What is COVID-19?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, causes respiratory illness in people. It can spread from person to person through “respiratory droplets” that occur when an infected person sneezes or coughs. Symptoms range from mild to severe. Common symptoms that present 2 to 14 days after exposure include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency on January 30, 2020.

In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19. That virus, called the novel coronavirus, is also known as SARS-CoV-2.
