China pneumonia outbreak may be linked to new type of virus: WHO

Scientists have discovered a new strain of coronavirus while investigating the cause of a mysterious pneumonia outbreak that’s sickened dozens of people in China’s Wuhan city. WHO said that since Chinese authorities have eliminated the SARS coronavirus and the MERS one as possible causes, as well as flu, and other common respiratory pathogens, therefore, a novel coronavirus could not be ruled out.
