What is Covid 19?
Covid 19 stands for coronavirus disease 2019. It’s caused by a virus called Sars CO V 2. The virus first appeared in late 2019 and quickly spread around the world.
Because the infection affects the lungs and can lead to pneumonia, people with Covid 19 can have a fever, cough, trouble breathing, and other symptoms related to pneumonia.
Most people who get Covid 19 will not get severely ill, but some do. Because Covid 19 can be spread to others, to slow the spread of the virus many areas have asked us to stay home and stay away from other people.
