Hope: China clears local Coronavirus contagions


From Wednesday (18) to Thursday (19), China has not registered any new cases of local infection by Coronavirus, which is being celebrated by local authorities and health experts, as it gives hope about the effectiveness of quarantine adopted in the Asian country, and followed in other countries around the world.

The problem is that the virus had already left there. After the doctor passed away due to exposure to the Coronavirus, international criticism of China increased, as did the cases of xenophobia.

Today, the biggest contagious epicenter is Europe, with Italy leading the number of infected and killed on the continent.
