Corona Virus (COVID-19)



The coronavirus, or COVID-19, is inciting panic for a number of reasons. It’s a new virus, meaning no one has immunity, and there is no vaccine. Its novelty means that scientists aren’t sure yet how it behaves — they have little history to go on.

How it is transmitted?

  • It’s likely that the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) originated in an animal species, and then spread to humans.
  • Person to person spread of the novel corona virus is reported, but it is not yet understood how easily this happens.
  • Other human coronavirus strains are spread from person to person through contaminated droplets from a person who is sick with the illness (through coughing or sneezing) or contaminated hands.
