Some symptoms are mild and can be similar to the common cold. Other symptoms are more likely to lead to pneumonia. The virus is usually spread through direct contact with an infected person.
There is a total of 7 Coronaviruses that can infect humans: well known coronaviruses are SARS and MERS–and the new Virus SARS-CoV-2. It is unclear how exactly it spreads from person to person, but the CDC recommends that anyone who may have been exposed to the illness monitor themselves for 14 days after close contact with an infected person.
Protect yourself and others from getting sick by following some simple rules:
Wash your hands with soap and water:
– After coughing or sneezing
– When caring for others
– Before, during and after you prepare food
– Before eating
– After using the washroom/toilet
– After handling animals or animal waste
– When hands are dirty
Any hospital grade disinfectant with an EPA or DIN Number can be effective when used as directed.
