Amidst the global crisis that was triggered by the coronavirus pandemic, it seems that there’s more trouble ahead as if the disasters from COVID-19 weren’t enough.
A deadlier unknown pneumonia
Deseret.com online publication notes that the Chinese embassy in Kazakhstan has warned of a new deadly “unknown pneumonia” and it seems that this one might be deadlier than the novel coronavirus, The South China Morning Post reports.
It’s been recently revealed that the embassy issued a warning to Chinese citizens in Kazakhstan about pneumonia. Kazakhstan has seen a spike in cases recently.
“The death rate of this disease is much higher than the novel coronavirus. The country’s health departments are conducting comparative research into the pneumonia virus, but have yet to identify the virus,” the embassy said.
“It’s only pneumonia”
Kazakhstani officials and the media as well said it’s only pneumonia. The Chinese embassy described it an “unknown pneumonia.”
But we’ve already been through this a while ago when we kept hearing from officials and the media that the novel coronavirus is “just the flu” and we all know how that played out in the end.

What’s new regarding the novel coronavirus
As you already know by now, the world is struggling to cope with the terrible effects of the new coronavirus and the disease that it triggers.
Meanwhile, WHO seems to be boosting the pressure from experts about risk from aerosol transmission these days.
The Guardian reported not too long ago that the WHO acknowledged new evidence that the coronavirus is spreading more widely in the air than it was previously suggested.
Other than this, there are all kinds of debates about immunization taking place, and some even said that a vaccine could not turn out to be successful due to the lack of enough immunization in the US.
On the other hand, some good news gives us hope that we can tackle the virus even without a vaccine.
