What is a coronavirus?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. It is a new virus and was unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.
What are the symptoms of coronavirus/COVID-19?
The most common symptoms are fever, tiredness, and a dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. Symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually.
Can someone be infected with coronavirus but demonstrate no symptoms?
Yes. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell.
How does coronavirus spread?
The disease spreads from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or exhales. Droplets land on objects and surfaces. If someone then touches the surface or object and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth, they can become infected. People can also catch coronavirus us by breathing in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs or exhales droplets. COVID-19 can also be spread through fecal matter.
How long does the virus survive on surfaces?
COVID-19 seems to behave like other coronaviruses on surfaces. Studies suggest that depending on conditions such as temperature and humidity, coronaviruses may live on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days.
How can I protect myself and others from COVID-19?
You can reduce your chances of catching or spreading coronavirus by taking some simple precautions:
- Wash your hands with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer several times a day.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Follow good respiratory hygiene. Cover your mouth and nose with a bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Immediately throw away your used tissue.
- If you feel unwell, stay at home.
- If possible, work from home. Avoid places with large groups of people.
- Avoid travel.
