Here’s what we know
The virus is thought to be spread through droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes, much in the same way the flu and other respiratory viruses are spread. Symptoms are believed to appear within 2 to 14 days after exposure and consist of fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.
Here's what you can do.
1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
2. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
4. Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
5. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
