More cases of a new respiratory virus emerged ahead of Lunar New Year celebrations this weekend, Chinese authorities said Monday, who confirmed the disease can spread between humans. The strain of viral pneumonia has killed three people and infected more than 200 others since it surfaced last month in Wuhan in central China. Health authorities traced the virus to a seafood market, but the national health commission has failed to identify the source.
