In the city of Wuhan in China, the novel Coronavirus emerged at the end of 2019. On January 28, 2020, the Bavarian Ministry of Health confirmed an infection with the Coronavirus. This was the first time the virus was detected in Germany.
The Executive Board of the The Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences recommends to all members of the university that they closely follow the current information, travel and safety advice and monitor the situation.

The dangers of an infection with the Coronavirus are comparable to the dangers of an influenza virus. This means that especially people with previous illnesses, the elderly and children are at particular risk. Therefore, there is currently no reason for concern, but there is reason for increased caution, as should be the case if influenza is spreading.
