what is Corona virus cause diseases | symptoms
this is a very large outbreak this isdr. bill Schaffner . I'm an infectious disease specialist and public health person coronaviruses are a whole family of viruses for the most part. they don't cause any real clinical illness exceptthe occasional cold. but you know from time to time there's a rogue corona virus that develops we remember SARS2002 2003 and then there was another the MERS virus. the Middle East respiratory syndrome virus. this new virus like those other rogue viruses probably was first transmitted to humans from animals so the symptoms resemble influenza it's are spiratory virus initially and so you have fever not feeling.
we're very well coughed and just feeling poorly we don't have a direct anti coronavirus treatment. we can manage the patient's through symptomatic care and supportive care of course and many patients already the Chinese have said have survived this infection the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have this top of the mind they have deployed over a hundred people to New York to San Francisco and Los Angeles. they will be screening people . who are arriving from particularly Wuhan China to see whether they are sickso there are laboratories around the world including our own National Institutes of Health that are now already working on developing a rapid diagnostic test and the other thing they're doing is starting to work on avaccine the global community is really watching this with great care and we in the United States definitely are on the alert and ready to respond.
