The Coronavirus: An Unknown

According to the CDC the coronavirus (nCoV) is a new deadly respiratory virus which was first identified in Wuhan, 

Hubei Province, China. It was thought that the virus originated at a large animal and seafood market which suggested that it was an animal to human virus, but as the virus continues to spead it is now thought to be a human to human virus.  

According to the CDC it is unclear how transmission occurs from person to person. It is thought that it is transmitted through saliva droplets through a sneeze or a cough. It is also unknown whether it is transmitted though surface contact. 

Unfortunately there isn't a vaccine for coronavirus yet and there probably won't be one until at least the summer of 2020.
