What are the sign & symptoms of coronavirus:
Coronavirus is a respiratory disease that seems to start with a fever, dry cough, mild chills, fatigue and after a week,
it is followed by shortness of breath and a few patients require hospital treatment if it gets worse.
These symptoms don’t necessarily mean you’ve got the illness.
They’re almost like those for far more common viruses, like colds and flu.
In more severe cases, coronavirus can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome,
which may cause multiple organ failure and even death also.
People with pre-existing medical history (like asthma, diabetes, heart disease), are more likely to become severely ill if they get infected.
The incubation period – the period between the infection and showing any symptoms – lasts up to 14 days, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) says.
But some researchers say that it may be up to 24 days also.
How can you Protect others from Getting sick :

3. Clean your hand with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or wash your hand nicely with soap after coughing or sneezing or when you are taking care of a sick person.
4. Avoid close contact when you are experiencing cough & fever & try to stay six feet away. If that’s not possible, even a little distancing is helpful according to some experts, as the virus seems to spread through droplets in the air from a cough or sneeze.
