What is Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

  • A respiratory illness similar to flu (cough, fever, fatigue and aching body/muscles). More commonly than flu, it can become severe causing viral pneumonia (difficulty breathing).

  • 4 out of 5 people will have a mild illness and recover without treatment. The elderly and those with underlying health conditions have increased risk of severe illness. Cases in children are rare.

How does it spread?

You can pick up Coronavirus from:

  • Touching an infected surface or object. The virus can enter your body when you touch your nose, mouth and eyes.

  • Very close contact (1-2 metres) with a sick patient.
