What Is Coronavirus COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a coronavirus, a type of virus common in both humans and many species of animal, which causes flu-like symptoms.
Coronaviruses are not usually transmitted from animals to people, but COVID-19 is a disease that has not previously been identified in humans. However, it is similar to the SARS outbreak of 2002 in that it is a coronavirus that causes contagious respiratory disease.
The first cases of COVID-19 were recorded in Wuhan, China, before it began to spread to countries around the world, and the situation was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11th, 2020. To date, over 8 million infections have been reported worldwide.

However, certain at-risk groups such as the eledery and those with underlying health conditions are more vulnerable to the disease, and should be wary of exposure.
