We are in the midst of a medical crisis – The deadly coronavirus has infected hundreds of people and is now spreading across the globe at an alarming rate.

The virus originated in China, and the country has descended into mass hysteria as people desperately attempt to protect themselves from the virus.

But some people have clearly let the panic get to their heads… A shocking and heartwrenching story has emerged of 2 panicked parents completely abandoning their sick children at the airport.

Keep scrolling for the full details on this sickening case.

 

The Chinese city with a population of over eleven million citizens is currently on lockdown as authorities investigate the spreading of a deadly disease.

Reuters has given a short guide to what it is exactly: “Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that get their name from what they look like under a microscope – they are spherical and their surfaces are covered with “crown”-like spikes.”

“Coronavirus infections can lead to respiratory illnesses – some of which can be severe and deadly, and some of which can be much milder, such as the common cold.”

“Coronavirus infections have a wide range of symptoms, including fever, coughing, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Severe cases can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and death.”

What is it that’s causing this deadly virus?

But it is widely believed that the sale of meat from wild animals is the prime cause of the coronavirus.

Strains of the virus have been discovered in bats in the past and, with them being a delicacy in some areas of China, they are believed to be one of the primary causes.

The strains can be spread by coughing, kissing or making contact with saliva, Chinese officials say.

Because of the speed in which the virus can mutate. The technicalities read: “The virus blends with its host’s DNA, which means it can mutate rapidly.”

So far, there have been over 800 cases of the virus, and twenty-six people have died.  

The virus continues to spread, and traces of the disease have already been discovered and confirmed in 8 other countries including Thailand, South Korea, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and Japan.

There are currently sixteen active cases being monitored in Washington DC but, because of the speed of mutation, it has also spread across the nation to California. A young girl is currently hospitalized with the virus and is showing no signs of recovery.

The United Nations’ health agency was forced to delay a decision on whether to declare the outbreak an international public health emergency as they continue to discuss the appropriate solution to the crisis.

And flights to and from the location have been reduced drastically in order to stop further infection.

But now, a shocking and truly heartbreaking story has emerged that makes this situation even more devastating.

A passenger traveling from Nanjing Lukou International Airport has alleged that they witnessed a sick child and his sibling being abandoned at the airport by their parents after being denied entry on their flight.  

The child’s dad was allegedly insisting that he wasn’t sick, but it is believed that the youngster was refused entry to his flight due to his feverish condition.

Where he wrote about his experience as he watched the parents argue for 3 hours with airline staff to try and get their children on board the flight, causing severe delays for other passengers in the process.

And, instead of rejoining their children, they went on to board the flight alone, leaving the youngsters, scared and alone, behind in the airport.

While the parents, who were clearly experiencing the hysteria surrounding the deadly virus, boarded their flight and went on their way. Sadly, this shocking and completely heartbreaking story is only the beginning of a worldwide crisis. This is a developing story, and we will be posting further updates as it progresses.
