SARS-Cov-2 remains the most widely spread viral infection in the world. It has no cure and affects millions of people all over the world.. No symptoms show up until two to six weeks after being exposed to the virus. By that time, nearly all people have become infected with some form of the virus. It spreads easily through bodily secretions (sebum) and is easily transmitted from one person to another.
The virus is caused by a strain of a virus called “Sars-Cov-2”. In the recent years, we’ve learned a lot more about viruses. For example, it was discovered that the cause of some forms of cancers, such as skin cancer and lung cancer, is a virus. It was also discovered that the virus that causes colds is a type of virus.. So, if someone has sars-cov-2, they are more likely to get a cold.. But, not everyone who gets the virus develops colds.
SARS-Cov-2 is an opportunistic infection. This means it can be contagious even though the symptoms are not present. In other words, you can carry the virus without having any visible symptoms.. It’s important to note that this kind of infection often has many potential sources.. So, while you might have some uncomplicated symptoms, there could be other issues causing your illness. A simple upper respiratory tract infection (URI) is often accompanied by a fever and a generalized feeling of illness.. However, people with a family history of illness are particularly vulnerable to developing an illness associated with the virus. Also, people who spend a great deal of time outdoors and people with pre-existing health conditions are at greater risk of developing an opportunistic infection..
The medical world still have a great deal of work to do in developing a reliable treatment for the virus.. There have been some successful laboratory tests to identify a few strains of the virus, but no one is aware of the exact cure or preventive measures. If a strain can be isolated, it may be that a cure can be found, or at least a better method of preventing the symptoms from appearing. Currently, there are no clinical trials testing the effectiveness of various vaccines or treatments..
In the mean time, there are clinical trials testing new drugs to prevent the occurrence of complications from the virus.. A trial by AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, and Generex held over nine months ago with the goal of helping to prolong the life expectancy of those with severe COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). The participants had chronic cough, shortness of breath, and chest congestion. A high percentage of the patients in the trial experienced improvement, and the study is ongoing. Generex is currently testing a lung function liquid that they plan to roll out into clinical trials.
The next potential source of contagion is from sneezing and coughing.. It’s estimated that as many as six million people experience symptoms of allergic rhinitis (allergic to dust, mild viral respiratory illness) and a corresponding number of individuals get sick on a daily basis from the bacteria found in dust. Dust particles can lodge in the sinuses and nasal passage and cause an inflammation, or blockage of the sinus cavities. As more people continue to suffer from sinus congestion, sinusitis, and other conditions that result from blocked sinuses, the potential for catching the flu or other virus increases dramatically. Although most symptoms of influenza last up to several weeks, they are often less than a week long in some people.. If someone sneezes or coughs while they are sick, the virus can be spread to several people within a short amount of time.
The most common way to catch this deadly virus is through contact with a sick person or any kind of contaminated object. It is possible to contract this through touching an object that has been used by an infected person, such as a cough syringe or shared utensil used to feed an infant. It is also possible to become infected if a part of the respiratory tract is damaged by a non-viral agent such as a vaccine or medication, thus causing an inflammation of the tissue that lines the lungs. In order to avoid getting this kind of infection, it is important to keep all surfaces of the nose and mouth clean, including the interior of the cheekbones, and to gently wash hands after using the restroom. If children are sharing foods with other children, vaccines can cause an outbreak of this disease within families. Anyone who appears to have a greater risk of catching this kind of virus should seek medical attention right away.
Colds are similar to the symptoms of a cold and often mimic those of a viral infection such as the flu. But when it comes to the complications caused by the flu and its complications.. The most serious consequence associated with a cold is death. Therefore, ..
