There are now more than 17,000 and more than 360 people have died outside China. There are more than 150 confirmed cases on. We now have a fatality in the Philippines to and in a bid to contain this virus. Some countries of denying entry to any people from Wuhan, the city where this virus began. On China's accusing some countries of overreacting and stoking panic, for example, it's unimpressed that the U. S has declared a public health emergency and is denying entry for a while. Foreign nationals who visited the whole of China in the past two weeks and if that's the Americans, this is what the World Health Organization is saying is no reason for measures that unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade. We call on all countries to implement decisions that are evidence based and consistent, while in China millions of people are going back to work after the Lunar New Year holiday. We have these pictures. First of all, you can see people well, these in public areas being disinfected. We know that there have also been fever checks at transport hubs to try and spot people with raised temperatures. You may have the virus. Workers are also try to disinfect these public spaces, and China's urging an issue. An urgent appeal for more protective suits, goggles and mask because it's running low of these pictures from Manila in the Philippines has been a rush to buy facemask. Thereafter, a man from Wuhan died, and then this is Hong Kong, where hospital staff for going on strike. They want the border with mainland China to be completely shot. When excess focus on the experience of being in the city of Wuhan, it remains on lock down. People are being allowed to leave or come in, and those who were there being encouraged to stay at home. We spotted this one Russian man who works there and filmed this, huh? Around 5 p.m. Sunday on the street, he can see only fake people. People here, people there. And remember that new hospital that was promised in Wuhan? Well, it's finished. This is a time lapse of being constructed in nine days. It's now admitting patients and these images have bean enthusiastically distributed by Chinese state TV. It's also Bean showing things graphic as well a cartoon with the machinery involved in that construction being hailed as heroes. There are other images circulating on Chinese social media fan art featuring these machines, a lot of it created by people stuck inside cities currently locked down. So here's one digger with a big love heart in front of it, or you've got this one here on This was been given a nickname, the Cement King. Now several countries are trying to get their citizens ounce of Wuhan. Let's focus on Australia. These Australian evacuees waiting for hours that would hand airport before eventually being flown out. 89 Children were among those on board this. The first plane of Australian citizens and permanent residents to be flown out on This is where the plane landed in western Australia. But before passengers were put onto those what's that landed There They were put onto smaller planes and immediately taken here to Christmas Island. It's very much known for a large immigration detention centre, which you can see there. This will be used to house the Australians in quarantine they're expected to be there for two weeks or so of these images released by Channel seven, which shows some of the medical facilities that is being put up there. You can see here an inflatable room to be used for isolating any potential confirmed cases of the virus. It's known as a negative pressure because it allows fresh air in but stops potentially contaminated air from getting out well since 2003 asylum thousands of asylum seekers have been detained on Christmas Island well off the mainland of Australia under Australia's refugee policy. At the moment, no, it just house is a family of four Sri Lankans who are fighting deportation. So the plan here is to house the Australians, who have been taken out of Wuhan on house thumb on the island in the short term. But there are concerns, particularly about whether there are adequate medical facilities. Indeed, no, All of the 600 Australians and Wuhan have chosen to leave his woman, who did woman who did leave. Explaining why, she said, I got a lot of pressure from my husband. He said The situation is not very good. All the other countries and starts to close the borders, he said. If we stay over here, would probably take a couple of months to get out of Wuhan. So he started to get really nervous and she got on the flight. Four flights carrying evacuees are now scheduled for the rest of this week. Now two other important parts of this story are misinformation and racism spotted. This post has been widely shared in Australia, supposedly from an organization called the Department of Disease Geology Parramatta, except that it doesn't exist on the information in it. Advising people to stay away from suburbs with large Chinese populations is baseless. So saw this from a doctor in Australia. She tweeted a patient made jokes about not shaking my hand because of Corona virus in front of my team have not left Australia. This is not sensible public health precautions. This is racism while on misinformation and conspiracy theories around the Corona virus, his will summer attack journalist from the Daily Beast. We're seeing a lot of these these fake claims, you know, whether it's, you know, drinking bleach to ward it off were the idea that this has spread from Chinese people eating bats, you know, these, frankly, many of these these these ideas are, frankly, very racist, Uh, that are blowing up on social media. So So it's It's tricky, you know, we've seen some tweets from even epidemiologist. People who are experts in this field get taken out of context and really blow up online by people who are very concerned about Corona virus. Eso you know the solution, I think, is very responsible reporting and in people, really, you know, going to the experts on this rather than it's sort of seeing what's going viral on running with that. We saw this article by journalists called Angela Hoy, written in the Metro newspaper. In this article, she highlights some of the media coverage has taken exception to. For instance, this is The Herald Sun in Australia, has the headline Chinese Virus Pandemonium with the word Panda highlighted, and she's also written about her personal experiences here in London, in particular, one incident on the underground, a white man about in his twenties thirties since now next name and then immediately shoots back up and get up and then, like, mutters under his breath like oh, not sit next to a Corona virus and then sits a quote goes across the carriage and sit somewhere else. At the time, I was just, like, kind of taken aback by legal that really just happen and not really thinking too much about it and didn't really say anything at the time, because it's a little bit in shock. And also, I don't really wanna kick up a fuss about anything. Because is this? Yeah, I think that's what happened. And now you shared this story of other people come to you. And so what? You have experienced something similar? Yeah, actually, like quite a few people have experienced sick thing. The problem was when the Corona virus broke out, it was around like Lunar New Year as well. So a lot people weren't allowed her go back to go back home and visit family because a lot of people were locked down. Ondas Quite sad as well in Chinatown. Many people in Chinatown, like London, Yeah, London, Chinatown. A lot people didn't. You know we're avoiding the area because of your fear over capturing something or catching Corona virus. Andi, I never girl that I spoke to. She whistles on the tube and then she saw a man that you witnessed, man. I called in a newspaper and then there was a group of East Asians that just got on the tube, and he was just, like, using the newspapers covered face and like, like this kind of thing getting away from them. And then as soon as they got off the tube and he just kind of relaxed and it was just this, um I think it's just kind of really sad that everyone's being lumped together. It doesn't really matter if you're East Asian, Southeast Asian, you know, everyone's kind of lumped together. It doesn't, you know, regardless, whether if you're trying to use it all, which is the sad thing, I think. And in your article you were just talking about your personal experience for also highlighting some of the media coverage that you've taken issue with. Have you bean surprised by the tone that you've seen in some newspapers? To be honest, I'm not that surprised, cause I feel like a lot of on like East Asian, right? This discrimination is just not really reported on, and it's always is often ignored on. But I think the scaremongering headlines that just you know, thinking the worst, and it's making everyone think and think irrationally and do irrational things. Andi, it's just, you know, causing up like a frenzy where everyone's just scared. Onda. Yeah, I think it's just very unfairly that way that everything's being reported and thats much more information on the Corona virus fire, the BBC news website.
