Coronavirus: pneumonia more lethal than COVID-19 was a Chinese translation error

Who follows the unfolding of the facts related to the pandemic of coronavirus (COVID-19), followed the emergence of news related to an alleged new mysterious disease that was released by the Chinese embassy, ​​with the first registration taking place in Kazakhstan.

According to the alert, which aimed to warn his compatriots in Kazakh territory, this alleged unknown pneumonia would have caused more than 1,700 deaths since the beginning, generating a warning signal in the world due to the problems already faced with the current one, which already accumulates more than 560 thousand deaths around the planet.

Fortunately, however, the alert given by the Chinese embassy was in fact a mistake, generated by the erroneous translation of a statement from Kazakhstan, where common pneumonia was talked about (like so many others that we experience without major problems every year).

According to Wenxin Fan, a Wall Street Journal journalist who specializes in covering the Asian region, this “careless translation” included the word “unknown”, something that some media outlets “did not bother to check”.

It is worth noting, however, that the news in question has nothing to do with the new variant of influenza A (H1N2) that was recently identified by Chinese scholars and has already had a record in Brazilian territory, with official confirmation from FioCruz.
