Is There a New Type of Coronavirus Treatment?

 Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause a wide spectrum of diseases, from the common cold to more serious respiratory diseases such as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Common types of coronaviruses cause mild to moderate upper respiratory diseases such as colds. Most people get this type of virus at some point in their life.

How Do You Know If You Have Coronavirus Disease?

 If there is fever, cough, shortness of breath…

MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV, other subtypes of coronaviruses, are often known to cause more serious symptoms. MERS symptoms are usually fever, cough, and shortness of breath that often progresses to pneumonia. MERS cases continue to occur especially in the Arabian Peninsula. SARS symptoms often include fever, chills, and body ache that progress to pneumonia. No cases of human SARS have been reported anywhere in the world since 2004.

A new coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain not previously described in humans. Limited information is available to characterize the clinical disease spectrum associated with 2019-nCoV. The clinical diagnostic criteria of the disease caused by the virus in humans have been developed based on what is known about MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV and are subject to change as additional information is available. Healthcare professionals should obtain a detailed travel history for patients evaluated with fever and acute respiratory disease.

What to do to protect against the virus?

Standard recommendations to prevent the spread of infection include regular hand washing, closing the mouth and nose during coughing and sneezing, and thorough cooking of meat and eggs. It is necessary to avoid close contact with people who show symptoms of respiratory disorders, such as coughing and sneezing. Based on the available information, the WHO does not recommend any travel restrictions.

How is the new coronavirus (2019-CoV) treated?

There is no vaccine or specific treatment available for the 2019-CoV infection, the care is supportive.
