Many of the first known cases clustered

around a seafood market in Wuhan, China,

a city of 11 million and a transportation hub.

 

 

 

 

Four cases grew to dozens

by the end of December.

 

 

 

 

Doctors knew only

that the sick people had viral pneumonia

that did not respond to the usual treatments.

 

 

 

 

The true size of the outbreak

was much larger even then

— an invisible network of nearly 1,000 cases,

or perhaps several times more.

(Estimates from Trevor Bedford,

University of Washington,

and Lauren Gardner,

Johns Hopkins University)

 

 

 

 

With each patient

infecting two or three others on average,

even a perfect response

may not have contained the spread.

 

But Chinese officials did not alert

the public to the risks in December.

 

It wasn’t until Dec. 31

that they alerted the World Health Organization

and released a statement — and a reassurance.

 

“The disease is preventable and controllable,”

the government said.

 

 

 

 

The timing of the outbreak

could not have been worse.

 

Hundreds of millions of people

were about to travel back

to their hometowns

for the Lunar New Year.

 

Here’s how people moved around on Jan. 1,

according to a Times analysis of data

published by Baidu and major telecoms,

which tracked the movements

of million of cell phones.

 

 

 

 

At least 175,000 people left Wuhan

just on that day, we found.

 

 

 

 

The departures from Wuhan

accelerated over the next three weeks.

 

About 7 million people left in January,

before travel was restricted.

 

 

 

 

Thousands of travelers were infected.

 

 

 

 

By the time Chinese officials acknowledged

the risk of human-to-human transmission on Jan. 21,

local outbreaks were already seeded

in Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities.

 

 

 

 

Two days later,

the authorities locked down Wuhan,

and many cities followed in the next few weeks.

 

Travel across China nearly stopped.

 

 

 

 

But local outbreaks

were already growing quickly.

 

 

 

 

As the outbreak

moved across China in early January,

international travel continued as normal.

 

 

 

 

Thousands of people

flew out of Wuhan to cities around the world.

 

 

 

 

Over 900 people went to New York

every month on average,

based on recent trends …

 

 

 

 

… over 2,200 to Sydney …

 

 

 

 

… and over 15,000 people went to Bangkok,

the most popular destination.

 

 

 

 

That’s where the first known overseas case

appeared in mid-January,

a 61-year-old woman

who traveled from Wuhan to Bangkok

despite having a fever,

headache and a sore throat.

 

 

 

 

Other early cases turned up

in Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul and Hong Kong.

 

The U.S. confirmed its first case near Seattle.

 

 

 

 

About 85 percent of infected travelers

went undetected, researchers believe.

 

But they were still contagious.

 

 

 

 

It was only at the end of January

that Wuhan was placed under a lockdown

and airlines started canceling flights.

 

By Jan. 31,

when the United States announced

it would shut down entry

from China for non-Americans,

travel out of Wuhan had basically stopped.

 

 

 

 

It was too late.

 

Outbreaks were already growing

in over 30 cities across 26 countries,

most seeded by travelers from Wuhan.

 

 

 

 

The virus started spreading locally,

moving easily in confined spaces

like churches and restaurants,

and infecting people who had not traveled to China

— the start of a pandemic.

 

 

 

 

By March 1,

thousands of cases were reported

in Italy, Iran and South Korea.

 

China was no longer

the main driver of the outbreak.

 

 

 

 

In fact,

as China started systematically testing,

tracing and isolating patients,

new cases there declined dramatically,

showing that it was possible to slow the virus.

 

Similar measures slowed the spread

in Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea.

 

 

 

 

In the United States,

where testing has lagged,

President Trump suspended

most travel from Europe.

 

“The virus will not have a chance against us,”

he said.

 

 

 

 

But by then,

the virus had a secure foothold.

 

It continued to spread locally

throughout parts of Seattle,

New York City and across the country,

once again outpacing efforts to stop it.

which represents the highest safety risk.
