Coronavirus is believed to have originated in Wuhan City, in Hubei province, China, and so far has killed more than 1,000 people and sickened over 43,000 in mainland China alone. Despite efforts by the Chinese government to quarantine the virus, cases have also been confirmed across Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America.

As of Tuesday, there have been 13 confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States and one confirmed death of an American. In addition to those patients, US health officials are currently monitoring more than 100 people across the country for the virus. Those infected with coronavirus are exhibiting pneumonia-like symptoms, including fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, has maintained the position that the public risk from coronavirus in the US right now is still considered low. Messonnier said the strategy behind the US response to coronavirus is to slow it down, not stop it.

"It's important to know that this strategy is not meant to catch every single traveler returning from China with novel coronavirus," said Messonnier, at a press briefing last Monday. "Given the nature of this virus and how it's spreading, that would be impossible. But working together, we can catch the majority of them."

Nonetheless, financial markets are on edge amid fears of a global pandemic. The DOW Industrial has crashed and rebounded several times over the last two weeks, and Chinese stocks have plunged as the coronavirus outbreak worsens.

Individual technology companies are also reporting uncertainty surrounding the Chinese market and the impact of the coronavirus. Apple noted in its first-quarter financial results that the coronavirus outbreak in China is affecting operations, and Google has closed offices and limited business travel. There are also concerns that the broader technology supply chain in China will be disrupted by the virus.

The upcoming Mobile World Congress technology conference in Barcelona, Spain is also questionable. A number of high profile companies have already pulled out of the event -- including Amazon, Facebook, Cisco, Intel, Sony, Nvidia, LG and Ericsson -- and event organizers have banned all attendees from Hubei province.

Chinese man argues against deportation from Canada, citing virus .
A Chinese man has argued -- unsuccessfully -- that he should not be deported from Canada because he faced serious risk of harm from the novel coronavirus in his native country. Under Canadian law, a deportation can be blocked if a court finds there is a significant risk of harm for a person sent to a particular destination. Canada already halted deportations to the Chinese city of Wuhan and surrounding Hubei province -- the epicenter of the epidemic -- but not to other parts of China.In court last week, government lawyers argued -- and the judge agreed -- that the risk of infection in Guangdong province, where Cao was headed, was low.
