What is COVID-19?

The COVID-19 novel coronavirus is a new type of coronavirus that has not been previously identified. Like many emerging pathogens, it jumped from animals to human populations and has caused the current pandemic.

The COVID-19 virus is a respiratory pathogen that is highly contagious, and it is far more lethal than the flu virus.

The signature symptoms of COVID-19 disease are fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. If you think you are infected with the COVID-19 virus, call your doctor or healthcare provider to discuss how to proceed.
