WHAT IS THE CORONA VIRUS?
Information about the corona virus, which threatens life both in the world and in our country and has turned into a global epidemic, is available on the website of the Ministry of Health. So what is the corona virus? Here is the definition of the corona virus; Corona viruses are a large family of viruses found in both animals and humans. Some infect people and are known to cause more serious illnesses from the common cold, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
The corona virus disease, which is generally included in the risk group of the elderly, can be transmitted from person to person and manifests itself in different symptoms. Here, ‘what are the symptoms of corona virus? The answer to the question;
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but do not experience any symptoms and feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover without the need for special treatment. About 1 in 6 people who get the COVID-19 virus become seriously ill and have difficulty breathing.
Older people and those with underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes are more likely to develop serious illness. About 2% of the people who got the disease died. People who have fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
HOW DOES THE CORONA VIRUS COME?
‘How is the Corona virus transmitted?’ The question is one of the most investigated topics against the corona virus in our country. While the Ministry of Health and officials call on citizens to ‘stay at home’, they also underline that the disease is usually transmitted by acts such as breathing, coughing and touching. Here, the ways of transmission of the corona virus can be explained as follows.
The COVID-19 virus is transmitted from person to person through tiny droplets that are thrown into the air by a sick person during coughing, sneezing or breathing. Other people in the vicinity of the sick person can become infected by breathing airborne droplets, as well as droplets falling on surrounding objects and surfaces, and people can get COVID-19 by touching their eyes, nose or mouth with their dirty hands. Therefore, it is very important to keep more than 1 meter (3 feet) apart from someone who is sick and to wash their hands frequently.
The World Health Organization (WHO) evaluates ongoing research on the ways COVID-19 spreads and shares updated findings.
