COVID-19 Definition and Symptoms

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, either between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) or through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The following symptoms may appear within 2-14 days after exposure:

  • Fever and/or Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Shortness of Breath / Breathing Difficulties

In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
