Coronavirus: 100,000 may already be infected, experts warn

The Guardian UK - Dom, 26/01/2020 - 22:47

UK government urged to reassure public that NHS is ready for cases within days

About 100,000 people could be infected with the new coronavirus around the world, experts have warned, as the UK government faced calls to reassure people that the NHS is ready to deal with any British cases within days.

Prof Neil Ferguson, a public health expert at Imperial College, said his “best guess” was that there were 100,000 affected by the virus even though there are only 2,000 confirmed cases so far, mostly in the city of Wuhan in China where the virus first appeared.

Starwatch: find a sliver of moon, guided by brilliant Venus

The Guardian UK - Dom, 26/01/2020 - 22:30

Enjoy the beauty of a tiny young crescent moon as it approaches conjunction with Venus, the brightest planet

Observers in both hemispheres have the opportunity to see an extremely thin crescent moon this evening and tomorrow. Such tiny lunar slivers are extraordinarily beautiful but often hard to locate. Although this one takes place in the constellation of Aquarius, the water bearer, which is notoriously devoid of bright stars to act as wayfinders, Venus, the brightest planet, is helpfully on hand to guide our view. From London, look south-west this evening. The chart shows the view at 18:00GMT. From Sydney, look due south. The moon will be lower than Venus and just 7% of its surface will be illuminated. If you do not manage to catch a glimpse of the moon tonight then don’t worry, tomorrow is also good. Over the next 24 hours, the moon will have drawn level with Venus in the sky, and 13% of its surface will now be illuminated. Given clear skies, this conjunction is really worth making the effort to see. It will be a picture perfect end to the first month of the year.
