About COVID-19

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. People who have COVID-19 can experience a range of symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, diarrhea, headache, and loss of smell or taste. Although most people with COVID-19 recover, others can become severely ill or even die. Research into COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and effects on health and society is ongoing.
