    COVID-19 Mythbusters from the World Health Organization


    From the CDC's Coronavirus Disease 2019 Situation Summary:

    Background

    CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in more than 100 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

    On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC). On January 31, 2020, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II declared a public health emergency (PHE) for the United States to aid the nation’s healthcare community in responding to COVID-19. On March 11, 2020, WHO publicly characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic.


    Source and Spread of the Virus

    Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and now with this new virus (named SARS-CoV-2).

    The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a betacoronavirus, like MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. All three of these viruses have their origins in bats. The sequences from U.S. patients are similar to the one that China initially posted, suggesting a likely single, recent emergence of this virus from an animal reservoir.

    Early on, many of the patients at the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China had some linked to a large seafood and live animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. Later, a growing number of patients reportedly did not have exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread. Person-to-person spread was subsequently reported outside Hubei and in countries outside China, including in the United States. Some international destinations now have apparent community spread with the virus that causes COVID-19, as do some parts of the United States. Community spread means some people have been infected and it is not known how or where they became exposed. Learn what is known about the spread of this newly emerged coronaviruses.

  • Prevention

    Know How COVID-19 Spreads

    • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
    • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
    • 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, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
      • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

    Everyone Should:


    Cover Your Mouth & Nose With a Cloth Face Cover When Around Others*

    • You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
    • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
    • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
    • The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
    • Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
    • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.

    *The CDC is providing new information on the use of masks and face coverings. As soon as this information is published, we will publish an update.


    Cover Coughs & Sneezes

    • If you are around others and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
    • Throw used tissues in the trash.
    • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

    Wash Your Hands Often

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

    Avoid Close Contact


    Clean & Disinfect

    • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
    • If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
    • Then, use a household disinfectant. Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work.

    Monitor Your Health

    • Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
    • Take your temperature if symptoms develop.
      • Don’t take your temperature within 30 minutes of exercising or after taking medications that could lower your temperature, like acetaminophen.
    • Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.

  • Symptoms

    Updated March 13, 2020, 8:31 a.m.

    COVID-19 Symptoms have been updated and may appear 2-14 days after exposure. It is important to know the symptoms of COVID-19, which looks similar to the flu at the start, for many.  COVID-19 spreads by the touch of an infected person or surface and occasionally through respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing. 


    Common Symptoms (Bronchitis-Like):

    • Dry cough
    • High Fever
    • Shortness of breath
    • Fatigue

    Possible Symptoms:

    • Headaches
    • Aches and pains
    • Sore Throat

    Rare Symptoms:

    • Diarrhea
    • Runny Nose
    • Sneezing (NOT a symptom)

    Emergency Warning Signs:

    • Difficulty breathing
    • Shortness of breath
    • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
    • New confusion or inability to arouse
    • Bluish lips or face

    Describing Symptoms from a Medical Point of View:

    • Mild is classified from barely any symptoms to non-hospitalized pneumonia. Not the same for COVID-19 as when a cold, for example, is described as mild. 
    • Severe is classified as needing oxygen.
    • Critical is classified as in organ failure or worse.

  • Should I Get Tested?

    You SHOULD get tested:

    • If you have returned from ANY international travel or a cruise within the last 14 days and you have a fever, dry cough or shortness of breath.
    • If you have been in close contact with someone who has recently returned from international travel or a cruise and has any of the symptoms above.
    • If you are displaying COVID-19 symptoms (see Symptoms tab).

    CALL your health care provider or county health department (CHD):


    If your travel history has not put you at risk, take note:

    If you have been in close contact with someone who may have or had COVID-19, and you have symptoms of fever, dry cough or shortness of breath, or you have an underlying medical condition like diabetes or heart disease, or a history of cancer.

    FIRST, call, do not visit, your CHD or health care provider:

    It’s IMPORTANT to call ahead before visiting your CHD or health care provider. Offices must take proper steps to avoid further spread of COVID-19 when a concerned patient arrives for a medical appointment.


    How testing is done:

    A person who is tested will have three specimens taken: oral, nasal and saliva. Samples will be given to the CHD and from there, shipped or delivered to the closest laboratory. Test results are available within 24–48 hours.


    What if I test positive for COVID-19?

    • Warn anyone you come in contact with that you have COVID-19.
      • Warn others if you suspect you may have COVID-19 as well.
    • Stay home except to get medical care.
    • Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home.
    • Call ahead before visiting your doctor.
    • Wear a facemask when around others.
    • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
    • Clean your hands often.
    • Avoid sharing personal household items.
    • Clean all “high-touch” surfaces every day.
  • Testing Sites
  • International Travel Advisory

    The Florida Department of Health is advising all individuals who have traveled internationally to follow the new CDC guidelines, summarized below:

    • Level 3: Mandatory 14-day self-isolation and practice social distancing upon return to the United States. Social distancing includes avoiding going out in public and close personal interactions.
