What YOU Need To Know:

There are no clear parameters for classification of clinical symptoms. Symptoms mimic the flu:

  • Cough
  • Fever 
  • Symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough, difficulty breathing).
  • In severe cases, the infection can lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. 

Not much is really known about this virus at this time. Viruses are self limiting agents that hijack your cells to do their dirty work.

  • Care will be supportive, fluids, antivirals, rest, contain the spread until more information becomes available.
  • Wash hands frequently when available, carry hand sanitizer when you cannot wash your hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing / sneezing.
  • Thoroughly cooking your eggs and meats.
  • Limit your contact in public spaces if at all possible.
  • Apply additional caution for the very young, old and persons who are immunocompromised.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone showing signs of respiratory illness, such as coughing or sneezing until further information.

No vaccine or specific treatment for 2019-nCoV infection is currently available.

Stay safe and blessed!

  1. Thank you for sharing this information Pene. It’s so scary that this is spreading so quickly. Hope you’re doing well sweet friend!

    1. Thank you so much for asking, I am doing well. Stay vigilant and take care of yourself. Lots of love to you.

  2. Thank you for the update. We need to keep a close eye on this deadly disease.

  3. Thanks for the update, Pené!
    There’s one thing I don’t understand; perhaps you can explain. Why would cooking eggs well affect anything? No one could have coughed on them in the shell…. I must have missed something….?

    1. Not sure myself, I was wondering if perhaps they import eggs from places that may be suspect. Apparently since this virus was found in bats, they could possibly be afraid of some cross contamination. And eggs can become contaminated before the shells are formed and from droppings. More likely a precaution.

      1. Ok, thanks! Better to be safe than sorry!

        1. One of the guys from my job came back from China on Monday and came to a leadership workshop we were at. He said they checked his temperature at every port. Hopefully he did not import anything here.

          1. Oh, wow! Yes, for sure! I hope and pray you are all well.

  4. Thanks for sharing

  5. Awesome post! Keep up the great work! 🙂

    1. I must say I had not thought of how the issue affects the tech industry. Eye opening.

  6. Great article! Awareness is the necessity of today’s situation. People have so many theories in mind and it all leads them to fear.

    I have done some research and added popular rumors and theories in my article that will allow readers to know the facts of the matter and it will also help people to learn how they can protect themselves.

    I have taken information from trusted and direct resources like WHO and CDC

  7. Thank you for this great post, I thoroughly valued reading it. I have been very disappointed with the media’s coverage of the Coronavirus outbreak so I have recently published an article on my blog about what we should be worried about and how we can protect ourselves and others. If you have time, it would be great if you could check out my post and let me know your thoughts! Thanks 🙂

    1. Will do. Thanks for visiting.
