Experts from the University of Hong Kong’s faculty of medicine warned on Monday the government should tighten measures to minimize the spread of the new Wuhan virus, RTHK reports. Leung said that as of last Saturday, the basic reproductive rate of the virus is 2.13, meaning that the virus has been doubled every 6.2 days. He said it is predicted that the majority of the patients infected with the virus from Wuhan have reached other mainland Chinese cities before last Saturday. He urged cities to immediately adopt stringent measures to limit population mobility.
