WHO officially declared pandemic COVID 19th worldwide on 11th Mar.
Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus, director general of the WHO, show that the cases outside of China has increased “13-fold” in only 2 weeks.
A new inspected 9 with the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. Researchers want to understand (when the virus leaves its host) during the illness to determine how infectious diseases might.
Conducted by German researchers, although it has not been peer-reviewed, the findings suggest that viral shedding occurs at the high level of the throat during the early phase of the disease to the patients studied.
However, the rate of shedding declines after the fifth day in all patients except for two signs with pneumonia. They continue to shed COVID-19 at a high level until 10 or 11 days, according to the researchers.
“The presence of the study showed that COVID-19 can often present as a common cold-like illness. SARS-CoV-2 can actively replicate in the upper respiratory tract, and a shed for a long time after symptoms have ended, including in the stool, “the study authors.
The scientists also found that people with COVID-19 can explain more than 1,000 times more virus than is emitted during the peak of the SARS infection shedding 2003. They say this could explain why COVID-19 has spread so quickly.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has called in the national guard to help with the creation of the containment zone in the city of New Rochelle, New York where an outbreak of the country has been.
large gatherings and schools will be banned in the city, which is north of New York City. The national guard will be used to help with the clean up public spaces and ensure everyone has access to food.
Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health analyzed the data available to the public to find COVID-19 has approximately 5- day incubation period from exposure to onset of symptoms.
also showed that about 98 percent of people who develop symptoms will do so in 11.5 days of exposure.
The researchers said the average from exposure to onset of symptoms showed that the CDC quarantine period of 14 days for those who may be affected by natural virus.
“Based on our analysis of the data available to the public, the current recommendation is 14 days for active monitoring or quarantine reasonable, albeit with periods of a few cases will be missed in the long term,” said study author senior, PhD, professor The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in.
Another of Sun Yat-sen University in China h as discovered that SARS-CoV-2 may have the ideal temperature at which it spread most easily.
Researchers analyzed the cumulative sum of all cases were confirmed in all the municipalities affected and the area from January 20 to February 4, 2020, their findings suggest that most easily spread at about 48 ° F (8, 89 ° C).
“The study found that, to a certain extent, the temperature can be significant [ly] change COVID-19 transmission, and there may be the best temperature for the transmission of the virus, which partly explains why it first broke in Wuhan,” wrote the study authors. “It is recommended that countries and regions with lower temperatures in the world adopts strict control measures to prevent the reversal of the future.”
The CDC now estimates that over the next year, many people in the United States will be exposed to SARS-CoV-2. However, the vast majority will not be affected.
“It’s fair to say that, as the track outbreaks continue, many people in the United States will at some point in time, either this year or next, exposed to this virus. And there are plenty of good opportunities will become sick, “Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), said in a with reporters on March 9.
” But again, based on what we know about this virus, we do not expect most people to develop serious disease, “added Messonnier.
Messionnier also warned that people who are at high risk, including those older than 60 or those with underlying health conditions, should start preparing for the outbreak by stocking up on supplies in case they get sick or do not want to venture in the community for groceries.
in Italy, in which case COVID-19 soared, government effectively locked down state.
Prime minister of Italy that almost all trade will be prohibited except for stores and pharmacies.
Recently, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus called on countries to make them fight illness “highest priority.”
With the increasing number of people have reported symptoms COVID-19 across the country, local health department warned they do not have enough testing kits.
This month, Dr. Raul Perea-Henze, vice mayor of health and human services in New York, reported the city was given only two assays.
“New York City should receive an additional test kit as soon as they are available from the CDC,” wrote Perea-Henze. “In some cases positive, NYC need to test the maximum capacity to enable successful implementation of the best public health strategy to protect New York. Federal action is slow on this has hampered our ability to beat back this epidemic. “
After the initial test kits sent by the CDC was postponed in February, the federal government has come under to provide assays in order to measure the extent of the outbreak in the United States.
Vice President Mike Pence said the testing will be more available to Americans over the coming weeks, according to The New York Times.
But he also said, “We do not have enough test current to meet what we anticipate will be in demand in the future.”
Public health experts have advised people to stop touching their face to reduce the risk of contracting a new coronavirus. But it’s more easy to say than to do.
We spoke with experts who told us how we can train ourselves to avoid touching your face constantly. More information can be found.
Health officials have been trying to stop the virus spreading widely in the United States, but some cases of unknown origin have been all over the country.
The federal government recently passed the $ 8.3 billion bill to provide funding assistance to help fight the outbreak.
A finding that one way to slow the disease possible with only obtain a thorough history of the patient’s journey.
In the press conference, officials from WHO said the death rate for COVID-19 may be higher than previously realized.
Ghebreyesus, director general of WHO, said in a statement that SARS-CoV-2 does not appear to efficiently spread of flu.
“This virus is not SARS, it is not mer, and it is not influenza. This is a unique virus with unique characteristics, “he said.
But perhaps more deadly.
“Globally, about 3.4 percent reported COVID 19 cases have died,” he said. “By comparison, seasonal flu typically kills far less than 1 percent of those infected.”
He cited one of the reasons for their mortality rate is different is that there is no vaccine and antiviral drugs to help treat flu symptoms. But it has not been anything to COVID-19.
In addition, he said that according to the evidence from China, only 1 percent of COVID 19 cases have no symptoms, and many people develop symptoms later in life.
As the outbreak continues to spread, there is a way. Among them just pile up your medicine cabinet with over-the-counter cold and flu medications.
While they can not cure the virus, they can help relieve symptoms of mild cases.
Researchers are studying how people with the virus shed it and what impact it has on affected populations.
One recent study found an answer that many will find entertaining.
Testing and confirmation of SARS-CoV infection-2 currently undertaken by oral swabs. But research February 17 in Emerging Microbes and Infection found evidence that there is a fecal-oral transmission route.
Scientists report that viral genetic material can be detected in both the rectal swabs and blood samples. Crucially, the evidence of a new coronavirus was found in rectal swabs and blood -. Even when it is not detectable using oral swabs
According to the study, this is especially true for those patients receiving supportive care for several days.
Although the medical staff, people with the disease, and older adults are most at risk, more than 80 percent of COVID 19 cases have been mild, according to a new CDC China.
Hubei province in China, where the infection is believed to have originated ,, according to the report.
The provincial death rate of nearly 3 percent, compared with just under half a percent, In all countries
One of the most to prevent the spread of diseases such as COVID-19 or flu simple: to encourage employees to stay home when they are ill <. p> But because the United States does not have a national paid sick leave policy, taking a sick day remains a financial sacrifice for the less paid sick leave benefits.
Without sick leave, workers are more likely to come to work sick, exposing their colleagues to the disease. This means that if the SARS-CoV-2 began to spread widely in the United States, it can be difficult to stop.
WHO announced 11 Feb tweeted that this new coronavirus disease from now will be called COVID-19. The virus itself is called SARS-CoV-2
Earlier, have been called 2019nCoV, although many media referred to simply as a coronavirus virus -. Although it refers to a large family of viruses.
The experts are still learning a lot about this new virus. But some hope that the warmer weather would mean a decrease in cases, similar to how the flu season ends in the spring.
However, the medical experts to say whether SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks will decrease this summer.
Because of this entirely new virus, people lack immunity, so that even in the warm weather months it can still be spread around the world.
Since the SARS-CoV-2 is so new, there is currently no cure. But doctors have been able to use supportive care and other antivirals to try to help the patient.
Preliminary research shows some evidence that certain drugs ,, can help fight the virus.
If you have COVID-19 or suspect you have a virus that causes COVID-19, you should seek medical care.
You have several options to get medical treatment, including being seen by your primary health care provider.

Several. the organization has been working on, but it’s unlikely to be widely released in this year.
That’s because the rigorous testing required to ensure that the vaccine is safe and effective.
Experts still investigating, but the virus originated in bats and then transmitted to humans through animal intermediaries.
What animal intermediaries? Potentially snake or type of anteater called a pangolin.
