What is Coronavirus (COVID-19) and what are the symptoms?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which can cause respiratory illnesses ranging from the common cold to the more severe such as Severe Acute Respiratory Symptom (SARS).
The current issues are caused by a new strain of Coronavirus which broke out in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, causing the disease COVID-19. Knowledge about the strain is emerging but limited and advice based on experience with previous coronaviruses.
The Virus is spread by respiratory droplets in coughs and sneezes. It enters the body via the nose, mouth and eyes. It can survive on hard surfaces for up to 48hrs. A person, therefore, gets infected by breathing in droplets when facing an infected person or by touching their eyes, nose or mouth after touching surfaces or objects containing droplets.
Symptoms are likely to develop within 5 days but incubation (time from infection to symptoms) can be 1 to 14days after exposure. Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions are most at risk to develop the severe disease (high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes). Treatment focuses on symptom relieve. There is currently no cure or vaccine.
