What is a coronavirus? (from who.int)

In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes COVID-19, a new virus and disease unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

COVID-19’s most common symptoms are fever, dry cough and tiredness. Other less common symptoms 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 with COVID-19 but only have very mild symptoms. Most people (about 80 percent) recover without needing hospital treatment. About 20 become 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.
