Urgent Public Health Notice-Poster-Coronavirus called Covid-19, cases have been reported from various countries across the continents. This is a respiratory infection that causes flu/cold like symptoms (which include cough, shortness of breath and a high temperature) and in the majority of cases is mild but unfortunately has resulted in a number of deaths in China. As this is a new strain, there is a lot that is still not clear including how transmissible the virus is or how long it can live outside of the body (i.e. on surfaces). Work is ongoing at both an international and national level to understand more around this virus as quickly as possible.
