Prevention is hand hygiene (washing with soap for at least 20 seconds or applying alcohol disinfectant to dry hands, including fingertips), in risky places with the possible presence of people from China, such as a plane and a protective face mask. It is important to avoid sites with known transmission of the new coronavirus in China, not to eat undercooked food while in that country, and to avoid contact with animals. Although Chinese and international scientific institutions have begun activities to prepare a vaccine against a new coronavirus infection, its development will take a minimum of 4 months and further necessary efficacy and safety testing for even longer. Therefore, in a key period of the coming months, the possibility of preventive vaccination to protect public health will not be available.
