Book Synopsis

From Dr. Wang Zhou and his colleagues at the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention comes a must-have guide for preparing for an outbreak of the coronavirus virus (COVID-19).

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the US and the World Health Organization have declared the coronavirus a worldwide health emergency. The coronavirus was first identified in Wuhan, China. Now, from the medical experts there, comes the first authoritative, comprehensive guide to preparing for the ongoing epidemic (COVID-19).

Written in plain language, here is information that will help readers and professionals understand the virus and protect themselves in the face of a possible outbreak. As COVID-19 continues to spread around the world--China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States--preventative measures such as controlling the source of infection, early detection of patients, and cutting off transmission are imperative.

With 101 tips for individuals to prevent the spread of the virus, the information in this handbook could be lifesaving. The prevention tips include:

  • Precautions for individuals and public places (handwashing, face masks, etc.)
  • Strategies for detection and treatment of the disease
  • An overview of the coronavirus and how it's spread
  • Basics about contagious diseases
With the number of reported cases of COVID-19 growing daily, the information in this book will help you protect yourself and your loved ones!
