An outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus was first detected in China and has now been detected in other countries, including the U.S. The disease has been named COVID-19. Symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath.
The situation with COVID-19 continues to rapidly evolve with more cases being identified in the U.S. and evidence of person-to-person spread. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains this virus is not currently spreading widely in the U.S., it also cautions the potential health threat posed by COVID-19 is high in the U.S. and globally.
According to the CDC, the virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). It is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
