The current outbreak of the new 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019 n-CoV) has taken hold of several major countries across the world. China, its origin country, South Korea, Italy and Iran are some of the heavily impacted regions
The panic actually spread in India with the case of 15 Italian tourists, as well as their Indian driver, getting infected. You can find the current number of reported cases on the Government of India website. To keep the spread in check, the government is taking preventive measures such as universal screening of travellers on airports. Several labs are expected to open for testing and researching on the n-CoV.
Amidst all this crisis, many healthcare experts have actually been releasing updates to keep the public informed as well as ready. Information on coronavirus is actually floating everywhere, and it is for the people to read as well as take precautionary measures to prevent themselves from actually getting the virus.
In this blog, we take a deep dive into everything you need to know about COVID-19, right from its symptoms, to how it gets transmitted, and what are some strict do�s and don�ts for prevention.
Are You Infected With Coronavirus?
2019 n-CoV is actually from the large family of coronaviruses that cause several illness ranging from the common cold to much more severe diseases like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) as well as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). And the worst thing about this new virus is that it has no conspicuous symptoms.
Mild health problems�such as coughing, sneezing, fever and difficulty in breathing are some of the symptoms of the infection. However in certain cases, there might be no symptoms at all. The infected may actually be a carrier of the virus, without really being infected themselves, infecting many others in the process. Alternatively, the infected may actually develop severe cases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome, pneumonia, kidney failure, even leading to death.
So if you are dealing with cough and cold in this weather, the only way to know whether you are coronavirus infected or not, is to consult with a healthcare professional. So far, there is no standard, or any sort of direct test for 2019 n-Cov. But, the virus can be detected by running a series of tests.
How Does the COVID-19 Get Transmitted?
The researchers are yet to uncover what the exact dynamics of the transmission of the virus really is. However, here are a few channels through which it happens
Through droplets created after coughing or sneezing of an infected person
Consumption of virus containing animal products
Contact with an infected animal
Through public places, especially during public transportations, meetings, gatherings, etc.
