What is Coronavirus?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause respiratory infections. These can range from the common cold to more serious diseases.
COVID-19 is the disease caused by a new coronavirus. It was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan City in China.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild illness to pneumonia. Some people will recover easily, and others may get very sick very quickly.
What you can do to protect yourself and others
- Practise good hygiene: this will protect against infection and prevent the virus spreading. This includes washing hands frequently, covering coughs, putting tissues straight into a bin, avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth, cleaning regularly used objects and surfaces and ventilating your home or workspace.
- Social distancing: this is also called physical distancing. The more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread.
- Stay at home unless you are: going to work or education, shopping for essential supplies such as groceries, going out for exercise in the neighbourhood or attending a medical appointment or compassionate visit.
