The information below is based on guidance from the CDC and our team of medical professionals. This information is rapidly evolving, and it’s important to understand that there are still many unknowns about COVID-19 and how the disease spreads. Current knowledge and guidance is based in large part on what is known about similar viruses in the coronavirus family.
There are several things you can do:
If COVID-19 is spreading in your community, put distance between yourself and other people. Avoid large crowds and contact with other people (like a handshake or hug). This is called social distancing.
If you feel any of the symptoms associated with Coronavirus, you should:
Watch out for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. These signs include difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion or sleepiness, or bluish lips or face. If you develop these, get medical attention immediately.
In short, it spreads like the flu, primarily through close contact with an infected person, especially through airborne droplets from an inadequately covered cough or sneeze. While early reports of COVID-19 were linked to animal markets in Wuhan, China, human-to-human transmission has since been confirmed as the primary method of infection.
No. While a vaccine is in development and treatments are being tested, no known medications are effective in preventing or treating COVID-19. Antibiotics do not treat COVID-19, as antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections, not viruses.
