The virus that causes COVID-19 belongs to the coronavirus family that causes many diseases including colds and influenza, however, this is a new and previously unknown strain of coronavirus, and there is no record of this virus in the known history.
This is the reason why scientists are unable to know the disease, and so far, scientists and the general population alike have been puzzled. Since its first appearance in Wuhan in China, it has spread rapidly to all parts of the world. Now, even after more than 6 months of the epidemic, we still do not have a vaccine and treatment for it.
According to the HealthSite report, there are many misconceptions about how this disease spreads and how it exactly affects a person, and there is a lot of confusion among the general population as well. In the early days of the epidemic, it was believed that fever, coughing and breathing difficulties indicated infection.
However, over time, new and more severe complications have emerged, and there is still a lot of confusion about the nature of the virus and how it affects exactly the human body.
Q: What is the role of face masks in stopping transmission
To stop the spread of the disease, it is important to adhere to the safety guidelines established by health organizations, so wearing a face mask is an important preventive measure.
Homemade face masks are very effective in protecting you from the virus if you are not in close contact with an infected person. The same applies to surgical masks, providing about 40 to 45% of protection.
But N95 masks can filter 95% of all particles, and you need to wear this if you are a health care worker or if you are in close contact with the infected.
But here too, you need to choose one that doesn’t have a valve as it allows air to get out of the mask and get into the mask as well.

Q: How does the virus attack the blood vessels?
