According to WHO report  few new cases of pneumonia were detected in Hubei province of China in December 2019. The virus seen in these pneumonia cases was not one of the previously known viruses. After a week of studies, it was identified that this was a new type of virus belonging to the family Coronavirus. It is a family of viruses that include the common cold and other viruses responsible for pneumonia such as SARS and MERS. For now this virus is being called 2019 – nCoV.

  2. Covering one’s mouth when coughing or sneezing with a flexed elbow or a clean tissue this issue should immediately be thrown away and should not be reused
  3. Close contact with anyone who has fever and cough should be avoided
  4. If one has fever and cough and difficulty breathing you should seek medical attention at the earliest and any travel history should be shared with the healthcare personnel
  5. One should be cautious when visiting crowded places specifically in areas where cases of the novel coronavirus have been detected.
  6. Direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces which are in contact with live animals should be avoided.
  7. The consumption of raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided.
