Researchers say there are now two types of the same coronavirus infecting people – and most people seem to have caught the most aggressive form of it.

The team of experts from Beijing and Shanghai said 70 per cent of people have caught the most aggressive strain of the virus but that this causes such bad illness that it has struggled to spread since early January.
