WHAT IS CORONAVIRUS COVID-19?
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that causes illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases.
It is zoonotic, meaning that it was transmitted from animal to human. It is now sure that the disease can be transmitted from human to human.
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, coughing, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Wash your hands very often;
Cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve or with a tissue when you cough or sneeze;
Use single-use tissues, and then throw them away;
Do not shake hands or greet people with kisses on the cheek;
Avoid gatherings, reduce travel and contacts.
