What do we know about Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(“CDC”) website
“Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.
“Early on, many of the patients at the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China had some link to a large seafood and live animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. Later, a growing number of patients reportedly did not have exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread. Person-to-person spread was subsequently reported outside Hubei and in countries outside China, including in the United States.”
“Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and may include fever, cough and shortness of breath”
The illness has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” abbreviated to COVID-19.
