About the Coronavirus
- It causes symptoms comparable to those associated with seasonal influenza viruses (fever, chills, cough).
- It can cause complications such as pneumonia that are potentially life threatening and require hospitalization. Those who are at “high risk” of developing such complications are people 65 years and older, people of any age with certain medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, or compromised immune systems, pregnant women, and children younger than 5 years (especially those younger than 2 years old).
- The virus appears to have an incubation period (between infection and symptoms) from 2 to 14 days.
- Person to person transmission.
