By BBN Staff: The coronavirus is a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
In December 2019, China first reported on the outbreak and most of the deaths have been reported in the Hubei province in Wuhan, China.

Eighteen countries have confirmed cases of this new coronavirus. A total of 4,473 cases have been reported around the world with 4,409 of those cases in China alone.
There have been 5 reported cases in the United States of America and 1 case in Canada.
