The Corona virus continues to claim lives around the world, as the death toll in mainland China rose, on Friday, to at least 2236 cases, after Hubei Province, the epicenter in the center of the country, recorded 115 deaths during the past 24 hours.
The Health Committee of Hubei stated in its daily update of the death toll and injuries, the vast majority of these deaths were recorded in the capital of Wuhan, the city where the virus first appeared in late December 2019.
The committee added that during the past twenty-four hours, 411 new cases of HIV were recorded in Wuhan, while in the rest of the province, 92 new infections were recorded, with a total of approximately 349 new cases in Hubei.

Corona virus: why children survive infection?
The news of the infection of a newborn in China with the Coruna virus, on February 5, just 30 hours after his birth, spread quickly around the world.
This was the smallest case recorded, until now, since the outbreak that killed more than 900 patients and infected more than 40,000 people, most of them in China (although cases have been recorded in more than 30 other countries).
But very few of these injuries were among the children.
The most recent epidemiological study, published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, included an audit of hospitalized patients at Jinitan Hospital in Wuhan, the city that is the epicenter.
The study found that the ages of more than half of those infected with the virus ranged between 40 and 59 years and that only 10 percent of those infected were under the age of thirty-nine.
