Coronavirus: Signs the new Sars-like virus can spread between people
Health officials in the UK believe they have the strongest evidence yet that a new respiratory illness similar to the deadly Sars virus can spread from person to person.

Cases of the infection may come from contact with animals. However, if the virus can spread between people it poses a much more serious threat.

One man in the UK is thought to have caught the infection from his father.

However, officials say the threat to the whole population remains very low.

None in the USA that they have reported yet. But might be being misdiagnosed as flu.

Questions and answers - novel coronavirus 2012
How many new cases have been reported to date?

This new coronavirus was first identified in September 2012 in a patient who died from a severe respiratory infection in June 2012. As of 12 February 2013 there have been 11 cases detected globally. However, this is a dynamic situation and more cases may be reported. For the latest case updates please see WHO [external link].

What are coronaviruses?

Human coronaviruses were first identified in the mid 1960s and are named for the crown-like projections on the surface of the virus. They are a group of viruses causing respiratory infections in humans and animals. There are 3 main sub-groupings of coronaviruses, known as alpha, beta and gamma.

What type of coronavirus is this?

This is a new subtype/strain of coronavirus, first identified in the Netherlands in 2012. The virus identified by the Health Protection Agency's virus reference laboratories at Colindale is genetically very similar to the strain identified in the Netherlands. The virus identified in the UK has now been fully sequenced and detailed analysis indicates that the nearest relatives are bat coronaviruses. Since only a handful of cases have been reported, there is limited information on clinical impact, transmission and severity at this stage.......

Novel coronavirus infection – update
13 FEBRUARY 2013 - The United Kingdom (UK) has informed WHO of another confirmed case of infection with the novel coronavirus (NCoV). The patient is a UK resident and a relative of the case announced on 11 February 2013.

The latest confirmed case does not have any recent travel history outside the UK and is currently hospitalized in an intensive care unit. It is understood that this patient has pre-existing medical conditions that may have increased susceptibility to respiratory infections.

Confirmed NCoV in a person without recent travel history indicates that infection was acquired in the UK. To date, evidence of person-to-person transmission has been limited. Although this case is suggestive of person-to-person transmission, on the basis of current evidence, the risk of sustained person-to-person transmission appears to be very low.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) is following up on all close contacts (family and healthcare workers) who may have been exposed to either of these two new confirmed cases.

As of 13 February 2013, a total of 11 confirmed cases of human infection with NCoV have been notified to WHO, with no change in the number of fatalities i.e., five deaths since April 2012......

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34428207

Panic over the deadly Sars virus escalated last night.
Toronto became the first Western city declared a no-go zone in an unprecedented global health warning.
But while Britons have been advised not to go there, the Government here is doing nothing to screen travellers arriving from the Canadian city - or any other affected area.
