COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new respiratory virus spreading person-to-person in many parts of the world. Health experts are concerned because little is known about this new virus. It can cause severe complications, including pneumonia, that require hospitalization. Factors that increase the risk for severe disease are advanced age and chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease.

There is no vaccine or specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19, although antiviral treatment is under study in China, and vaccine research has started in the U.S. and other countries. Southeastern Idaho Public Health is working closely with the Idaho Division of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor the situation.
