What is Coronavirus (COVID-19) and How Can I Prevent It?

Coronavirus is a type of virus that causes respiratory illness — an infection of the airways and lungs. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus. It’s part of the same family of coronaviruses that includes the common cold.

The most common early symptoms appear between 2 and 14 days after being infected. Symptoms can be mild to severe. They include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Right now, medical experts think that COVID-19 spreads from person-to-person through a cough, sneeze or kiss. However, since COVID-19 is a new disease, scientists around the globe are racing to learn more about it.

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19. Check the CDC website for up-to-date information. If you’re traveling, you’ll want to visit the CDC travel page for their most current travel guidelines. CDC information for household members and caregivers can be found at this CDC webpage.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved one medicine, remdesivir (Veklury), to treat COVID-19 in adults and in hospitalized children who are at least 12 years old.

The FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for three antibody therapies designed to treat COVID-19. They are bamlanivimab, which is made by Eli Lilly, and casirivimab and imdevimab, which are made by Regeneron and used together. An EUA is not a full approval by the FDA.

Visit the CDC website to learn more about medicines and treatment guidelines for COVID-19. Please discuss additional questions about COVID-19 treatments and medicines with your doctor.
