<a href="https:\/\/see.news\/al-obeidi-egyptians-abroad-keen-to-follow-wyf\/">Bahgat Al-Obeidi th<\/a>e International Federation founder of Egyptian Citizens Abroad, said that the whole world is watching the details of the <a href="https:\/\/en.wikipedia.org\/wiki\/Coronavirus" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Corona virus<\/a> that struck China recently. It has spread to 4 continents in the world.\r\n\r\nAl-Obeidi affirmed that all world countries have taken action to protect their people from this virus. It is not clear, until this moment, the possibility of treatment and recovery from its absence.\r\n\r\nMany deaths, which occurred in China, and other countries spread fear in the hearts of the people around the world.\r\n\r\nMeanwhile, Austria imposed preventive measures, including detecting people coming from epidemics areas, and making sure that they are free of the rapidly spreading virus.\r\n\r\nOn other hand, Al-Obeidi rejected categorically what was announced by a former Russian politician that the United States of America was behind the manufacture of this virus, as that similar to swine flu and BSE that struck Britain.\r\n\r\nAlso, he praised the precautionary steps announced by Egypt to confront this virus, which are no less than any measures in European countries.\r\n\r\nThe death toll from the corona virus outbreak in China has risen to 80,after 24 new deaths were reported in Hubei Province,local authorities announced Monday.\r\n\r\nAlso in this region,371 new cases of the corona virus were recorded,bringing the total number of infections to 2,744 across China (1,423 in Hubei Province),according to central government statistics.\r\n\r\nThe corona virus cases were reported in a number of countries (such as Japan,France,the United States,and others),while the Arab countries confirmed that they were free of the virus.\r\n\r\nChina announced on Sunday a nationwide ban on wildlife sales in stores,restaurants and e-commerce sites.\r\n\r\nHealth authorities in Beijing urged people not to shake hands but to use a conventional cupped-hand gesture instead of saluting. The advice was sent in a Sunday morning text message that went out to city mobile phone users.\r\n\r\nThe outbreak has overshadowed the start of the Lunar New Year,usually a festive time of year,with the cancellation of public events and the closure of many tourist sites. Many on social media have been calling for an extension of the week-long holiday to help prevent further spread of the virus.
