Quick facts about COVID-19

  • COVID-19 is the condition caused by the virus, SARS-CoV2. It is a respiratory illness.
  • High risk groups for the virus include older people and people who are ill or immunocompromised.
  • COVID-19 can spread through touch. Once it is on your hands it is easy to spread it to your mouth, nose or eyes when you touch your face. 
  • COVID-19 can also spread through air through short distances. You can breathe it in after someone who has it coughs or sneezes near you. The virus can travel through the air for up to two meters before it falls to the ground.
  • Regular surgical masks are designed to protect the wearer from spreading the virus to others around them, not to prevent you from becoming sick.
  • Symptoms may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure. Experts generally believe that a person is most contagious when showing symptoms.
  • Symptoms include fever, dry cough and sometimes difficulty breathing.
