Protect yourself against COVID-19
While this corona virus is new, it is not the only corona virus. Corona viruses were first identified in the 1960s, commonly infect people, and can present symptoms similar to those of the cold and flu. 
 
What are the symptoms?
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are:
  • Fever
  • Tiredness
  • Dry cough
 
Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t show symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.

Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 become seriously ill and develop difficulty breathing. Older people and those with underlying medical problems such as:
 
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart problems
  • Lung disease
  • Diabetes
 Are more likely to develop serious illness. People with a fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
 
If you think you have COVID-19 please dial 0800 002 9999. For more information visit the websites of the World Health Organization www.who.int and the National Institute For Communicable Diseases www.nicd.ac.za
