Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19

What is it?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.

How is it spread?

COVID-19 is spread mainly from person to person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within 6 feet)
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

The droplets can land in the mouths, noses, or eyes of people who are nearby or possibly inhaled into the lungs.

It is also possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

How many cases are there currently?

The number is ever-evolving. You can find daily updates for Georgia here.
