Travelers Wear Plastic Bags To Protect Themselves From Coronavirus
TRAVELERS – Photos of travelers wearing plastic bags in Shanghai railway station elicited reactions from the netizens.
People from all parts of the world are worried about the 2019 novel coronavirus. The deadly virus was first recorded in Wuhan, China. The city of 11 million people is currently under lockdown to halt the spread of the virus.
The bat soup that was served in one of the wet markets in the city is suspected as the root of the virus. The number of infected patients continues to increase. The coronavirus outbreak has reached other countries like Japan, Hong Kong, France, Australia, and Nepal.
Cough, shortness of breath and fever are the symptoms of the Wuhan virus according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The symptoms may appear between 2 and 14 days.
A few days ago, the Chinese government has agreed to allow the United States experts to enter China to help them stop the virus. They already completed the makeshift hospital to treat nCov patients.
On Monday, ANC 24/7 shared photos of travelers wearing plastic bags in public places to protect themselves from the deadly virus. Based on the caption, they are walking outside the Shanghai railway station in China.
