In December of 2019, doctors in China identified a coronavirus that has begun to spread to humans.
The virus is thought to have originated in a meat market in Wuhan, where it spread from live animals to humans.
Over 50 people have died from the virus, all in mainland China, and there are more than 2,000 cases in China.
Because so many are traveling for the Lunar New Year, people are now being screened for the virus at Chinese airports.
The city of Wuhan is now under partial quarantine.
As of Jan. 26, there are over 40 cases in 13 countries outside of China.
Symptoms include fever, fatigue, cough, and myalgia. Ultimately, the virus can cause pneumonia.
Symptoms can take up to about 14 days to manifest, making this a sinister virus.
Because little is known about it, the virus has caused wide-spread panic.
Scientists and doctors are still trying to learn more about the virus, while governments around the world take precautions.
