Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Common symptoms include:

  • fever
  • tiredness
  • dry cough.
  • Other symptoms include:
  • shortness of breath
  • aches and pains
  • sore throat
  • and very few people will report diarrhoea, nausea or a runny nose.

To prevent infection and to slow transmission of COVID-19, do the following:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, or clean them with alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Maintain at least 1 metre distance between you and people coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell.
  • Practice physical distancing by avoiding unnecessary travel and staying away from large groups of people.
  • Sharing food and school items like pencils (some children have the habit of chewing the backside of the pen or pencil they are using)
  • Being in direct contact with an infected tissue, dirt, or garbage

At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. WHO will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical findings become available. – Source WHO.
