In the last two weeks, the number of cases of CoronaVirus outside of China has increased 13 times. COVID-19 can be classified as an epidemic. Coronavirus or COVID-19, the disease was already overwhelming China, South Korea, Iran, and Italy. And this has been a warning to other countries where it was now spreading rapidly. In the coming days and weeks, we expect to see the number of cases, deaths, and affected countries increase dramatically. COVID-19 broadcasting was not something that could be stopped. But we can still slow down. We must just take action now.
Someone with COVID-19 often has fever, fatigue, and cough. Ants, pains, and other mild symptoms are also possible, but they are most common. But the severity of those symptoms varies and for some people who get the virus, you will never show any symptoms. In 80% of cases, people only get mild infections. But in 20% of cases, the disease can be very noticeable. It can develop into severe pneumonia when people need hospitalization, filing. Overall it seems like about 1 to 2% of known cases lead to death, but that number is much lower in young people and much higher in older people. People with uncontrolled, under-diagnosed, and chronic diseases, have a difficult time.
The virus appears to be more contagious, more contagious than the flu. All you need to do is broadcast a COVID-19 cough or sneeze on someone. Touch the area, where the virus is still and keep your hand in your mouth or eyes. After being infected, it can take an average of 5 – 6 days before you feel ill and your symptoms start to appear. But you can still spread it to other people during that time, even if you feel well.
Just as people realize they are sick, it seems they are at great risk of passing it on to others. That is how that virus is so effective in spreading the world so quickly. And why is the WHO now calling COVID-19 a pandemic? But what they say next is important. We won’t say this much. All countries are still changing the ways of the epidemic. And that depends on something each of us needs to do as individuals. Therefore, infections become really dangerous, whenever you get sick right away and the health system gets frustrated.
