The COVID-19 pandemic is the biggest public health challenge the world has faced in recent times.
This is one of the hundreds of viruses that can cause a series of illnesses ranging from the common fever, respiratory problems to sometimes stomach and intestine problems. The novel coronavirus that appeared in 2019 is one of seven members of this family known to attack humans, and the third in the past three decades to transfer from animals to humans. Since emerging in China in December, this new COVID-19 has resulted in a global health emergency.
This virus has spread all over the world in a very short time because the biggest strength of this virus is that it can transfer quickly from one person to another. The total number of people affected from all over the world has reached 4.69 million and is expected to increase more. About 1.72 million of the people are recovered from this virus. A huge number of lives are lost making up a figure of 313k deaths.
It depends on the virus. 5-6 days are taken on average for the symptoms to show up, however it may take up to 14 days.
Consult to a doctor right away if you have severe condition symptoms. Don’t forget to call your doctor before your visit.
According to the most recent research, this virus usually spread from people to people through respiratory droplets ( This is a term used for the wet stuff that moves through the air) and contact routes. When an affected person sneezes, exhales, or coughs the droplets are released and are too heavy that they land down on the surfaces or floors. When an unaffected person touches the contaminated surface, and then his eyes, nose, or mouth the virus is transferred.
Breathing near someone who has COVID-19 also provides a route to the virus so avoid going near the affected ones without proper safety!
