What is Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan (Hubei province, China).

The first case of COVID-19 was reported on December 31 and the source of the outbreak has been linked to a wet market in Wuhan.

Human-to-human and patient-to-medical staff transmission of the virus have been confirmed. Many of the associated fatalities have been due to pneumonia caused by the virus.

Cases of the virus have been confirmed in numerous countries and territories worldwide. Virus-screening and quarantining measures are being implemented at airports worldwide, as well as extensive travel restrictions. On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the global outbreak a pandemic.

There is currently no vaccine to protect against COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to take everyday preventive actions, like avoiding close contact with people – especially those who are sick – and washing your hands often. There is no specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 can seek medical care to help relieve symptoms.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator border_width=”3″ css=”.vc_custom_1590085980529{padding-bottom: 25px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.

These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure (based on the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses).

  • fever
  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • Muscle aches
  • Sore throat
How can I help protect myself from COVID-19?

People can help protect themselves from respiratory illness with everyday preventive actions including social distancing.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.

How does COVID-19 spread?

The virus that causes COVID-19 probably emerged from an animal source, but is now spreading from person to person.

The virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Frequently Asked Questions

 

What does COVID-19 stand for?

In COVID-19, ‘CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for the disease. The name of this disease is coronavirus disease 2019, abbreviated as COVID-19.

On February 11, 2020, the World Health Organization announced an official name for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak, first identified in Wuhan, China.

Formerly, this disease was referred to as “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV”.

There are many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans.

What is the recovery time for the coronavirus COVID-19 disease?

Using available preliminary data, the median time from onset to clinical recovery for mild cases is approximately 2 weeks and is 3-6 weeks for patients with severe or critical disease.

Preliminary data suggest that the time period from onset to the development of severe disease, including hypoxia, is 1 week. Among patients who have died, the time from symptom onset to outcome ranges from 2-8 weeks.

How is COVID-19 diagnosed?

Diagnosis may be difficult with only a physical exam because mild cases of COVID-19 may appear similar to the flu or a bad cold. A laboratory test can confirm the diagnosis.

In deciding whether or not it’s appropriate for you to be tested for the new coronavirus, the doctor will consider risk factors, such as your age, your general health, where you live and work, your travel history and your symptoms.

You are most likely to get a COVID-19 test if you have symptoms and you are:

  • Experiencing severe symptoms such as very high fever or breathing difficulties that require care in a hospital.
  • Living with certain health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, chronic lung disease, chronic kidney disease, and immunosuppressive therapy.
  • Working in a health care environment and providing direct care to patients.
