LONDON (February 11, 2013)--The world's 10th known case of a new coronavirus, a mysterious disease related to SARS and first identified last year, has been found in Britain.
The patient, a U.K. resident who had been in the Middle East and Pakistan, was in the intensive care unit of a Manchester hospital, according to a statement Monday from Britain's Health Protection Agency.
In past cases, patients' symptoms have included acute breathing problems and kidney failure.
There is no proof the virus spreads easily between humans, but experts suspect humans can catch it from such animals as bats or camels.
All the previous cases have had links to the Middle East, but last year, the World Health Organization said the virus was probably more widespread and recommended countries test anyone with unexplained pneumonia for the virus.
