Deadly mysterious virus claims more victims

The World Health Organization confirms two more people have died from the “coronovirus” bringing the death toll to eleven.

The latest victims are a man from the United Arab Emirates and a British man who had traveled to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

The “coronavirus” first appeared last year in Saudi Arabia and since then, 17 cases have been confirmed.

“Coronavirus” aggressively attacks the lower respiratory system and it’s a distant cousin of the “SARS” virus that killed 800 people in 2002 and 2003.
