Latest issue highlights
The new virus that has emerged in China has been named. Numbers of people infected with the Covid-19 virus in the country continues to rise. Now, the virus has infected people in over 20 other countries. Yet, cases in most are fewer than ten. Covid-19 has arrived in these nations via airline travel. The vast majority of infections are in Hubei province in central China: the outbreak’s epicentre. In this issue, we explain why the Covid-19 problems are likely to dwarf the SARS outbreak of 18 years ago and what ‘knock-on effects’ are beginning to surface.
