CDC is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (termed “COVID-19”) that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which continues to expand.
There are ongoing investigations to learn more. This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.
While 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.
For current information, visit the CDC website on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.
