COVID-19 सम्बन्धी जानकारी

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China's Hubei province, and has since spread globally, resulting in the ongoing 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate symptoms.

Common symptoms some people may experience:

  • fever
  • aches and pains
  • tiredness
  • nasal congestion
  • dry cough
  • runny nose
  • sore throat

On average it takes 5–6 days from when someone is infected with the virus for symptoms to show, however it can take up to 14 days.

Protect yourself and others around you by knowing the facts and taking appropriate precautions. Follow advice provided by your local public health agency.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Maintain a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell.
