coronavirus journalist, WHO gives coronavirus an official name to help avoid the stigmatization of the disease. “I’m just frustrated and angry and upset,” said Amy Deng, 45, who is under self-quarantine with her daughter in their Santa Rosa, Calif., home amid the deadly coronavirus outbreak that’s sickened more than 75,000 globally and killed some 2,000 others. The pair visited Guangzhou, China, over the Chinese New Year, around the same time the novel coronavirus began to ravage the city of Wuhan, considered to be the epicenter of the outbreak. Though Guangzhou is located some 600 miles south of Wuhan, and the two allegedly had no known “high-risk” exposures during their travels, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) assessed Deng and her 8-year-old daughter Daisy’s risk as “medium.” They were forced into 14-day self-quarantine as a result.
coronavirus journalist - HOW DANGEROUS IS CORONAVIRUS? For two weeks, Deng has closed her Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine practice. Daisy, a fourth-grader, cannot attend school; her parents, who are recently divorced, have taken to homeschooling her in the meantime. The 8-year-old has missed birthday parties and has kept up with friends via FaceTime. Neither Deng nor Daisy has shown symptoms of the novel virus, which have been reported to include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Still, county health officials are supervising the pair as they continue to monitor themselves for signs of illness.
coronavirus journalist - Though Deng understands why they are under quarantine — “I agree to be safe. You can never be too cautious,” she told The Mercury News — the mother said she and Daisy have been made to feel like outcasts; the CDC has recommended they “avoid public settings, limit public activities and ‘practice social distancing,’” the outlet reported. “I used to think I was a strong woman, but at some point, I feel like I’m just fragile,” said Deng, noting the quarantine was the cherry on top of a not-so-perfect year. In addition to the divorce from her now ex-husband Charles Johnston in November, the family — who also lost their home, winery and cat in the 2017 Tubbs Fire — also lost a grandparent in October.
