Novel coronavirus/COVID-19

March 2, 2020

The novel coronavirus (which causes a disease known as COVID-19) has infected some people in the United States. Most of those cases have been associated with travel to China or other at-risk areas. While the potential public health threat posed by this coronavirus is high, the individual risk depends on exposure, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html . For the general American public, the likelihood of exposure to the virus is minimal and the immediate health risk from this coronavirus is considered low. The CDC studies and tracks multiple illnesses very year. Their experience and expertise is considered the gold standard.

Coronavirus usually causes an upper respiratory tract illness like the common cold. Patients with this new coronavirus have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath according to the CDC at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html. The great majority of individuals, over 80%, have had a milder version. Some cases have little to no symptoms whatsoever. In the cases of elderly, infirmed, and chronically ill individuals, this virus does have the potential to cause a severe respiratory illness. This fact is similar to influenza, or the common flu.

It’s still cold and flu season, and the same practices that stop the spread of these common illnesses are recommended:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Cover mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces you touch.

Use hand sanitizers with 70% alcohol concentration

  • These practices should be routine at any time of the year and in everyone’s household and work environment

There is no specific treatment for coronavirus. Most infected people will recover on their own without the need for in hospital treatment. If you, a family member, coworker, or employee have traveled recently to an area of risk (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html), or if you think you may have been exposed to the virus and have symptoms of respiratory illness, you should  contact your health care provider for further instructions.

Thank you,
