COVID 19 - infection, symptoms and prevention

How does the coronavirus spread?

Human to human contagion mainly happens via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread.  Similarly to SARS and MERS, the human to human spread has been confirmed through close contact.


SARS-CoV-2 infections may result in symptoms ranging from mild, to severe with possible death. Symptoms may appear from to 2 to 14 days after exposure and include: loss/diminution of taste and smell, fever, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhoea.
