Although the world at large has good reason to be concerned about the spread of the coronavirus, its effects have been particularly catastrophic in China.
As CNN reported, there are now 28,275 confirmed cases of the disease worldwide, but over 28,000 of them are in China alone.
Tragically, this also means that China is where coronavirus has seen its most lethal consequences as 563 people have died from the disease there. For reference, exactly two coronavirus-related deaths have occurred thus far outside of China with one case having developed in Hong Kong and the other in the Philippines.
Unfortunately, among those 563 Chinese fatalities is the doctor who revealed the existence of coronavirus in the first place. And to honor his memory, we have to understand what he faced to make that information known.
