Update on Coronavirus from Children’s Physicians Medical Group

Here’s the update on Coronavirus from the director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The global case count has reached 2,886, and there have been 81 deaths, five cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the U.S., (all 5 are adults that had traveled to Wuhan, China) at this time this virus is not spreading in the community. So far, most of the information coming out from China, which is certainly where the majority of cases are, is that the disease is by far, majorly in adults, with older adults and those with underlying illnesses at higher risk.
So the message is stay calm and don’t panic, and if you haven’t already gotten yourself and your kids vaccinated for the flu, do so. Protect your family from what we can, both influenza A and B are at high rates in the community and since symptoms of the flu are similar to Coronavirus, the hope is that they won’t get the flu and you won’t have to panic.
If you have to travel, we recommend you wear a mask and wash your hands often.
