COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that can affect the lungs and respiratory tract. It is caused by a virus called coronavirus.
The outbreak began in Wuhan, China in December 2019, and the virus, like others of its genus, is thought to have come from animals.
Since this is such a new disease, experts are still not sure how it spreads. But similar viruses spread in cough droplets. Therefore it is recommended to cover the nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing and it is recommended to immediately dispose of used tissues. Viruses like coronavirus cannot live outside the body for a long time.
The NHS states that the symptoms are: dry cough, high fever and shortness of breath – but these symptoms do not necessarily mean that you have the disease. Watch out for flu-like symptoms, such as aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose and sore throat. It is important to remember that some people may become infected but will not develop any symptoms or feel bad.
What precautions can be taken?
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. The NHS also recommends covering the mouth and nose with a handkerchief or sleeve (not hands) when coughing or sneezing; immediately put used fabrics in the basket and try to avoid close contact with people who are not well. Also avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth unless your hands are clean.
