SEOUL, Jan. 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Wednesday reported a suspected case of a mysterious pneumonia-like illness that has been spreading in China, the public health and safety agency said.

According to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC), a 36-year-old Chinese woman who had visited the city of Wuhan in Hubei Province showed symptoms of the illness.

The patient has been isolated and is undergoing treatment after going into a local hospital on Tuesday.

China has been grappling with people who have shown pneumonia-like symptoms such as fever, throat swelling and coughing in recent weeks.
