What are the WHO's recommendations for countries?

WHO encourages all countries to enhance their surveillance for severe acute respiratory infections (SARI), to carefully review any unusual patterns of SARI or pneumonia cases and to notify WHO of any suspected or confirmed case of infection with the novel coronavirus.

Countries are encouraged to continue strengthening their preparedness for health emergencies in line with the International Health Regulations (2005).

Can humans become infected with a novel coronavirus of animal source?

Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans in China in 2002 and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.  As surveillance improves around the world, more coronaviruses are likely to be identified.

Bananas with a touch of green can help promote healthy gut bacteria.


When you’re suffering from diarrhea or vomiting, your body’s potassium levels can become depleted. Potassium is an important mineral that balances the amount of water in your body and keeps your cells in tip-top shape.

Bananas to the rescue: “Try looking for bananas that are a little more green than yellow,” Ghannoum suggested. Unripe bananas “have more resistant starch, which encourages the growth of good bacteria in the gut.”

Eat This: White Rice

Rice is another bland food that will give your digestive tract a much-needed breather. It’s full of starch and low in fiber, making it a perfect “binding” food to harden your poop following a bout of diarrhea, De Latour said. Rice is also an excellent food for easing your body back into eating solid foods again.

Eat This: Oatmeal

Besides being super bland and gentle on the stomach, oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which pulls water into the digestive tract, helping to bulk up poop and regulate how quickly food is sent through the body.

Oatmeal also contains selenium, which helps protect the body from infection, and zinc, the immune system’s partner in fighting off unwelcome bacteria and viruses.

Avoid: Beans

“Sugars present in beans, called alpha-galactosidase, can irritate stomach issues, such as diarrhea, gas, and cramping,” Ghannoum said. This is because the body may not synthesize enough of the necessary gas-reducing enzyme to fully digest these sugars.

Avoid: Bran

Bran is high in insoluble fiber, which doesn’t dissolve or gel in water, so it has a tendency to send food through the bowels at a speedier pace — not an ideal outcome when you’re already living on the throne. The same goes for granola, brown rice, and whole wheat pasta.

When You Have A Stomachache, Nausea or Diarrhea

Avoid: Dairy Foods

Put down the milk if you have a stomachache! Dairy can intensify diarrhea, bloating and abdominal pain.


Dairy foods contain lactose, which the stomach breaks down with the help of a digestive enzyme called lactase.

“In the setting of gastroenteritis with diarrhea, the lactase enzyme can become temporarily depleted due to inflammation in the lining of the gut (where the enzyme is located),” said Rabia De Latour, gastroenterologist and assistant professor of medicine at NYU Langone Health.

Eating dairy when your stomach’s already feeling iffy can intensify symptoms such as diarrhea, bloating and abdominal pain.

Eat This: Honey

Not only can its soothing texture help relieve a sore, itchy throat, but “honey is a natural cough suppressant,” Wellenstein said, and may be just as effective as over-the-counter methods.

Bonus: A 2013 review published in the Iran Journal of Basic Medical Science suggests that honey has antibacterial qualities that can help the body fight off pesky germs.

Eat This: Eggs

Not only are eggs super easy to swallow, but they contain both vitamin D and zinc, a dynamic duo that works with the immune system to show invading viruses and bacteria who’s boss.

Plus, the protein that eggs provide gets broken down into amino acids, which are then upcycled into antibodies and other proteins that offer additional help to your immune system.

Avoid: Citrus Fruits

While citrus fruits provide a good boost of vitamin C, their high acidity can irritate a sore throat.


Eating citrus fruits when you’re sick can be tricky. On one hand, doing so can reload your body with vitamin C, as well as electrolytes like potassium, which you may be running low on.

On the other, “the acidity levels found in oranges and grapefruit may further irritate the throat,” Wellenstein said, so you may want to score your vitamin C and electrolytes from other sources until your throat feels better.
