of the response in construction is in full swing on a new hospital for coronavirus patients chinese authorities say it will be complete in just over a week. the city at the outbreaks at the center remains under a transport lock down that road checks drivers with temperatures are sent for treatment. across china almost 40000000 people have had their travel restricted to during the important lunar new year holiday on that it's a lot of people had no way to get home i really feel for them because i can understand what it's like to have been working hard to way from home for a year everyone looks forward to being with their family i want but in this situation there's really nothing we can say about innocent people from. the outbreak even featured on state television new year broadcast with host sending messages of support to medical staff. the virus continues
to spread and has now reached europe one patient is being isolated in this hospital in bordeaux and others are being treated in paris. was a moment to pull we are going to do everything possible to contain this epidemic knowing that it is possible and even probable that there will be other cases particularly in europe just because they're on 20 other identified cases today doesn't mean that no other cases a secular. scenes like this are becoming common as airports use thermal monitors to screen travelers for signs of fever around the world concern is heating up. john epstein is a disease ecologist with the eco health alliance and he joins me from new york john we have these 1st reported cases in europe and also in the u.s. how prepared is the world for this outbreak. good evening well i think the world is as well prepared as it ever has been historically it's
a very different time than it was in 2003 when sars curve are submerged there's incredible communication and transparency in information coming out of china and the w.h.o. has been involved in helping to coordinate information as well so every country is aware of the risk of travelers coming in who are infected and have set up screening at airports and entry points and so there's pretty good surveillance systems in place ok and one of those measures is that more than 40000000 people have been quarantined in china will that stop this current virus from spreading especially this weekend when china is having its holiday the chinese lunar new year. well unfortunately this comes at a bad time given the amount of travel with the lunar new year but also the fact that this virus seems to have a 14 day period so before the corn teens in the cordoning off of cities was set up there were people who may have been exposed infected to perhaps 3 symptomatic and may have moved out of the area so we expect that there will still be travel related
cases moving throughout china and also internationally and do we have any confirmation yet origin of this virus and how we can really prevent this kind of outbreak from happening again. the good news is we do have a really good understanding is related to this one this is a virus that's closely related to sars current a virus that emerged in 2003 and what we know very well is that there is a group of corona viruses that are carried by bats including sars and likely including this one this virus is about 96 percent similar to the sars virus which we know is carried by small insectivorous bats in china so we still don't know is exactly which animal may have infected the group of people who are in the wrong market but we can say with confidence and there's a paper out 2 days ago by our colleagues in mohan talking about the genetic relatedness of this virus to bat coronaviruses so likely this is about origin virus
and we need to understand how it was transmitted to people in the marketplace. ok john epstein the eco health alliance thank you. thank you. now let's take a brief look at some of the stories making news around the world. tens of thousands of iraqis have gathered in central baghdad to denounce the u.s. military presence in their country the demonstration was organized by shiite cleric and politician. and in a rainy and linked forces. to protest as were killed and 251 dead in separate and 2 regime protests in the city. 6 in chile police deployed. water cannons to disperse protesters in the capital santiago the demonstrators are marking 100 days since social unrest began in october at least 27 people have died in the protests driven by anger over in quality and high living costs. police in germany say 6
