Diagnosis & treatment resources from the CDC

The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new respiratory virus that can spread from person-to-person. It started in China, and is very rare in the United States: only 11 Coronavirus cases have been found here so far. It can be fatal, but only about 2% of people infected around the world have died. Health experts are working on a vaccine. In the meantime, these resources from the Centers for Disease Control will help you protect your patients’ health.

They include:

  • Preparedness checklists to help providers and hospitals plan ahead for potential and confirmed Coronavirus cases
  • Interim guidance for evaluating patients, reporting potential cases, testing medical specimens and preventing transmission
  • Clinical care information for clinicians treating confirmed Coronavirus cases, whether in an inpatient or outpatient setting
