NCoV – First report of patient-to-nurse spread

Patient-to-nurse spread of coronavirus

Initial analysis by scientists at Britain’s Health Protection Agency last year found that nCoV’s closest relatives were most probably bat viruses. Yet further work by a research team in Germany suggests nCoV may have come through an intermediary – possibly goats.

The WHO’s Wednesday update said that, while some health care workers in Jordan had previously contracted nCoV, these Saudi cases were the first clear evidence of the virus passing from infected patients.

“Health care facilities that provide care for patients with suspected nCoV infection should take appropriate measures to decrease the risk of transmission of the virus to other patients and health care workers,” it said.

It also advised health care providers to be “vigilant among recent travellers returning from areas affected by the virus” who develop severe acute respiratory infections.

Since nCoV first emerged and was identified in September 2012, the WHO says it has been informed of a total of 40 laboratory-confirmed cases worldwide, including 20 deaths.

Saudi Arabia has had most of the cases – with 30 patients infected, 15 of them fatally – but nCoV cases have also been reported in Jordan, Qatar, Britain, Germany and France.
