    COVID-19 General information

    Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which cause respiratory illnesses. The common coronaviruses that infect humans cause symptoms of the common cold: low grade fever, cough, sneezing and a runny nose. COVID-19 is a new virus that we haven’t seen before. Many of the patients in the outbreak in Wuhan, China reportedly had some link to a large seafood and animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. However, a growing number of patients reportedly have not had exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread is occurring. At this time, it’s unclear how easily this virus is spreading between people.

    Confirmed COVID-19 patients, have documented illnesses ranging from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying. Most common symptoms may include: fever, coughing, shortness of breath & difficulty breathing, runny nose, headache, general feeling of not being well
