COVID-19 : WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW

The COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‑CoV‑2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. As of 28 May 2020, more than 5.8 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported in more than 188 countries and territories, resulting in more than 359,000 deaths; more than 2.39 million people have recovered.

The virus is primarily spread between people during close contact, most often via small droplets produced by coughing, sneezing, and talking. The droplets usually fall to the ground or onto surfaces rather than traveling through air over long distances. Less commonly, people may become infected by touching a contaminated surface and then touching their face. It is most contagious during the first three days after the onset of symptoms, although the spread is possible before symptoms appear, and from people who do not show symptoms. - Wikipedia
