The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a deadly virus warning Thursday. The CDC warned state and local health officials about potential infections from a deadly virus previously unseen in humans. The virus is a coronavirus, part of the same family of viruses as the common cold and the deadly outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome that first emerged in Asia in 2003. Symptoms of infection with this new virus include severe acute respiratory illness with fever and shortness of breath.
