Opinion: How bad is the coronavirus?

Saahir Khan, MD, PhD, UCI Assistant Clinical Professor of Infectious Diseases, conducts research on respiratory viruses and writes, “So what should we do?  Wash our hands.  Cover our mouths if we’re coughing or sneezing.  Wipe down surfaces.  Don’t go to work or go out in public if we’re sick.  Call the doctor if the fever doesn’t go away or for difficulty breathing or feeling faint. We should not panic.”
