“The fight against rumours and misinformation is a vital part of the battle against this virus.” – World Health Organisation’s Director-General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

 

What is the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

According to the World Health Organisation, “Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. A novel coronavirus (nCoV [COVID-19]) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

How does it spread?

The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, from sneezing or coughing. This means that the virus can spread from touching surfaces and then your nose or mouth as well as by breathing these droplets in.

Should I be worried about catching COVID-19?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has issued the following information: 

“Illness due to COVID-19 infection is generally mild, especially for children and young adults. However, it can cause serious illness: about 1 in every 5 people who catch it need hospital care”.
