What is coronavirus?
Coronavirus disease (covid-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Most people infected with covid-19 may experience mild to moderate respiratory symptoms and recover without requiring aggressive treatment. However, some people may become seriously ill and require medical attention and/or hospitalization. People with underlying conditions such as cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory illnesses, and cancer may be more likely to develop serious illnesses. Although elderly people and people with underlying conditions may be more susceptible, anyone can become ill from coronavirus (covid-19).
