Mysterious Virus Spreads: Are You At Risk from New SARS-Related Virus?
After killing five people in the Middle East last year, a mysterious new SARS-related virus – dubbed a coronavirus – has infected its first victim of the year in the U.K., country officials confirmed Monday, according to CBS News. The new coronavirus case is the 10th such infection since the virus was first discovered last year.
The infected patient is a resident of the U.K. who had been traveling recently to the Middle East and Pakistant, according to the Christian Post. Victims of the new coronavirus typically exhibit symptoms like “acute breathing problems and kidney failure.”
