Coronavirus: The Facts
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. COVID-19 is a respiratory illness primarily spread from person to person. COVID-19 symptoms can range from mild (or no symptoms) to severe illness. While multiple vaccines for COVID-19 are now approved, rapid diagnosis remains pivotal to minimising transmission.
