    Criteria to Guide Evaluation of Persons Under Investigation (PUI) for 2019-nCoV -- Recommendations for Reporting, Testing, and Specimen Collection -- Interim Healthcare Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Persons Under Investigation for 2019-nCoV -- Additional Resources.

    Updated February 12, 2020

    Limited information is available to characterize the spectrum of clinical illness associated with 2019-nCoV. No vaccine or specific treatment for 2019-nCoV infection is available; care is supportive.

    The CDC clinical criteria for a 2019-nCoV person under investigation (PUI) have been developed based on what is known about MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV and are subject to change as additional information becomes available.

    Health care providers should obtain a detailed travel history for patients being evaluated with fever and acute respiratory illness. CDC guidance for evaluating and reporting a PUI for MERS-CoV remains unchanged.

    On February 11, 2020 the World Health Organization announced an official name for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak, COVID-19. CDC will be updating our website and other CDC materials to reflect the updated name.
