      COVID-19 Likely Worse for Vapers, Smokers

      Smokers and vapers who get COVID-19 can probably expect a more severe infection, health experts warn.

      Many advisories have focused on the risk facing older people, those with chronic conditions such as diabetes, and people with compromised immune systems, such as cancer patients. But doctors also caution that users of electronic cigarettes and tobacco are more in danger from the new coronavirus than the average healthy person.

      Things you can do right now to stop the spread of coronavirus

      There is no coronavirus vaccine and, after seeing what it's done and is still doing in countries like China, Iran and Italy, the virus has sparked widespread fear in the U.S.

      The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention has maintained that the most effective way to prevent transmission is by avoiding any exposure to the virus.

      TRUMP ISSUES GUIDELINES TO SLOW DISEASE SPREAD

      But that directive seems far easier said than done. Most Americans will still have to go to the supermarket to buy groceries, plumbers will have to make house calls and many municipal workers still have to report for duty.

      From one recent corporate conference in Boston, where 175 people gathered, for instance, the new coronavirus spread to more than 100 people.

      Although not every gathering will be so contagious, it’s impossible to know ahead of time who is going to be coughing or sneezing, and remember: You don’t have to have symptoms to be infected and contagious.

      These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

      Your best defense against coronavirus

      Washing your hands is the best way to protect against the novel coronavirus, according to doctors and health officials, as the virus continues to spread around the globe.

      Why it matters: Frequent hand washing can stop germs from spreading in a community, a known preventative for COVID-19 and influenza.

      Pro tip: Scrub wet hands with soap for at least 20 seconds (humming the 'Happy Birthday' song twice), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends.

      Orange County declares emergency over coronavirus outbreak

      Orange County has declared a local health emergency in response to the novel coronavirus, which has killed thousands globally, officials announced Wednesday.

      The move is largely in response to a proposal to move coronavirus patients to a facility in Costa Mesa, which has sparked a bitter court battle, Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Michelle Steel and Vice Chairman Andrew Do said at a news conference. At the center of the dispute is a proposal to use the Fairview Developmental Center as a coronavirus quarantine site, an idea that drew swift and fierce condemnation from city, county, state and federal officials representing the area.

      Coronavirus' Top Targets: Men, Seniors, Smokers

      Viruses can strike one group more severely than another. The 1918 flu, which claimed 50 million lives worldwide, particularly affected young adults. The Zika outbreak that raged through Brazil in 2015-2016 had an especially devastating effect on pregnant women, attacking the brains of the fetuses they carried.

      COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus that originated in China, appears to get more dangerous with age, says Michael Mina, MD, PhD, an assistant professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

      World Health Officials Deliver Ominous Warning About Spread Of Coronavirus

      With clusters of coronavirus cases showing up around the world outside of China, the World Health Organization has issued an ominous warning about stopping the growing spread of the disease.

      The warning came on Friday while there were also several developments involving the disease in Northern California — an epicenter in the United States for treating victims who have contracted coronavirus.

      The WHO warned that the clusters not directly linked to travel, such as the ones in South Korea, Italy and Iran, suggest that time may be running out to contain the outbreak.

      Coronaviruses: How long they might linger on contaminated surfaces

      Concerns are mounting about how long the novel coronavirus may survive on surfaces -- so much so that China's central bank has taken measures to deep clean and destroy its cash, which changes hands multiple times a day, in an effort to contain the virus.

      It is unknown exactly how long the novel coronavirus can linger on contaminated surfaces and objects with the potential of infecting people, but some researchers are finding clues by studying the elusive behaviors of other coronaviruses.

      Coronavirus effecting business

      CNBC’s Jim Cramer said business leaders he has spoken to are deeply worried about the coronavirus outbreak, citing as evidence the cancellation of the Mobile World Congress. “The people I know who were supposed to go there, it was kind of like a cruise — I’m not going there. I’m not going to risk going to Barcelona,” he said on “Squawk on the Street.” Cramer said the MWC cancellation shows how executives are viewing the situation with regards to their own health, not just the welfare of their employees.
