Skip to comments.Coronavirus patients in new Chinese cluster exhibiting symptoms different from Wuhan

Coronavirus patients in northeastern China are reportedly taking longer to recover from the virus and to exhibit symptoms than patients from the original outbreak in Wuhan, one of Chinas top doctors told state TV Tuesday. Dr. Qiu Haibo, who is taking care of patients in the northeast, said the more than two-week incubation period is making it hard to keep the virus from spreading and could show the virus is changing, Bloomberg reported.
Patients in the northeast also mostly have lung damage rather than in their heart, kidney and stomach as in Wuhan. At least 46 cases have popped up in three cities located just north of North Korea's border Jilin City, Shulan and Shengyang which are under lockdown again. Of those infected, 26 have been hospitalized, according to Bloomberg. Last month, a study from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China, found the virus had mutated into at least 30 different genetic versions.
"Drug and vaccine development, while urgent, need to take the impact of these accumulating mutations, especially the founding mutations, into account to avoid potential pitfall," the study said.

Looks like this is going to be a long, rocky road. Democrats and the media now will have something to grab on to to really mess the country up.
Are we to believe that only one virus escaped?
How nice that this biowarfare agent slipped out of the Chinese labs. Is this EVER going to go away?
So much for “Golden Years.”
Wuhan likely got a deadlier strain straight from the lab that killed off many of its hosts - and the new outbreak is a somewhat milder mutation.
I was wonderin’ when the next shoe would drop. It’s probably here already.
I said a few weeks ago that they’d release a second and even a third virus.
We are in a bio-warfare attack, the worst is yet to come.
You all keep calling me a nutcase...but if you won’t realize we are at war with China...I can’t help that.
Magical thinking will make the virus go away—at least that seems to be the view of many around here....
Faux news with the fear crap . How do you get OAN
Wear the masks. If everyone does this the transmission of any of this will be cut way down and we will bounce back quicker, which is kind of important.
OAN - I get it on channel 347 on Direct TV. Request your company to carry it.
“You all keep calling me a nutcase...but if you wont realize we are at war with China...I cant help that.”
I must be a nut too.
China shut down all of China except the international Air Port in Wuhan.. why? because they wanted the virus to spread
They don’t need 5 million this time. Each virus piggy backs on the one before it.
This is my biggest concern with the asymptomatic people and initial weak/mild response. They were compromised and didn’t or don’t know it.
That’s what’s happening.
Parasites that kill their hosts quickly don’t last long.
The mutation is appearing precisely because it can: not as lethal, doesn’t cause problems for a while.
I also am pretty sure China is trying to wreck our virus response and along with all the hacking and lies I think we should not take all their reports as gospel. Ill gladly take the (non-Chinese) vaccine and not just assume that it wont work so why take it. Im pretty sure they want to avoid at all costs, Americans taking American shots. They want to control what we do and dont get, dependent on their whim.
Well, there goes my plans for a North Korean border vacation shot down the tubes. /S
Keep the international flights from China shut down.
Keep the Canada and Mexico borders shut down.
Do not let anyone from China in to the U.S.
Fauci sent two funding allocations both over $3M to Wuhan for what it’s worth.
