Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.
The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.

What is Coronavirus?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a dangerous disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people affected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to mild respiratory illness and recover without needing special treatment. Older people and those with underlying healing problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory illness, and cancer are more likely to develop severe illness.
The best way to stop and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it makes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from germs by washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub frequently and not affecting your face.

The COVID-19 virus grows primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).
At this time, there are no special vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, many ongoing clinical trials are evaluating potential therapies. WHO will continue to provide updated knowledge as soon as clinical findings become available.

How long does the coronavirus last on surfaces?
