    WHO says most coronavirus cases ‘mild’ (2020/02/10)

    In a study of Chinese data, experts at the World Health Organization found that 82% of coronavirus patients show only mild symptoms. WHO experts said that 15% of virus cases are severe, and only 3% are considered critical. Although the new virus is less deadly than SARS, Taiwan experts warn that it can still cause serious damage. That's because many of the infected people have symptoms so mild they can go about their everyday lives and potentially spread the virus to others.

    As the coronavirus continues to spread, the WHO, citing 17,000 confirmed cases in China, announced that at least 82% of patients have mild symptoms.

    Based on reported data from different parts of the world, they found that the proportion of mild symptoms is actually quite high, accounting for over 80% of the coronavirus cases. Another 10% have severe symptoms, while critical cases amount to 2% to 4% of the total.

    This data is consistent with current estimates of the disease’s mortality rate. However, since mild symptoms are easily overlooked, they can accelerate the virus’ spread, as many people will not realize they are sick. This is the main challenge to preventing the spread of the virus.

    The challenge here is that the virus can cause a lot of mild symptoms, and people let their guard down. If you don’t think you are seriously ill, you will continue to go about your everyday routine, so that’s why the virus has spread so fast.

    The CDC has three different measures in place according to a patient’s situation. If a person has returned from China’s Hubei province or has been in contact with a person confirmed to have the virus, they are placed in “home isolation” and are barred from going outside while they are monitored twice daily by the health authorities. The second measure known as “home quarantine” applies to Hong Kong and Macao residents, as well as people with a history of travel in China, Hong Kong and Macao. They are also barred from going outside for 14 days. The local borough warden or a similar administrator will check up on their health once a day. As for the third category of “independent health management,” individuals may leave the house within two weeks but must wear a mask and report any health issues immediately.

    There are different levels of self health management. The strictest level bars you from going outdoors, while at another level, you can leave the house but you must wear a mask and not get too far away from home.

    And the over 1,700 Taiwanese who returned to Taiwan on the cruise ship “SuperStar Aquarius” have also been requested by the authorities to undergo the procedure of “independent health management.” Prevention is after all better than cure.

    武肺全球破3萬7千例 WHO:82%為輕症

    武漢肺炎確診病例,在全球持續攀升。WHO根據中國先前提供的1.7萬名確診病例資料顯示,這回疫情有82%患者是輕症,15%為重症,只有3%病患發展成病危。不過,這項數據不值得安慰,反而應該加強防疫,因為很多人輕症不認為自己生病。因此我國疾管署特別採取三項防疫措施,居家隔離、居家檢疫和健康自主管理,透過不同狀況來劃分管制等級,來防堵疫情傳播。

    武漢肺炎疫情持續延燒,世界衛生組織也引用,中國所提供1.7萬名確診病例的數據顯示,這回疫情,至少有82%是輕症。

    [[台灣感染症醫學會理事長 黃立民]]
    “根據全世界報出來的數據,然後做一個統計再加上分析,他們就發現其實輕症占的比例蠻高的,占了8成多,其他百分之10幾是重症,然後非常嚴重的重症可能是2到4%。”

    這樣的數據,符合目前的死亡率,但輕症會加速傳播,多數人不認為自己生病了,是武漢肺炎的防疫困難之處。

    [[台灣感染症醫學會理事長 黃立民]]
    “這個病毒比較厲害的就是因為,它會造成很多輕症,所以你就沒有戒心,他自己本人也不以為自己生了大病,他也是正常活動,所以使病毒傳播變得這麼快。”

    因此疾管署針對不同狀況有三種措施,只要從湖北回來或是跟確診個案有接觸的,採「居家隔離」,由衛生主管機關每天追蹤兩次,14天內不得外出;第二種是「居家檢疫」,適用中港澳旅遊史或港澳人士,由里長或里幹事每天詢問健康狀況,同樣14天內不得外出;健康自主管理者,14天內可以外出,但必須配戴口罩,一有問題隨時通報。

    [[台灣感染症醫學會理事長 黃立民]]
    “自主管理跟自主防疫它有不同等級,一種是不能出門那是最嚴格,另外一種是你可以出門,但必須戴上口罩而且不能太遠。”

    而這次回台的寶瓶星號,1700多位台灣人,也被要求健康自主管理,畢竟預防勝於治療,這回疫情又以輕症居多,疾管署不敢大意。
