Novel Coronavirus Disease COVID-19
COVID-19 is a new disease caused by a coronavirus, SARS-CoV2, that is spreading throughout the world. It may cause mild illness, but can also cause severe respiratory illness and even death, especially in older adults and people of any age with serious medical conditions.
COVID-19 is spread primarily when an infected person talks, sneezes, or coughs. It can be spread by people with no symptoms, or before they have symptoms. You may also be able to get it by touching a surface that has the virus on it, then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
