Novel coronavirus associated with severe respiratory disease: case definition and public health measures



Novel coronavirus associated with severe respiratory disease: case definition and public health measures



Euro Surveillance 17(39):



Two cases of rapidly progressive acute respiratory infection in adults associated with a novel coronavirus have generated an international public health response. The two infections were acquired three months apart, probably in Saudi Arabia and Qatar. An interim case definition has been elaborated and was published on the World Health Organization website on 25 September 2012.
