Main Article Content

Dr KK Aggarwal


There is a pandemic of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). It is an infectious disease caused by the new coronavirus, a highly
contagious virus. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness and dry cough. Most people (about 80%)
usually recover from the infection. COVID-19 is a new disease and new data is coming out every day. The general practitioner
(GP) is not actively involved in management of active cases. But, as the first point of contact, a GP has an important role in
preventing its spread by prompt detection and timely referral of suspected cases. Hence, it is important for the GP to be aware
of the key aspects of the disease.
