COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a coronavirus.

As of 11 March 2020 it is an ongoing pandemic[1], and is considered a Public Health Emergency of International Concern[2] by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, tiredness, and dry cough, with some people having difficulty breathing[3]. If you develop these symptoms, the WHO says you should try to seek medical care early to reduce the risk of a severe infection[3].

The WHO Situation Reports are daily reports providing the latest information and WHO recommendations.
