COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus


How does COVID-19 spread?

People can acquire COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.

Other people can then acquire COVID-19 by touching objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also acquire COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is assessing ongoing research on the ways COVID-19 is spread. For the latest information, see emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019.
