Difference Between HIV Virus And Corona Virus
Doc, I want the difference between HIV / AIDS and CoVid 19, what’s the doc ??
Thank you for the question.
There are many types of microorganisms that can infect humans and cause disease, one of which is a virus. The virus itself has many types, for example HIV (the cause of AIDS) and Corona virus (including the new Corona virus that causes COVID-19).
HIV / AIDS is clearly different from COVID-19. In addition to the different viruses that cause it, the mode of transmission, symptoms, severity, treatment, and the potential for healing of these two diseases can also be different. Here we describe the brief explanation:
The HIV virus attacks and weakens the immune system, causing patients to become more easily ill. This disease is transmitted through contact between body fluids, namely blood, anal fluid, vaginal fluid, penile fluid, as well as breast milk. Clinically, HIV sufferers can show a variety of symptoms, namely:
Fever, muscle and joint pain, sore throat, cough, runny nose in the acute phase, swollen lymph nodes
Asymptomatic in the window phase
Fever, skin rash, chronic diarrhea, recurrent fungal infections, weight loss dramatically, and multiorgan failure in the advanced phase (AIDS)
The new Corona virus infects the main body through the respiratory tract, although it can also cause interference with other organ systems. This disease is transmitted mainly through droplets (splashes of airway mucus) that are inhaled or swallowed to other people when the patient sneezes, coughs, talks, or spits carelessly. Transmission can also occur indirectly, for example when you shake hands, exchange personal belongings, or hold public facilities contaminated by sufferers. Clinically, the symptoms of COVID-19 can also vary, namely:
No symptoms at all
Mild symptoms, such as cough, fever, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, muscle and joint pain
Severe symptoms, shortness of breath, chills, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, and so on
Although both are caused by viruses, too many differences can be elaborated regarding these two conditions. Therefore, to expand your knowledge, it is recommended to read the following link:
