Coronavirus is a large family of viruses that cause diseases in humans and animals. In humans usually cause respiratory infections, it feels common flu to diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). A new coronavirus style found in humans since the extraordinary event came out in Wuhan China, in December 2019, then named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV2), and causes Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19).
2.Is COVID-19 the same as SARS?
COVID-19 is caused by SARS-COV2 which counts in the same coronavirus family as the sars cause in th. 2003, just not similar to the virus style. Symptoms are the same as SARS, but SARS mortality rate (9.6%) higher than COVID-19 (less than 5%), although the number of COVID-19 cases is much higher than SARS. COVID-19 is calculated to have a wider and faster spread to some countries than SARS.
3.What are the signs of COVID-19?
Common symptoms include fever ≥380C, dry cough, and shortness of breath. If anyone who is in 14 days before going out the following signs have traveled to the infected country, or has been in close contact with covid-19 sufferers, then in the following person will be cashed further laboratory examination to ensure the diagnosis. The list of infected countries can be monitored through http://infeksiemerging.kemkes.go.id.
4.How dangerous is COVID-19?
Like other respiratory diseases, COVID-19 can cause mild signs of colds, sore throats, coughs, and fevers. About 80% of cases can be cured without special treatment. About 1 in every 6 people may suffer from severe pain, such as pneumonia or difficulty breathing, which usually comes out gradually. Although the death rate of the disease is still low (about 3%), but for older people, and people with a medical atmosphere that already exists at first (such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease), they are usually more susceptible to being seriously ill. Looking at developments to date, more than 50% of confirmation cases have been declared improved, and recovery rates will consistently increase.
5.How can humans be infected with COVID-19?
A person can be infected from covid-19 sufferers. The disease can spread through small droplets from the nose or mouth when coughing or sneezing. The following droplet then falls on the surrounding objects. Then unless someone else touches an object that has been contaminated with the droplet, then the person touches the eye, nose or mouth (facial triangle), then the person can be infected with COVID19. Or it can be calculated that a person is infected with COVID-19 when accidentally inhaling a droplet from a sufferer. This is why it is important to maintain the distance until not enough is more than one mtr. from a sick person. To date, experts have consistently run investigations to select the source of the virus, its exposure style, and its transmission steps. Keep an accurate and official source of information about the progression of the disease.
The main way of transmission of the disease is through a small droplet that is secreted against while a person is coughing or sneezing. Currently, WHO assesses that the risk of transmission from someone who does not have covid19 is very unlikely. However, many people identified as COVID-19 only experience symptoms such as a mild cough, or do not complain of pain, which can occur against the initial steps of the disease. Until now, experts are still carrying out investigations to select the period of transmission or the era of COVID-19 incubation. Keep an eye on accurate and official sources of information about the growth of the disease.
7.Can covid-19 be transmitted by air?
Not. Until now, research has said that covid-19-causing viruses are transmitted through contact with droplets from the respiratory tract.
8.Can humans be infected with COVID-19 from animals?
COVID-19 is caused by one type of virus from the coronavirus family, which is commonly found against animals. Until now, the source of covid-19 transmission animals is not yet known, experts continue to investigate various types of infectious animals.
9.Can pets spread COVID-19?
Currently, no evidence has been found that pets like dogs or cats can be infected with the COVID-19 virus. However, it can be much better to always wash your hands with soap and water after contact with the pet. This habit can nourish you against a variety of common bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella that can shift between pets and humans.
