“Doctors, nurses, radiologists, everybody,” Giacomo Gianniotti said. “If you are in a hospital working right now, we love you, thank you, we thank you so, so much for your work and for your sacrifice. It is noted, known and appreciated, and we have nothing but love for you guys.”

“Today is National Doctors’ Day, and I just wanted to thank all the doctors at the front line of this global pandemic that is COVID-19,” Chandra Wilson said. “You are true heroes, and we’re all so thankful for your hard work every single day.”

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:

Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are legally obligated to self-isolate for 14 days, beginning March 26, in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others. Some provinces and territories have also implemented additional recommendations or enforcement measures to ensure those returning to the area self-isolate.

Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
