The virus spread from person to person, but it mainly first attacks the respiratory system of the animals then from animals largely by the consumption of animal meat it reaches the human body and causes cole and pneumonia and finally a possible death. This virus very unknown and not easy to identify due to the common symptoms it shares that make people who even suffering from this virus hard realize that they already contaminated with the disease, this also makes it challenging for authorities to find out the exact number of sufferers from the virus.
This is a time for Chinese people to celebrate their "Lunar New Year" the largest migration of people across the country, its the most celebrated spectacle for the Chinese people, where millions of people make tips across china when to meet their loved ones, that is likely making things worse and authorities now in fear that due to this massive migration there is possibly spreading of the virus to other provinces of China and already cases reported even in the Captial Beijing.
