Learn about the COVID-19 virus
COVID-19, also known as “coronavirus disease 19,” is an infectious viral respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV2 virus. “CO” in its name refers to the word corona, “VI” refers to the word virus, “D” refers to the word disease, while the number “19” refers to 2019, the year the virus appeared. The coronavirus epidemic officially broke out in December 2019 and was declared a pandemic by the WHO on 11 March 2020. Just like the flu, the coronavirus spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets but has a higher mortality rate of 3.4%.
Widely accepted, effective drugs, that are particularly suitable to treat the disease, are not yet available. Currently, the only safe and effective protective option is vaccines, which are available for all citizens.
