Covid-19 for Students: Corona Virus
A guide with information about Covid-19 geared towards Middle School Students created with the assistance of the 19-29 MS Students Council
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
World Health Organisation:
This is the first edition of infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance when a novel coronavirus (nCoV) is suspected. It has been adapted from WHO’s IPC recommendations for MERS-CoV (Infection prevention and control during health care for probable or confirmed cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus [MERS-CoV] infection, interim guidance October 2019,
WHO/MERS/IPC/15.1 Rev 11), based on our current knowledge of the situation in Wuhan, China and experiences with SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV2
For anyone who has traveled by plane or train within the last month, you can input your flight or train number to learn whether a passenger infected by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was on your trip.
