A person may test positive for a coronavirus and not have the type of virus associated with the outbreak.

The outbreak is a specific type of coronavirus called Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19. The abbreviation comes from – CO stands for corona, VI for virus, D for disease.

COVID-19 is spread by close person-to-person contact from droplets of a cough or sneeze, which can get into your mouth, nose or lungs.
