Everything you need to know about the Coronavirus:
What is the Coronavirus?
Coronavirus Infection (COVID-19) is a new viral disease that causes respiratory illness in people. This virus was first identified during an outbreak in Wuhan, China, but more cases have occurred in several other countries. The infection has been identified in a number of persons inside of the United States. We are providing the following information to you based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) Infectious Disease Division.
What are the symptoms?
People who have been infected with COVID-19 have had symptoms that range from mild cold symptoms to severe respiratory illness and even death.
These are the most common symptoms. They may appear 2-14 days after exposure.
Shortness of breath.
How does the Coronavirus spread?
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest). Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
The virus that causes COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”) in some affected geographic areas.
What to do if you become ill?
Notify your MDBox provider if you have any of the above symptoms. You should also inform your provider if you have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 or have traveled within the past two weeks to a country or region with known COVID-19 cases. Your MDBox provider is a healthcare professional who has been informed about the current status of COVID-19. Your provider can advise you about when and how to get tested for the virus, and how to take care of yourself. Your MDBox provider will know how to contact your state’s public health department and the CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
If you decide to seek treatment in person at a local healthcare clinic such as an urgent care or at a hospital, call ahead to that facility. Notify your healthcare professional if you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread. Tell your healthcare professional about your recent travel or contact. Your healthcare professional will also be able work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
