Recall, the outbreak of the virus began with a seafood and animal market in the Chinese city of Wuhan. It causes symptoms similar to colds, but quickly affects the lungs and other organs. The pathogen belongs to a large family of coronaviruses. The disease has spread to dozens of countries.
The World Health Organization has officially named the new killer coronavirus from China — COVID-19. In China itself, it used to be called NCP (Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia), which means pneumonia, which is caused by a new type of coronavirus. The first vaccine for this type of coronavirus will appear no earlier than a year and a half later.
The source of the outbreak of the coronavirus seems to be some kind of animal. At the same time, it is known that the virus can be transmitted from person to person by airborne droplets. There are suspicions that the disease can be transmitted even in the incubation period, when its carrier does not suspect that it is infected.
In Ukraine, March 3, Deputy Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko said that in Chernivtsi recorded the first case of infection with COVID-19. Infection was found in a man who returned from Italy.
Basic recommendations for avoiding coronavirus infection:
avoid contact with animals;
Do not eat raw or poorly processed meat;
avoid contact with people who have signs of the disease;
wash your hands regularly and thoroughly.
