Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably already heard about the outbreaks of coronavirus across the globe, particularly the pneumonia outbreak it caused in Wuhan, China, in 2019.

Health experts searching for the source of the 2019-nCoV or the Wuhan coronavirus are baffled. This particular strain, also dubbed the novel coronavirus, is a type of virus that has never been encountered before.
First identified in the mid-1960s, coronaviruses were named for their unusual crown-like shape. These viruses usually cause respiratory illnesses, such as the common cold.
Many of the infected patients in Wuhan, China, worked or shopped at a wholesale seafood market that also sold live and freshly slaughtered animals. Experts believe this is how the virus crossed to humans from an animal host.
Wuhan coronavirus symptoms include cough, fever and difficulty breathing. As a patient’s symptoms worsen, their condition can lead to pneumonia, kidney failure and even death.

The CDC warns that the public should make the necessary preparations since this won’t be the last case of infection. To date, there are 300 confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV, with six reported deaths.
Authorities from China noted that 2019-nCoV can also be transmitted from human to human. The majority of cases are in China, but cases have also been reported in Japan and in South Korea.
