A new coronavirus, designated 2019-nCoV, was identified in late 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei province, after people developed pneumonia without a clear cause and for which existing vaccines or treatments were not effective.
The virus can spread between people, and its transmission rate (rate of infection) appeared to increase in mid-January 2020.
Several countries across Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific have reported cases.
The time from exposure to the development of symptoms is between two and 14 days and there is tentative evidence that it may be contagious before the onset of symptoms. Symptoms include fever, coughing, and breathing difficulties, and death may result.
Coronavirus is spread by binding to the patient’s lungs. As there is no direct cure for the virus, prevention is the best defense measure against it. If you are sick, wearing a surgical mask will stop the spread of the virus as it filters coughs and prevents water particles carrying the virus from entering the air.
However, surgical masks are not 100% effective in protecting the wearer – as there are holes in the mask that allow unfiltered air through it. Even though its not 100% effective, surgical masks help reduce infection by preventing the wearer from touching their nose – a potential method for the virus to enter the lungs. Special masks like the N95 mask are shown to be more effective, but only if worn properly with a tight fit around the face.
Villages in China are also taking matters into their own hands by isolating themselves. As seen in this segment from Sky News, some villages have built surrounding walls to severely limit the people going in and out. Or creating their own checkpoints and taking people’s temperature before allowing them access. These self-containment measures can be seen all across China, including outside the epicentre of the Coronavirus in Wuhan.
