When a person has Coronavirus disease the most common symptoms of the Coronavirus disease are symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties.

The Coronavirus disease is worse than the flu virus although you may have some symptoms of the flu but if you have shortness of breath or breathing difficulties then you need to get tested for the Coronavirus disease.

The Coronavirus disease is pretty serious and much more serious than the flu and can be deadly as many people have died from it.

In more severe cases of Coronavirus disease the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, and even death

The people that are most at risk for the coronavirus disease are the elderly as in those 60 years of age and above or those younger people such as infants, toddlers and those under 10 years old.

People with weakened immune systems or people with heart disease, cancer and other health issues are the most at risk for the coronavirus disease.

Your pets can also get the coronavirus disease.

If you have the coronavirus disease and then you're around your pet or pets then they too can likely get the coronavirus disease from you or whoever has it.

If the pet has coronavirus disease it's also possible for the human to get coronavirus disease from the pet.

So during this time if you need to be around your pet it's best to wear a mask to help keep out any viruses until the coronavirus disease goes away.

Hopefully by August or at least by the end of the year the coronavirus disease will go away and we'll have a vaccine to cure and prevent the coronavirus disease.

But until then try to keep your distance from your pet and during nice weather try to keep the pet outside as much as possible.

Here are some below tips to stay safe around your pet during the Coronavirus disease.

  • Maintain separation and avoid direct contact with pets and other animals, including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food.
  • Try to make alternative arrangements for someone to look after pets in case you become ill.
  • If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with pets and wear a face mask.
