Coronavirus Disease COVID-19

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that are common among animals. The viruses can make people sick, usually with a mild to moderate upper respiratory tract illness, similar to a common cold. A new coronavirus was identified in China associated with an outbreak of pneumonia. This virus is the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), which has resulted in a number of deaths.

The Department of Health has world-class surveillance systems in place to rapidly identify and detect any cases in the country. This includes the screening and monitoring of anyone with a relevant travel history and close contacts with the affected areas.
