Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are known to cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). In late 2019, a new strain of coronavirus that has not been previously identified in humans was identified in China – it is called the 2019-nCoV virus.
coronaviruses are spread from someone with confirmed coronavirus to other close
contacts with that person through contaminated droplets spread by coughing or
sneezing, or by contact with contaminated hands, surfaces or objects.
time between when a person is exposed to the virus and when symptoms first
appear is typically 5 to 6 days, although may range from 2 to 14 days. For this
reason, people who might have been in contact with a confirmed case are being
asked to self-isolate for 14 days.
COVID-19 cases appear to be spread from people who have symptoms. A small
number of people may have been infectious before their symptoms developed.
The most common symptom is a fever. Other symptoms include: a cough, sore throat and shortness of breath. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia with severe acute respiratory distress.
