It is very important to understand COVID-19 spread or transmission in order to protect yourselves and others. The disease can spread from one person to another through small droplets released from nose or mouth when a person infected with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or exhales.

FAQs

COVID-19 is an infectious disease, which is caused by a recently discovered corona virus strain. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. COVID-19 causes respiratory illness that can spread from person to person and its notorious for mutating quickly and acquiring new characteristics.

Please note that most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. However, people with weaker immune system (immunocompromised) are more likely to develop serious illness. As per WHO, the incubation period for COVID-19 range from 1-14 days, most commonly around five days. So for the most common symptoms of COVID-19 are: Fever, Dry Cough, Sore Throat, Tiredness, Breathlessness. Though, some patients may also experience body aches, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. Chest X-rays show invasive pneumonic infiltrates in both lungs. However, all these symptoms are also common for other respiratory infections. So, in case of COVID-19, travel history to affected geographical area is a most important criteria in diagnosis. Some infected people can be asymptomatic (don’t feel sick). Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without requiring special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops breathlessness (difficulty in breathing).

It is very important to understand COVID-19 transmission in order to protect yourself and others. The disease can spread from one person to another person through small droplets released from nose or mouth when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surface around that infected person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these contaminated objects or surfaces, then touching their face (eyes, nose or mouth). People can also catch COVID-19 if they inhale the droplets exhaled from a person with COVID-19.

The best way to prevent and stop the transmission is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads.

  • Wash your hand regularly with soap and water, or clean them with alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Maintain at least 1 meter distance between you and people coughing or sneezing
