COVID-19 and its effects
COVID-19 is a disease caused by a novel strain of coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. It is related to the virus that causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), but with a lower fatality rate than SARS.
The novel strain of coronavirus was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province China, when Chinese authorities reported rising pneumonia cases with an unknown cause to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets, COVID-19 spreads within six feet of someone who is contagious and comes into contact with the droplets. Touching a contaminated surface or object and touching your own mouth, nose, and eyes makes him/her susceptible to the disease.
Symptoms of COVID-19 appear within two to 14 days after exposure, with strong similarities with flu symptoms. These symptoms are fever, cough, runny nose, and breathing difficulty. These signs may not appear, making contagious people unaware of their condition and may boost the spread of the virus unknowingly.
As of writing, more than 237,000 total COVID-19 cases nationwide were tallied by the Department of Health (DOH).
