Coronavirus Frequently Asked Questions

With a new illness like coronavirus spreading, it’s natural to have questions. Here are some of the common ones, with answers to help you stay informed and make confident decisions about your health.

What is coronavirus?

Coronavirus is technically a category of viruses that cause respiratory illnesses, including the common cold. Right now, the term “coronavirus” is often being used to refer to a new strain of coronavirus and the illness it causes. The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated this latest illness COVID-19.

What are coronavirus symptoms?

Common COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Additional respiratory symptoms could occur, and symptoms may vary in severity. Symptoms typically show up two to 14 days after exposure to the virus.

What should I do if I think I have coronavirus?

If you have symptoms that are consistent with coronavirus, experts recommend calling your doctor or healthcare provider before visiting their office. After discussing your symptoms and any exposure you may have had to the virus—via travel or coming into contact with known carriers—they should be able to make a recommendation about whether you should be tested for COVID-19. This planning measure can help limit others’ exposure to you in the event you do have the disease.
