What is the Coronavirus?

An illness that is a cousin to the flu, the Coronavirus could bring coughing, fever, and difficulty breathing. For most people, the virus doesn’t stay long and they get better with little treatment. But for some, like the old people and those who are sick, they could get very ill.

To protect these people, we need to stop the spread of the Coronavirus by washing our hands with soap and water as often as possible for 20 seconds, avoid touching our faces, staying at home as much as possible, and wearing a mask when we leave home.
