2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
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, China
Spread 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.

COVID-19 for Nurses: Skip the Rumors and Stick to the Basics
In the U.S. at this time, the major risk presented by the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is not from the disease itself but from misinformation. Rumors, misinterpretations, and conspiracy theories are being transmitted at a rate far greater than that of the coronavirus itself. While the situation is evolving rapidly and things can change quickly, our understanding of the illness has also grown in a remarkably short period of time.
