New virus kills 22 in less than a year
Issued on: Modified:
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has voiced deep concern over the development of a virus that has killed 22 people in less than a year. This novel coronavirus NCoV, also known as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus, is from the same family as the one that caused the 2003 Sars outbreak, which killed about 770 people. The WHO's Gregor Hartl comments.
