Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
Some coronaviruses can cause illness similar to the common cold and others can cause more serious diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).
This novel coronavirus is still new and as such we are still learning more about it.
Other symptoms people may experience include muscle or joint pain, and loss of appetite.
Everyone who gets COVID-19 will experience it a little differently.
People who have extreme symptoms or side effects from the virus may take weeks or months to recover fully, while people with a mild illness may feel completely better within a week or two.
Symptoms can vary depending on each case.
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, you should contact your local doctor or call 134 COVID (13 24 68).
People with suspected COVID-19 will be tested.
