What is it? (read below for more reassurance, don’t life in fear, but be educated).
Co= Corona Vi= Virus D= Disease 19= 2019. Hence, the disease is mutated and a new disease. This disease has not been researched enough yet, since it is new. We do not know entirely how it behaves so it is scary. It is unknown how you will react if you catch it, different people have different symptoms from mild to severe.
Symptoms do not show until 2-14 days, you can be carrying it for 14 days after exposure. You can be a carrier and not show symptoms. It is also highly contagious. You are contagious 7 days after your symptoms appear, and have not had a fever for 72 hours. I’m not sure how accurate these facts are because this new virus is not completely understood.
All of these factors make Covid-19, a mysterious, but more dangerous virus. It is worse than seasonal flu, and more contagious, but we also have a flu shot, which comes into play in regards to these stats.
I know what it is like to have pneumonia, I’ve had it twice. One of the rare complications to this mysterious virus is pneumonia. I do not want to go through that ever again. It is horrific. I recovered though and here I am.
Symptoms of Covid-19 (which I said previously, are mild to severe.) are:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
