Here are a few tips to help you find what you are looking for:
COVID-19 is an infection caused by a virus called "coronavirus" that primarily affects the respiratory tract (nose, throat and lungs).
The most common symptoms are:
Symptoms may be absent, mild (similar to a cold) or more severe (such as those associated with pneumonia and pulmonary insufficiency).
Since the symptoms are very similar to those seen in other common respiratory infections, such as influenza (flu), bronchitis and pneumonia, it is recommended that anyone with symptoms of a respiratory infection undertake the steps to obtain a medical diagnosis. In the event of COVID-19, it will be recommended that they voluntarily self-isolate for 14 days. Self-isolation protects the people around you by preventing the infection from spreading.
If you have a fever, cough or breathing difficulties or any other symptom that might be indicative of COVID-19, self-isolation at home is recommended until you receive clear instructions. Contact the COVID-19 information hotline in your province to be assessed by a nurse who can refer you to a designated COVID-19 clinic if needed.
Go to the emergency room only if you have breathing difficulties and if your condition allows it, first contact the COVID-19 information hotline in your province. They will tell you how to get there and what precautions to take (wearing a mask, using personal transportation or an ambulance, etc.). Additionally, the hospital will be notified of your arrival.
Usually, COVID-19 infects the nose, throat and lungs. It is most commonly spread by:
