Common human coronaviruses usually cause mild to moderate upper-respiratory tract illnesses, like the common cold. Symptoms may include:

- runny nose
- headache
- cough
- sore throat
- fever
- a general feeling of being unwell

 

There are forms of animal coronavirus that cause similar illnesses to animals such as camels, cats and bats.  These animal coronaviruses usually do not cause infection in humans.  However, sometimes, these animal strains are able to infect humans and then these virus strains go on to be contagious from human to human.  When this happens, the “novel strain” can cause severe disease in humans.  Past examples of these strains of coronaviruses include SARS and MERS.

In December 2019, China reported cases of a new coronavirus that could spread between person to person called “2019-nCoV”. So far, the virus has caused more severe disease in some people, but the severity of the disease is yet to be determined.

While the CDC considers this is a very serious public health threat, based on current information, the immediate health risk from 2019-nCoV to the general American public is considered low at this time.

Our office does not test for simple human coronavirus and diagnose a “cold” based on symptoms.  Some hospitals and emergency rooms have tests for coronavirus that are used in specific circumstances.  These tests currently detect simple common human coronavirus and are not testing for the novel 2019-nCoV strain that started in China.  At this time, if you hear of someone who tested positive for coronavirus at a standard hospital or urgent care, assume they have a common cold.

 

Our office stays up to date with information provided by the CDC to healthcare providers and will alert our patients as changes arise.
