What is Covid-19?

Covid-19 is a coronavirus which can cause illness in both humans and animals. The effect of the virus on an individual varies from person to person. Covid-19 is highly contagious and spreads very quickly from person to person.

How can I contract Covid-19?

Covid-19 is thought to be transmitted through close contact with someone who is infected with the virus. This occurs through droplets produced when a person with coronavirus coughs or sneezes. Other people can then become infected with the virus by breathing in the droplets.

Transmission can also occur when a person touches nearby surfaces and objects where the droplets have landed, and then touches their eyes, nose or mouth.

What are the symptoms of Covid-19?

Symptoms may appear between 1-14 days after infection. You may not notice any symptoms until two weeks after you become infected with the coronavirus. Some people may experience no symptoms at all. It is possible to spread coronavirus to others without having any symptoms.

If present, symptoms of Covid-19 include:

  • A new, continuous cough
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath.
