COVID-19 is a new disease, so there is no existing immunity in our community. This means that COVID-19 can spread widely and quickly. While some people will recover easily, others may get very sick very quickly. People with coronavirus may experience symptoms such as fever, coughing, sore throat and shortness of breath.
The virus can spread from person to person through respiratory droplets. This means you can get the virus through close contact with an infectious person, contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze or touching objects or surfaces that have droplets from an infected person, and then touching your mouth or face.
