The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel (new) coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. On March 11, the World Health Organization declared the rapidly spreading coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.
Symptoms associated with the virus are mild to severe fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
