What Is Coronavirus, Also Known As COVID-19?

The coronavirus, or COVID-19, originated in Wuhan City, China. According to the World Health Organisation, symptoms include "fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea." Coronavirus patients may not experience all of these and in many cases, the symptoms will occur gradually and be mild.

Ways To Protect Yourself from Coronavirus

There is no cure for the coronavirus at the moment, but there are plenty of hygiene practises you can follow to minimise your risk of catching it;

  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds frequently throughout the day, using hot soapy water.
  • If you have used public transport, use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing.
  • Dispose of any used tissues immediately.
  • Avoid direct contact with anyone showing symptoms of coronavirus.
