The new virus has continued to sicken and kill people, largely in China, and 11 people have tested positive from the virus in the United States.

China has instituted strict travel restrictions, but the virus continues to emerge elsewhere, as cases have been reported in 28 countries, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
