How is the new Coronavirus affecting people who get it?

燕山大学 刘立军 供稿

TRANSCRIPT

This virus, called 2019-nCoV, is new and we are still learning about it. From what we know now, it can make some people a little sick with a slight runny nose. Other people get more sick and can have difficulty breathing and develop pneumonia. Some people get very sick and need to be hospitalized. Among those, unfortunately, some have died. 

While we still need to learn more about how the disease affects people, thus far, most of those that died had other underlying health issues. This information will change as we learn more about this disease. WHO will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.  

If you need more information on the New Coronavirus, check the WHO website at who.int.
