China’s top coronavirus expert has warned that the contagion is ravaging the world as it did in Wuhan in the early stages of the epidemic, raising the alarm that bug-riddled countries could head down the same path as the epicentre.

Dr Zhong Nanshan, Beijing’s leading medical advisor on the virus, said the current pattern of the outbreaks outside of China was similar to the trajectory of the outbreak in Wuhan in its early days.

He urged nations around the world to step up their efforts to control and prevent the virus in order to defeat the pandemic.

Dr Zhong made the statement today while commenting on the rising number of ‘imported cases’ brought into China from overseas.

Dr Zhong said that the total infections outside of China had already exceeded 40,000 and the fatality rate averaged 3.2 per cent.

He explained: ‘The percentage is very high and similar to the situation in Wuhan in the early stages (of the outbreak).

‘This means doctors and the general public have not raised their alertness. That’s why they are going through this process.’

Dr Zhong said the epidemic was already under control in China, even in its hotbed Hubei Province.

But at the same time, China has identified 79 ‘imported’ coronavirus cases, and many of them did not show obvious symptoms when they entered the country.
