What are Corona Viruses and COVID 19

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.

COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

Symptoms

Most common symptoms of COVID-19: fever, tiredness, and dry cough.

Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea.

These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing.

Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

Individuals at Higher Risk
  • Older persons
  • Persons with pre-existing medical conditions – high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes etc.

In hotspots/cluster (as per MoHFW) and in large migration gatherings/ evacuees centres

    1. Within 7 days of illness – rRT-PCR
    2. After 7 days of illness – Antibody test (If negative, confirmed by rRT-PCR)
