A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.
COVID-19 is currently being called coronavirus disease 2019 because it has been found to be part of a new family of coronaviruses. COVID-19 is not as deadly as SARS or MERS, but it does have flu-like symptoms. It's important to get your vaccinations for this virus, both if you are at high risk for contracting COVID-19, or if you have a close contact who is diagnosed with COVID-19. If you're healthy and don't think that COVID-19 will affect you, just take precautions like washing your hands and keeping surfaces clean. If anyone in your household develops COVID-19, try to keep them from touching other people outside of the household until they recover from their illness
Frequent contact with infected persons as well as consuming food or drinks that have been handled by an infected person are two major routes for transmission. It's important to note, however, that while this is a rare disease, it can be fatal if not treated quickly. According to experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there is no specific treatment available but antiviral drugs like Ribavirin and Tamiflu may work on some patients. The CDC recommends washing hands frequently, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, and staying home when ill in order to avoid spreading the virus further.
A person can test negative for COVID-19 and then later test positive for it. This is because a person may have contracted COVID-19, but not developed antibodies to it yet. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider or public health agency as soon as possible. Remember that if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, you should seek medical care immediately even if you've tested negative for it.
Covid 19 is a mutated form of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease that can be transmitted to humans through contact with infected tissue. There are currently no confirmed cases that COVID-19 has been transmitted to humans from pets or other animals, but it's important to take precautions against exposure. Be sure to wash your hands after handling any animal, and avoid contact with their saliva or feces.
