The County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) is closely monitoring a new coronavirus causing a global outbreak of respiratory illnesses reported in China.

Working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Department of Public Health and the local medical community, HHSA has a plan in place to identify, isolate, test and investigate a possible case of the respiratory illness.

“We’re in constant communication with all the appropriate entities and have a protocol and plan to deal with any potential case,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “We are prepared and are conducting surveillance for this new virus just like we do for any communicable disease, including previously identified coronaviruses.”

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with Middle East respiratory syndrome and severe acute respiratory syndrome. Many of the patients in the pneumonia outbreak caused by 2019-nCov in Wuhan, China had some link to a large seafood and live animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. However, a growing number of patients diagnosed with 2019-nCoV have not reported exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread is occurring.

POTENTIAL CASE REPORTED

Last week, HHSA issued a health alert to the local medical community asking them to be on the lookout for and report potential cases in people who have traveled to the areas where cases of this new virus (2019-nCoV) have been reported.

On Sunday, a potential case was reported to HHSA in a person who traveled to 2019-nCoV impacted areas in China. After consulting with a local hospital, a specimen was collected, sent to the County Public Health Lab for packaging and then sent to the CDC for testing.

The patient is currently in isolation at home and results are expected back from the CDC tomorrow. Currently, the CDC is the only entity capable of testing for this novel coronavirus.

In the meantime, the County has been conducting its investigation to identify people who may have had close contact with the patient and quarantine them.

“The risk of infection for the general public is minimal,” Wooten added. “If you have not traveled to an area where the virus has been detected or had close contact with a patient who tested positive for this type of coronavirus, the risk of infection is very low.”

WHAT TO DO IF YOU’VE TRAVELED TO AN IMPACTED AREA?

Currently, five airports across the nation are monitoring returning travelers from areas impacted by this new strain of coronavirus.

Patients with confirmed 2019-nCoV infection have reported mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:

• fever;

• cough;

• shortness of breath/difficulty breathing.

At this time, the CDC believes that symptoms of 2019-nCoV may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

If you’ve traveled to one of the impacted areas and start to develop symptoms, you should contact your medical provider before showing up at their office so that they can take the necessary precautions before your visit.

“If you’ve traveled to an impacted area and start showing symptoms, call your doctor so that they can take the required steps to avoid infecting others,” Wooten said.

Wooten added that people should abstain from traveling to impacted areas unless “it’s absolutely necessary.”

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM CORONAVIRUSES

Practice everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

• Stay home when you are sick.

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

“These every day habits can help prevent the spread of several viruses,” Wooten said.

For more information about 2019-nCoV, visit the CDC’s website or HHSA’s Epidemiology Unit. The County has also established a coronavirus call line at 619-692-8499.

I am BIANCA AQUINO from United States LAKEWOOD NEW JERSEY, I was having herpes 2 on my private part. I have had them for about 2 and a half years. I am so scared that my friends are going to laugh at me, if they should find out that I have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my boyfriend broke up with me. I have been to Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all came back negative. I have also been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (I freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any Bigger, but then they didn’t shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. Sometimes it get sweet when Scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so badly! Until i stubbed into DR. ekiadola Daily post on remedy for herpes diseases has posted by Sarah lifted from Dr.ekiadola daily post as advise to Mathew and George about the great herbal doctor how he has helped them get rid of these infectious diseases, and how this great herbal doctor called DR. ekiadola healed them; So that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy. That how i was cured. contact him on his email. ekiadolaherbalhome@gmail.com or whatsapp: 17784004580

I would like to talk about my encounter with this herpes permanent treatment method from drmolemenspiritualtemple@gmail.com

In the beginning, I was a bit skeptical, but slowly the results proved that I was wrong. I had been reluctant; it`s difficult to imagine that it can cure something such as this and make yourself look much better. I did, and you could, as well. Once you start performing the treatment method in hopes of getting better and not stopping, you`re already halfway to getting rid of the cold sore for life.
