By James VavreckAmber Ritter,Amber LinscottAssociated PressAmber Rose RitterAssociated PressAugust 6, 2018The CDC has launched a new coronovirus research effort in Mississippi, which has seen more than 200 cases of the virus.
Mississippi is the first state to join a federal-state partnership, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Missouri is the second.
Mississippi will have its own partnership with the CDC after the state signed on last month to a new agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which includes $1.5 million in funding to help Mississippi combat the virus, said Dr. Richard J. Dolan, the Mississippi State Public Health Director.
Missisippi has seen a resurgence in coronaviruses in recent years.
Its first case was reported in May, after the CDC began a coronaviral research effort.
Mississippi officials say the state has not seen any new cases since then.
The CDC says the partnership will focus on coronavira-preventing and controlling the spread of coronavirene, or the virus’ main form.
The agency says it has been working with the Mississippi Public Health Department, the Department of Public Health, the Alabama Department of Natural Resources and the Mississippi Department of Labor to develop strategies for public health responses.
In the United States, coronavires are transmitted through the air.
The virus can be spread by direct contact with infected saliva, cough or sneeze, as well as coughing and sneezing during or after coughing or sneezer, according to the CDC.
The virus can also be transmitted through contact with an infected body part, such as a person’s eye or nose, or through close contact with contaminated surfaces, such a clothing, a handbag, a person, or other body part.
