coronavirus day by day symptoms
People may experience: cough, fever, tiredness, difficulty breathing (severe cases)
The incubation period, means the time between catching the virus and beginning to have symptoms of the disease. Most estimates of the incubation period for COVID-19 range from 1-14 days, most commonly around five days.
For most people, the first symptoms will be fever (temperature above 37.8C) and/or cough, which is usually dry to start with.
On average it took five days for people to develop signs of breathing difficulties – from displaying the first symptoms.
For most people, most symptoms will have settled within a week. About 85 per cent of people diagnosed with coronavirus will see their symptoms start to diminish by day seven.
You should check with your local authorities for the latest advice on seeking medical assistance.
This article describes the life cycle of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in six simple steps. It also discusses the role of spike (S) protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the role of Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors of the host cell in spreading the viruses. This understanding can help to develop suitable drugs and antibodies to counter the viruses.
How the Virus Spread
Severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) spreads primarily through droplets (respiratory secretions) and close person-to-person contact. When a person talks, coughs or sneezes, there are droplets. These droplets spread the virus. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Study found that people touched surfaces and their mouth or nose 3 to 4 times per hour. Hence, hand washing is really vital to stop coronavirus.
Life Cycle of COVID-19 (SAS-CoV-2)
After the virus enters into the body, it binds to primary target cells that express abundant virus receptor, the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), including pneumocytes and enterocytes in the respiratory system, lung, intestine, kidney, and blood vessels. The virus enters and replicates in these cells. The matured virions are then released to infect new target cells.… Read more..
