CORONA VIRUS: Protecting Yourself And Your Family.


What is corona virus?

The whole of the family of corona viruses are named corona viruses because the name corona means a crown, so this refers to the way the virus looks under the microscope like there’s a crown on top of the virus. Some of them,{about four of five of them}cause common diseases among humans, from a common cold to mild or moderate respiratory illnesses. Other kinds of corona viruses’ affect animals and on rare occasions, corona viruses jump from animal species to the human population. The COVID-19 is a kind of corona virus that has not been seen among humans before.

What are the symptoms of a corona virus?

COVID-19 symptoms range from mild to severe. It takes 2-14 days after exposure for symptoms to develop. Symptoms may include:

  • fever (The Centers for Disease Control considers a person to have a fever when he or she has a measured temperature of at least 100.4 °F [38 °C])
  • cough
  • shortness of breath

Those with weakened immune systems may develop more serious symptoms, like pneumonia or bronchitis. You may never develop symptoms after being exposed to COVID-19. So far, most confirmed cases are in adults, but some children have been infected. There is no evidence that children are at greater risk for getting the virus.

The virus that causes corona disease is thought to spread mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person sneezes or coughs. These droplets can spread to the nose, hands, and mouth, and can possibly be inhaled by the lungs.  Since the emergence of the corona disease (COVID-19) which was spreads through the infamous corona virus, medical health practitioners, the world over, has been looking for possible cures in fighting this disease that’s been claiming so many lives of so many, but all search has proved abortive.

If the person coughing or sneezing is affected with COVID-19, you may breathe it in if you are close to the person and also get infected.
