Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCOV) The spread of the new virus in China and worldwide is a cause of worry to all of us and sometimes it is hard to get the right perspective on the dangers from the virus. The Ministry of Health updates an information page with the latest advice. Please check that link for the most recent information.
Update 28/2/2020 As at 28/2/2020 there are no confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in NZ but the likelihood of importing a case is high. As of 2/2/2020, all travellers arriving in NZ from mainland China should self-isolate for a period of 14 days from the time they leave mainland China. Self isolation means avoiding situations where you could infect other people. This means all situation where you may come in contact with others, such as social gatherings, work, school, childcare/pre-school centres, university, faith-based gatherings, aged care and healthcare facilities, prisons, sports gatherings, supermarkets, restaurants, shopping malls, and all healthcare facilities. If you are a visitor to NZ, this mean you should avoid sitting in a restaurant, participating in any type of tour group, or using public transport, including flights, buses, and trains between cities in NZ.
If you have come from mainland China recently, please do not come to the medical centre without phoning first. Please call Healthline for advice 0800 358 5453 or call us to speak to a nurse. You may be asked to call us from your car on arrival and you may be seen in your car. Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Singapore and Thailand: People who have travelled to or via these countries AND develop symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath should seek medical advice by first phoning Healthline's dedicated COVID-19 number 0800 358 5453.
In most cases coronavirus causes a flu-like respiratory illness, which occasionally can progress to pneumonia, causing difficulty breathing. Many other colds and flu-like illnesses are indistinguishable from coronavirus. There is no specific anti-viral treatment and no antibiotics will cure this disease.
