Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a highly contagious infectious disease caused by a newly discovered strain of coronavirus. Initial cases started from Wuhan, China, in early 2020 and spread to the entire world within a couple of months. The disease is spread through respiratory droplets expelled into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Most people infected with the novel coronavirus only require mild treatment and can recover fully within days. However, people with chronic respiratory issues and poor immune systems can develop serious symptoms such as:
People who are above 50 years of age or have underlying medical conditions are more susceptible to the COVID-19 virus and can develop these symptoms that require immediate medical attention. Without proper care and treatment, the virus can also prove to be fatal to some people.
Unfortunately, there is no cure present at the moment, and the vaccines discovered recently have not proven to be 1005 effective. The best way to ensure your health and safety is through routine COVID-19 testing and proper COVID-19 management and prevention.
