Unlike the AIDs virus that took more than two years to identify, the new virus took only ten days. We know:

  • It is a new virus from group 2B
  • Genetic analysis has confirmed that it has a recent natural origin and that its mutation rate may not be ve...

A test to detect the virus has been available since January 13.

There are over 80 clinical trials analyzing treatments for the new virus. These are antivirals that have been used for other infections, are approved and safe.

The virus can be effectively cleared from surfaces. Use a solution of ethanol (62-71% alcohol), hydrogen peroxide (0,5% hydrogen peroxide) or sodium hypochlorite (0.1% bleach).

With over 200 different kinds of viruses that make up the common cold, Science is struggling to find a cure.
