Dr. Joel McKinsey of Research Medical Center on coronavirus

Research Medical Center--part of HCA Midwest Health--believes that awareness, sound clinical advice and expertise are powerful to staying healthy this new year, especially in light of a new, deadly and contagious virus, coronavirus.

The human coronavirus is a contagious virus with symptoms similar to the common cold. Getting a coronavirus may not feel any different than having a common cold or flu, and patients that have it may never actually know that it is a coronavirus and not a standard cold because symptoms are similar.

Any time you or someone close to you becomes ill with cold or flu symptoms that worsen, seek medical attention with your physician, an urgent care center, Care Now or Care Navigator for an online consultation.
