Please read the following texts about the personal health risks of the coronavirus disease carefully. The texts are extracts from a newspaper article that was recently published by CNN.

[…] The novel coronavirus is now a "public health emergency of international concern," killing more than 3,000 people and infecting more than 88,000 worldwide.

[…] Fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat and trouble breathing are some of the most common symptoms of the novel coronavirus. "It can be more severe for some persons and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties," the World Health Organization says.

 […] There are many kinds of coronaviruses, including some that cause the common cold. But this deadly strain is called a "novel" coronavirus because it has not previously been identified in humans.
