What is coronavirus disease 2019?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person.
How does the COVID-19 spread?
The virus that causes COVID-19 probably emerged from an animal source, but is now spreading from person to person. The virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads (cdc.gov).
