Thank you for the question.
The new Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) if it infects a person can cause a disease with a broad spectrum of symptoms, can be without symptoms at all, can be mild symptoms (cough, fever, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, sore aches), can also be symptoms severe (shortness, chills, diarrhea, vomiting, loss of appetite, loss of consciousness), even death. Variations in these symptoms can occur due to differences in endurance, which is influenced by age, race, sex, activities undertaken, nutritional intake, genetics, as well as a history of certain illnesses suffered.
Like most other viruses, the Corona virus that causes COVID-19 has so far no definitive treatment. However, this virus can be suppressed replication in the body with good endurance. So far, the treatment has been more focused on reducing the clinical symptoms that arise, increasing the patient's immunity and stamina, as well as preventing the worsening of patients from becoming dangerous complications. As for several types of antiviral drugs available today, are believed to help inhibit the development of the virus, but not always able to cure it. Therefore, preventive measures, such as by increasing personal hygiene and maintaining social distance, and strengthening endurance are the main steps to prevent and overcome this virus infection.
Hope this helps ...
