COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus. Symptoms of coronavirus are a cough, a high temperature and shortness of breath.

Simple measures like washing your hands often and before you eat with soap and water can help stop viruses like coronavirus from spreading so quickly. There’s no real treatment for coronavirus .Treatment offers to relieve the symptoms until you recover. We do not know how the diseases spread from people to people , but similar viruses are spread in coughs, or through the air.

There has been 139,005 cases, 5,111 deaths and 70,000 recoveries world wide. This disease has shut down the NBA entire season. Also the NCAA March Madness, MLB Spring Training, and so much more like your local sports team. Many high schools have shut down all sports and soon are shutting down just like colleges and force the kids to take online classes.

The Coronavirus seems to be affecting everyone and it must be contained or we could be looking at a lot of people dying.
