Coronavirus killed 174,336 people up to now (that’s 4 times the population of my hometown), and we don't know when it’s going to stop.
Coronavirus or COVID-19 is a viral illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called Coronavirus and is spread in sneeze or cough droplets.
Viruses can be easily spread to other people and you are normally infectious until all your symptoms have gone. Coronavirus (COVID-19) may survive on surfaces if someone who has it coughs or sneezes onto it.
To date, there are no specific vaccines or medicines for COVID-19. Treatments are under investigation and will be tested through clinical trials.
