BEIJING (Reuters) – The novel coronavirus that has killed more than 1,700 people in China is “preventable and treatable”, an official from the country’s National Health Commission said on Monday.
Guo Yanhong, a hospital administration supervisor at the commission, made the remarks at a daily press conference, in which she also said the percentage of infected patients in virus epicenter Wuhan who are critically ill had dropped to 18% now from 38% at the beginning of the outbreak.
