The "CO" is for coronavirus, the "VI" is for virus, the "D" is because it's a disease and "19" is for the year it was discovered - 2019.

One patient in Macao and one in Taiwan have been discharged from hospital after recovery.

A 25-second video clip claiming that the virus had infected a person at the hospital has also made its round on social media.

Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Tuesday announced the title: COVID-19. Cases of the virus originating in Wuhan have cropped up worldwide, forcing governments to roll out measures to screen travelers or even restrict arrivals in hopes of preventing outbreaks in their own countries.

The world needs to "wake up and consider this enemy virus as public enemy number one", Tedros warned.

"A virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack", World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters in Geneva.

It might take 18 months before a medication is developed, according to Tedros.

Tedros reiterated the need to use available resources to curb the virus while waiting for the vaccine.

"The development of vaccines and therapeutics is one important part of the research agenda - but it is only one part".

Both roles will now be filled by the deputy head of China's National Health Commission, Wang Hesheng, an ally of President Xi Jinping, who was last week appointed a member of the provincial standing committee.

It was unclear, however, whether the team would be able to visit Wuhan, a city in central China which has been under lockdown after the outbreak was registered in a food and live animal market in the city.

The novel coronavirus disease has an official name.

Ultimately, however, scientists may end up in the same situation they were during the 2002-03 outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) - which died out before a vaccine could be fully developed.

The Coronavirus is a large family of viruses that causes illnesses ranging from the common cold to acute respiratory syndromes, but the virus in China is a novel strain and not seen before.

Since the beginning of the outbreak in December, the virus has spread to about two dozen countries.
