COVID-19 is an infectious disease the World Health Organization has identified as a global pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 is a novel, single strand RNA virus that causes COVID-19.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, COVID-19 is mainly spread person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Other means of virus transmission are possible as well. Asymptomatic patients or patients who have not yet presented with symptoms may transmit the virus to others, and the virus may also be spread by contacting a contaminated surface.
