Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been in the headlines- an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered virus. The pandemic has already stressed citizens all over the world with globally 381,600+ cases and 16,500+ deaths, currently, 52 confirmed cases, 2 deaths in Ghana. According to health care professionals, the virus causes respiratory illness like flu with symptoms such as cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing.
Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed to meet again.
