Fall in new cases raises hope in virus outbreak in China

(AP) – The number of new cases of the coronavirus in China dropped for a second straight day.

Health officials said Wednesday in a possible glimmer of hope amid the outbreak that has infected more than 45,000 people worldwide and killed more than 1,100.

Dr Mike Ryan, the head of emergencies for the World Health Organization, said it is “way too early to try to predict the beginning of the end” of the crisis in China.

China has locked down an unprecedented 60 million people in an effort to curb the spread of the virus, which has hit hardest in the city of Wuhan and surrounding Hubei province.
