Coronavirus could Infect 60% of the World Population if not Controlled

But World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that the epidemic is far from over.

The coronavirus pandemic could grasp around 66% of the total populace if the destructive bug isn't controlled, a top general wellbeing official said - as another master anticipated that cases in China could top this month and blur away by April.

Although there has been no official word from the tournament organisers or World Rugby, the South China Morning Post has reported that the decision has been made to not go ahead with the tournament on the planned dates. Prof Gabriel Leung, the chair of public health medicine at Hong Kong University, said the overriding question was to figure out the size and shape of the iceberg. Maybe not. Maybe it will be done in waves.

Dr. Gabriel Leung told The Guardian's Sarah Boseley on Tuesday that "60% of the world's population is an awfully big number".

Epidemiologist Professor Leung is one of the world's leading experts on coronavirus outbreaks and played a leading role in the Sars outbreak.

He wrote in a Lancet article last month: "Independent self-sustaining outbreaks (of coronavirus) in major cities globally could become inevitable because of substantial exportation of presymptomatic cases and in the absence of large-scale public health interventions".

"Maybe the virus is going to attenuate its lethality because it certainly doesn't help it if it kills everybody in its path, because it will get killed as well", he told The Guardian. "If so, how can we deploy them, or is it impossible?" "Let's assume that they have worked". How long can you keep people from shopping in malls? And if you remove those [restrictions], then is it all going to come right back and rage again?

The decision was made "out of an abundance of caution related to uncertainties associated with the 2019-nCoV outbreak and to ensure the safety and security of U.S. government personnel and family members", a spokesperson said. Everybody should ideally be tested every couple of days.

Some countries considered to be at risk due to the movement of people to and from China have already taken their precautions. But other countries with close ties to China seem to have done nothing, like Indonesia.

Hong Kong has 50 cases and one death; Singapore 50 cases.
