deployment explosion of coronavirus in Wuhan, China, driven by people whose disease had not been diagnosed ,, show that people with symptoms so mild that they may not know they are sick unwittingly spread of the disease in China, and finally around the world.
Jeffrey Shaman, an infectious-disease at Columbia University who co-authored the study, estimate that the actual number of infections worldwide is greater than what has been reported. Given that there were 169,000 confirmed cases in more than 150 countries, he said, more than 1 million people can be infected with the new coronavirus globally.
The prevalence of “stealth transmission,” Shaman said, underscores the need for social distance. When even a healthy-seeming person can transmit the virus, the safest thing to do is to stay away.
Shaman study, published Monday in the journal Science, the model of the spread of disease at his home in Wuhan based on epidemiological studies and cell phone data.
at the beginning of the epidemic, it was pointed out, there are six people with infections that are undocumented for every confirmed case of the disease. These cases are about half as diagnosed contagious, but because there are so many of them, they were behind at least two-thirds of documented infections, the researchers said.
After China imposed a travel ban and boost testing on Jan. 23, the ratio flips documented for undocumented cases, Shaman said that about 60 percent of people who carryvirus was diagnosed. The spread of the virus in mainland China peaked a few weeks later. Now the number of new cases reported each day dropped from thousands to tens.
“A radical improvement in the identification and isolation of infection while undocumented would be needed to fully control” the new coronavirus, the study said.

twenty-two guests and 21 crew members are in isolation, after showing influenza-like symptoms, Fred Olsen said in a statement Monday. The ship carried a total of 682 passengers and 381 crew members.
MS Braemar was docked in the Bahamas, where he marked, since Saturday, but the Caribbean countries and other local governments have refused to let passengers leave.
“This decision was based on consideration for the protection of health and safety of the Bahamian people and residents of the Bahamas,” the Bahamas Ministry of Transport said in a statement.
After the passengers arriving in Cuba, they would “immediately and safely [be] flown back to England,” Rodríguez said Monday.

Tedros Adhanom GHE breyesus recognize the rapid escalation of social-distancing measures and the cancellation of large gatherings but said the global effort is still lacking.
“We have not seen quite urgent escalation in testing, isolation and contact tracing, which is the backbone of the response,” he said at a press conference.
Tedros noted that social distancing, hand washing and coughing into the elbow was a tactic to help the deployment of combat but noted that the measures are not in themselves sufficient to extinguish a pandemic. He urged countries to improve their methods of testing and isolation to really make a difference.
“As I always say, countries need to take a more comprehensive approach,” he said, stressing the need to break the chain of transmission. “You can not fight fire blindfolded, and we can not stop this pandemic if we do not know who is infected.”
Tedros said the WHO is concerned about the low income countries and regions with high HIV prevalence or malnourished children, and he warned against hoarding goods.
“This is a defining global health crisis of our time,” he said. “The days, weeks and months ahead will be a test of our resolve, our belief in the science test and a test of solidarity.”
A lot of online tools hyped of sister company Google to find and test coronavirus bookings go live Sunday night, after about scope and the question of how much it can really help as local officials, state and federal scramble to increase testing in the United States.
to get started, available only to people who live in San Mateo County or Santa Clara County, both in the San Francisco Bay area. This site says only US citizens 18 and older who speak English can find coronavirus testing through this service. (. More than 50 percent of Santa Clara County residents speak a language other than English at home, according to the last census)
The process begins with a yes-no question: Do you experience severe symptoms? If not, it will ask about the age and location before revealing that you need to log in with a Google account to see if you qualify for in-person testing.
Indeed, the site will not make promises to people who experience severe symptoms – it recommends anyone with shortness of breath, fever or other “about the symptoms” to seek medical treatment instead. The idea is to take some of the pressure on hospitals and health departments to steer people with noncritical problems directly to the testing site.
If you’re good enough to get a test and are willing to login with Google account, you must sign an authorization form and answered questions before being added to the queue. The company said all appointments require a callback to schedule an appointment, and if the full schedule for the day, the user may get a call the next day.
On Monday morning, the site did not allow anyone to log on and try to book an appointment and show the page that says, “Sorry, we can not schedule more appointments at this time.”
“in the first few days of this trial, we hope that the availability of appointments will be limited because we stand operation and testing capacity will be increased in the future,” Lo said in a statement.

Airlines should arrange to transport their crew between the airport and hotel “private road transport vessel which has been cleaned beforehand,” said the guidance. “Advise your crew to avoid public transportation except for emergencies.”
It said the company should also ensure that hotel rooms are cleaned. If the room service or delivery is not an option, they have to eat at the hotel, the guidance says, or, if that is not possible, eat somewhere close and stay six feet from other people.
The crew must immediately inform their flight if they have a fever, cough or shortness of breath while working flights, the guidance says, and airlines must notify the CDC. The employee did not work again until they are cleared by public health officials and the work, he said.
Workers who looked healthy but had “exposure to high risk” for the virus, including the time spent with someone sick or caring for someone with a confirmed case of the virus, “may also need to be excluded from the job.” < p> The flight, guidance says, ‘can choose to exceed these recommendations based on their own policies.’
as spread coronavirus global, South Korea has emerged as one of the models for rapid testing and response to outbreaks. < / p>
Although the country has one of the highest infection rates, more than 8,000 cases on Monday, also has one of the highest levels of testing, as The Washington Post Friday, “more than 10,000 tests have been given every day” since the virus spiked in the southern city of Daegu at the end of February.

This is a question that millions of parents silently screaming into the void, and this is one especially difficult for science to answer. The best and most honest answer, experts say, simply: “It depends.” (But think months rather than weeks.)
It depends on when the US case finally reached its peak. It took two months for coronavirus outbreak in China for the summit. South Korea took about half a month. The number of cases in Italy are still climbing in scary mode.
In the United States, however, we do not even know the actual number of cases due to limited testing. Even after our peak, we are very likely to need to survive with some drastic measures to help keep the virus at bay.
There may be a second or third wave of the outbreak. Some measures – such as isolating those infected, obsessive hand washing – may have to continue until we have a vaccine work (within 12 to 18 months, hopefully). And then there are some key characteristics-but-not known about how this virus behaves that will affect how this all plays out.
