Journal of Medical Virology 2020 March 14
In late December 2019, a cluster of unexplained pneumonia cases has been reported in Wuhan, China. A few days later, the causative agent of this mysterious pneumonia was identified as a novel coronavirus. This causative virus has been temporarily named as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and the relevant infected disease has been named as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by the World Health Organization respectively. The COVID-19 epidemic is spreading in China and all over the world now. The purpose of this review is primarily to review the pathogen, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of COVID-19, but also to comment briefly on the epidemiology and pathology based on the current evidences.

As in Influenza, especially in 1918, it was thought later that H. influenza bacterium contributed greatly to the death rate (virus was unknown). Assuming that to be true, are physicians also prescribing antibiotics to those who are symptomatic for Covid-19? If not, perhaps they should.

""Chinese herbal medicine formulae are used to prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection in 23 provinces in China"". It is better not choose these premedication methods. Also it is better not tasty strange foods in public events cause of globalization. As a review is a great work but we must be very careful at this moments in our preferences about the mortalities rates wordwide.
