Coronaviruses are a family of viruses from illness like the common cold, SARS and MERS. The COVID-19 virus was declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, In March 2020, by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Updated S/S; Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19.
