Whistle-blowers who sounded the alarm about the coronavirus in China were reportedly arrested for ‘spreading rumours’.

A leading UK expert on China has claimed that the whistle-blowers had warned about the deadly virus a month ago.

The revelation comes as health officials declare a global emergency over the rapidly spreading coronavirus.

The nationwide death toll in China’s coronavirus outbreak has risen to 213, with nearly 2,000 new cases confirmed, the National Health Commission said on Friday.

In its daily update, the commission said 43 new deaths had occurred as a result of the virus, all but one of them in hardest-hit Hubei province where the virus first emerged.

Dr Yukteshwar Kumar of the University of Bath told the Mirror that those who tried to warn about the virus were allegedly silenced by the state.

He claims that the spread of the virus could have been reduced if people were made aware of the outbreak in late December.

‘They were asked to sign a confession stating that they will not spread false news. If they had taken steps earlier the situation could have been better because they did know about it,’ Dr Kumar told the publication.
