Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) refers to the cluster of viral pneumonia cases occurring since December 2019. According to an investigation by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a novel coronavirus is found to be the causative agent.
According to information provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), symptoms of the virus include fever, feeling of discomfort, dry cough, and shortness of breath. People of older age or those with an underlying health condition are at a higher risk of deterioration in serious condition.
The main mode of transmission is through respiratory droplets. The virus can also be transmitted through contact.
The "incubation period" is the time it takes for you to develop symptoms after catching the virus. Most estimates of the incubation period for COVID-19 range from 1 to 14 days, most commonly around 5 days. These estimates will be updated as more data become available.
Members of the public are urged to go out less and reduce social activities such as group meals or other gatherings and maintain appropriate social distance with other people as much as possible. When in places where social distancing is difficult or impossible, wearing a mask is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Maintaining strict personal and environmental hygiene is key to personal protection against infection and prevention of the spread of the disease in the community:
Stay at home and call your doctor if you are exhibiting flu-like symptoms such as a fever, dry cough, and/or shortness of breath.
