Epidemiology

The earliest reported symptoms occurred 1 December 2019, in a person who did not have any exposure to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market or to the remaining 40 affected people. Of the following 40 confirmed cases of COVID-19, two-thirds were found to have a link with the market, which also sold live animals.Of cases that began before 1 January 2020, 55% were linked to the market. By 22 January, this figure was reported to have dropped to 8.6%.[73] Hence, as the number of cases has increased, the significance of the market has lessened

During the early stages, the number of cases doubled approximately every seven and a half days. In early and mid-January 2020, the virus spread to other Chinese provinces, helped by the Chinese new year migration. On 20 January, China reported a sharp rise in cases with nearly 140 new patients, including two people in Beijing and one in Shenzhen.By 25 January, the number of laboratory-confirmed cases stood at 2,062, including 2,016 in Mainland China, seven in Thailand, six in Hong Kong, five in Macau, five in Australia, four in Malaysia, four in Singapore, three in France, three in Japan, three in South Korea, three in Taiwan, three in the United States, two in Vietnam, one in Nepal and one in Sweden.[76]

The virus was soon carried to other countries by international travellers: Thailand (13 January); Japan (15 January); South Korea (20 January); Taiwan and the United States (21 January); Hong Kong and Macau (22 January); Singapore (23 January); France, Nepal and Vietnam (24 January); Australia and Malaysia (25 January); Canada (26 January); Cambodia (27 January); Germany (28 January); Finland, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates (29 January); India, Italy and Philippines (30 January); the United Kingdom, Russia, Sweden and Spain (31 January); Belgium (4 February)

Citing 7,711 cases essentially in China and 83 cases abroad across 18 countries as of 29 January, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus outbreak to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January. As of 12 February, 44,793 cases have been confirmed worldwide, over 99% in mainland China.

While spread between people has been confirmed no active centres of propagation have been confirmed outside China as of 30 January.[citation needed]

On 7 February 2020, Singapore’s Ministry of Health announced 3 new cases where none are linked to the existing cases or have been in China recently.

On 6 February, the Chinese National Health Commission started to change how cases were reported – asymptomatic carriers, who tested positive for the virus but did not show clinical symptoms, would no longer be included in the number of confirmed cases. This had the effect of reducing the total number of cases reported, but also meant that potentially contagious individuals were ignored in reportsruary 2020
