(Natural News) The United States has issued an official travel warning about the “apparent community spread” of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) in at least five different countries outside of China, as well as the island region of Taiwan.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now urging all Americans not to travel to China for the foreseeable future, and to also avoid the nations of Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan, if at all possible, because the virus is spreading rapidly in these areas.
“Community spread means people have been infected with the virus, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected,” the CDC explains on its website. “At this time, the extent of virus spread is not sustained or widespread enough to meet the criteria for a travel notice.”
A level-1 travel advisory has been issued for Japan and Hong Kong, both of which are seeing the number of Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) cases continue to grow at an alarming rate.
In the event that travelers do decide to go to either place, the CDC recommends that they take extra precautions to avoid coming into contact with sick people, as well as to avoid touching their eyes, noses or mouths with unwashed hands.
Most of the Japanese cases of the Wuhan coronavirus involve passengers who were recently released from the Diamond Princess cruise ship that’s currently docked at Yokohama. Several hundred Americans were recently rescued from the vessel and taken back to the United States, while other countries are reportedly doing the same with their people.
We know that two elderly passengers from the ship recently died from the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19), which is why the U.S. and other nations with citizens on board have devising ways to get them off the ship and back to their native lands for quarantine.
“The 87-year-old man who died had bronchial asthma while the 84-year-old woman who perished didn’t have any preexisting conditions,” reports The Epoch Times.
Listen below as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, talks about the problem of shared air on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, and how Natural News tried to warn about this previously, to no avail:
Singapore, Japan, and South Korea are all seeing worrying surges in coronavirus infections
As of right now, Singapore has the second-highest number of Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) cases outside of China, followed by Japan. South Korea is also quickly catching up as well, having reported its first death from coronavirus-induced pneumonia.
While South Korea has had some success using natural oxygen therapy to treat infected patients, which was initially believed to have quelled a potential outbreak there, new cases of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) since that time suggest that the virus is not only not contained but continuing to spread largely undetected.
According to South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix, at least 800 workers at the company are currently in self-isolation, as opposed to quarantine, after a trainee reportedly came into contact with a known coronavirus patient.
Over in Vietnam, little news has come forth about its status after more than 10,000 people were recently put into government quarantine. Vietnam, last they updated the world, said it had 16 confirmed cases of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19).
Taiwan also reported its first death from the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) last Sunday, along with 20 known cases of the disease. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen has objected, however, to the CDC’s claim that community spread is taking place on the island.
