Cells in a coronavirus are not unusual, according to Michelle Barron, the medical director of Infection, Prevention, and Control at UCHealth's University of Colorado Hospital on the Anschutz Medical Campus. "It's actually a cold virus," Barron said. "It's one of the most common cold viruses that we see every year." The new coronavirus strain, yet to be named, originated in Wuhan, China where hundreds have been infected. "It's an evolving story in terms of what we expect to see with this," she said.
