High sulphur dioxide levels at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak could be a sign of mass cremations

High sulphur dioxide levels at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak could be a sign of mass cremations, it has been claimed. 

Satellite maps in recent days have shown alarming levels of SO2 around Wuhan, the Chinese city where the outbreak began.

Members of a World Health Organization expert mission flew to China to help coordinate the response to the virus, which has infected more than 40,000 people and killed at least 908. The country reported 97 deaths on Sunday, its largest toll in a single day since the outbreak was detected in December.

Meanwhile, a further 60 cases were confirmed on a cruise ship docked in Japan, and the UK declared that the virus constituted a serious and imminent threat to public health.

In the same statement, the NHC added that 187,518 people are currently under medical observation and 3,821 patients have been cured and discharged from hospital.

Meanwhile, more than 60 people on a quarantined cruise ship in Japan have tested positive for the disease, increasing the total number of infections on-board to 130.

Police went out again to search the new location, before the pair admitted they had actually thrown the baby in the Carrión river.

The body of the baby was eventually found and the mother admitted to giving birth on Tuesday, January 28.

“So what has he done? Who has he pulled together?” Mr Biden asked yesterday on ABC, referring to Mr Buttigieg, whom he called a “risk” to the party. “Does he know any of the foreign leaders?”

When an interviewer made the point that Mr Biden had made similar attacks in 2008 about Barack Obama not having much experience, the former vice-president responded: “This guy’s not a Barack Obama.”
