(UPDATE) Frequently Asked Questions on human infection with A(H7N9) avian influenza virus, China
...How can individuals prevent A(H7N9) avian influenza infection?

Basic hygiene practices and food safety measures are prerequisites to prevent the transmission of many infectious diseases, including A(H7N9).
• Wash your hands often, especially: before, during, and after you prepare food; before you eat; after you use the toilet; after handling animals or animal waste; when your hands are dirty; and, more frequently, when someone in your home is sick.
• Hand hygiene is also necessary to prevent transmission in clinical settings to other patients and health care workers. Pathogens are removed by the mechanical action of hand washing. Alcohol disinfects (kills the pathogens).
• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
• In environments where any highly pathogenic avian influenza virus may be present, hand hygiene, which includes hand washing and the use of alcohol-based hand rubs, is critical to prevent possible viral inoculation of the nose, mouth and conjunctiva by contaminated hands...

(UPDATE) Receptor for new coronavirus found

...The nature of the DPP4 protein means that the virus could remain a persistent threat. The receptor protein is present in very similar versions in many mammals, including bats, non-human primates, and various domestic animals. The virus might therefore easily jump between species, and humans might continue to be reinfected from a potentially wide range of animal reservoirs. This aspect of DPP4 is consistent with results published last year showing that hCoV-EMC could infect bat, pig and human cells in vitro, an interspecies promiscuity not seen in the SARS virus or other coronaviruses...
