About Coronavirus


Coronaviruses (CoV) are a family of viruses that can cause respiratory tract infections in humans, ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as pneumonia, leading to shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Human-to-human transmissions have been described with incubation times between 2-10 days. The UK Government are advising you to stay at home for 7 days if you have any of the symptoms, such as a high temperature and a new, persistent cough. The UK Government have issued a response to the virus, with information on the steps you can take to prevent infection.
