How Does 2019 Novel (New) Coronavirus Spread?

According to the CDC, the virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person: between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet); through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Symptoms

Information to date suggests that 2019-nCoV causes mild-to-moderate illness and symptoms like the flu, including fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. This is an emerging, rapidly changing situation. Please contact your local department of health or the NYS DOH Novel Coronavirus hotline at 1-888-364-3065 with questions.
