Cleaning refers to the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting refers to using chemicals, for example, EPA-registered disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

While the virus is termed coronavirus, the sickness that results after the infection has been termed COVID-19. COVID-19 has now been declared a pandemic, which is a global outbreak of a disease.
Illness from COVID-19 is wide-ranging, from mild to severe symptoms and death. According to the CDC, the symptom may appear two days to two weeks after exposure:
Fever, Cough, Shortness of breath
