Update - Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19)

1. Pandemic of Covid-19
The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared Covid-19 a pandemic on 11.03.2020.
It is expected that the infections will increase in the next days and weeks.

2. Occurrence and transmission
Current studies show that infectious virus can be isolated from the throat and lungs.
No infectious viruses are detected in stool, urine and blood.
