27 April 2020
"In December 2019, a series of pneumonic cases of unknown cause emerged in Wuhan, a large city of 11 million in central China, with a clinical presentation resembling viral pneumonia. The number of cases increased rapidly. The overwhelming majority of the hospitalised patients had been exposed to the Huanan seafood market; therefore, it was first believed, as on many occasions in the past, that coronavirus was spread by animal-to-human virus transmission. By 9 January 2020, the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention succeeded in identifying the virus responsible for the outbreak as a novel coronavirus named COVID-19."
