What is Coronavirus?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, swine, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), and now with 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Many cases of 2019-nCoV have been reported in China, and a few have also been reported in several other countries, including the United States. These viruses can cause a range of symptoms, including a runny nose, cough, sore throat and fever. Some cases are mild, such as the common cold, while others may lead to pneumonia.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists the most common way of spreading the Coronaviruses is by respiratory transmission from person to person, happening among close contacts (about 6 feet) through coughs and sneezes. This is similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread. It is currently unclear if a person can get a Coronavirus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
