What is coronavirus or COVID-19?


The coronavirus is a family of viruses that can cause a range of which are the causative agent for several diseases in humans including the common cold and more severe forms like SARS and MERS which are life-threatening and even can lead to death.

This virus is named after its shape which is present in the form of a crown with protrusions around it and hence is known as the coronavirus (family of coronavirus).


During recent times the coronavirus has affected the entire world very badly and led to the death of several lives.
A report by the Chinese Centres of Disease Control looked at more than 87,670 confirmed cases of the coronavirus infection.


After the infection due to coronavirus it showed:

  •  81% of  infected people with mild symptoms
  •  14% of  infected people with severe symptoms
  •  5% of infected people become critically ill


According to the study by the scientist, coronavirus has affected mostly to either child or to the old aged people middle-aged grouped people are not so much affected, now the question arises why it is so?

why children and newborns are more venerable to COVID-19 infection:

In children, the immune system of children is not so much developed so they are not able to cope with the infection by the coronavirus and not only coronavirus but several other bacterial, fungal and other viral infections.


Old aged people and COVID-19 infection:

Human aging is characterized by both physical and physiological frailty. Aging is associated with declines in adaptive and innate immunity and a decline in multiple areas of immune function. In old age ability to mount primary immune responses against novel antigens declines significantly. In elderly individuals usually present chronic low-level inflammation, higher infection rates, and chronic diseases.

Due to the decline in the immune response against several infections due to aging old aged people are more venerable against coronavirus. 


Old aged is mostly affected due to the low immune response this fact is supported by these statistics,

Less than 0.5% of patients aged under 50 have died due to COVID-19 according to the Chinese Centres of Disease Control.


However, infection due to COV-19 figure spikes rapidly to:
  •  1.3% in their 50s
  •  3.6% in their 60s
  •  8% in their 70s
  •  15% over 80


The coronavirus has affected almost all the aged groups but rarely to the age group between 16-45.


The people who are most affected in this age group are either having high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease or with long-term lung problems such as those caused by a lifetime of smoking and to those who were already sick


The death rate for people with no other health problems is 0.9%.


However, this rises to:

  •  6% in people with high blood pressure
  •  6% in people with long-term lung problems such as those caused by a lifetime of smoking
  •  7% in people with diabetes
  •  11% in people with cardiovascular disease

Symptoms that are seen after the infection of coronavirus.


The signs and symptoms due to the coronavirus depend upon the severity of the infection and our immune response against the pathogen.


If you have a mild to moderate upper-respiratory infection such as the common cold, your symptoms may include

  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Not feeling well overall


Some coronaviruses can cause severe symptoms which shows symptoms such as


  • Fever, which may be quite high if you have pneumonia
  • bronchitis
  • Cough with mucus
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or tightness when you breathe and cough


What is the mode of transmission coronavirus? How (easily) does it spread?


According to recent information, lower mammals are the source of the virus, this virus is now spreading from one person to another (human-to-human transmission). There is currently not enough epidemiological information to determine how easily and sustainably this virus spreads between people.


Since the virus mainly affects the upper respiratory part of humans so there is strong evidence that the virus seems to be transmitted mainly via respiratory droplets that people sneeze, cough, or exhale.


As per researchers the incubation period for COVID-19 (i.e. the time between exposure to the virus or infection due to virus and onset of symptoms) is currently estimated between two and 14 days after the infection.


At this stage, we know that the virus can be transmitted when those infected show (flu-like) symptoms. However, there are still uncertainties as to whether mild or asymptomatic cases can transmit the virus. 


Generally, elderly people and those with conditions like (e.g. hypertension, heart disorders, diabetes, liver disorders, and respiratory disease) are expected to be more at risk of developing severe symptoms because due to the above-mentioned disease our immune system is badly affected either directly or indirectly.


Preventative measures against coronavirus(COVID-19):


Right now several kinds of research are going on to make a vaccine or antidote against the Nobel coronavirus, so by doing below mentioned things we can reduce your risk of getting or spreading infection by a coronavirus.

  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
  • Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that you frequently touch
  • Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Then throw away the tissue and wash your hands.
  • Staying home when sick
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoiding touching your face, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • avoid contact with animals, their excretions or droppings.
  • follow general rules governing hand hygiene and food hygiene.

Timeline about coronavirus(COVID-19)?

Let’s have a look at incidents due to the COVID-19:

Late December 2019:
A thousands of pneumonia cases of unknown origin appears in the city of china, Wuhan.


December 31, 2019:
Alert issued by the local Wuhan Municipal Health Commission to the China CDC and a notification was sent to the World Health Organization about this unknown origin-based disease outbreak.


January 7, 2020: 
The pathogen was identified as a new type of coronavirus and given the name 2019-nCoV. It was now learned that this virus was closely related but distinct to the one that caused the SARS crisis in 2003.


January 11, 2020: 
The first death is reported (a person died two days earlier). The Wuhan Municipal Health Commission issues its first public report announcing this novel coronavirus and starts issuing daily update reports now the scientists and researchers group gathered in numbers to find a solution.


January 20, 2020: 
7 confirmed patients have now died, the virus has spread outside of Wuhan, and this has become a national issue. China’s National Health Commission takes over primary responsibility.


January 23, 2020: 
China announces unprecedented quarantine operations in major cities ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday.


Roughly just within the period of 1-month following the first inkling that this might be more than just another flu outbreak, the number of cases went from 104 to +653 to +5,417 to +26,548 roughly every 10 days.

In other words, in every 240 hours, the number of cases was increasing due to coronavirus infection between 5 to 8 times.


Note: The above data mentioned is taken from the news

Since we are not having coronavirus vaccine or antidote so what to do for being healthy?


The cure for any virus is support for the immune system - vitamin A and C are generally helpful in sufficient doses. As for making a vaccine, it would be an exercise in futility since it takes much longer to develop and produce a vaccine than for the virus to mutate.

To boost your immune system so that our body can fight efficiently againstCOVID-19 infection.

  • Don't smoke.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and leafy vegetables.
  • yoga.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get sufficient sleep.
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meat thoroughly.
  • Try to minimize stress.



Healthy immune system warriors need good, regular nourishment for proper functioning. Scientists have long recognized that people who live in poverty and are malnourished are more vulnerable to infectious diseases.



There is some evidence that various micronutrient deficiencies — for example, deficiencies of zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, and E — alter immune responses in animals.

To boost your immune system against coronavirus and from other pathogens add these things to your diet.


Add some citrus fruits to your diet:

Vitamin C is thought to increase the production of white blood cells. These are key to fighting infections. We have to take vitamin C regularly in our diet because our body doesn't produce or store it, you need daily vitamin C for continued health. Almost all citrus fruits are high in vitamin C. With such a variety to choose from, it's easy to add a squeeze of this vitamin to any meal.

Vitamin c is found in these fruits in abundant quantity:

  • Grapefruit
  • Red bell pepper (vegetable)
  • oranges
  • tangerines
  • lemons
  • limes


Broccoli


  • Broccoli is supercharged with vitamins and minerals. Packed with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as many other antioxidants and fiber, broccoli is one of the healthiest


Ginger


  • Ginger helps to decrease chronic pain
  • Cholesterol-lowering properties so prevent hypertension.
  • Ginger may help decrease inflammation which can help reduce a sore throat and other inflammatory illnesses.
  • Ginger may also help decrease nausea.

Garlic


  • garlic helps in lowering blood pressure.
  • Slow down the hardening of the arteries.
  • Garlic’s immune-boosting properties seem to come from a heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, such as allicin.

Spinach


  • Rich in vitamin C.
  • Spinach is packed with numerous antioxidants and beta carotene, which may increase the infection-fighting ability of our immune systems.
  • Light cooking of spinach enhances its vitamin A and allows other nutrients to be released from oxalic acid.

Yogurt


  • Yogurt can also be a great source of vitamin D.
  • Vitamin D helps regulate the immune system and is thought to boost our body’s natural defenses against diseases.

Almonds


  • Nuts, such as almonds, are packed with vitamins and also have healthy fats. These healthy fats help to retain vitamin E(fat-soluble vitamin) in the body.
  • When it comes to preventing and fighting off colds, vitamin E tends to take a backseat to vitamin C


Green tea


  • Green tea is also a good source of the amino acid L-theanine. L-theanine may aid in the production of germ-fighting compounds in your T-cells.


Papaya


  • Papayas contain a digestive enzyme called papain that has anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Papaya is enriched with vitamin C.


Kiwi


  • Kiwi is full of a ton of essential nutrients, including
  • Folate
  • Potassium
  • vitamin K
  • vitamin C, Vitamin C boosts white blood cells to fight infection.


Sunflower seeds


  • Sunflower seeds are full of nutrients like
  • Phosphorous
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin B-6
  • Incredibly high in vitamin E(a powerful antioxidant).


Shellfish


  • Shellfish are packed with zinc.
  • Zinc doesn’t get as much attention as many other vitamins and minerals, but our bodies need it so that our immune cells can function as intended to do.
  • For adult men, it’s 11 milligrams (mg), and for women, it’s 8 mg. Too much zinc can actually inhibit immune system function.


Shellfish that are high in zinc include:
  • crab
  • clams
  • lobster
  • mussels


ALL THE ABOVE MENTIONED FOOD ITEMS CONTAINS MOST ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS WHICH HELP IN BOOSTING OUR IMMUNE RESPONSE SO THAT OUR BODY CAN FIGHT AGAINST CORONAVIRUS AND OTHER DISEASE AS WELL.

Wuhan coronavirus infection

Since infection against coronavirus is not having treatment so how doctors are treating the patient with coronavirus infection?


There are no specific treatments for coronavirus infections. So doctors provide what's known as supportive care, first of all, give them some commonly used drugs to relieve them and to suppress the symptoms due to coronavirus.

  • Taking over-the-counter medicines for pain, fever, and cough.
  • Using a room humidifier or taking a hot shower to help ease a sore throat and cough
  • Getting plenty of rest
  • Drinking fluids


The strategy of supportive care is to do whatever's possible to keep vital organ systems functioning. That means monitoring vitals such as temperature, blood pressure, and oxygen levels and trying to keep those as normal as we can.


Recently, a group of scientists tested a number of antivirals in the lab for their effectiveness against the new coronavirus. They found that remade sivir stopped the virus from replicating in a lab dish.


Similarly, another group of scientists found that chloroquine — an approved and widely used anti-malarial and autoimmune disease drug — was also effective in stopping the virus from spreading in human cells in the lab, the researchers reported in a short letter published Feb. 4 in the journal Cell Research.

According to Dr. Reiss


Instead of finding a single drug to treat the coronavirus,
"I would suggest a cocktail of drugs that target different stages of replication "


The reason for giving this statement is this virus is probably going to be like a number of other viruses, and it will undergo mutation and selection, so if you use only one antiviral drug, you are going to ultimately select for resistance."


But the use of such a large variety of drug(the cocktail of drugs) on the human body can be lethal because the combined effect is not always positive use of cocktail may cause


  • Toxicity or poisoning in the body
  • Affect the immune system
  • It can affect our major organs like heart, kidney, liver.
  • It may affect our brains.

Can facemask prevent us from coronavirus?


Yes and No, is the answer to this question.
YES, because they use facemask along with all the preventative measures against coronavirus and maintaining a proper diet which can boost your immune system can prevent us from getting an infection of coronavirus. But an only certain type of facemask can prevent us from coronavirus like

N95 respirator mask, if properly fitted, can block large-particle droplets that may contain germs of the corona.
N99 mask, which blocks 99% of particles, but that mask is difficult to wear for long periods of time because it is hard to breathe through it."

These 2 masks are expensive and these are more effective against coronavirus within the time range of 8 hours.
No mask cannot prevent from coronavirus because,
The protection provided by the mask is not *complete* protection.


1. it doesn’t cover your eyes, so you could get infected that way,

2. some masks are better designs than others - some don’t seal very well around the edges,

3. some people don’t fit them properly or other reasons why they don’t fit properly and so the droplets in the air (carrying the virus) get in around the edge,

4. they might serve to give the wearer a false sense of security, so they take more risks,

5. they require the user to wash hands before and after fitting, and there are potentially a higher concentration of droplets with the virus in the mask, so it is crucial to wash hands, especially after taking them off,

6. they might cause irritation and so cause the wearer to touch their face, though it can also work the other way, which prevents the wearer from touching their nose/mouth.



But any way using N95 and N99 face masks can prevent us from coronavirus to a great extent.


According to the several research and analysis scientist and doctors has done more than 80 clinical trials launch to test coronavirus treatments.



Traditional medicine, Ayurveda, homeopathy, stem cell, drugs for AIDS, everything is taken into consideration so that we can have antidote or vaccine against this deadly coronavirus.


Two stem-cell trials have been conducted in China. In one, a team at the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University will infuse 28 people with stem cells derived from menstrual blood, and compare results with those from people who did not receive the infusions. So far, there is minimal evidence indicating that stem cells clear coronavirus infections.
