The Facts

What is COVID-19?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause respiratory infections. These can range from the common cold to more serious diseases.

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new form of coronavirus. It was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan City in China.

Symptoms

Symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild illness to pneumonia. Some people will recover easily, and others may get very sick very quickly.

People with coronavirus may experience:

  • fever

  • coughing, a sore throat and fatigue

  • shortness of breath

​​

How it spreads

The virus can spread from person to person through:

  • close contact with an infectious person (including in the 24 hours before they had symptoms)

  • contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze

  • touching objects or surfaces (like doorknobs or tables) that have droplets from an infected person, and then touching your mouth or face

 

Who is most at risk?

  • In Australia, the people most at risk of getting the virus are:

  • Travellers who have recently been overseas

  • Those who have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19

  • People in correctional and detention facilities

  • People in group residential settings

  • People who are, or are more likely to be, at higher risk of serious illness if they get the virus are:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 50 years and older with one or more chronic medical conditions

  • People 65 years and older with chronic medical conditions

  • People 70 years and older

  • People with compromised immune systems

  • At this stage the risk to children and babies, and the role children play in the transmission of COVID-19, is not clear. However, there has so far been a low rate of confirmed COVID-19 cases among children, relative to the broader population.
