Multiple American citizens dies of the Coronavirus in Wuhan China.
There has been a record of Eighty Six more deaths increasing it from the death toll of 70.
In Wuhan, China this appears to be the first American death recorded overseas in the city of China.
A United States citizen has died from the new coronavirus in Wuhan, China, in what appeared to be the first death of an American from the outbreak.
Few details about the American, who died on Thursday, were immediately available.
The person was around 60 years old and died at Jinyintan Hospital in Wuhan, according to the United States Embassy in Beijing.
Two people familiar with the matter said the person was a woman and had underlying health conditions.
“We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss,” said a spokesman for the embassy.
“Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we have no further comment.”
A 60 year old Japanese man was said to have also kicked the bucket in what appears to be a case of the coronarvirus according to the Japanese Foreign Ministry.
This just took place 17mins ago hours after Dr Li Weinliang gave up the ghost in the same Wuhan hospital.
Now the coronavirus is dealing Hong Kong, Asia’s financial capital, another devastating blow. Airlines are cutting service.
Schools are closed. Panicked residents are hoarding rice, face masks and — in the latest run — toilet paper.
In the air is a new emotion for a city where the glimmering skyline once seemed to promise riches and opportunity: fear.
“We don’t know when it will end or how much worse it will get,” said Amber Suen, a flight attendant with Cathay Pacific, the beleaguered Hong Kong airline that on Wednesday asked its 27,000 employees to take three-week unpaid furloughs to save money.
The new coronavirus, which has killed hundreds and sickened thousands in mainland China, has been much less prevalent in Hong Kong.
One person has died and at least 25 have been infected, mostly while traveling in the mainland. Its hospitals are respected around the world.
Death Toll Rises In China and Infections are Over 100,000
The death toll and the number of infections have grown again, according to official data released early Saturday.
Across China, 86 new deaths and 3,399 new cases emerged in the previous 24 hours, the national health authorities said.
The new figures brought the total number of deaths in China to at least 50,500.
And the total number of confirmed cases rose to 99,546.
Most of the newly reported deaths, 81, occurred in Hubei Province, the heart of the outbreak.
Many doctors believe that deaths and infections in China are undercounted because hospitals and laboratories are under severe strain to test for the virus.
