Allen County Health Dept: No confirmed coronavirus cases in Ohio

EGYPT'S health ministry on Friday refuted claims of a newfound case of the COVID 19 incident in the African country as reported by some Nigerian media outlets.

In a statement, Egyptian health ministry said it had informed the World Health Organisation and had taken all necessary preventative measures.

"Having a name matters to prevent the use of other names that can be inaccurate or stigmatizing; it also gives us a standard format to use for any future coronavirus outbreaks", he added. Patients infected with the disease are presenting with a wide range of symptoms, she said, adding that a lot of them seem to have mild disease and about 20% appear to progress to severe disease, including pneumonia, respiratory failure and in some cases death.

The deadly coronavirus that has shaken the world has been officially named "Covid-19" by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Wild fire head coach Boudreau
The team made the playoffs in the first two seasons of Boudreau's tenure, losing in the first round both years. He's in his 13th season after previously coaching the Washington Capitals and Anaheim Ducks.

The greatest risk remains for people who have recently traveled to China, or people that have had close contact with persons confirmed to be infected by COVID-19.

Experts have raised concerns that countries with underdeveloped health systems - as can be found in Africa or Asia -would struggle to contain an outbreak. The death toll from China's COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic climbed past 1,100 Wednesday. Over 64,000 cases have been diagnosed globally. According to the National Health Commission of China, the number of people who died due to coronavirus has increased to 1,017.

The move significantly expands the government's response to the outbreak and comes as a particularly harsh wave of influenza is hitting the country. Symptoms include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing.

They addressed the novel coronavirus from all angles: assessing current knowledge, identifying gaps, and collaborating on the acceleration of priority research meant to stop it and future outbreaks alike. "The first vaccine could be ready in 18 months, so we have to do everything today using the available weapons to fight this virus, while preparing for the long-term". Testing will begin in five states before expanding. Some 600 people are now under quarantine.
