WHO is concerned about the spread of coronavirus among people who have not visited China and who have not been in contact with infected people.

Coronavirus has been known since 1965. It was first identified in 1975, and among the population, it is found quite often - it affects animals and humans. The cause of outbreaks of the disease, as it was in 2003 in China with SARS, and in 2015 with the acute respiratory syndrome, was mutated coronaviruses. Pneumonia in China in 2019 is also a coronavirus. New mutated coronaviruses are very toxigenic.

The 2019-nCoV virus has not been fully studied. The source of the outbreak and the extent of its spread in China have not yet been established. Despite the continuing lack of knowledge about the disease, it is relatively easy for most patients identified to date, and only about 20% of infected people are in serious condition, according to the official website of the World Health Organization (WHO).

The incubation period lasts from 2 to 14 days. That is, from the moment of infection to the moment of illness, two weeks can pass. The new virus is characterized by dry cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, fever up to 39 degrees and manifestations from the gastrointestinal tract - vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea. The virus affects the upper and lower respiratory tract with the development of severe pneumonia.

Since the spread of the disease in 2019 in Wuhan, China, More than 81,000 persons have been infected and the death toll of over 2,500. Diagnosed persons are subjected to mandatory hospitalization as the treatment is mostly antiviral.

The world health organization announced that it is quite difficult to determine the number of persons that are infected with the new crown virus, and at the moment, there is no certain figure or percentage to put that into the record. The only vivid number is of those that have been killed by the deadly coronavirus. Therefore, it is difficult to present any definitive presentation about the overall mortality rate of the new crown virus, as enunciated by the World Health Organization.

The number of coronavirus cases in the US stood at 71 early Sunday, according to the Center for Disease Control officials. The majority of those cases 44 were patients who caught the virus aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship. Currently, if you live in the U.S. the risk of getting the virus remains very low, but public health officials say there will likely be outbreaks in the United States. So this is a good time to review your emergency game plan.There have been different measures created just to make sure that the virus is contained to a reasonable extent.
