"" has gathered the most important thing about the coronavirus to 3 February 2020.

the Image of the 2019 coronavirus-nCoV / Centre for control and prevention of diseases of the United States Who might get sick Wuhan coronavirus? Coronavirus — a group of viruses. They can be infected not only people but many animals. Already known coronaviruses threaten human life, and the period of the disease is relatively harmless.

a New type of coronavirus, which appeared in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of December 2019, is different: he attacks the upper respiratory tract, can cause inflammation of the lungs (pneumonia) and lead to death. Ill definitely need to seek help from doctors.

to Get a new type can do everything, so how is it the easiest way — airborne. Enough to be near an infected person at a distance of two to three meters, but it doesn't even have to contact.

Especially, the virus settles in the human body with a weakened immune system. In accordance with the provisional recommendations of the Ministry of health about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of new coronavirus infection, least of all to the new disease of susceptible children and young people.

Also 2019-nCoV is not able to survive in the air outside the body. Therefore, you can safely pick up packages from AliExpress. If from thing to person, the virus is not transmitted, the trade between people — easy: Jan 30 Chinese sellers have started asking buyers to cancel orders. They are obliged to return the advance payment.

How can I understand that he had a new type of coronavirus? The main symptoms resemble SARS — fever, dry cough and General weakness. In rare cases, shortness of breath and respiratory failure.

it also Happens that the virus does not manifest itself practically, but a man can still infect others.

Sanitary control at the airport "Vnukovo" / AGN "Moscow" / photo: Alexander Avilov Rospotrebnadzor recommends: if you have visited in the last two weeks China has been in contact with someone who traveled to the DPRK and feel signs of a cold — treat the symptoms as carefully. That is, consult a doctor.

For prevention should maintain clean hands (buy hand sanitizer and carry it with you), do not RUB your eyes, mouth and nose. Regularly clean gadgets, computer keyboard and panel equipment for General use. Reduce the greeting by the hand and kisses on the cheek.

Appeared a lot of advertising of drugs for prevention the new coronavirus. Does it make sense to buy them? The speed of propagation of the virus and the growing number of his victims led to panic.

However, the effectiveness of these drugs in the treatment of viral diseases is not proven . Moreover, manufacturers are unable to register them as medicines nor in Europe nor in the United States.

the Production of pharmaceuticals / the Representatives of "Arbidol" and "Ingavirin" refused to comment on the situation. At the same time is a miraculous means became interested in the Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS), which has promised to arrange a test.

it Turns out, there's no cure for coronavirus Wuhan? Now there isn't. Researchers and physicians yet know too little about the real effect of the virus and its features. Although progress in research is still there — 29 January, scientists from the Institute of infectious diseases and immunology in Melbourne (Australia) managed to create a copy of the new coronavirus. The model will help to develop an effective cure, but to treat people from the coronavirus in any case will begin soon.

But for research, approval and mass distribution of drugs from a new type of coronavirus need for almost a year. Clinical trials can go this summer, but this schedule referred to as "ambitious".

On the development of vaccines have also started to work at the American National Institute of health (NIH) and the Russian State research center of Virology and biotechnology "Vector". According to the newspaper South China Morning Post, Chinese researchers have already developed a vaccine.
