The South Korean health authorities have confirmed that a recent case of a "pneumonia-like" illness in the country is not related to a deadly outbreak in China.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Saturday that the patient, who is Chinese and had recently visited the Chinese city of Wuhan, tested negative for any type of corona virus.
In China, a new type of corona virus appeared last month and has since infected 41 people and killed one.
