COVID-19 SymptomsCoronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. COVID-19, the source of the current coronavirus pandemic, only recently made the jump from animals to humans. As a result, few people have developed resistance or immunity. This is what makes the virus so easy to catch. For most, the symptoms are mild and similar to the flu–fever, cough, shortness of breath. Those over 60 and those with compromised immune or respiratory symptoms are particularly at risk of life-threatening conditions. This is why we are taking such extraordinary measures to slow the spread of this disease.
