According to the report, the patient was diagnosed with a new type of coronavirus infected pneumonia as soon as he had fever, dry cough and other symptoms on January 24. Through a detailed epidemiological investigation, it was found that the infection originated from a family dinner.
On January 23, the first patient took part in a family dinner, a total of 9 people, including the second sister from Hubei. Soon, seven of the nine people who took part in the dinner got sick one after another, including patient two and patient three.
The spread of the virus continues. After attending the family dinner on January 23, patient 2 (not sick at that time) and patient 3 (not sick at that time) attended another family dinner in a hotel on the night of new years Eve on January 24, totaling 15 people. After the dinner, three more people fell ill. In addition, another family member was also infected because of close contact with the dinner party.
At present, the 9 patients (another 2 in other places) are isolated and treated in Nanjing public health medical center, and the close contacts after investigation and tracking are all under medical observation.
