China: One dead from mysterious new virus, dozens sick

China: One dead from mysterious new virus, dozens sick

Shortness of breath, chills and body aches are associated with more unsafe kinds of coronavirus, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The first case of viral pneumonia in China was diagnosed last month, but based on the current findings of the commission, there is no evidence for human-to-human transmission of the disease.

"Once we get the genetic information, we should be able to conduct our own checks on the patient who is showing symptoms", the KCDC said.

"Preliminary identification of a novel virus in a short period of time is a notable achievement", Galea said in a statement, adding that it "demonstrates China's increased capacity to manage new outbreaks".

In Singapore, the Ministry of Health said on Saturday that a second suspected case - a 26-year-old China national with pneumonia and travel history to Wuhan - was found not to be linked to the pneumonia cluster in Wuhan.

The disease raised an alarm in places like Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Thailand, and the Philippines, where officials said they would set up quarantine zones or scan passengers from China for signs of the disease. Authorities have closed the seafood market. The researchers described the infectious agent as a "coronavirus", identified in a hospitalised person with pneumonia in Wuhan. Some transmit easily from person to person, while others don't. But outside experts have noted that it can be hard to exclude that at this early point in the outbreak. All 739 close contacts, including 419 medical staff, have undergone medical observation and no related cases have been found. World Health Organization said in a statement that further investigations are required to determine the source, modes of transmission and extent of infection caused by the new virus.

Such tools are urgently needed during outbreaks.

"Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that range from the common cold to SARS".

"Please feel free to download, share, use, and analyze this data", wrote Yong-Zhen Zhang of Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center and School of Public Health on the page with the sequence. Both of those outbreaks began with the virus jumping from animals to humans, and accelerated by spreading among people.
