Scientists and researchers around the world have summed up efforts to understand the new Coronavirus Disease and how it affects the human body.
The disease is said to have been transmitted via an animal source that is not yet identified. Severally health care organizations and institutions are currently working on the Coronavirus vaccines, and we hope to get one soon.
In the meantime, many coronavirus cases are being successfully treated. The treatments are developed and tested worldwide via the John Hopkins Institute template.
The coronavirus disease bursts into human body cells via an Act2 receptor. The virus hijacks healthy human cells, takes charge of it, and finally destroys some of the healthy human body cells.
Coronavirus starts with droplets from an infected person cough, sneeze, or breathe. The disease is said to be in the air (though for a few seconds) or on a surface that an infected person had touched before you touched too.
Within 2—14 days of catching the disease, the human immune system quickly reacts to the early symptoms of the coronavirus disease. The virus paves way down to your respiratory tract, which is the body system airway – it includes; the mouth, nose, lungs, and throat.
The lower airways have more Act2 receptors than the rest of your respiratory tract. As with other illnesses, including SARS and MERS, Coronavirus causes respiratory disease, so the lungs are usually affected.
The Coronavirus Disease Mild and Critical Cases
The coronavirus disease has caused illness to more than four million people worldwide, with more than 350,000 death cases recorded. In severe coronavirus cases, the virus can have a devastating effect on the human body system, not just the lungs.
The severity of the coronavirus disease varies from mild to no symptoms, to severe or sometimes fatal illness. Reports on more than fifteen thousand cases in China, about 70% were mild coronavirus cases while the rest were severe or critical cases.
Some people may only have minor respiratory symptoms while, others may develop non-life threatening pneumonia. However, there’s also a set of people who develops severe or critical lung damages.
Coronavirus Safety Precautions
As much as possible, you can still keep yourself and your family safe from the deadly coronavirus pandemic. You should always stay in our home and very far away from infected persons.
Make sure always to wear a face mask and use sanitizers after washing your hands and when you’re about stepping out from your house.
If you have pets like dogs, cats, snakes, in your house, avoid close contact with the pets. If you must care for the pets, then always remember to wear face masks and wash your hands frequently before and after caring for the pets.
Remember, there’s no vaccine yet for the treatment of the coronavirus disease, so do everything possible always to stay safe.
