Coronavirus | how do you recognize the symptoms of corona and its infection?
There has been a lot of talks recently about the issue of the coronavirus and its spread in Saudi Arabia and the fear of its expansion in neighboring Arab countries, what is a coronavirus and what are its symptoms? Find out all these answers here.
The MERS-CoV, which causes MERS-Co-infection, spread significantly in 2012 in Saudi Arabia, moving from there to a number of other countries such as the United States, where various corona symptoms have been observed in people with a fever to death! So what is this virus and its symptoms? And how did it spread so quickly between people?
What is coronavirus?
MERS-CoV is a type of virus that causes infection in the nose, sinuses and upper throat, causing Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), to show corona symptoms in the form of cold symptoms.
Coronavirus is usually not considered dangerous to health depending on its type, but of course there is a part that can cause serious health problems such as the cause of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), as evidenced by the fact that there have been hundreds of deaths since it first appeared in 2012 in Saudi Arabia, according to According to the World Health Organization (WHO).
This particular virus came from an animal source found in the Arabian Peninsula, and there are beliefs and suspicions that this animal is camel or camel, but more studies and research is needed to reveal more information in this area.
What are the symptoms of corona?
Corona symptoms and HIV infection vary from moderate to severe or even very mild and without symptoms, so the symptoms are:
- High temperature
- Difficulty breathing
- Gonorrhea in the nose
- Sore throat
- The government’s support
- Nausea and vomiting
- Liver failure
Corona symptoms sometimes worsen to the risk of death, with CDC statistics revealing that 3-4 in 10 people die from mers-coronavirus.
The transmission of the disease to the lower respiratory tract to the lungs can cause pneumonia, especially in the elderly, people with heart disease and those with weakened immune systems, to threaten their lives.
It should be noted that the incubation period of the virus ,”the period between human exposure to the virus and the onset of symptoms of infection”, is approximately 5 or 6 days, but it is occupied according to the person and his health status also to be between two and 14 days.
Protect yourself from corona symptoms and infection
The MERS-CoV virus is easily transmitted between the infected person and the patient through respiratory secretions such as coughing or sneezing, but so far researchers have not been able to determine the exact ways of spreading the virus among people.
Due to the ease of spreading the virus, and the fact that there is no vaccine yet, everyone is advised to follow the following procedures that help reduce the chances of contracting the virus:
- Wash hands constantly and regularly
- Avoid direct contact with people with any disease
- Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth without hand washing
- Disinfect surfaces that are quickly contaminated
- Avoid dealing directly with animals, especially camels
- Stay away from sick beauty and report it to the authorities.
In the event of the appearance of symptoms of the disease in the human being, he should seek medical assistance immediately, in order to perform the necessary medical intervention in the absence of any cure or treatment of the disease yet, but usually the symptoms of simple and similar symptoms of cold are usually treated through:
- He took enough rest.
- Take a large amount of fluids, especially in case of diarrhea, which increases the risk of dehydration
- Take over-the-counter medications that treat sore throats and high fever, but of course after consulting a doctor to make sure that the drug is appropriate to the medical and health condition of the patient.
In conclusion, we emphasize that there is a lack of information about the virus so far, and researchers are still working hard to detect all aspects of the virus, and until then the best prevention methods remain in dealing with the virus.
