The majority of people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring any special treatment. Elderly people above the age of 60, and those with underlying medical conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

How does Coronavirus spread?

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it's important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

People with fever, cough or difficulty breathing should call their doctor and seek medical attention.

Maintain at least 1-metre distance between you and people coughing or sneezing.
