Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air and quickly fall on floors or surfaces.

You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Meanwhile, the Coronavirus continues to spread across the world, with more than 48 million confirmed cases in 190 countries and about 1.2 million deaths.

The virus is surging in many regions and countries that had apparent success in suppressing initial outbreaks are also seeing infections rise again.

Coronavirus cases have risen over the last few months in several regions of the world. Europe is currently seeing the steepest rise in new cases.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned the global death toll could hit two million before an effective vaccine is widely in use.
