Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), a disease in the same family as the new coronavirus, left nearly 650 people dead in mainland China and Hong Kong in 2002-2003.China has struggled to contain the current virus despite having placed some 56 million people under effective lockdown in Hubei and its provincial capital, Wuhan.Other cities far from the epicentre have also taken measures to keep people indoors, limiting the number of individuals who can leave their home.Friday’s death of a 34-year-old Wuhan doctor who was punished for raising the alarm about the virus in December sparked an outpouring of grief and anger over the government’s handling of the crisis.The virus has spread to two dozen countries, prompting several governments to ban arrivals from China and urge their citizens to avoid travelling to the country. Some have recommended their citizens leave China.Major airlines have suspended flights to and from China.At least 61 people on board a cruise ship off Japan have tested positive for the new coronavirus, with thousands of passengers and crew facing a two-week quarantine.Topics : The number of deaths from China’s new coronavirus epidemic jumped to 717 on Saturday, surpassing the toll from the SARS outbreak on the mainland and Hong Kong almost two decades ago.Another 81 people died from the virus in central Hubei province, where the disease emerged in December, according to the regional health commission.In its daily update, the commission also confirmed another 2,841 new cases. There are now more than 34,000 confirmed infections across the country.
The council voted unanimously at Wednesday night’s meeting to create the committee. Meanwhile, the council is taking another step to explore cityhood. Two members of the West Ranch Town Council, plus one from the Castaic Town Council, will attend a two-day seminar in Sacramento this month dedicated to studying the formation of new cities. County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich will pay the tuition for a couple of the town council members attending the seminar. Antonovich is also funding the $25,000 initial study looking at cityhood for the area. West Ranch Town Council member Ron Mechsner said the goal of the committee is to get more people talking about the area’s future. Mechsner said he only learned about the $25,000 study when Bossert announced it at last month’s meeting. STEVENSON RANCH – The West Ranch Town Council wants more residents involved in exploring the creation of their own city and is forming a committee to talk about the area’s future. About 15 to 25 residents would serve on the Citizens Advisory Group. As a $25,000 study on the possibility of forming a city from the communities of Stevenson Ranch, Westridge, Castaic and Val Verde gets under way, committee members will talk to residents about the study and get feedback, members of the West Ranch Town Council said. “We’re looking to get a very diverse, interested group of people who can analyze information,” Councilman Dave Bossert said. “We don’t know if there’s enough dollars and cents here to form a city,” he said. “So let’s get that information on the table.” The West Ranch Town Council asked anyone interested in sitting on the Citizens Advisory Group to attend the council’s March7 meeting. The committee is open to residents of all the areas proposed for cityhood. [email protected] (661) 257-5253160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
