The Coronavirus Is Now Officially A Global Emergency. Read Below. – – The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a public-health emergency of international concern Thursday as the first person-to-person transmission of the virus was reported in the U.S. – – The WHO designation, pointing to an increase in the number of cases, indicates that international public-health authorities now consider the respiratory virus a significant threat beyond China, where it originated last month. The move could further heighten the global response to the outbreak. – – The agency made the declaration after a meeting of its emergency committee, which declined to do so last week. Since then, China, other governments and multinational businesses have taken emergency steps to limit the virus’s spread, including halting some travel to China. – – In the U.S., a sixth person tested positive for the infection in the first case of human-to-human transmission. The patient is the husband of a Chicago woman infected with the virus whose case was reported last week. She had recently traveled to Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the coronavirus first emerged last month. ————————————————————————————Follow @_survival_and_preparedness_ for more!! ———————————————————————————||Community: @_daily_survival_ @_survival_enthusiast_101 @edctestonline @_survival_city_ @dailybushcraft @deathsurvival || (DM for Partnership) ——————————————————————————— #survive #survival #bushcraft  #camping #backpacking  #hunting #knife  #firstaidkit #zombieapocalypse #bugoutbag #thewalkingdead #fishing  #firstaid  #shtf #urbansurvival #outdoors #hiking #tactical #gear #doomsday #everydaycarry #prepared #knowledge #china #wilderness #wuhan #prepper #virus #military #coronavirus

Dr Thanikasalam Veni of Rathna Siddha Hospital in Chennai has 25-year of vast experience in field Siddha and Ayurvedic medicines.

Speaking to ANI, he said: “We have formulated a medicine from an extract of herbs. It is very effective to cure any type of viral fever. Coronavirus has no medicine. In China’s Wuhan where Coronavirus has claimed over 50 lives, experts have no idea how to cure the disease. Our herbal extract medicine is used to treat dengue, multi-organ fever and acute liver fever.”

“We want to tell the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Chinese government that our medicine is very effective in treating multi-organ failure in corona fever condition,” he said.

The Siddha doctor claimed that the medicine formulated by him along with his team treats infections caused by the virus within 24 hours to 40 hours.

When we treated the dengue virus with our medicine, many patients with reduced platelets count, acute liver failure, immunity deficiency and low white blood cell (WBC) were cured within 24-40 hours,” said Veni.

LA PRIMA IMMAGINE DEL NUOVO CORONAVIRUS 2019-nCoV Il centro cinese per i dati microbiologici (Nmdc) e l’Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità (Oms) hanno pubblicato le prime immagini del nuovo coronavirus 2019-nCoV. Sono state rilevate mediante un microscopio elettronico e mostrano le particelle del nuovo virus isolate da un paziente. La raccomandazione dell’Oms per ridurre la trasmissione del virus include l’igiene delle mani (lavarsele spesso con detergenti a base di alcool o acqua e sapone) e pratiche alimentari sicure. Inoltre è raccomandato, quando si tossisce o si starnutisce, di coprire la bocca e il naso con l’interno dell’avambraccio (o un fazzoletto) e di evitare il consumo di prodotti animali crudi o poco cotti, facendo particolare attenzione a latte, carne cruda e organi animali: in questo caso maneggiarli con cura per evitare la contaminazione incrociata, come da buone pratiche alimentari.

“In coronavirus too I am confident our medicine will be very effective,” he added.

The doctor said he is willing to help the state and the central government as well as China if required.

“If the Centre and state government require then I am ready with medicine. Also, if China wants my contribution I am ready to fly immediately to Wuhan with my medicine which can cure Coronavirus,” he said.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Health Minister C Vijayabaskar said that the state is “well prepared and is taking all precautionary and preventive steps” to tackle any possible infections.

“So far, no case has been identified in the state as well as the country. I appeal to the public to not panic,” he said.

The virus, which has no effective vaccine, was reported on January 16 in Japan, the first case outside China and its territories.

Coronaviruses (nCoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

Un hombre mayor sufrió un colapso y falleció este jueves en la calle, cerca de un hospital de Wuhan (China). En la imagen, un agente vestido con un traje de protección comprueba el estado del hombre que murió sobre la acera. Reporteros de la agencia AFP vieron el cuerpo sobre el suelo poco antes de que llegara una ambulancia con personal sanitario y agentes de policía, todos embutidos en trajes de protección. Pese a que el fallecido no sufría el coronavirus, nadie se atrevió a acercarse al cuerpo por miedo a que fuera un afectado por esta enfermedad. La Organización Mundial de la Salud ha declarado la emergencia internacional, después de que la escalada de muertes por el coronavirus haya superado los 200, con cerca de 10.000 afectados.
