Coronavirus can make humans and animals sick. Some can cause illnesses similar to the common cold and others cause more serious ill- nesses, including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)
Symptoms include (but are not limited to) fever, cough, diarrhoea and difficulty breathing. Difficulty breathing is a sign of possible pneumo- nia and requires immediate medical attention. It can take up to 14 days for symptoms to show after a person has been infected.
