Emerging Viruses without Borders: The Wuhan Coronavirus (2020/01/22)

The recently emerged coronavirus in Wuhan, China has claimed at least 6 lives as of January 22 and infected hundreds if not thousands of individuals. The situation has drawn international attention, including from the virology community. We applaud the rapid release to the public of the genome sequence of the new virus by Chinese virologists, but we also believe that increased transparency on disease reporting and data sharing with international colleagues are crucial for curbing the spread of this newly emerging virus to other parts of the world.
