COVID-19 spreads by respiratory droplets released when an infected person sneezes or coughs. People can get infected if they inhale these droplets or touch their face after touching a virus-contaminated surface.
The incubation period of the virus is 1-14 days but commonly around 5 days. The incubation period is the time it takes for a person to get ill after being infected by the virus.
