WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus claimed that the further development of the coronavirus epidemic cannot be forecasted.

The Chinese government introduced death penalty for concealing symptoms of the deadly disease. This was the decison passed by the Chinese court. It also said that concealing the history of one's travels could will be considered a criminal offense, too. Thus, the person who became the source of the infection and led to the spread of the virus will be accused of creating a threat to public safety and may be sentenced to 10 years in prison or life imprisonment or death penalty.
