Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 is new illness that can cause lung inflammations and respiratory problems. The disease is caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Clinical symptoms vary from ones similar to the common cold (coughs, runny nose, sore throat, sore muscles, headaches) to severe complications (pneumonia and sepsis).
COVID-19 is a new disease and scientists are still learning on how the disease spread in the population. However, it is thought that the disease is mainly spread through respiratory droplets and close contact with infected person. Droplets are small particles spat out through the mouth when one coughs, sneezes, or speaks. These droplets may contain viruses which may cause the disease. Droplets are able to travel a certain distance (usually about 1 meter).
Droplets can stick to clothing or objects around an infected person when they sneeze or cough. However, droplet particles are quite large so they could not stay in the air for too long. Therefore, the sick are required to use a mask in order to prevent the droplets from spreading. Until now, there has been no scientific evidence of COVID-19 being transmitted through food.
Coughs and Sore Throat
Shortness of breath
COVID-19 starts off similar to the common cold, and gradually develops to more severe conditions such as pneumonia (lung inflammations that results in breathing difficulties).
