China ramped up measures to contain a virus that has killed 26 people and infected more than 800, suspending public transport in 10 cities, shutting temples over the Lunar New Year and even closing the Forbidden City and part of the Great Wall.

The outbreak in China of a new form of coronavirus, the same family of virus as SARS, has raised fears of an global pandemic, like the one that killed almost 800 people in 2003 and 2004.

On Dec. 31, the World Health Organization was informed of a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown cause linked to a seafood market in Wuhan, China.

Health officials fear the transmission rate could accelerate as hundreds of millions of Chinese travel at home and overseas during week-long holidays for the Lunar New Year, which began on Saturday.

As Wuhan slides into isolation, pharmacies have begun to run out of supplies and hospitals have been flooded with nervous residents.

While the city of Wuhan, China is in the midst of a coronavirus outbreak, a video posted to Twitter Friday, appears to show Wuhan's Red Cross Hospital overcrowded with patients.

As for locals of Wuhan, those who are out in public in Wuhan must wear a mask. The first stateside case of the virus was reported in Washington state.

The third case was a relative of one of the first two and one of the cases, a 48-year-old man, had returned from a trip to China two days ago which included a stop in Wuhan.

"To address the insufficiency of existing medical resources", Wuhan is constructing a 1,000-bed hospital modelled after the Xiaotangshan SARS hospital in Beijing, local authorities said.

The outbreak has prompted authorities in at least eight Chinese cities to impose travel restrictions and cancel public events to curb the spread.

"The spread of the virus has not been cut off ..."

Dozens of excavators and trucks were filmed working on the site by state broadcaster CCTV.

Shanghai Disney Resort will remain closed until further notice, starting January 25, as a response to the spread of the disease, according to Reuters The closure comes at one of the busiest times of the year for the park, when China is on a seven-day holiday to celebrate the Lunar New Year. "We will announce the reopening date upon confirmation". The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. "In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!"
