CoVs are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold caused by four human HCoVs that are endemic globally are HCoV-229E, HCoV-NL63, HCoV-HKU1 as well as HCoV-OC43, and more severe diseases caused by Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). The novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. CoVs are transmitted between animals and humans. Several known CoVs are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.
Respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties are the common signs of infection. Infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death, in more severe cases.
To prevent infection spread, regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs are the standard recommendations. Close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing must be restricted.
To know the detail about MERS and SARS CoV follow the link MERS and SERS CoV. The information presented here are, collected from pathogens safety data sheet Canada, presented without any change! WHO has published its interim guidance for laboratory biosafety related to 2019-nCoV/COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 that are available at Bangladesh Biosafety and Biosecurity Society (bdbiosafetysecurity.org).
Laboratory testing for SARS-CoV
The etiologic agent responsible for the cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan has been identified as a novel beta coronavirus, (in the same family as SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV) via next-generation sequencing (NGS) from cultured virus or directly from samples received from several pneumonia patients.
Electron microscopy revealed a virus with a characteristic crown morphology: a coronavirus. Working directly from sequence information, the team developed a series of genetic amplification (PCR) assays used by laboratories associated with the China CDC to detect several dozen cases as of today.
This quarterly Newsletter is dedicated to strengthening Biosafety and Biosecurity status in Bangladesh leading to sustainable development in Health and Agriculture.
