The transmission ability of the coronavirus is getting stronger, China’s National Health Commission Minister Ma Xiaowei said at a press briefing earlier today.
Xiaowei noted that the government has little knowledge of the new virus and the risks posed by mutations of the virus is vague.
National Health Commission Minister said the incubation period for the coronavirus is 1-14 days, and the virus is infectious during the incubation.
National Health Commission decided to cancel big events and extend travel restrictions.
The virus, reportedly, originated in an illegal seafood market of Wuhan. China has already proposed a nationwide ban on the sale of wildlife.
