The recently identified Wuhan novel coronavirus (WN-CoV) belongs to a large family of viruses with some causing a less-severe disease, such as the common cold, and others causing a more-severe disease such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronaviruses.
Coronaviruses are mainly transmitted by large respiratory droplets and direct or indirect contact with infected secretions. They have also been detected in blood, faeces and urine and, under certain circumstances, airborne transmission is thought to have occurred from aerosolised respiratory secretions and faecal material.
Sensitivity to Disinfectants
Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses which means that they are sensitive to a wide range of disinfectants.
