There is no data about 5 cases, but in US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed the fifth case of coronavirus infection.

In China, at least 56 people died as a result of infection.

CDC recommendations

For all: the flu and respiratory season is in full swing. To stop the spread of germs, the CDC recommends getting vaccinated, taking daily preventative measures and, if necessary, taking antiviral drugs for the flu.

For medical professionals:

  • Be mindful of people with a history of traveling to Wuhan, China, with fever and respiratory symptoms.
  • If you are a healthcare professional caring for a patient with coronavirus, take care of yourself and follow the guidelines for infection control.
