Travel links to city shut down in bid to curb worst viral outbreak since Sars in 2003
An outbreak of new coronavirus in China has sickened more than 500 people and killed at least a dozen, while spreading to countries around the world.
Snakes -- the Chinese krait and the Chinese cobra -- may be the original source of the newly discovered coronavirus that has triggered an outbreak of a deadly infectious respiratory illness in China this winter.
The officials stressed that the risk to the public remains low.
At least 17 people have died from the mystery illness. The sudden uptick in deaths prompted the authorities to ban most forms of travel from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak, ahead of the biggest travel day of the year.
