04-01 | Mystery illness outbreak in Wuhan, China

An unknown strain of pneumonia has been making people ill in Wuhan, China. 44 people have been infected with the unidentified virus, with 11 of them in a serious condition.

The local government and health authorities have been able to rule out Avian flu, influenza and adenovirus infection.

Many of the patients worked at a seafood market that also traded in live animals like rabbits and birds which has prompted some concerns about a return of the deadly 2002 Sars virus.

While Sars hasn't yet been ruled out, there is no evidence of human-to-human transmission and no medical personnel have become infected.
