At Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care, we continue to closely watch the news on 2019-nCoV, also known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, which is affecting so many citizens in the country of China.
Fortunately, since our last post on January 28, 2020, we have not seen an alarming rise in cases in the United States, and Texas remains spared from it. As of today, there are 11 confirmed cases, most on the West Coast, thanks to the diligent work of the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and multiple government agencies.
It is easy to worry about your little ones when they have fever and respiratory symptoms, which are commonly seen in cold and flu season. The news can be scary for all of us! Just keep in mind, that health officials are monitoring the situation closely. However, if you or your family members have visited China in the last 14 days or have been contact with someone known to have the 2019-nCoV, your civil duty is to reach out for a face mask and a bottle of hand sanitizer, and quickly isolate yourself. Call your physician and the health department immediately for instructions before you visit a healthcare facility! And remember to remain calm.
Just like you, we hope that the CDC and all government agencies continue their great work in limiting the spread of the virus here in the U.S. so we can carry on with our lives as normal as possible. As for the Chinese citizens, we pray for good health.
