Novel Coronavirus: At least 26 dead in China; here's everything you need to know about symptoms, risks, precautions
A new strain of virus has managed to take the world by storm - the Novel Coronavirus (n-CoV). As many as 26 cases of death have been reported in China, from where the virus is believed to have spread - more specifically, from a seafood market in central Wuhan city. At least 830 other cases of the outbreak have been reported, even as far as the United States.
The concerns are aggravated especially considering the fact that millions of people have travelled to China in this time of the year for the Lunar New Year celebrations, exacerbating the risk to several degrees as the virus can now potentially travel to anywhere in the world, being transmitted by people from all walks of life across various regions.
