Coronal virus has spread to more than 150 countries and claimed more than 8,000 lives.
The rise in the number of daily confirmed cases internationally has led the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare its spread a global pandemic.
This is when an infectious disease is passing easily from person to person in many parts of the world at the same time.
So, what is the disease and how does it spread?
How do I protect myself?
The best thing is regular and thorough hand washing, preferably with soap and water.
Coronavirus spreads when an infected person coughs small droplets - packed with the virus - into the air.
These can be breathed in, or cause an infection if you touch a surface they have landed on, then your eyes, nose or mouth.
So, coughing and sneezing into tissues, not touching your face with unwashed hands, and avoiding close contact with infected people are important for limiting the spread.
