Novel Coronavirus (*COVID-19) was characterized as a pandemic on March 11, 2020, by the World Health Organization (WHO). It has spread to over 100 countries and the current symptoms include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. At this time, we know that the most at risk group of people are the elderly. As the disease is new and emerging, there is still a very unknown element as to how it spreads. Although it is primarily spread through respiratory droplets, it is speculated to be spread through touching a surface or object that has the virus on it. Infected individuals can lack symptoms for two weeks after infection, although the disease has been shown to have an asymptomatic period of up to twenty-seven days. During this time, they are still able to spread the disease. This is why it is important to disinfect and sterilize the environment as a measure to prevent both initial infection and further spread.
