As of Friday, the number of registered coronavirus cases reached 65,213, while the death toll from the outbreak has risen to 1,486. The World Health Organization (WHO) advisor for the new virus warns that two-thirds of the world's population may be infected.

Ira Longini, a top infectious disease scientist and co-director of the University of Florida's Center for Disease and Infectious Disease Control, cited Sputnik as saying that "China's strict measures are being taken." Including isolation will reduce the spread of the disease. The Covid-19 virus is spreading across China and far-flung regions, the researchers added.

Longini's data, based on data, shows that people who are infected are more likely to transmit the disease to several other people, meaning billions more likely to become infected.

Although a method has been found to reduce infections by 50 percent, the virus can infect a third of the world's population, the scientists claim.

"Unless there is a change in infection, surveillance and prevention work well," he noted. Isolated cases and isolated relationships will not stop the virus. "

Longini warned that even Hong Kong University professor of public health, Gabriel Leung, estimates that nearly two-thirds of the world's population can carry the virus if it is out of control. October
