World Health Organization Advisor Airu Longini said that up to two thirds of the world's population can become infected with a new type of coronavirus. According to him, this will happen in an unfavorable scenario.

According to Longini, cited by the agency Bloomberg, each infected under normal conditions infects another two or three people. Even if you reduce this figure by half, a third of the inhabitants of the Earth will become infected with the virus.

Quarantine measures, in his opinion, can slow down the spread of the virus. However, measures were taken after the coronavirus managed to penetrate into other parts of China and other countries.

According to the latest data, more than 1 people died from a new type of coronavirus in China. Virus deaths have been reported in Japan.
