ready, a national preparedness and response nonprofit organization. "As we actively monitor the scope and potential impact of this emerging infectious disease outbreak, Healthcare Ready is pleased to partner with Humanity Road and provide necessary information to help safeguard the health and well being of citizens worldwide. As we continue to learn more about this virus, and the relative threat it poses to different communities, comprehensive resources such as this are invaluable. Organizations like Humanity Road will be critical in sharing information, especially across social media — vital for stopping this outbreak."
