Mysterious virus in China, 59 affected by pneumonia
Fifty-nine people sick. But no one understands why. An unknown virus is causing attacks of pneumonia between China and Hong Kong. There are no victims, but seven sick are in a serious condition. The other 163 people that have been in contact with them remain hospitalized in isolation. Hong Kong and Singapore have started the control of the temperature of the forehead, for those arriving with trains and planes. The only clue so far, leaps to the eye is that many of the sick people had attended the fish market, Wuhan, a city of central China's 19 million inhabitants. Here are also sold live animals and game. The first thought of the health authorities was a possible new virus that can be transmitted by the wild animals.

The market has been completely disinfestato. But on the nature of the virus is groping in the dark. It is not Sars, the responsible of the acute respiratory syndrome that between 2002 and 2003 and killed more than 700 people, mainly in China and Hong Kong. Dying in Bangkok was Carlo Urbani, the Italian physician who is responsible for the classification of the virus. Also excluded bird flu epidemic that was experienced in 2013, and is never wholly eradicated. The new virus is not even the Mers, the respiratory syndrome in the middle east, appeared in 2013 in Saudi Arabia. This is obviously a new microorganism, which researchers have not yet managed to identify. “We do not have sufficient information to assess the severity of the risk” has communicated to the World Health Organization. The chinese police has already sanctioned 8 people to the false news circulated on the internet.

The sick – children and adults, 8 to Hong Kong – have fever, difficulty breathing and in some cases injury to the lungs that appear on the x-ray. So far there have been no contagions from one person to another or to medical personnel: all of them seem to have been sick in one way or another in Wuhan. Many were vendors of the market. The lesson (and the fear) of Sars seem to have worked that time. The alert is taken everywhere, in airports and stations, such as in laboratories, where the work to arrive at the identification of the mysterious virus has already started. The first symptoms date back to December 12, and the alarm, Who arrived on the last day of the year. From the 1st of January, the market in Wuhan is was dammed.
