The world is grappling with 2019-nCoV, the new Coronavirus spreading rapidly from the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei Province. The spreading virus, which as of February 5th counts 24,642 confirmed cases across dozens of countries, can be fatal, resulting to-date in 494 deaths.

Response to the outbreak is vast and highly variable, with China placing much of Hubei Province on a transit lockdown, Russia shutting down their border with China, which at just over 2,600 miles is the 6th longest land border in the world, and nations around the world putting additional precautions into place at major ports-of-entry, including quarantining flights and cruise ships with thousands of passengers.

The world is grappling with 2019-nCoV, the new Coronavirus spreading rapidly from the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei Province. The spreading virus, which as of February 5th counts 24,642 confirmed cases across dozens of countries, can be fatal, resulting to-date in 494 deaths. 

Given the nature of a viral epidemic like 2019-nCoV, that spreads via human-to-human transmission, the spatial component of the infection data is a critical component for understanding transmission patterns and rates, and establishing emergency response plans.

Grassley Oversight & Investigations Staff Receive Briefings from HHS and its Subcomponents                      

Washington – Oversight and investigations staff for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), today received a classified briefing from the HHS Office of National Security (ONS) regarding the coronavirus threat and the status of U.S. government efforts to combat the spread of the deadly virus. 

“While the coronavirus is not yet a pandemic, there are signs that it could develop into a worldwide threat. Based on public reports, I’m concerned that China may not be accurately reflecting the scale or scope of the problem or sharing information with global health organizations. The United States stands ready to assist China in any way it can. I would hope that on matters with global health implications, the United States and China could work together, especially to prevent the spread of disease.
