The Chinese authorities have registered 19 cases of corona virus related pneumonia on foreign nationals. Of the 19, two have recovered and the sick are in quarantine and undergoing treatment.
The nationalities of those infected have not been disclosed as it was pointed out that for the Chinese government, the health and security of citizens of other countries was no less important than that of protecting and saving the lives of Chinese, according to a report in a daily local paper.
All hope is not lost, as the US drug, remdesivir, began clinical trials on patients in Wuhan according to a report in chinadaily. They are hoping the drug will be as effective on people infected with corona virus as it was in a controlled lab environment. #ISTANDWITHCHINA
