According to the World Health Organization, the coronavirus is a contagious respiratory illness that originated in Wuhan, China, and could prove fatal to susceptible populations. Those over the age of 40 or with weakened immune systems are most vulnerable to serious illness from the virus. Common symptoms of the coronavirus are fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, and it is most commonly transmitted through coughing and sneezing.
