The World Health Organization says at least a dozen people have become sick with the new virus called, “Novel Corona-Virus”.

Symptoms include an acute respiratory infection, fever and a cough as well as pneumonia and kidney failure.

So far, cases have been in other countries but experts say they wouldn’t be surprised if it appeared in the U.S. through travel.
