At the same time, there are acute respiratory infection symptoms such as fever (axillary temperature ≥ 37.3 ℃), cough, shortness of breath, and a history of travel or residence in Wuhan, or a patient who has been exposed to fever with respiratory symptoms from Wuhan within 14 days before the onset of the disease, or a small-scale aggregation of the disease, should go to the local designated medical institutions for screening, diagnosis and treatment.
What should we pay attention to when we go to the hospital？
The disease and medical treatment process should be described in detail, especially the recent travel and living history of Wuhan, the contact history of pneumonia patients or suspected patients, and the contact history of animals. Surgical masks should be worn throughout the diagnosis and treatment.
