What is corona virus ?, What is COVID-19 ?, What are the symptoms of COVID-19 ?, How does COVID-19 spread ?, Can the virus that causes COVID-19 be transmitted through the air?, Can CoVID-19 be caught from a person who has no symptoms? The main way the disease spreads is through respiratory droplets expelled by someone who is coughing. The risk of catching COVID-19 from someone with no symptoms at all is very low. However, many people with COVID-19 experience only mild symptoms. This is particularly true at the early stages of the disease. It is therefore possible to catch COVID-19 from someone who has, for example, just a mild cough and does not feel ill.
