Coronavirus produces significantly different effects, ranging from asymptomatic reactions to exacerbations of disease in intensive care units.
And a prominent expert in infectious diseases revealed that there are 4 symptoms that indicate a more serious form of the disease. What makes “Covid-19” a formidable enemy is the unpredictability of its effects, according to the “Russia Today” website.
Some people seem to have no symptoms, while others experience effects from which they may never recover.
Speaking to Express, Dr. Carolyn Hemsley, Clinical Lead for Infectious Diseases at a leading London hospital and medical advisor to PPE provider Wise Protec, indexed the severity of symptoms.
Many people show classic respiratory symptoms, such as a persistent dry cough, trouble breathing, sore throat and nasal congestion, said Hemsley.
She added: “We now know that other symptoms may include loss of the sense of smell or taste or the emergence of gastrointestinal symptoms, but a large number of people with” Covid-19 “do not show any symptoms at all.” She warns that these symptoms are not usually a cause for concern, but that some symptoms may cause a more severe form of the disease
And she continued, explaining: “The symptoms that should be watched are shortness of breath, persistent fever, chest pain and confusion. If you find that you cannot finish a sentence without feeling short of breath or that your breathing is really fast while at rest, or you feel short of breath during normal and non-strenuous daily activities. You should definitely seek medical advice. ”
And how quickly the symptoms worsen can indicate the severity of the disease, and many people who suffer from severe symptoms of the disease continue to suffer for about a week when the body has an exaggerated immune response, and attention should be paid to that as well, according to Himley.
And the health expert continued: “We know that people who show symptoms and feel unwell, are more likely to comply with public health messages and stay at home, thus reducing the spread of the virus, but it is important that these people do not ignore the exacerbation of symptoms and the need to seek advice.”
She also explained that those who do not have symptoms may go about their daily activities completely unaware that they are contagious, and they can transmit the virus to others.
So, it’s important for all of us to stick to hand hygiene, social distancing, and wear masks in public, Hemsley said.
How to relieve mild symptoms while at home:
There is currently no specific treatment for Coronavirus, but symptoms can often be relieved at home until you recover.
The British National Health Administration revealed that if you suffer from a high temperature, the following can be followed:
• Rest exercise.
Drink plenty of fluids (water is best) to avoid dehydration.
• Take paracetamol or ibuprofen if you feel uncomfortable.
