This new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 originated in Hubei Province, China and the disease caused by the virus is named COVID-19.

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness with symptoms that can range from the common cold to more serious diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).

How is COVID-19 spread?

COVID-19 is spread in three main ways:

  • Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus.
  • Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze.
  • Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with hands that have the virus on them.

How is the spread of COVID-19 reduced?

The key measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 are:

  • Good hygiene
  • Vaccination
  • Physical distancing
  • Testing
  • Wearing face masks
  • Use COVID Safe Check-In at businesses, events, and venues
