China Issues Warning of Deadly ‘Unknown Pneumonia’

China warns the World of a deadlier than corona 'unknown pneumonia'

The Chinese embassy in Kazakhstan has issued a warning of deadly ‘unknown pneumonia’ after more than 600 people died of pneumonia in June, a report has said.

According to the South China Morning Post, authorities in Kazakhstan — the central Asian country, have reimposed Covid-19 lockdown in some parts of the country amid a spike in pneumonia cases last month.

The country as a whole saw 1,772 deaths in the first part of the year, 628 of which happened in June, including some Chinese nationals, the Chinese embassy said in a statement.

“The death rate of this disease is much higher than the novel coronavirus. The country’s health departments are conducting comparative research into the pneumoni virus, but have yet to identify the virus,” the embassy was quoted as saying to the South China Morning Post.

While the Chinese embassy described the illness as ‘unknown pneumonia’, Kazakhstani officials and media have only said it is pneumonia.

“Some 300 people diagnosed with pneumonia are being hospitalised every day,” Saule Kisikova, the health care department chief in the capital Nur-Sultan, was quoted as saying to the local media. It was also not known if the WHO had been informed about the ‘unknown pneumonia’. (IANS)
