1. New Coronavirus Appears Again, This Time in England

    Last summer a mysterious virus, similar to SARS, emerged in the Middle East. So far, there had been only nine cases but five of them were fatal. 

    Now doctors in the U.K. have identified the tenth person infected with the deadly virus, the BBC reports.

    Like all other people infected with the coronavirus, the man had been in the Middle East, specifically Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, before catching the disease.
