Prevailing symptoms include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. Early reports indicated acuteness of the illness was connected to people over 60 or those with a complicated medical history.

WHO has published guidance for patient management which includes guidance for temporary clinical caring for hospitalised patients and guidance for treatment at home if the health care system is breaking down.
