COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) is a respiratory illness caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It belongs to the family of coronaviruses that also include the viruses that cause Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).
COVID-19 primarily spreads through respiratory droplets that are released when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes. The droplets can travel up to six feet and can be inhaled by another person, or land on surfaces, which can then be touched by a person, who can then touch their mouth, nose or eyes and contract the virus.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory viruses, such as the flu, and include fever, cough, fatigue, and shortness of breath. However, COVID-19 is more contagious and can cause more severe illness than the flu, especially in people who are older or have underlying medical conditions.
Prevention measures for COVID-19 include wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, washing hands frequently, avoiding large gatherings, and getting vaccinated. It is important to follow these measures to prevent the spread of the virus and protect yourself and others from getting sick.
