Coronovirus started from a Chinese seafood market and WHO confirmed about this virus effected more than 9,800 people in Wuhan, China.
There are chances the virus will spread to other countries like US, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Canada and South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and Finland.
Many of the Saudi Nationals and Expats children have been studying in China for Medical Courses available in China.
The Wuhan market in China was shut-down for inspection and cleaning on January 1 2020, but by then it appears that the Coronavirus was already starting to spread beyond the market itself.
