Coronavirus - Recommendations for Hosting Units

Preventive Measures

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause disease in humans. The infection can be similar to the common flu or present as a more serious illness, such as pneumonia. It is known that person-to-person transmission exists.

What are the symptoms?

They are usually fever, cough and shortness of breath, and complications such as pneumonia and bronchitis can occur in elderly patients or in chronic patients, since the virus reduces their immune system.

All patients identified to date have been in Wuhan, in Hubei province, China or have had direct contact with sick people from that area.

The virus incubation time can last between 2 to 14 days.

Accommodation units that receive guests from Asia and especially from Wuhan, Hubei province, China, for less than 14 days should be aware and if they detect any of the symptoms mentioned:
