LONDON (AP) - British officials have found the world's 10th known case of a new coronavirus, a mysterious disease related to SARS and first identified last year.
The patient, a U.K. resident who had been in the Middle East and Pakistan, is in the intensive care unit of a Manchester hospital, according to a statement Monday from Britain's Health Protection Agency.
Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that are behind ailments including the common cold and SARS. SARS killed about 800 people in a global epidemic in 2003.
In past cases, patients with the new coronavirus had symptoms including acute breathing problems and kidney failure.
There is no proof the virus spreads easily between humans, but experts suspect humans can catch it from animals such 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.
It recommended countries test anyone with unexplained pneumonia for the virus.
