Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease. The disease causes respiratory illness with symptoms such as a cough, fever and difficulty breathing.

What you can do to prevent yourself from this virus:  wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds  with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub, cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze, avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell, stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell.

What you should not do is touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean!.
