A disease epidemic with the potential for pandemic proportions is upon us again. Unlike the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) which caught Liberia and neighboring Sierra Leone and Guinea off guide, there is a worldwide alarm on the emergence of a coronavirus in the city of Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
The Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV), aptly named after the
Chinese city of its origin, is a respiratory illness that has so far caused 26
deaths and 830 cases and rising across China, according to the New York Times
reporting. There has been confirmed cases of the disease in Thailand, Japan,
South Korea and the United States.
The Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV) belongs to the same
family of diseases as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East
Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The disease is known to circulate among animals.
However, there is a high likelihood that the disease has evolved thus spreading
between people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) in Atlanta. Chinese health authorities are reporting that the virus is
adapting and mutating. That is, the virus is changing itself to suit its
environment/host (the infected person).
