Scientists predicted that the Coronavirus may kill 65 million people. US health experts have predicted that the Coronavirus will kill tens of millions of people according to a report published in the British Daily Mail. The authorities have closed the city of Wuhan, which is the epicentre of the new coronavirus. While medical authorities around the world are seeking to prevent its spread. The spread of the epidemic virus depends on several factors. Including the severity of the disease, the ease of transmission between people, the population density, the availability of health services, and the nature of the place where the disease spread, and the movement of travellers.
“A global health threat”
There are fears that the infection will accelerate as hundreds of millions of Chinese travel at home and abroad during the Lunar New Year holidays, although many cancel their flights. Airports around the world have strengthened screening for travelers from China, although some health officials and experts question the utility of such checks.
With the development of transportation, there is no place in the world that is longer isolated. The virus may easily move to other places in the world with the movement of travelers and goods.
