Lesson on the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), incubation period, signs & symptoms, risk factors, laboratory findings, chest x ray findings, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infection and spread of the virus.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Everyone, please forgive me for my very poor (and improper) pronunciation of Wuhan. My sincerest apologies!

The novel coronavirus (“2019 novel coronavirus”, 2019-nCoV, now known as SARS-CoV-2) seems to have originated in Wuhan, Hubei, China. In this lesson, we discuss the incubation period of the virus, the common and uncommon signs and symptoms, laboratory and bloodwork findings in patients with this virus, and chest x-ray (ex. bilateral pulmonary infiltrates) and CT scan findings (ex. ground-glass opacities). We also discuss how we can diagnosis this virus, possible treatment options for this viral infection, and methods of preventing infection and spread of this virus.
