What is the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus strain spreading from person-to-person in similar ways as the common cold or flu, such as coughing or sneezing. Symptoms of COVID-19 illness can range from mild to severe and appear 2-14 days after exposure. Similar to other viral respiratory illnesses, symptoms generally include (but not limited to) fever, cough, shortness of breath headache, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, joint pain and new loss of taste and smell. Transmission is person to person via respiratory droplets, touching infected object then touching your own mouth, nose, eyes.
Most people will recover on their own, but some people can develop more serious complications, such as pneumonia, and require medical care or hospitalization. Older people and people with chronic illnesses are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19.
