Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that usually cause mild respiratory illnesses, such as the common cold. Some coronaviruses have caused more severe illness, such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndromes (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). 

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a new virus strain that was not identified in humans before December 2019. COVID-19 is a public health concern because little is known about the virus and it has the potential to cause severe illness in some people

  • Currently, there is no vaccine available to prevent COVID-19 infection and there are no proven, safe medications for treating COVID-19.
