More information

Coronavirus can affect people of all ages. However, older people or those with chronic illnesses appear to be more vulnerable to having the serious illness when infected.

The vaccines available on the market against pneumonia do not prevent coronavirus. The virus in question needs a new vaccine, which is still under development.

The analyzes made show that the coronavirus does not survive long on objects, such as envelopes or packages.
