What if 2019-nCoV becomes pandemic? 😷

In December 2019, Chinese authorities announced an outbreak of the new virus in the city of Wuhan. By performing Real time PCR and Next Generation Sequencing on the samples taken from patients, it has been determined that the virus belongs to the family of Coronaviruses.
