2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
ETIOLOGY AND PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
A novel (new) coronavirus (named "2019-nCoV") that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China
A virus related to bat coronaviruses and the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus
Believed to evolve in animals; coronaviruses, some causing illness in people and others that infect animals, including camels, cats, and bats Initial spreading thought to be from animal to man via exposure to a large seafood and animal market, but recent epidemiologic surveillance suggests that the virus may have originated elsewhere and was brought into that marketplace. Most new cases have not had animal market exposure, suggesting person-to-person spread is occurring.
Exposure to people with a travel history to Wuhan, ChinaSpread via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes
Similar as for the influenza virus; hand washing, avoid others if ill. Obtaining the influenza vaccine; while not protective against the 2019-nCoV, will help the much greater risk of severe illness or death from influenza.
