CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19) FAQs
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel (new) coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.
Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Symptoms usually appear 2-14 days after exposure.
No. The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. However, children with confirmed COVID-19 have generally presented with mild symptoms. Reported symptoms in children include cold-like symptoms, such as fever, runny nose, and cough.
The symptoms related to influenza (The Flu) and COVID-19 (Coronavirus) are very similar and can be indistinguishable. Symptoms of both include fever, cough, body aches, and fatigue.
Influenza typically has a mortality rate of 0.1 percent in the United States. The mortality rate of COVID-19 is significantly higher, especially in older patients and those with preexisting conditions, like diabetes, respiratory issues, and weakened immune systems.
Vaccines and antiviral treatments exist for influenza, but no vaccines or anti-viral treatments currently exist for coronavirus.
