Sars-CoV2 is the name of the virus that causes Covid-19 or Corona virus disease 2019. There is no current medication or vaccine for this condition.
It is believed that the disease started in what is called a wet market in Wuhan china. This is another name for a market the sells live animals for consumption.
It is believed that the virus was transmitted from bats to pangolins, which were sold at the market. From there the disease spread to humans and has led to a worldwide pandemic.
The virus is believed to spread throughout the population via droplets exhaled from an infected person's nose or mouth. Many individuals may contract the disease, show minor to no symptoms and continue to spread it. Individuals that are immunocompromised, elderly or have a genetic predisposition to getting this disease are more likely to become severely ill.
We are learning that the virus can infect anyone. Ongoing data from the US and Italy indicate that every age group is affected, both young and old.
Patients in intensive care were just as likely to be under 60 as they were to be above 60, with the greatest risk of mortality over 70. Long term health consequences at this point are unknown but may include long term disability.
The disease spreads person to person. It is extremely contagious and for every person infected between 2-4 people will get the virus.
The virus lives on paper or metal surfaces for up to 24 hours. Some scientific reports suggest it can live for several days depending on the kind of surfaces that are present.
Up to 85 percent of the population may be asymptomatic but at this point we simply don’t know. The real concern is the number of people infected at anyone time can overwhelm hospitals and the individuals that need it most.
Social distancing is a concept that is designed to slow down the spread of infection. This includes ideas like cancelling major events or staying six feet from another person. In the extreme cases, cities can shut down and quarantines can be implemented.
Diabetics, the elderly,
hypertensives and asthmatics are most likely to suffer, but no one is entirely immune, however. The initial data suggesting the virus has a greater affect on people older than 60 was inaccurate. The US experience splits evenly among young and old about 50/50.
The virus is called a Coronavirus because of its shape. There are extensions on the virus called spike proteins which act as a lock and key, allowing the virus to gain access to the cell. Once inside it begins its deadly journey.
In certain individuals, this access causes a Cytokine storm which overwhelms the immune system and causes severe inflammation. The access point is through a receptor called the ACE_2. There are many organs that contain ACE receptors, including the lungs, heart and kidneys.
Anyone with severe or sudden shortness of breath or high fever should seek immediate medical care.
Generally, between 5-14 days. However, you can be contagious before you know you have it, but symptoms can be rapid onset.
Be vigilant. Wear protective clothing including a mask and gloves. If you have the disease or someone you know has it you should implement a 14 day quarantine.
We know that a strong immune system is crucial when fighting this virus. Make sure you eat well, take your supplements and stay well hydrated.
A natural and hassle-free way to prevent COVID-19.
Many people have low immunity, We suggest taking few of supplements we have mentioned below to prevent from COVID-19.
