COVID-19 is a lung virus that’s part of a family of coronaviruses that vary in severity, including everything from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) to the common cold.

Symptoms associated with COVID-19 include a runny nose, headache, cough and fever that are similar to flu symptoms, according to a previous Global News report. It’s flu season in Canada, meaning viruses impacting the population are common.

The number of people infected with coronavirus topped 110,000 across the world as of Monday and over 3,800 have died as the outbreak reached more countries and caused more economic damage.
