What is COVID-19?
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
How will COVID-19 affect me?
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment, however, due to its fast spread through the body, older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
How can I protect myself from the risks of COVID-19?
Although there is currently no confirmed cure for COVID-19, we, as members of the public can protect ourselves, and others from the risks of moderate, to severe illness through prioritizing personal self-health, and hygiene in order to shield our body against contagious viruses and bacteria, that are transmitted through either air, or direct contact. This natural mechanism of resistance is known as our immune function, and acts as our primary defense system against various diseases.
