2019 NOVEL CORONAVIRUS ALERT
Recently, a novel (new) coronavirus was detected in a number of people worldwide, primarily in China. A “novel coronavirus” is a strain that has not been previously found in humans. Symptoms for this novel coronavirus, also referred to as 2019-nCoV, can include fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Most people who were first diagnosed with this infection reported exposure to a large seafood and live animal market in Wuhan, China. Recently, people with this infection did not report contact with this market. This means that person-to-person spread is occurring.
At this time, the risk to New Yorkers is low.
Medical providers, please see the NYC DOH Novel Respiratory Virus page for valuable information and resources.
