United, we can beat the coronavirus

The WHO has declared the Coronavirus disease as a global pandemic. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory tract infection caused by a newly emergent coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, that was first recognized in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Genetic sequencing of the virus suggests that SARS-CoV-2 is a betacoronavirus closely linked to the SARS virus.

While most people with COVID-19 develop mild or uncomplicated illness, approximately 14% develop severe disease requiring hospitalization and oxygen support and 5% require admission to an intensive care unit. In severe cases, COVID-19 can be complicated by acute respiratory disease syndrome (ARDS), and cardiac injury. Older age and co-morbid diseases have been reported as risk factors, and recent analysis confirmed older age and higher Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score on admission were associated with higher mortality. The median duration of viral RNA detection was 20.0 days in survivors, but SARS-CoV-2 virus was detectable until death in non-survivors. The longest observed duration of viral shedding in survivors was 37 days. (Source – WHO)
