Coronavirus- fears of its spread to Europe


Coronavirus- 70% chances of its arrival in Europe


Inserm has concluded that there is 33-70 per cent risk of a patient arriving in Europe by air.
According to the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) France- there is up to a 70 per cent chance of a patient carrying the deadly coronavirus arriving in Europe. The deadly coronavirus has originated from China and there are fears that it might spread to other countries. Many countries have already placed precautionary measures at airports to scan the passengers coming from China.  
The National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) analysed flight paths between Europe and China, where hundreds of people have contracted the previously unseen virus. The outbreak has killed 26 people after appearing first at a seafood market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, a key international transit hub.
Although Chinese authorities have moved swiftly to quarantine 13 cities, cases have already been confirmed in South Korea, Japan, Thailand and the United States.
Inserm has concluded that there is 33-70 per cent risk of a patient arriving in Europe by air.
The Inserm has said in a statement that “Given air traffic patterns, the countries most exposed are Germany and Britain,” It said the results were not a prediction, but simply a calculation of the probability of the disease reaching a given country.
