China is rushing to build a 1,000-bed hospital in just six days to treat patients at the epicenter of the new coronavirus, which has killed at least 26 people, infected about 830 and prompted lockdowns in at least a dozen cities, according to reports.
A Texas A&M University student was being isolated at home on Thursday as health officials said they were examining whether he could be the second-known case of the coronavirus infection in the United States. Texas A&M said in a statement that the immediate health risk to those on its campus in College Station was considered low.
The case signified a growing roster of people being monitored around the United States since officials identified the country’s first confirmed coronavirus patient in Washington State this week.
Officials have been working to contact people who were on the man’s flight home from the Wuhan region, and on Thursday they increased the number of people identified as having had close contact with that patient in recent days to 43. Those people will get daily check-ins from medical personnel to monitor their health.
Disturbing images of Wuhan residents dropping unresponsive to the floor have emerged on Instagram following the diseased Chinese city’s coronavirus lockdown.
Wuhan has been branded a “zombieland” by frantic locals after Chinese authorities told residents they are not allowed to leave yesterday morning.
Pictures from inside the city paint an apocalyptic picture as medics patrol in hazmat suits and gas masks.
In an upload direct from Wuhan, a man can be seen lying unresponsive on the floor as concerned individuals look on.

One woman can be seen frantically pointing to the floor as a team of medics in hazmat suits attend to a man lying unconscious on the floor.
So far the coronavirus has taken the lives of 25 people with over 600 cases confirmed worldwide.
Cases have been confirmed in China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and the United States.
