Healthier Me: New Deadly Virus

Posted: Updated:

 

In Wednesday's Healthier Me, we've got a new update on a mysterious and dangerous new virus.

 

The World Health Organization says at least a dozen people have become sick with a new viral infection called the novel coronavirus (NCOV).

NCOV was first identified in September of last year and features SARS-like symptoms including acute respiratory infection, fever, and cough.

Doctors say the virus appears difficult to contract, and there is no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission; so far, it has only shown up abroad.

 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is advising doctors to ask patients with certain symptoms about their recent travels.
