What is it?
This is the official information given to us by the World Health Organisation.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
