 More than 99percent homology between virus nucleic acid detected in saliva and fecal samples


Meanwhile, the novel coronavirus pneumonia was detected in saliva of the new crown pneumonia patients, and the live virus was isolated from the patients anal swabs. The respiratory tract samples had more than 99% homology with the virus in stool samples.

The prognosis of children with rare severe and critical cases is good

This edition of the childrens diagnosis and treatment program points out that children are generally susceptible, and newborns and infants also have diseases. However, most of the children have mild symptoms without fever; some of them have fever (low fever is common), fatigue, dry cough and other symptoms; upper respiratory tract infections such as nasal obstruction and runny nose are rare; a few of them have no symptoms; newborns may not have clinical manifestations.

From the current cases, 2019 ncov children infected with rare severe and critical cases, prognosis is good, no death.

In addition, this edition of childrens diagnosis and treatment program also provides guidance in terms of diagnosis criteria and treatment. For example, novel coronavirus pneumonia breastfeeding women should stop breastfeeding before recovering or removing suspected cases, and breastfeeding should be prohibited during the use of antiviral drugs.

The novel coronavirus pneumonia was detected in novel coronavirus in January 31st by the three hospital research team in Shenzhen. The researchers further isolated and cultured the positive samples, and now the live virus has been isolated from the anal swab samples of patients.

Through the simultaneous determination of the sequence of the virus isolated from patients respiratory samples and fecal samples, it was found that they have more than 99% homology.

In addition, novel coronavirus pneumonia was detected in saliva and conjunctival secretion of new crown pneumonia patients. Experts warned that people should wear masks, pay attention to personal hygiene and wash their hands frequently.

Experts respond to the virus detected in patients feces: the toilet can be cleaned generally

For the general public, wash hands carefully before and after meals. If there is no confirmed diagnosis, asymptomatic patients or close contacts at home, the bathroom can be cleaned generally. The novel coronavirus pneumonia is a new disease and its understanding is constantly improving. We will pay close attention to the progress of the transmission route, and improve the prevention and control strategies and personal protective measures.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia, a vice president of the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of medicine, and Professor Shen Ye, an ophthalmology department leader, published a research online in February 26th in the Journal of Medical Virology (JournalofMedicalVirology). Fruit.
