Wuhan Coronavirus

Chris from Sunnyhills

If you have travelled to Wuhan in China and aren’t feeling well, take this advice. Please call ahead to tell your doctor you have been to Wuhan so they can prepare.

Novel coronavirus
Coronaviruses are very common viruses found worldwide in humans and animals. They cause respiratory disease, including common colds. Coronaviruses, however, are also responsible for MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).

Masks:
.....N95 would not be needed outside medical institutions if there was no epidemic. “You can’t wear it on the streets or go to work anyway because it’s not easy to breathe with it.”

“A surgical mask is enough if people need enhanced protection in the community,” he said. “It can protect users from droplet transmission.”
