How does Coronavirus spread?
This virus appears to spread easily and it is thought this is mainly from person-to-person, through people who are in close contact with one another or through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person talks, coughs or sneezes. It can also be contracted from surface contact. It is most likely that people contract the virus and can spread this easily for some time, before they show symptoms. The patients identified as being at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 are;-
