Abstract

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (CoV) has constituted a public health emergency of international concern. Coronavirus belongs to the genus Coronavirus with its high mutation rate in the Coronaviridae. The epidemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) originating in Wuhan, China, has become a major public health challenge not only for China but also for countries around the world. Infection control measures are necessary to prevent the virus from spreading further and to help control the epidemic situation. For dental practices and hospitals in areas that are (potentially) affected by COVID-19, strict and effective infection control protocols are urgently needed.
