As many of you would now know, there has been an outbreak of a novel (new) coronavirus infection (2019-nCoV) starting in Wuhan City (Hubei Province, China) in late 2019. Knowledge is increasing about this infection over time. The following information is currently believed to be accurate,
The infection presents as a fever or history of fever (≥38°C) and acute respiratory infection (shortness of breath, cough or sore throat).
The incubation period appears to be a maximum of 14 days.
The potential for human to human transmission is moderately high.
It appears that transmission is possible from up to 1 day prior to symptom onset until recovery.
The current evidence is that the case fatality rate is quite high at about 4% of persons infected.
We would recommend that AKR members or visitors who meet the following criteria consider not attending training, to protect your friends and training partners, until the incubation period of 14 days is passed without symptoms.
Anyone who has been in China (including Hong Kong) in the last 14 days.
Anyone who has travelled to an area with evidence of human to human transmission, or a declared outbreak, within the last 14 days.
Anyone who has had close contact with a confirmed case of 2019-nCoV within the last 14 days.
Anyone who meets the above criteria and has evidence of fever or an acute respiratory infection is urged to follow their state public health unit recommendations and present to an appropriate medical practitioner or health facility for assessment.
