On 31 December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) China Country Office was informed of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province of China. On 7 January 2020, the causative pathogen was identified as a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The majority of these cases were linked to a seafood, poultry and live wildlife market in Wuhan City, suggesting that the novel coronavirus has a possible animal origin. According to WHO, as of 29 January 2020, 6065 cases have been reported globally; 5997 cases and 132 deaths were reported in China; 68 cases were reported from outside China (in 15 countries). It should be noted that the number of cases is increasing; for the latest update refer to https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019 . The incubation period is currently estimated to be up to 14 days.
