11:02 am
2003 chinese authorities suspect the virus originated in a seafood and make it here lizzie of rouhani it's thought the viruses spread from species to species there is a 10 day delay between infection and detection and that includes an incubation period and a further delay before hospital admission to 20 years joins us live now in beijing and this really couldn't happen at a worse time couldn't get given that you've got the big movement of people over the chinese new year tell us about the level of concern there. well more people are concerned because we had cases on the saturday here in china 50 people were confirmed to have this new coronavirus and today as you mentioned they're about 200 now confirmed japan thailand south korea as you mentioned but also outside of hunt itself so in the city of beijing there are some cases. generals have potential cases in juggling so people are really concerned about the
11:03 am
spread of this some of the measures that the governments have put in place a ramping up of screenings at airports and railway stations and also things like asking people to perhaps when mosques are there out pay attention to washing their hands and also. for trying to sort of prevent public gatherings but as you mentioned that sort of a useless point because we've had more people out in public crisscrossing the country traveling from place to place and we have during any other time that the if a chinese new year we have hundreds of millions of people getting on planes getting on trains to go to different cities and to go to different countries indeed and will hunt itself is not a small city there are about 11000000 people who live there and it is a major transport hub so there are a lot of people not only originating from 100 to go out but also just passing through so those concerns that we might see this number to jump even higher indeed over the next few days there is really one of the real concerns here is if this mutates if you start to see human to human transmission of this given that one of
11:04 am
the what is the government putting into place here and how much faith is there right now in the government what the government is telling the people because people have long memories they remember what happened during saws. that's right the government is at pains to emphasize to the chinese public that this is preventable and controllable there also the message is that so far the people who have confirmed to have this new form of corona virus have seem to have mild symptoms so they're really trying to prevent any panic from spreading they've also been a pains to say that it seems that everybody who's had a confirmed case so far has been in some way or another connected with this seafood and meat market where it originated from well connected in rouhani and say because of that we're they seem quite confident that this does come from one and it's not so far proving to be human to human transmission but as you say there is a lot of skepticism around the information that's been provided by the government
11:05 am
because in this 20022003 saw outbreak authorities authority is notoriously withheld information valuable information about the epidemic before it affected thousands of people so people are concerned that a similar thing is happening today and also another reason for that concern is that there is a big discrepancy between the numbers that we're seeing being reported here in chinese media and the numbers that some experts around the world of putting putting up some british researchers on friday actually predicted that there could be as much as 700 people with with this illness and the government has said so father only about 200 so there are also concerns about the difference in those opinions 3 thank you for that country you live for us from beijing. the police of baghdad as they tried to break down protesters barricades on the outskirts of the capital the latest round of mass demonstrations broke out there added a number of cities in the south including not just. protests of the country by
