What is Covid19?

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a virus called SARS-CoV-2 that was first discovered in 2019. It spreads through respiratory droplets or small particles, released when someone who is infected talks, sings, coughs, sneezes, or breathes.

This happens within enclosed spaces with inadequate ventilation.
