China is closely watching the pneumonia outbreak of new coronavirus infection. At the same time, news of every kind is spreading. Difficult to distinguish true and false.
The increasing severity of the outbreak has given all countries greater alert and better protection. Now the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has elaborated on the major transmission routes and the most relevant ones for the disease.
According to US media reports, Nancy Messonnier, director of the American Center for Respiratory Diseases and Immunity, said at the CDC briefing that, based on what they now know, they believe the virus is primarily for people Spread through close contact, described as about six feet (1.8 meters), it is caused by respiratory droplets that occur when the affected person coughs or sneezes.
However, there are two other ways to consider the spread of the Coronavirus. For example, some contact may be transmitted through a contaminated surface and then through the eyes, nose and mouth. But remember, we are confident that this virus will not be able to last long on the surface.
People may have some transmission before symptoms develop. Previous reports on this have been received and are, to our knowledge, related to other respiratory viruses, including seasonal flu.
What Dr Messonnier said about new coronavirus
In fact, the main problem is the spread of droplets caused by coughing and sneezing. Dr Messonnier said: “Currently we do not consider the last two forms of communication to be the real force of communication.”
Dr Mesnoyer confirmed that the CDC is currently reforming these test kits, although there is no timetable for it to be rescheduled.
But, at the same time, for most Americans, the biggest threat at this time is not CoVID-19. The number of influenza A and other H1N1 infections in the United States continues to rise recently, which is in line with the “severe” 2018 ranking. So far 250,000 people have been admitted to the hospital and around 14,000 have died.
