Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) 

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.  Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people. This occurred with MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV, and now with the virus that causes COVID-19.
