What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a type of virus common across the world. Typical symptoms of COVID-19 include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
 
Generally, COVID-19 can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer, and chronic lung disease.
