The pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, Hubei province, China has been a rapidly moving and fluid news story with new information coming out on a daily basis.

In this video, I look at the most recent information as of January 12 from the World Health Organization and Chinese health authorities.

In addition, a number of scientists have discussed the virus on Twitter and I look at some of these statements.

I close it out looking at an article that asks some important questions about this “a lot still unknown” viral outbreak.
