The World Health Organization says there has been some human-to-human transmission of the mysterious new pneumonia-like virus that recently broke out in China.
The WHO says it's preparing for the possibility of a wider outbreak because with the situation still in its early stages, they don't yet have a clear clinical picture.
The organization says it sees a lot of similarities between the new virus and SARS or MERS, which could help in developing vaccines or treatments.
