Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Maine Center for Disease Control are closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (named “2019-nCoV”) that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which continues to expand. Chinese health officials have reported thousands of infections with 2019-nCoV in China, with the virus reportedly spreading from person-to-person in many parts of that country. Infections with 2019-nCoV, most of them associated with travel from Wuhan, also are being reported in a growing number of international locations, including the United States.

Maine hospitals are working with governmental organizations to keep abreast of the latest information about this novel virus.  This page includes resources for providers and patients.
