42. Covid-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronavirus_disease_2019
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Central China, and has since spread globally, resulting in the 201920 coronavirus pandemic.

It's a new (novel) coronavirus.

If you test positive for the virus you have Covid-19, whether or not you show symptoms.

IOW, there's no classification of degree, like with HIV, where one can test positive but not yet have 'full blown' AIDS.
