Wuhan Virus Cases Hit 4 Digit at 1,316 Cases Worldwide with 41 Deaths


It doesn’t feel like it has been very long since the virus first made global headlines in December.

In fact, it felt like just yesterday that I was writing about this mysterious, pneumonia-like virus that was spreading all over Wuhan, and the first suspected case of the virus.

But it’s a whole other ball game now that the Wuhan virus has reached our sunny shores in the form of not one or two but three confirmed cases.

Wuhan Virus Cases Hit 4 Digit at 1,316 Cases Worldwide with 41 Deaths

Yes, it’s the big four-digit number now despite various measures put into place.

One of them is the massive quarantine covering 13 cities that came into effect in China on Saturday in a desperate bid to try to stop the notorious virus from spreading.

See the thing is, the death toll has already risen to a grand total of 41 deaths.

And the latest update: Malaysia now has 3 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus.

The grand total is 1316 confirmed cases worldwide.

Transport Ban For 41 Million People

It’s the holiday season in China, but the government has decided to stop all travel out of Wuhan and shut down its public transport.


They have also told residents to stay at home.

This comes after the United States confirmed its second case of the Wuhan virus which has already reached far and wide to almost a dozen countries.

Yes, the situation is serious if you couldn’t already tell but you know sh** gets real when a section of the Great Wall and even Shanghai Disneyland announced temporary closures.

Wuhan Is A Ghost Town

It’s Chinese New Year, so obviously everyone’s visiting their relatives.

It’s a joyous time of the year, but this year, Wuhan was observed to be a “ghost town” with its streets empty and it’s stores closed.

What’s worse, due to the rising cases, there is a bed shortage for the sick in Wuhan.

In response to this, the authorities are scrambling to build a new hospital to cater to the outbreak in just 10 days.

Worker’s Party just agree with PAP on something, but there’s another reason why they did that. Watch this to the end and you’ll understand:
