Health officials in China have published the first details of more than 44,000 cases of Covid-19, in the biggest study since the outbreak began, BBC News reported.

Data from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC) finds that more than 80% of the cases have been mild, with the sick and elderly most at risk.

The research also points to the high risk to medical staff.

A hospital director in the city of Wuhan died from the virus on Tuesday.

Liu Zhiming, 51, was the director of the Wuchang Hospital in Wuhan – one of the leading hospitals in the virus epicentre. He is one of the most senior health officials to die so far.

Hubei, the province Wuhan is in, is the worst affected province in the country.

The report by the CCDC shows the province's death rate is 2.9% compared with 0.4% in the rest of the country.

The findings put the overall death rate of the Covid-19 virus at 2.3%.

China's latest official figures released on Tuesday put the overall death toll at 1,868 and 72,436 infections.

Officials reported 98 new deaths and 1,886 new cases in the past day, with 93 of those deaths and 1,807 infections in Hubei province – the epicentre of the outbreak.

More than 12,000 people have recovered, according to Chinese authorities.

TABIB Coronavirus doesnt have deadly effect on children younger than 10

“There are 7 varieties of coronavirus. From these, 4 are the diseases causing nasal discharge in people and take their course with such easy fly symptoms as a sore throat. Other varieties of this disease which were detected in the recent past and are spreading now have caused epidemics”, said Vasif Aliyev, head of TABIB’s Working Group, member of Operative Task Force under Cabinet of Ministers of Azerbaijan, APA reports.

He said there is no standard, specific, antivirus treatment method for any of these varieties: “Only the symptomatic treatment is applied to them. There is neither vaccine nor antiviral medicinal preparation for these diseases. Just some medicinal preparations are used for treatment, but their efficiency hasn’t been completely proved”.

V. Aliyev noted that according to the statistics, this virus doesn’t have deadly effect on children younger than 10: “Mainly the elderly people, the people suffering from a chronic disease – diabetes, chronic kidney, heart and liver failure, as well as the people have undergone organ transplantation, and the people suffering from oncology diseases bear this disease more heavily due to their weak body resistance. Some patients can recover in two weeks, but others can suffer more heavily, at the same time there is a likeliness of the repeated contraction of the virus. Similarly to the repeated contraction of the flu virus, the coronavirus can also be caught repeatedly. This is a case for all viruses”.
