2. Virus sensitive points

Viruses are sensitive to heat and ultraviolet light

3. Virus killer

5. Source of infection

The main source of infection seen by patients is mainly those infected with new coronavirus.

6. Note

People with asymptomatic infection may also become the source of infection

7. People with asymptomatic infection

People with asymptomatic infections have weaker transmission capacity, and Li Xingwang, a member of the National Medical Expert Group: Asymptomatic infections may have less viral load and weaker transmission capacity, which often occurs with more contact with patients, especially Family aggregation infection is more obvious.

8. Prevention and control measures

Zhong Nanshan emphasized that the most effective means of prevention and control is early detection and early isolation.

9. WHO

WHO: The pneumonia outbreak of new coronavirus infection has not yet constituted a global epidemic.
