Coronavirus Guide

A coronavirus can cause respiratory symptoms that are similar to a cold or the flu. The virus responsible for the current outbreak is called SARS-CoV-2. It’s the same virus that caused an epidemic in 2003, which was referred to as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The new virus is spreading more easily and faster than the one that caused SARS. It’s also spreading more than the SARS CoV-1 virus during its outbreak.

Aerosols are very small droplets or particles that are released by a person suffering from the virus when they cough, sneeze, or talk. The virus can be floating for several hours in the air. It is possible to breathe it in or rub it on surfaces. People can contract the virus by touching an infected surface or person, breathing in the virus or putting their hands in their mouth, eyes, or nose. Some people do not show any signs, and might not even know they have the disease. Some people can become extremely ill.

Most people get a coronavirus at least once in their lives, typically as children. Most cases are minor and resolve on their own, but some can be severe or even fatal. Scientists are trying to find a cure.
