A new virus has emerged, US authorities are screening passengers from China at the airport



At three US airports, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has sent one hundred employees to screen travelers coming from the Chinese city of Wuhan, CNN reports.
CDC staff will routinely screen Chinese travelers to see if they have fever or any of the other symptoms of a mysterious new virus that has killed two and infected dozens in China so far.

The CDC says there is no reason to panic



It is an unusual move, and the last time the CDC did routine passenger health checks was in 2014 because of Ebola. But the CDC's Dr. Martin Centron said there was no reason to panic.

So far, two people have died from this virus in China

So far, two people have died from this virus, officially called the new coronavirus in 2019. Another 45 are infected in China, and some have contracted pneumonia. Coronaviruses, which include SARS, are common in many animals. Sometimes, but rarely, they attack people.

Chinese authorities have reported that most patients in Wuhan were in large fish markets and markets. But some were not infected, suggesting that there may have been a person-to-person transmission. But as things stand at the moment, it seems that there has not been much expansion.

The new virus is thought to be different from SARS

To find out more about the virus itself, scientists are scrutinizing SARS. During 2003, SARS expanded to more than 20 countries in Asia, Europe, North and South America. More than 8,000 people fell ill worldwide and 774 died. SARS spread through close human contacts like kissing.

Centron thinks this new virus could be different from SARS and that most travelers arriving from Wuhan will be healthy. If some have symptoms of infection, they will be sent to local hospitals.
