Coronavirus Overview and Information
Coronavirus, also known as Coronavirus Simplex, is one of the most common strains of the Coronavirus family. There are approximately 100 different strains of Coronavirus, and approximately half of all reported cases of the disease appear to be caused by strains of the “family tree,” Coronaviruses. The virus that causes Coronavirus is often called the “parainfluenza” virus, which is also responsible for causing a similar disease in young children called Pneumoniae, Coronavirus (P.Acnes). This article will briefly examine some of the facts surrounding the various strains of this respiratory infection.
Coronaviruses are highly contagious and are spread through direct contact with an infected individual, or a product or item used by an infected person. The most commonly reported symptoms of Coronavirus in humans include high fever, cough with or without green mucus, wheezing and shortness of breath. Less often but more frequently, Coronavirus symptoms cause more severe, wide-ranging signs and symptoms, including severe muscle and joint pain, sore throat, headache, lethargy, loss of appetite, malaise, irritability, vomiting, and diarrhea. Animals are also susceptible to Coronavirus and may show the same symptoms of humans. Animals infected with Coronavirus experience more pronounced and more severe physical distancing. Animals can be very contagious and can spread by indirect physical contact, such as when animals groom each other, and when animals are handled by humans.
Since the disease is a form of respiratory illness, it can spread rapidly between people, especially those with pre-existing respiratory problems, such as allergies. Humans are the most common source of Coronavirus infections, with domestic animals and birds being common carriers. The virus is transmitted through direct contact, such as when an infected individual coughs or sneezes into another person’s face. However, Coronavirus can also be transmitted from animal to human and vice versa, as well as from human to animal and vice versa. If you believe that you or a member of your family has contracted Coronavirus, it is important to consult a physician as soon as possible. Early detection of this disease can help prevent serious complications and illness that could have been prevented.
