Trump Slump World Coronavirus Live Updates

~ SPECIAL FEATURE ~

COVID-19 is the official name of the novel coronavirus pandemic threat now roiling China and spilling over to the rest of the world. The health and economic implications of this virus are so serious, that it has become deserving of its very own page on our site (as with so many others that usually cover non-health topics). The risk of this coronavirus triggering full-fledged global recession, a sort of Trump-Coronavirus one-two punch if you will, is now in plain sight.

TrumpSlump.World will tend to focus greater attention to the economic implications and impacts of coronavirus COVID-19 but also include a great deal of humanitarian, health, and healthcare related stories as well. It is our hope that everyone takes this threat seriously, preparing for the worst, hoping for the best, and keeping our collective heads on.

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.  

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. 

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. 

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
