About Coronavirus Crisis
COVID-19 is an illness caused by a novel coronavirus. The virus spreads similar to the flu, and symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and to practise social distancing. The disease was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2019. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a pandemic.
