UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres asks for "prudence, not panic."

Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 is a new respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. Coronavirus Disease 2019 is a new disease never seen before in humans.  It is different from other human coronaviruses that cause the common cold.

CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including: Avoid close contact with people who are sick; avoid touching eyes, noes, and mouth; wash hand with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
