‍Preliminary assessment of the international spreading risk associated with the 2019 nCOV outbreak in Wuhan city Starting in December 2019, Chinese health authorities have been closely monitoring a cluster of pneumonia cases in the city of Wuhan, in Hubei Province.

By using the cases detected outside China we are providing estimates of size of the Wuhan outbreak as of January 29th, 2020.​ By using an estimate of 10 days from exposure to detection and an effective population of 20 million people in Wuhan catchment area the estimated median size of the Wuhan outbreak is 31,200 infections [95% CI: 23,400-40,400].

Based on the number of infected individuals detected in Wuhan (China) the model estimates two main quantities: Relative importation risk: for each location Y, the platform evaluates the probability P(Y) that a single infected individual is traveling from the index areas to that specific destination Y.

Real time situation reports on nCov within China based on digital data streams, a Chinese online community for physicians and health care professionals, provides real-time situation reports of  the 2019 nCov oubreak in China.
