How To Detect Corona Virus
good afternoon, i want to ask whether the corona virus can be cured and can attack children. ? and the distinguishing features. thank you
Thank you for the question.
Corona virus (SARS CoV-2) which causes Corona disease (COVID-19) is currently being discussed. Like most other viruses, this virus is more susceptible to attacking people whose immune systems are weak, including infants, children, the elderly, or sufferers of certain diseases, such as HIV, diabetes, malnutrition, autoimmune disorders, and other chronic diseases.
In general, the symptoms of Corona's disease in children are almost the same as adults, namely in the form of fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, muscle and joint pain, as well as other unwell sensations. It's just that, in children, these symptoms are often not typical. Not infrequently, the symptoms of Corona disease can be very similar to respiratory infections caused by viruses or other bacteria.
So what is the way to distinguish it?
Independently, Corona's disease can be distinguished by a history of contact with COVID-19 sufferers, a history of contact with people from the COVID-19 outbreak area, or a history of traveling to the COVID-19 outbreak area. However, to be more accurate, a doctor or pediatrician's examination is needed directly to distinguish this disease from other infections. Usually, if you are suspected of having COVID-19, then the child will be advised to undergo blood tests, x-rays, sputum testing (if possible), as well as throat swab examination.
Hope this helps ...
