An outbreak originating in the central China city of Wuhan, which was identified by the World Health Organization as a novel coronavirus in January 2020, has drawn comparisons to the 2003 SARS outbreak, which infected more than 8,000 people around the world, was lethal to nearly a tenth of that number, and had a prolonged negative effect on travel and tourism.
