COVID-19

All you need to know about the Coronavirus

COVID-19 is a virus that was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019; and has been classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO). It is a new evolving strain that is spreading rapidly across the globe, and from person to person.

Symptoms may include a runny nose, cough, sore throat, possibly a headache and fever. It also spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it is important to practice respiratory etiquette, like coughing into a flexed elbow.

Everyone is at risk of infection, so it is necessary to stay informed, practice good hygiene and to adhere to the advice given by authorities and healthcare practitioners.
