Vietnam responds to China’s pneumonia outbreak

Wuhan pneumonia outbreak: First case reported outside China

In a previous statement, the commission said it received a report from authorities in Thailand about a sick Chinese woman. The authorities in Wuhan also confirmed that a Chinese woman quarantined in Thailand, the first case of the mystery strain of coronavirus to be detected outside of China, had come from Wuhan.

The U.S. State Department warned Americans in China about an outbreak of pneumonia in the central city of Wuhan believed to be caused by a new strain of coronavirus, and which has killed one person.

The Thai Health Ministry said on Monday that of 12 passengers quarantined since January 3, lab results show that a 61-year-old Chinese woman carried a strain of the coronavirus.

Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam says a meeting of public health officials will be held today to discuss the latest developments.

The wife said she has not had some exposure to the marketplace. Preliminary investigations indicate that most patients who've contracted the virus had contact with the market, though a woman may have contracted the virus from her husband, who worked at the market, the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission said in a public notice.

However, health officials determined that laboratory tests ruled out the possibility of both SARS and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), as well as influenza, bird flu, adenovirus and other common respiratory illnesses.

Trump is seeking reelection and Biden is a potential opponent out of a dozen Democrats seeking their party's nomination. The hiring of Hunter Biden by the gas company has prompted criticism, including from defenders of Trump.

The prospect of human-to-human transmission of a new virus has put Thai authorities on alert.

Still, WHO said it is preparing for the possibility of a wider outbreak.

Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan, from Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection, said there were two family group cases among the recorded cases in Wuhan, including the husband and wife and a separate case of a father, son and nephew living together.

The agency's representative in Thailand said anyone with a fever and cough who had spent time in Wuhan should get checked out by a health worker.

On Tuesday, Maria Van Kerkhove, acting head of the World Health Organization's emerging diseases unit, said that the virus could have limited human-to-human transmission but spread fast. It then spread into over two dozen states, killing almost 800 people.

The origin of the virus has been traced to the Chinese city of Wuhan, where it affected several dozen people who had been to a major meat and seafood market.
