Coronavirus: Treatment and care
How do you test for it?
Before being tested for the deadly virus, patients must first answer a series of questions.
How do you treat it?
Fox News received an in-depth look at the new disease from Dr. Debra Chew, a former epidemic intelligence officer for the CDC and an assistant professor of medicine at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
Is there a cure?
Health agencies recommend patients receive supportive care to relieve coronavirus symptoms.
What is chloroquine?
Chloroquine and a similar drug, hydroxychloroquine, have shown encouraging signs in small, early tests against the coronavirus, but they have yet to be studied during a controlled clinical trial.
Doc warns against DIY coronavirus remedies
Several medications are being investigated, but that doesn't mean you should run out and buy them unprescribed, or try to recreate them in your home. Doing so could have dire consequences.
Do pneumonia shots protect against it?
Former CDC Chief Medical Officer Dr. Robert Amler told Fox News that a pneumonia shot will not be effective in staving off pneumonia caused by coronavirus.
How do you care for a relative who has it?
Even if the patient does test positive, it can be considered safe to continue supporting them with some extra precautions.
What if someone in my family has it?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that if anyone in your house has tested positive, everyone in the house should self-quarantine for a minimum of 14 days or longer until the patient has no more symptoms and tests negative.
What happens after you recover from it?
A negative test doesn't always mean the patient is free of the virus.
What about my pets?
While the veterinary community is still dealing largely with unknowns amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, most of what they do know might come as a relief to pet owners.
