The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a warning to U.S. travelers against making any unnecessary trips to South Korea. This is due to the outbreak of the Wuhan Coronavirus and the number of cases growing in the country.
“A novel coronavirus is causing an outbreak of respiratory illness (COVID-19) in South Korea,” the CDC warning reads. “Illness with this virus has ranged from mild to severe. Signs and symptoms of infection include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Sore throat also has been reported in some patients. Some patients also have reported diarrhea without other symptoms,” reads the CDC’s warning.
