COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, is a contagious respiratory illness primarily spread through saliva or nasal discharge when an infected person coughs or sneezes (World Health Organization). Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and may include:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Most people infected with the Coronavirus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without special treatment (WHO). Older adults and people with certain underlying medical conditions (such as heart or lung disease) seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications once infected (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
