COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a coronavirus.
As of 11 March 2020 it is an ongoing pandemic, and is considered a Public Health Emergency of International Concern by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, tiredness, and dry cough, with some people having difficulty breathing. If you develop these symptoms, the WHO says you should try to seek medical care early to reduce the risk of a severe infection.
