What is COVID-19?
超pen个人公开视频在线观看,中日高清字幕版在线观看The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that a novel (new) coronavirus first detected in China has now been identified in more than 60 locations internationally, including the United States. The virus has been named SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes has been named COVID-19.
On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern.”

- Wash your hands frequently, using soap, for at least 20 seconds. Wash hands especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food. Use hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Cover your coughs or sneezes with a tissue, then discard the tissue;
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands;
- Avoid sharing personal items or household items, such as dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding;
- Clean high-touch surfaces every day (doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, bedside tables, counters, tabletops) using household spray or a cleaning wipe.
Because COVID-19 results from a coronavirus (of which there are many forms, including the common cold), symptoms can mimic a cold or flu:
- Shortness of breath
Symptoms may appear 2–14 days after exposure and may range from mild to severe.
What You Should Do
If you have these symptoms and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you have recently traveled to an area in which there have been cases of COVID-19 identified, call your healthcare professional immediately. To prevent further spread of the disease, it is important that you:
- Stay home or in your residence hall room except to get medical care. Do not go to work, classes, or public areas. Do not use public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
- Email the Office of Student Affairs to let them know you are ill. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Email the Office of Student Health Services for an appointment at email@example.com. If you are home or prefer to see an off-campus health provider, call to tell them of your concerns before you visit so that they can take necessary precautions to prevent disease spread, whether flu or COVID-19.
- Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home or residence hall, as possible. If you are home, use a separate bathroom, if available. It is recommended that infected people not cuddle with pets or share food with them (although no cases of COVID-19 have been detected in pets, there may be a risk of spreading the disease through contact with them).
- If your symptoms worsen, and especially if you have difficulty breathing, call your doctor right away.
- If you are confirmed to have a case of COVID-19, remain under home isolation until your health care provider deems the risk of transmission to be low.
