WHAT IS COVID-19?
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus (SARS CoV-2). The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and tiredness. Other symptoms that are less common and may affect some patients include aches and pains, nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, sore throat, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell or a rash on skin or discoloration of fingers or toes. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but only have very mild symptoms.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing hospital treatment. Around 1 out of every 5 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develop difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart and lung problems, diabetes, or cancer, are at higher risk of developing serious illness. However, anyone can be affected by COVID-19 and become seriously ill. People of all ages who experience fever and/or cough associated with breathing difficulty, shortness of breath, chest pain/pressure, or loss of speech or movement should seek medical attention immediately.
