What is the Coronavirus?

Coronaviruses (CoV) are viruses that periodically arise in different areas of the world and cause Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI), that is, flu, which can be mild, moderate or severe.

According to the World Health Organization, the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) is classified as a public health emergency of international importance (ESPII). Cases have been identified on all continents and, on March 6, the first case was confirmed in Colombia.


Infection occurs when a sick person coughs or sneezes and expels virus particles that come into contact with other people.


Who can get sick from coronavirus?

It is known that anyone can be infected, regardless of their age, but relatively few cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in children so far. The disease is rarely fatal, and so far the fatalities have been elderly people who already suffered from a chronic disease such as diabetes, asthma or hypertension.


What are the symptoms?

The new Covid causes an Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI), that is, a flu, which can be mild, moderate or severe. It can cause fever, cough, runny nose (mucus) and general malaise. Some patients may have difficulty breathing.
