About Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus spreads very quickly and causes an unpleasant respiratory illness that can be dangerous for some people. Not every case has symptoms and some people can spread COVID-19 to others without realising it.

COVID-19 and coronavirus mean the same thing, COVID-19 is a shortening of “coronavirus disease 2019”, the test kit CityDoc provide is referred to as the COVID-19 Home Testing Kit.

How do you catch COVID-19?

The COVID-19 virus is transmitted by respiratory droplets. If an infected person sneezes or coughs they spray out virus-loaded droplets. Other people can breathe in the droplets and may become infected too. It is possible to get infected by COVID-19 if you touch a contaminated surface and transfer the viruses to your face.

What symptoms do you get with COVID-19?

You can expect the following symptoms if you have a COVID-19 infection:

  • cough
  • fatigue
  • fever
  • shortness of breath

Some people infected with COVID-19 have no symptoms at all. They can still infect other people though.

Do I need a COVID-19 test?

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, or have returned from a country with a high incidence of COVID-19 consider testing yourself for this viral infection.
