About Covid-19

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus affected world wide cases.

What Is Covid-19?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.  Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. WHO will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical findings become available.

How Contagious is Covid-19

There are many steps to avoid covid-19 corona virus. For this you have to stay home. There is evidence that the novel coronavirus can be spread before an individual develops symptoms.

Air Transmission

Air Transmission

Droplets that from infected person coughs or sneezes.

Human Contact

Human Contact

Person to person spread as close contact with infected.

Contaminated Objects

Contaminated Objects

Touching or contact with infected surfaces or objects.

SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19

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. Also the symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

Fever

A normal body temperature is 37C, anything above this is technically considered a fever.

Headache

This includes the blood vessels, muscles, and nerves of the head and neck. 

Cough

Almost 60% of COVID-19 positive cases report dry cough as a prominent symptom

Runny Nose

According to the World Health Organisation, a runny nose is in fact a symptom of coronavirus, albeit a mild one.

Sore Throat

While the CDC doesn’t provide that information, research says a sore throat isn’t very common in COVID-19 patients.

Diarrhea

Some patients with COVID-19 experience gastrointestinal symptoms, particularly diarrhea, as the first sign of illness

Fatigue

Fatigue is a term used to describe an overall feeling of tiredness or lack of energy. It isn't the same as simply feeling drowsy or sleepy

Shortness Of Breath

is often described as an intense tightening in the chest, air hunger, difficulty breathing,

Prevention & Advice

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face. 

Avoid Contact

Avoid touching other people. Skin to skin contact can pass SARS-CoV-2 from one person to another.

Wear A Face Mask

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendsTrusted Source that almost everyone wear a cloth face mask in public settings where social distancing may be difficult, such as grocery stores.

Avoid Touching Face

Avoid touching any part of your face or head including your mouth, nose, and eyes. Also avoid biting your fingernails. This can give SARS-CoV-2 a chance to go from your hands into your body.

Wash Your Hand

Wash your hand with warm water and soap and rub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Work the lather to your wrists, between your fingers, and under your fingernails.

Avoid Travelling

Social distancing means staying home and working remotely when possible. If you must go out for necessities, keep a distance of 6 feet from other people. 

Cook Food Thoroughly

Choose foods that are thoroughly cooked and can be reheated. High heat (at least 132°F/56°C, according to one recent, not-yet-peer-reviewed lab study) helps to kill coronaviruses.

Additionally, you can pass on the virus even if you never get symptoms at all.
