Is Covid 19 Included In The Type Of Flu Virus?
I want to ask, is Covid 19 included in the type of flu virus but more deadly?
Hello Anastasia ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ..
Covid-19 or also called corona virus is a type of virus that infects the respiratory system, the virus can cause respiratory problems from mild to severe, such as pneumonia, MERS and SARS. This virus can affect anyone from newborns, teenagers, pregnant women, and even the elderly. Symptoms that are commonly caused in these patients are:
- Fever> 38 degrees Celsius
- Up to suits for breathing
These symptoms can appear within 2 days to 2 weeks after a person is exposed to the corona virus. There is no definitive research whether animals become a way of transmission of the virus, but several ways of transmitting the corona virus from humans to humans are:
Accidentally holding mouth, nose or eyes after touching objects affected by coughing or saliva splashes of corona sufferers without washing hands first
- Close contact with corona sufferers such as touching or shaking hands
- Do not accidentally breathe air containing sneezing or coughing sparks from sufferers of corona
The way to diagnose someone with corona virus is to do a number of checks such as:
- Blood sampling
- Throat swab
- Chest X-ray
It is better to see a doctor immediately, if you have complaints as described above, and do not improve even though you have been given treatment, have taken immune medications, until adequate rest, especially if symptoms appear after interacting with sufferers of corona. But if you do not have these symptoms, you should rest at home, and limit traveling outside the house for 14 days (the corona virus incubation period), because you indirectly help to break the chain of transmission of the virus.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
