Coronavirus is a large group of viruses that cause diseases ranging from the common cold to more serious diseases, such as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).
Symptoms of Corona disease
- shortness or difficulty breathing.
In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia and acute respiratory syndrome to death.
The causes of the spread of the Corona virus
Coronavirus is known as an animal source, and this means that it first developed in animals and then transmitted to humans, and the Coronavirus has not been definitively linked to a specific animal, but researchers believe that the transmission of this virus occurred in the open food market in Wuhan, China.
In order for the virus to be transmitted from the infected animal to the human, the person must have had close contact with an animal that carries the infection.
But the bad thing is that once the Corona virus develops and reaches people, the virus can spread from person to person through respiratory droplets (droplets), which is the technical name for wet substances that move in the air when coughing or sneezing.
The spray issued by a person with Coronavirus contains a viral substance, and it can be inhaled by another healthy person through his respiratory system and into the windpipe and lungs, leading to infection from person to person.
Coronavirus incubation period
“Incubation period” means the period between catching the virus and the onset of symptoms of the disease.
Most estimates of the incubation period for COVID-19 range from 1 to 14 days, and the most common is around five days.
Recovery from the Coronavirus depends on many factors, some of which relate to the infected person himself, such as his age group, or accompany it with other chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and others, in addition to the strength of the person’s immunity, compliance with laws and advice, and external factors as well, such as the quality of health care, And government measures to impose social distancing and cancel gatherings and other measures.
Epidemiologists say: The rates of recovery from the Coronavirus will not be clear until the end of the outbreak period, as the complete data set will only be viewed then, but it is worth noting that most people who contract the new Coronavirus / Covid 19 often recover if they adhere to the system Quarantine in their homes, while some people only need hospital treatment and intensive care.
