Virologist Who Visited Wuhan Says Coronavirus Epidemic Situation “Out Of Control”

The expert said “I’ve experienced so much and I’ve never felt scared before. But this time I’m scared.”

According to a top virologist who was involved in the response to SARS is saying the coronavirus is spreading “out of control,” and says it’s the first time he’s been “scared.”

As reported by the Globe & Mail, Dr. Guan – the director of the State Key Laboratory of Emerging Infections Diseases at the University of Hong Kong – explained his concerns:

Dr. Guan, however, left Wuhan convinced that “the epidemic situation was out of control.”

Most viral outbreaks ”are controllable,” he said. He pointed to SARS, H5N1 and swine fever.

“I’ve experienced so much and I’ve never felt scared before,” he said. “But this time I’m scared.”

And as if that wasn’t enough, Guan said “Conservative estimates suggest that the scale of infection may eventually be 10 times higher than SARS.”

The number of infected individuals and deaths from coronavirus continues to grow, and as I wrote earlier, China’s government appears to be in full blown panic mode.

China has already locked down 4 cities, with a whopping 20 million people now quarantined.

Yet, those measures – the largest quarantine in human history – may not be enough, says Guan:

“When these people returned to their hometowns, they took the virus to all parts of the country,” he said. In Wuhan, doctors told Caixin that the number of infected people could reach 6,000. Using computer modelling, researchers at Imperial College London now estimate there could be as many as 4,000 cases in Wuhan alone.

Given the incubation period of the virus, Dr. Guan estimated that symptoms may begin to appear more broadly across China beginning Jan. 25.”
