The Cause Of Corona Can Cause Death
, I want to ask. Why does anyone get corona virus until they die? does the cocid-19 virus have different types?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Corona Covid-19 virus is a pandemic infection in the world or an infection that is widespread in various parts of the world and has been determined by WHO as a pandemic infectious disease. The corona virus, which was discovered and spread since December 2019, is a new Corona virus called CoVid-19. Basically the Corona virus has long been found, but the Covid-19 virus is a new type of Corona virus. Corona viruses that have been found include:
Alpha Corona Virus that infects mammals and humans
Beta corona virus that infects mammals and humans
Delta Corona virus that infects birds and fish
Gamma Corona virus that infects birds and fish
The type of corona virus that often infects humans is corona virus 229E, NL63, OC43, HKU1. And currently newly discovered and infecting humans are MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and Covid-19 (also known as SARS CoV-2). Currently that is widely infected in the world is the corona virus type Covid-19.
This virus has a high virulence ability or in other words, this virus has the ability to spread and transmit to healthy individuals quickly, this is marked by the growth of cases in patients with Corona virus infection which is increasing rapidly, both in China, Europe and currently in Indonesia. This can be described as flu virus transmission, ie through air or droplets, in contact with contaminated body parts or saliva, snot or tear fluid in patients infected with the Corona covid-19 virus. So maintaining personal hygiene will help prevent and minimize the risk of infection to other humans.
The incubation period of this virus or the time span from which the entry of germs or viruses to cause symptoms. The incubation period for corona covid-19 virus ranges from 2-14 days. During the incubation period, people who have Corona virus infections cannot be known whether they are infected or not, because because the person is still in the incubation period, where often patients do not realize that he has been infected and because the person does not feel any comorbid complaints until clinical symptoms begin to appear within the range of 2-14 days which then began to be felt by the person. Patients with Covid-19 infection can experience comorbid complaints in the form of:
Shortness, if the patient's condition decreases
Symptoms of indigestion, but rarely encountered
While the case of death in patients with Covid-19 infection can be increased, especially if the patient has a comorbid disease, such as:
Chronic respiratory disease
In general, the case of death of patients with Covid-19 infection is around 3.8-5% of the total cases. However, the presence of other diseases that are already owned by patients as above, can increase the risk of death by 8-10%. So that patients who span the range of transmission and death are patients with old age.
By improving healthy lifestyles and increasing endurance, as well as making recommendations from WHO or the Indonesian government to prevent covid-19 virus infection, it is expected that the risk of transmission will be smaller. Some recommended businesses are:
Wash your hands with soap and water
If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer with a minimum of 60% alcohol content
Avoiding crowds or avoiding frequent gatherings in crowded areas
It is best to postpone traveling to a risky area
Keep your distance from people coughing or getting sick with a fever of around 1-2 meters
Cover your mouth and nose when you rock and sneeze with a tissue or upper arm
Use a mask if needed
