We’re covering China Transfer System Coronavirus outbreak, rebuilding it Boris Johnson’s cabinet And a key ally Condemnation of President Trump
However, the large-scale segregation of Wuhan has led to confusion and frustration, putting some patients at greater risk.
Confirmed coronavirus patients have mild symptoms that are being massaged together, and people who are suspected of being infected are being isolated in converted hotels and schools.
Number of changes: Of China Transferred Uses a CT scan to detect pneumonia Instead of relying solely on a positive test for the virus, the number of reported deaths and infections seems to have suddenly increased. Experts say that scans can catch many more cases. At present the World Health Organization is relying solely on the number tested.
Reconstruction, Boris Johnson’s cabinet matched
The British Prime Minister this morning faced a new dynamic among his top advisers after thinking about changing the routine. Earthquake shifts Thursday.
Parliamentarian Sushi Sunak (1) and a relative newcomer to the Parliament, will be the Vice-Chancellor of the inquiry, traditionally playing the second most powerful role of the government. He is replacing his former boss, Sajid Javid, who has suddenly resigned instead of giving Mr Johnson some power over economic policy.
The Prime Minister had already asked several ministers’ top politicians to resign Johnson’s officials, when the prime minister tried to give the impression that his government had left behind three years of Brexit paralysis.
Intent: Encouraged by Mr Johnson, his influential aide, Dominic Cummings, and his recent election victory, he wants to regulate economic policies and direct institutions in the north and the middle of England, where voters are devoted to the Labor side.
Mr Johnson’s office insisted that Mr Javid dismiss his advisers, who would be replaced by a unit that would eventually report to the Prime Minister. “I do not believe that any self-respecting minister will accept such conditions,” Mr Javid said.
Other Investigations for Johnson: The opposition Labor Party is asking who the Prime Minister and his aides have paid for a luxurious Caribbean vacation a few weeks ago. He announced the value of £ 15,000
An important ally of Trump has expressed condemnation
In a television interview on Thursday, Attorney General William Barr, the top law enforcement officer in the United States, criticized President Trump.
He is Defended the role of the judiciary In conducting a legal case against Mr. Trump’s longtime friend Roger Stone, against whom Mr. Trump repeatedly attacked. Mr Barr’s intervention in the case won him praise for Mr Trump – but shook federal prosecutors across the country.
“I’m not going to be fooled or influenced by anyone,” Mr. Barr said, “whether it be Congress, the newspaper’s editorial board or the president.”
“I’m going to do what I think is right,” he said. “And, you know, I think I can’t do my job in the department with constant background comment that lessens me.”
See for yourself: We copy The key moment of Mr. Barr’s comments.
Another blow to the president: The Senate voted necessary Congress approves of further attacks against Iran. Coming almost six weeks after the U.S. military killed the top Iranian general, the vote was bipartisan but mostly symbolic, as fewer votes were needed than the number needed to override Mr Trump’s promised veto.

Reporting about coronavirus
New York Times science reporter Donald G. McNeill Jr. has been covering the infectious disease since 2002. He is part of a team of science journalists working to spread the latest coronavirus and understand the response to treatment. The following is a synthesized version of his observations and conversations about anxiety
What do we know about coronavirus and what do we not know?
At the beginning of each epidemic there is a fog of war.
I would say that we are still in that fog. We know these viruses are much more contagious than SARS or MRS. We do not know if it is infectious like the flu. We know it can kill people. We know it’s not as deadly as mars or stork.
One of the things we don’t know is what the Chinese aren’t saying. We know that They are reluctant to let outside experts Route around and sample the earliest cases with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will not be shared.
When you ask scientists, “What are your fears for the Big One, the pandemic that will kill us all?” – Not that the pandemic will kill us all – but if you ask them, they say, “flu.” They’re worried about some new flu, bird flu or swine flu, it’s deadly but becomes very contagious in humans. I only know one or two scientists who said, “You know, I think about the Coron virus being the Big One too.”
I don’t want to raise the alarm that this is the big one. But this is a new, scary and confusing one, and we still don’t know how far it is spreading and how many people are killing it.
What do you think about the public’s response to your report?
I always try to be: Am I alarmed, or am I not alarmed enough? I was very alarmist about bird flu in 2005 about H5N1. In the early days I was not careful enough about West Africa and Ebola. All previous Ebola blasts killed hundreds. He killed 11,000.
A big part of my beat is debunking horror stories. It spends almost as much of my time as reporting.
I try to spread the truth instead of panic, though it takes me longer to get it right.
That’s it for this briefing. Hope you have a great (and healthy) weekend.
