SYMPTOMS AND SPREAD OF COVID-19

Symptoms of COVID-19 include: 

  • Fever;

  • Cough; and

  • Shortness of breath.

Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as many as 14 days following exposure.  Most people recover from COVID-19 without needing special treatment.

The elderly and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems and diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

COVID-19 can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, including when an individual coughs or sneezes.  These droplets may land on objects and surfaces.  Other people may contract COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
