China mystery illness could be new virus

Chinese report says Wuhan outbreak may be from new coronavirus WHO warns NEW coronavirus linked to lethal SARS bug could be behind Chinese pneumonia flare-up

A preliminary investigation has now identified respiratory disease as a new type of coronavirus, Chinese state media reported on Thursday, citing investigators.

People living in Wuhan have said there is scant information in the media about the outbreak, in a country where media outlets are strictly controlled by the ruling Chinese Communist Party.

Ren Ruihong, former head of the medical assistance department at the Chinese Red Cross, said she too has her doubts about the reported "absence" of human-to-human transmission in Wuhan.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said that it has confirmed the first suspected case of mysterious pneumonia-like illness that has been terrorizing China.

The outbreak of pneumonia comes just a few weeks before China's busiest travel season of the year, when millions of people take buses, trains and planes for Lunar New Year. According to the report, he said the next steps are to proceed with epidemiologic and clinical investigations. Since the current disease is not easily transmitted between people, they may have been infected by animals in the market.

So far, none of the 59 patients infected with pneumonia have died though seven are seriously ill, according to Wuhan's health commission.

The pneumonia-like disease that has broken out in China's Wuhan province has been identified as a new kind of coronavirus, similar to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), according to a team of experts from the mainland.

"And the longer they wait, the more likely the scientific community will go from a positive response to a negative response, in terms of how China is handling this outbreak", he said. The food market in South China Seafood City will be suspended and investigated, said the Wuhan Health Commission.

However, Gauden Galea, the World Health Organization representative to China, said "further investigations" were required to "determine the source, modes of transmission, extent of infection and countermeasures implemented".

Xu said more research on the new virus is needed.

She said, however, that it looks like virus confirmation is clear of a coronavirus not found before in humans. "12%2C-authorities-say" class="local_link" target="_blank">ruled out the possibility that SARS and MERS were responsible for city's infections.

The health agency said she is now doing well and recovering, but that she was still kept in quarantine as a precaution while more tests are being conducted.

A big question is whether the virus will spread further, Koopmans said. Reports from Wuhan suggest no human-to-human transmission, which could be good news and wouldn't be out of the question. "MERS is really not that transmissible either, outside hospitals".

"We don't give interviews here", the employee said.
