The Wuhan Coronavirus

First identified in the early part of January 2020, Coronavirus (also known as novel coronavirus and nCoV) has become a rapidly evolving virus strain said to have originated from the province of Wuhan in China.

It is from the same family of viruses as ‘Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome’ (also known as MERS-CoV) responsible for the SARS outbreak which occurred in 2003.

Much like SARS and other potentially deadly viruses, Coronavirus requires urgent action to be taken in order to keep it effectively contained and to lessen the chances of it further spreading from human to human.

As with many other viruses and spreadable diseases, the best preventative steps to take are to ensure the regular sanitation of both surfaces and hands.

Due to its low resistance to disinfection, further contamination of the strain can be avoided with the use of AF International’s Specialist Surface Wipes and Hand Rub after usual washing and cleaning processes.

Further advice and guidelines for safe practice relating to the Coronavirus outbreak can be found on the World Health Organisation’s website here.
