Chinese media have changed a report that a doctor, Li Wenliang, who blew the whistle on the coronavirus outbreak has died of the infection.
The state-run Global Times said Li Wenliang had died in Wuhan but later reported he was instead critically ill.
The People’s Daily had earlier sent out a tweet saying Dr. Li’s death had sparked “national grief”.
Dr. Li warned fellow medics about the virus on December 30, but was told by police to stop making “false comments”.
Also, the Senate yesterday expressed worry over the non-screening of chattered flight passengers at the private terminals in the nation’s international airports following the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The lawmakers’ worry followed the submission of the Director of Port Health Services in the Federal Ministry of Health, Dr. Morenike Alex-Okoh.
