Coronavirus

To keep the community informed, we’ve lifted the paywall on all stories about COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. For most people, the virus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.
