China issues terrifying new warning about coronavirus 'This is not over'

A CHINESE disease control expert has cautioned that the first coronavirus outbreak is "not over at all" as part of a terrifying warning amid lockdown being eased further in the UK.

The chief epidemiologist at the Chinese CDC, Wu Zunyou, said that the pathogen would shift the way we live and work forever. He added that the disease would “co-exist with humans for a long time”.

In China, a new coronavirus outbreak found in a Beijing seafood market raised concerns of a second wave of the virus.

Half a million citizens on Saturday were put into a stringent lockdown in Anxin County as a result.

The move was triggered by concerns that the pathogen could spread to the region, which is about 90 miles from Beijing.

Over 2,000 Anxin citizens are thought to work in Beijing’s Xinfadi market, where the new cluster of cases was found.

Mr Wu rebutted theories that Beijing's current cluster of cases indicated a second wave.

He told state media that virus was still in the middle of the fist coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking on China News on Monday, Mr Wu said: “The first epidemic wave is not over at all.

“The global epidemic has been escalating since January and has stayed at a high-risk level.”

He suggested the “vigorous growth” in the number of global daily infections were connected to the United States, Brazil and India.

“We are very worried about the rapid growth,” he said.

He insisted the Covid-19 pandemic would probably not “end all of a sudden” like the SARS outbreak in 2003.

“It is highly likely that [the virus] would co-exist with humans for a long time and change mankind's lifestyle and workstyle from now on,” he added.

Mr Wu's warning came as the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday that the coronavirus pandemic is “not even close to being over”.

The WHO's chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said: “We all want this to be over.

“We all want to get on with our lives.”

“But the hard reality is this is not even close to being over,” he said.

Mr Ghebreyesus added that “although many countries have made some progress, globally the pandemic is actually speeding up”.

The pathogen was first identified at least six months ago in China, where a WHO investigative team will look into its origin next week, according to Mr Ghebreyesus.

China’s health authorities on Tuesday announced there were 19 new Covid-19 infections in the mainland for June 29.

Seven of the new cases were found in Beijing the National Health Commission said in a statement.

As of Monday, 324 patients were hospitalised in Beijing with coronavirus, Beijing officials said.
