			When an outbreak of pneumonia of unknown
			etiology occurred in Wuhan city, Hubei
			Province, China in December of 2019, the
			mystery1 was the nature of the causative
			agent. Because many of the patients had
			visited a fish and wild animal market, the
			possibility of a recurrence of
			severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)
			needed to be investigated2 . Finally, could this
			outbreak of pneumonia be caused by a novel
			coronavirus that was different from those
			causing SARS or
			Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)3 ?
