- Covid-19 is the illness that a person infected with the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) can develop.
- There is currently no vaccine for the coronavirus.
- The virus is thought to spread primarily between people within six feet of one another, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
- It is possible for people who are infected to infect others before they show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) or without ever showing any symptoms (asymptomatic).
