A study published in the medical journal ‘JAMA’ confirms that like coronaviruses in the past, the Wuhan coronavirus appears to be spreading in hospitals. The study reported that 41 per cent of the first 138 patients who were diagnosed with the latest coronavirus in one Wuhan hospital appeared to have been infected in that hospital. It reveals the need for better protection of health care workers and others who care for the sick, while more needs to be known about how widely the virus is circulating, the proportion of those infected who are seriously ill, and whether the epidemic has peaked.
