The number of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus has already overtaken the total of SARS infections recorded during the 2003 outbreak in China, official figures show.

During the SARS epidemic 17 years ago, 5,327 people on the Chinese mainland were confirmed to have been infected. Top virologist Dr Guan Yi has warned that the new virus could be “ten times worse than SARS.”

The SARS virus originated in China in 2002. The NHS website reports that experts believe a strain “usually only found in small mammals mutated, enabling it to infect humans.”
