Coronavirus, or COVID-19, was first identified in China in December 2019. It can cause severe respiratory issues in vulnerable and older people.


The virus responsible is named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

Is there a vaccine?

As it stands, there is currently no vaccine. A global effort is underway to develop one currently, but it may take some time. This is a newly identified virus with no human immunity and no concrete way to prevent infection. Antibiotics are not effective as this is a viral infection.

Should I self isolate?

Self isolation is staying at home, avoiding work, school and any public space, and not traveling on public transport or in taxis.


According to Public Health England, everyone in a vulnerable group and those over 70 should self isolate for at least 12 weeks to protect themselves.


If you have symptoms, you should not leave your house to avoid the spread of COVID-19 for at least 7 days. If you live with someone that has symptoms, you should self isolate for 14 days at least.

What if I have returned from abroad?
