In January 2020, scientists declared a new virus named SARS-CoV-2 or Coronavirus or Covid-19 was responsible for respiratory disease and pneumonia outbreaks in Wuhan, China. Since then, the novel coronavirus has spread worldwide, leaving tens of millions of people ill. We are learning more about the coronavirus that caused the epidemic for the first time since the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic.
Let us find out what doctors are studying about SARS-CoV-2 and its correlated disease, COVID-19, which includes sudden symptoms and how to handle it.
Anosmia, loss of smell - The most ordinarily related symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Though, as the disease has expanded worldwide, healthcare providers have remarked some strange symptoms, including loss of smell anosmia, and lack of taste or age. In South Korea, 30% of people who tested positive for the virus said that loss of smell was their first major symptom. In Germany, more than 2 of 3 confirmed cases involved loss of smell and taste.
SARS-CoV-2 binds tightly to human cells - The virus that has caused SARS or SARS-CoV causes COVID-19, both of which are types of coronaviruses but researchers have recently discovered a significant difference, which may suggest that the new coronavirus How difficult it is to stop - SARS COV-2 - the virus that causes COVID-19 binds to human cells 10 to 20 times more strongly than SARS-CoV - the virus responsible for SARS.
Type A blood may be more responsive to the virus - A Chinese study of 2,173 hospitalized people with COVID-19 and found that the balance of people with type A blood was significantly higher than others, based on the percentage of people with type A blood in the usual population. The study also discovered that there were fewer sick people with type O blood than would be assumed.
Some have digestive symptoms - The most obvious signs of coronavirus are shortness of breath, cough, and fever, but some further feel digestive symptoms of coronavirus diseases, which include diarrhea, vomiting, lack of taste, and abdominal discomfort. According to a study, 48.5 percent of the 204 people hospitalized with COVID-19 had digestive symptoms. A small percentage of 7 people had only digestive symptoms. These individuals did not have a cough, fever, or shortness of breath.
