at the end of november. At the beginning of december, he felt that he was getting better, but at that moment, the fever, and he started to cough and ran out of the body.
It went on for another week, and once again, felt, Reed, that he was on his way back, when all of a sudden the cough became even more severe.
" It was hard to breathe. I was out of breath, just as I would be to go to the bathroom. It was like the worst flu I've ever had, " he says of the Sydney Morning Herald.
Reed went to the doctor and got anti-inflammatory drugs for the lunginflammationen him. A little over a month after the first förkylningskänslan, he was restored whole as the other.
the disease resembles the symptoms of the flu. In mild cases, the disease can be difficult to distinguish from a common cold. Therefore, it is not, in practice, to know if you have covid-19 or any other infection, if you are not being tested, according to the Folkhälsomyndigheten. However, there are some differences.
generally allow the disease to know 5-6 days after they were infected, even though there are a number of all 1-to 14-day incubation period, according to the world health organization. In fact, judging by the reports from China are the main symptoms of these are:a Link to the graphics
• Fever (88 per cent, of all cases.
- • dry cough (68%)
• High fatigue (38 per cent).
• Difficulty in breathing (19%).
it is Quite common is headache (14%) and sore throat (14%), and one-tenth of the experience went. On the other hand, less than 5%, and nasal stuffiness. In severe cases, the respiratory symptoms may be inflammation of the lungs.
the fact that 80 per cent of the people who get the disease may have mild, or moderate symptoms. Some of them, in the mildest, the symptoms are experiencing is not even the fact that they are sick.
in a large chinese study and a world health organization-report, 14 percent of those who go for treatment of severe respiratory symptoms, and 6% require intensive care. Early treatment gives a better prognosis. Most people recover in a few weeks. How hard you hit depends on your general state of health and how much virusdos you are exposed to.
According to the WHO report, the die was 3.8 per cent, but in the real world, the figure of the mortality rate is assumed to be much lower, since a large number of mild cases have never been diagnosed.
In this country, which is tested in the most number of people, and which had also been hit hard, the republic of Korea, the proportion of the dead in the present time, approximately 0.8 per cent.
in older people is, however, the mortality rate is much higher. According to China's center for infectious disease control to die almost 15 per cent of those who had sought medical care for the covid-19, which is over 80 years old.
the virus family. They are four of the most common of them is that it infects people, will establish itself only in the upper respiratory tract (throat, mouth, nose), and gives rise to approximately one-quarter of all of the common cold.
Since 2003, there are, however, three of the worse solutions, which also sits in the lungs: sars, mers, and the new coronavirus (which is the technical name of the sars-cov-2).
The new coronavirus appears to breed mostly in the nose and throat rather than the lungs. This means that it is less dangerous than sars, and mers, but also more contagious.
The new virus through the circulation of the blood, including travel to other organs like the kidneys and the intestines, but it is rare. Less than 10 per cent of the patients studied in China, was experiencing nausea and/or diarrhea.
the spread of the virus. The world health organization has not ruled out that people with no symptoms, infection, but you think that it is very rare, and that it's not that the infection has spread all over the world.
most people are infected in the family, workplace, or other place where they have been in close contact with other people for a little bit longer period of time.
this is The most common route of transmission is droplet infection, which is when people are coughing. The virus is able to reach up to a metre into the air by the cough.
You can also become infected by getting the virus on your hands, for example, through droplet infection, and then you don't in your eyes, nose or mouth.
the Droplets remain in the air for a brief moment and then falls down on the object and the surface. There, the virus can be stored for up to several days, but there is no evidence to suggest that the person may have been infected by the subject.
There are studies that suggest that the virus could be spread through the feces, but the risk is estimated to be low.
