Covid-19 is an illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type of coronavirus. There are simple steps you can take to protect you and your family/whānau.
These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have Covid-19. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.
If you have these symptoms and have been in close contact with someone confirmed with Covid-19, please call Healthline (for free) on 0800 358 5453 or your doctor immediately.
Covid-19, like the flu, can be spread from person to person. When a person who has Covid-19 coughs, sneezes or talks, they may spread droplets containing the virus a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces.
You may get infected by the virus if you touch those surfaces or objects and then touch your mouth, nose or eyes.
That’s why it’s really important to use good hygiene, regularly wash and thoroughly dry your hands, and use good cough etiquette.
