Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) – Short Notice for Public

Coronaviruses are important human and animal pathogens. Common human coronaviruses are responsible for approximately one-third of mild to moderate community-acquired upper respiratory tract infections in adults, like the common cold. This information should not be confused with Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). COVID-19 is the third coronavirus outbreak following the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) outbreaks in the 21st century. COVID-19 is a type of illness that can mainly affect the respiratory system.  Patients with COVID-19 usually complain of fever, cough and feeling tired.

In order to be better informed about the training and practice issues within Internal Medicine, the European Board of Internal Medicine has created a survey on training in internal medicine aimed at current trainees or those who have completed training within the last ten years. It is hoped that the survey will inform future curriculum updates and identify subjects for future faculty training projects.
