Frequently Asked Questions
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.
The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.
People may be sick with the virus for 1 to 14 days before developing symptoms. The most common symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.
More rarely, the disease can be serious and even fatal. Older people, and people with other medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease), may be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill.

You’re most fertile within a day or two either side of an egg being released from your ovaries (ovulation).
But you can get pregnant if you have sex at any point during the week before ovulation, as sperm can live inside a woman’s body for up to seven days.
If you’re hoping to get pregnant, you don’t need to specifically plan sex around this time though. It can be difficult to work out exactly when you ovulate and trying to have sex to a schedule can cause unnecessary stress and anxiety – and may mean you actually end up having less sex.
For the best chance of getting pregnant, have sex every two or three days throughout your cycle.
