As UNIAN reported earlier, the previously unknown coronavirus strain is believed to have emerged from an animal market in central city of Wuhan, with cases now detected as far away as the United States.

On January 23, China stepped up measures to contain a virus with public transport suspensions in 10 cities, temples shutting, and the rapid construction of a new hospital to treat those infected.

Moreover, the World Health Organisation (WHO) on Thursday declared the new coronavirus an emergency for China but stopped short of declaring the epidemic of international concern.
