The new strain of coronavirus is in the same family as the Severe Acute Respiratory syndrome (SARS) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), originated in Wuhan, the largest city in central China, and was first recorded outside China, in Thailand early January. The Japanese man who tested positive to the infection is believed to have been to the Chinese city of Wuhan recently.
The World Health Organization (WHO) while giving a global warning to Hospitals said the new virus could spread as there are evidences of human-to-human transmission.
The acting head of WHO’s emerging diseases unit, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, while giving the warning said “This is something on our radar, it is possible, we need to prepare ourselves.”
