Everything You Should know about Corona Virus

Everything You Should know about Corona Virus


First case of corona virus was reported in 2019 that emerged in Wuhan, China. COVID- 19 causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and has taken the form of a pandemic. This RNA virus has created a panicking situation.

Most common observation is that the patients have dry cough, they feel intense pain in their bodies, have problem while breathing and fever. Other less common symptoms include, loss of ability to smell and taste, gastrointestinal issues and headache.

If one or more symptoms for corona virus are present or if the person has been exposed to a COVID patient, it is better to get tested. Labs take nose or throat swab samples and carry out PCR based tests to check for presence of virus.

As it is a contagious disease, people should:
1-Wear masks and wash hands after touching a surface.
2-Avoid contact and keep a distance of at least 5 feet.
3-Avoid meeting people who have COVID-19. In case of contact, people must stay in quarantine for at least 14 days.

At the moment, there is no vaccine in market for corona virus but clinical tests are being carried out by different companies. Plasma therapy is one effective way of introducing COVID-19 immunity in patients. In addition, antiviral drugs are also being used.

There are some perceptions about corona virus that do not have scientific basis such as,

1-COVID-19 is the deadliest disease
2-Hot weather kills COVID-19
3-Corona virus only infects old people
4-Antibiotics can be used as treatment

In reality, none of this is true. COVID-19 can cause deaths but the greater percentage of people recover. Neither hot nor cold weather can prevent corona virus infection. COVID-19 can infect people of all ages and antibiotics are not used against viruses.
