IAED CBRN Fast Track Committee Re: Novel Coronavirus from Wuhan City, China (2019-nCoV)   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The novel coronavirus originating from Wuhan City, China has now spread to a handful of other countries, including the United States, which has one confirmed case as of January 21, 2020, in Washington State. This virus has caused concern among global health authorities since it is believed to have recently jumped from animals to humans and there are now confirmed cases of human-to-human transmission - making it potentially very dangerous in human populations since there is currently no vaccine and little or no immunity. Coronavirus is a species of virus that has several potentially deadly strains, including past spread of SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). Known symptoms of the illness include fever, difficulty breathing, cough, and other milder respiratory symptoms such as sneezing."
