  4. Preventative Measures
Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is a respiratory disease that was first detected in China. It has now been detected in almost 70 countries, including the United States. Worldwide illnesses have ranged from mild to severe, including illness resulting in death. Older people and people with underlying health conditions seem to be at greater risk of serious illness. Those conditions include heart disease, lung disease, and cancer. There are no medications specifically approved for COVID-19. People  with coronavirus should be treated with supportive care to help relieve symptoms. Some severe cases require hospitalization, particularly in the elderly or those who have underlying medical conditions.
