The U.S. announced the first case of the new Coronavirus on Tuesday, January the 21st and have begin health screenings at the airports. This virus is in china yet no one knows where it is actually coming from. The Chinese government says that the new strain of the Coronavirus can spread between people, increasing the possibility of spreading as China enters into the New year travel period.

At least 17 people have died in china and more than 500 have been infected with the ‘Wuhan‘ virus that continues to spread throughout Asia and across the world. This virus is being found all across Asia about 444 are in Hubei, Wuhan, 26 in Guangdong, 10 in Beijing, 6 in Chongqing, 4 in Hainan and plenty more making the estimated total of 540 people infected and nearly close to death. Scientist at Imperial College LondonĀ  recently have estimated more than 4,000 cases on the Coronavirus cases in only Wuhan city alone!

The virus can spread from human contact with animals. It can be transmitted also through human to human contact if infected. The symptoms can feel like a common cold or even the flu with a high fever and cough. There is no specific treatment for this virus, and the symptoms can go away on its own. Currently there is no vaccine to protect our people from this virus at least, not yet. You could reduce this infection by avoiding people who are sick, try to avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If you are sick try to stay home and avoid crowds and those who are sick. Although the symptoms do not sound as sever, the virus is deadly and scientist are currently finding a cure.
