A novel virus that has infected hundreds of people in two U.S. states has infected at least 100 others, according to U.N. officials.
The outbreak in the northern Nigerian state of Lagos, the worst on record, has been reported by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.K. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the CDC and the Uyghur Institute of Science in China.
The disease was first identified in a lab at the University of Pennsylvania in September and has spread to more than 200 people in the United States, the U, and China, according the CDC.
The United States confirmed the first case in California on Wednesday, the CDC said.
The other cases were confirmed in Texas, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.
In addition to the United Kingdom, France, Australia and Spain, three U.A.E. countries have reported the virus: Nigeria, the Republic of the Congo and Turkmenistan.
The virus has been linked to a coronavirus, or a virus that can spread through contact with other viruses, that causes pneumonia.
It was first reported in the U., but has been found in at least 17 other countries, according TOEFL test scores.
“I don’t think there is anything like this in the history of the world,” WHO spokesman David Nabarro told reporters on Wednesday.
“This is the first time that we have seen the pandemic as it is emerging.
It is so widespread and the spread has been so fast and that we are seeing it at all levels, we have no idea what it is,” he said.
The World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, is set to discuss a plan for the pandemics response at a meeting on Friday.
The WHO says the virus, which is believed to be a new variant of the virus that causes pneumococcal pneumonia, can cause severe and sometimes fatal pneumonia.
The first case was confirmed in Lagos on Wednesday evening.
It’s not clear if it was an outbreak of the new virus or an older variant that had not spread.WHO has said the new coronaviruses have spread to at least 14 countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and South America.
It said more than 60,000 people have been infected and 3,200 deaths have been linked.
