Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that can be found among humans and animals. Depending on the virus strain, they cause a variety of illnesses, including what is known as the common cold. However, more aggressive strains can lead to severe diseases like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
COVID-19 is a new, or novel, coronavirus strain that has not been seen before. It has not yet officially been determined how the disease originated, but early genetic testing show it started in bats. More tests and research is being conducted to see if the disease moved to another animal after bats before moving to humans
For some individuals, yes. The primary concern is that COVID-19 causes respiratory illness. Older people and anyone with medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, COPD and asthma appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus.
COVID-19 infection can cause mild symptoms like a runny nose, sore throat, cough, and fever. More severe symptoms include pneumonia or breathing difficulties.

EPA tests have demonstrated effectiveness against viruses such as COVID-19 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Therefore, SONO Disinfecting Wipes and SONO Ultrasound Wipes can be used against COVID-19 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Human Coronavirus on hard, non-porous surfaces.
The disinfection process for COVID-19 is divided into three steps:
1. Wipe the surface until it is visibly wet with the wipe solution.
2. Maintain a wet surface for at least 4 minutes, using multiple wipes if needed.
3. Allow to air dry.
Symptoms usually include a runny nose, sore throat, cough, and fever. For some people. it is similar in many ways to the flu or the common cold, but for others, severe breathing difficulties are a sign of infection. It is possible to be tested for the disease, but you will need to call a local medical facility to be advised on where to go.
COVID-19 seems to only be spreading from person-to-person with close contact, but more research is needed. People who are infected can transmit the virus by coughing, sneezing and talking.
The highest number of cases in the US are in New York and New Jersey, but many other states are seeing the number of confirmed cases rise. As of 5/1/2020, the states with more than 10,000 cases include New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois, California, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia, Colorado, Washington, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
As states start to open up again, you should expect to see confirmed cases increase in those places.
The best form of prevention of coronavirus is to wash your hands regularly, keep at least 6 feet of distance from others, and not touch your eyes, mouth, nose or face. The next best step is to wear a mask in public. This will protect you from airborne germs that get expelled when people cough, sneeze and talk.
If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, be sure to cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing. You should also wear a mask so you are less likely to spread the virus to other people. Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching most surfaces in your home.
The next, and most important, step is to call a doctor’s office to find out where you should go to be tested.
There is no standardized treatment at this time, other than bed rest and allowing the infected person’s immune system time to fight the virus. Since it is a virus and not a bacterial infection, antibiotics are not an effective treatment.
Yes. This is the best way to prevent spreading the virus to more people.
