Dr. Mike Catton the co-deputy director of the Doherty Institute, confirming it with three words.

"We got it," he said. "Fantastic."

"We've planned for an incident like this for many, many years and that's really why we were able to get an answer so quickly," said Dr Mike Catton of the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity.

It's reported that a laboratory in China had successfully grown the virus but had released only the genome sequence, not the sample itself.
