What is it?

The virus is a new strain of coronavirus, a virus that normally acts like the common cold.
This strain acts a lot more like SARS, which itself was a big crisis in Asia over a decade ago.

Symptoms

If you think you’ve been exposed to the virus, keep an eye out for the development of flu-like symptoms, fever, and difficulty breathing.

How it’s spread

Scientists have confirmed that physical contact with infected inderviduals will cause the virus to spread.
Such contact could include touching an infected person with your hand, then using that hand to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.

What now?

Keep calm and don’t prescribe to the panic the media will inevitably cause. Instead, be on your guard until the virus inevitably calms down and is brought under control.
