The coronavirus sweeping the planet could be the 'Disease X' which experts have warned about, according to a World Health Organization representative.
The name is given to a future, mysterious pathogen which could break out among humans and wreak havoc across the world.
SARS-CoV-2 has infected around 80,000 people in the two months since it emerged at an animal market in Wuhan, China in December.
It has killed more than 2,600 and can cause severe lung damage and trigger multiple organ failure, mainly among old or weak patients.
