中신종코로나 사망 630명•확진 3만1천명 넘어...첫 경고한 중국 의사 사망

Over in China, the death toll from the virus rises while the disease continues to spread across the world.
A whistle-blowing Chinese doctor who was among the first to identify the deadly new coronavirus died of the disease in Wuhan earlier this morning.
Park Hee-jun brings us the updates. The death toll in China from the novel coronavirus has hit 636,... with the total number of confirmed cases standing at more than 31-thousand.
China's National Health Commission revealed the latest figures early Friday,... with 73 deaths and more than 3-thousand additional cases occurring in a single day.
But around 1-thousand-500 patients were discharged from hospital.
In Hubei Province alone,... there have been 618 deaths and over 22-thousand confirmed cases.
That's an increase of 69 deaths and 2-thousand-400 cases in one day.
Among those who died from the illness is Li Wenliang,... one of the first doctors to have warned people about the coronavirus.
The 34-year-old had informed the public through WeChat back in December of a "SARS-like" disease.
But he was targeted by the police for "making false comments."
The nation met the news of his death with grief and anger,... demanding the government to apologize for downplaying the seriousness of the virus.
The news also sparked the issue of freedom of speech in China.
In response, China announced it will send an anti-corruption team to probe issues regarding Li.
With no signs of the outbreak slowing down,... China has enforced lockdowns and similar measures in 14 more provinces and cities outside of Hubei Province.
The cities affected include Hangzhou, Liaoning and Nanjing.
Figures continue to rise in other parts of the world as well.
The virus has killed two people outside the Chinese mainland one in Hong Kong and one in the Philippines.
Over 30 cases have been detected in Europe Germany having the most with 13 patients.
Overall, Japan has reported the highest number of confirmed cases outside of China,... followed by Singapore, Thailand and South Korea.

Chinese government lies. There are more death than announced, and more infected. The number they provide are false.

We were told only people who were already sick or a compromised immune system are at risk of death. This doctor was perfectly healthy before being infected.

Dr Li was young and educated about personal protection. And he got infected and died. What a powerful statement that makes.

The anti-corruption team is there to silence the truth. Remember, you can't trust Chinese government. Dr. Li is a true hero.

I wish people would have some restraint and stop trying to start world War 3 with their words! The power of life and death is in the tongue! The tongue is a world of iniquity : so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature, and is set on fire of hell!

We need to pray because these are very perilous times!!!

Had a short chat earlier with a Chinese friend based in Shanghai. I said I first learned about Dr. Li's story a few days back through a news agency's article and I felt like crying and was truly affected by this news. She said their community is also sad about the news. I hope Dr. Li knows he died a hero. RIP, Dr. Li.

These really are the end times we're living in. All the forests are burning up, the oceans are dying, wars, famines, disease and earthquakes. These are signs for the nations, "He's at the door".

If anything, imagine the chinese population actually hitting a breaking point and riot or revolt against the government with the way this is going!

The people: lets make a change, together we shall PROTEST and accomplish this.

Government leaders : we are going down, let's release a deadly virus in the midst of all this.
