Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and with a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 26 to 32 kilobases.
What are the symptons?
It is similar to any other upper-respiratory infection, that includes:
- Runny nose,
- exacerbated asthma,
- sore throat, and sometimes a fever.
In most cases, you won’t know whether you have a coronavirus or a common cold
What is the treatment?

- However, one can prevent coronavirus infection, by avoiding the common cold:
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Keep your hands and fingers away from your eyes, nose, and mouth.

- Take acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen to reduce pain and fever.
- Drink fluids.
How can your local Jan-Pro Franchisee Help?
Jan-Pro’s Franchisees use the proprietary Enviroshield™ process, a non-toxic category 4 disinfectant. Based on testing of similar viruses, this process should be effective against the Wuhan Coronavirus since it is ‘enveloped’ and has a genetic connection among the family of coronaviruses. Jan-Pro’s Enviroshield™ process was proven effective against the enveloped Swine Flu Virus (H1N1) in testing, so we are confident that it will be similarly effective against Coronavirus, which is also an enveloped virus.
