Information about the corona virus, which threatens life both in the world and in our country, and has turned into a global epidemic, is available on the website of the Ministry of Health. So what is the corona virus? Here is the definition of the corona virus; Corona viruses are a large family of viruses found in both animals and humans. Some infect humans and are known to cause more serious illnesses from the common cold, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

Corona virus disease, which is generally in the risk group of the elderly, can be transmitted from person to person and manifests itself in different symptoms. Here, ‘what are the symptoms of corona virus? answer to the question;

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, fatigue and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected, but do not have any symptoms and do not feel bad. Most people (about 80%) recover without needing special treatment. About 1 in 6 people who get the COVID-19 virus become seriously ill and have difficulty breathing.

Older people and those with underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes are more likely to develop serious illness. About 2% of people who contract the disease have died. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

‘How is the Corona virus transmitted?’ The question is one of the most researched issues against the corona virus in our country. While the Ministry of Health and officials call on citizens to ‘stay at home’, they also underline that the disease is usually transmitted by actions such as breathing, coughing and touching. Here, the ways of transmission of the corona virus can be explained as follows.

The COVID-19 virus is transmitted from person to person through small droplets thrown into the air by a sick person when coughing, sneezing or breathing. Other people close to the sick person can be infected by breathing droplets in the air, as well as by falling on the surrounding objects and surfaces, and it is possible for people to get COVID-19 by touching their eyes, nose or mouth with their dirty hands that have touched these areas. That’s why it’s so important to keep a distance of more than 1 meter (3 feet) from someone who is sick and to wash hands frequently.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is evaluating ongoing research into the ways in which COVID-19 can spread and sharing updated findings.
