kingdom to us. this is your cover 19 special here on the w. i'm chris berlin a warm welcome to more than 11000000 people worldwide have officially contracted the corona virus so far almost 550000 deaths are linked to covered 19 and while we are still battling this spend them you can prepare for future ones scientists believe it is wise to trace back the steps the virus has been taking. scientists believe the corona virus outbreak in humans may well have begun in a market in the chinese city of. researches say leaps between species happened when humans and animals are in close proximity one hypothesis is that the corona virus jumped from bats to pangolin to people into and causing a global health emergency. such leaps can happen in so-called wet markets that's where viruses can easily change their host crossing from one species to another.
2:18 pm
china is home to several web markets and the international community has been calling for that closure. i think i should shut down those things right away we can clearly see. the great risk to the work with the rest of the world. it's currently thought there are over 200 diseases that are spread from animals to humans known as do you know sees about 40 have the potential to cause a pandemic. sars ebola aids all are examples of viruses that jump from animals to human beings 3 out of 5 new infectious diseases that emerge originate from another species. i want to ask them it puts deaths from diseases caused by sooner sees at 2700000
2:19 pm
a year and that was in 2012 china is home to a major wildlife market industry and many chinese rely on it for their livelihoods the question is whether the will is that for people to change some practices the put everyone's lives at risk now in china researchers have discovered a new version of the swine flu it belongs to the h one n one virus type which in 2009 kicked of a pandemic that killed more than 800000 people scientists warned that the recently discovered version also has all the current characteristics to pose a threat to humans. this farm in guangxi province in southern china is clean and well run but it doesn't reflect the reality in many other parts of the country . if. poor hygiene and cramped conditions increase the
2:20 pm
risk of infection of all kinds including swine flu now against the backdrop of a global health emergency scientists are warning of the danger of a group of flying flu viruses that have adapted to infect humans the chinese government has criticized the study in question. so the experts have concluded that the sample size of the report is small and not representative relevant departments and experts will continue to strengthen monitoring center early warnings and handle things in a timely manner would you then. after the devastation caused by covert 19 it's in china's interest to take the threat seriously after all the country does not want to become the epicenter of another pandemic it's something that still is in the stage of examination it's not so called an immediate threat where you're seeing infections but it's something we need to keep our eye on just the way we did
2:21 pm
2009 with the emergence of the swine flu so far there's been no evidence of person to person transmission of the new strain of swine flu virus but the last few months have shown just how fast that could change. in a short while ago i spoke to when king zhang she manages the global influenza program at the world health organization and i asked her how worried she was about this so-called g 4 strain of the swine flu. so the cheapest rent oaks lie in fresno iris is not new iris cece virus comes a promise of ellen's program from tucson that you live in and you saw the 18. they were human infections e.c.g. for group slam virus reporting so of course well we are concerned of the seris as well as our west swine virus he said in any infrared ara-c.
2:22 pm
but otherwise so what it reminds us that we could we should remain vigilance and be aware of this threat from your friends or those that have the potential to cause a similar pandemic as the coronavirus now. well it's very difficult to to say back to all is it or is it any more in friend of ours he sister lost someone marise isa has a potential we only don't know which maurice would jump out and cause the next in friends of him. how disease do these viruses transmits give us an idea. well sea surface why virus is this all melting in friends of ours sweetening set to go to infect humans spar ethically just recently there was a human infection of swine virus is reported from germany was this is a slam virus infection in there in
2:23 pm
a child who had to sit there record come back to his pigs so he's typo's an arctic infection where occurs from time to time. and he'll use viruses that are. efficient human to human transmission well where it's a threat is here to settle it's not append any to what it is causing. one thing 3 out of 5 new insights diseases that emerge originate from animals where you see the biggest risk for the transmission of pathogens from animals to humans. yeah of course well and mark is a vast reservoir owning in viruses so as maris he's circulating in morse and most hoes of a silent plea what he and more sweets means and most what they want to present it is easy but if full well of so-so barassi says jump west through that
2:24 pm
species the area infecting human and also well causing sufficient efficient human to human transmission then it'll be a problem problematic so what we really need to look into is a human animal interface where to be alert when to stage what is possible any virus he said jumping out front end was species went to human so that we could pick those up and of course the well other efforts in the. hells on bryna when we talk about the animal human interface what sort of role do what markets play when it comes to the transmission of these viruses well human and more interface of course a lot oh well well from certainly aware markets a wet market to what is wound zos and also the us a was you are see as a couch and want well for example as a backyard was
2:25 pm
a becky and poetry well as well so i think what we've been doing is that we said. no i improve oma rock we struck at. the practice what human animal interface is a precursor ceteris etc so i think was it the other efforts made in parallel with street gasol was that when market went back yet as well as those were commercial farming etc when can just as the world health organization speaking there now it's time for our resident coronavirus expert here is our science correspondent derek williams answering your questions about covert 90. do people who are a sim to mattick carry the same amount of viruses people who show symptoms. spread from a decent a matic or precint to magic patients is one reason covert 19 it has moved with such
2:26 pm
such lightning speed to our populations and live viable sars cove to it is clearly being shared by people who often show no symptoms of the disease when they when they test positive for it so so we know they're playing a role in transmission much more of a role than they did for example during the sars epidemic when when patients were most infectious 5 to 10 days after they began showing symptoms the european centers for disease control say it's difficult to quantify how contagious asymptomatic people are because studies simply don't agree but the general consensus appears to be that they're less contagious than patients with symptoms or or precint dramatic patients people who are going to get sick but just don't know it yet however there's also growing evidence that there are no significant differences in viral
2:27 pm
loads between the groups so to sum it up asymptomatic people appear to carry just as much of the virus as someone with symptoms but they seem to be at least a little less likely to spread it. and of course you can post your questions to derek on our you tube channel if you'd like to keep up with the latest developments on the coronavirus spend them do subscribe to our newsletter just log on to w dot com slash corona stash newsletter. the coronavirus crisis is having a major impact on millions of hiv patients who are reliant on lifesaving drugs it is estimated that nearly 40000000 people across the world are living with h i.v. although there is no cure for the disease that causes aids anti-retroviral medication helps control it but the covert 19 pandemic is interrupting drug supply
