Taipei, Jan. 16 (CNA) Taiwan's Centers for Disease Control on Thursday upgraded its travel alert for Wuhan, citing the possibility of limited human-to-human transmission of a new type of coronavirus in the eastern China city.
So far, China has confirmed 41 cases of the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), reporting one death and six patients in critical condition.
The virus has also been reported this week in two other countries — Thailand, where the patient was a tourist from Wuhan, and in Japan, where one case was confirmed Thursday.
The outbreak in China is associated with animals sold at the Huanan Seafood City market in Wuhan.
