Reducing the risks of corona virus
A delicate but highly contagious virus, is spreading rapidly from person to person around the world. The coronavirus (COVID-19), has already infected people in at least 60 countries.
Few children appear to have developed severe symptoms so far, with the median age of patients being between 45-56 years old. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person – mainly between people who are in close contact with one another and through respiratory droplets when an infected person sneezes or coughs.
The virus that causes COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily in the community in some affected geographic areas. Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.
