Health officials in China have confirmed that a mysterious new virus that originated in the city of Wuhan can be transmitted from human-to-human, not just from animals to humans.
Axar.az reports citing CGTN that the news comes after a sixth person has died from the virus and at least 15 health care workers have been infected. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called an emergency meeting to discuss the novel coronavirus today.
The virus, dubbed 2019-nCoV, has infected at least 295 people and spread to Thailand, Japan, and South Korea since it was first identified on 31 December 2019, according to Chinese state media outlet CGTN. At least eight people remain in critical condition.
