To be precisewhat is the knowledge about viruses
The virus discovered by Chinese researchers in early January is currently called SARS-CoV-2 because it is similar to the virus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The disease caused by this new virus is titled COVID-19.
Coronavirus can be an important virus family, most of which are harmless to humans. There are four known ways to cause a cold, although the other two may cause severe lung bacterial infections (SARS and MERS) and are related to COVID-19.
Like all viruses, SARS-CoV-2 hopes the cells of organisms to multiply. The virus also appears to be concentrated on cells in the lungs, and may also be concentrated on other cells in the respiratory system. Cells contaminated by the virus will produce more virus particles, which may then be spread to other people through coughing and other means.
msf hong kong started an operation soon after the COVID-19 outbreak started in the city in late January.
How dangerous is COVID-19?
Our understanding of viruses and diseases is still evolving. Many people who are contaminated by the virus will not be very sick. It is really achievable that even many people will not feel discomfort.
The latest estimate is that only 82% of infected people will only suffer from mild illness. 15% of people will get reasonable signs, and a few people may be seriously ill.
This disease seems to be more dangerous for the elderly or people with other infections or diseases, which is usually the case with infectious diseases. More than 80% of people who die of COVID-19 are over 60 years old. 75% of people have experienced basic professional medical diseases.
Four cases were passed by msf hong kong police, but no one in the SAR was known to have sent money to the scammers. An investigation is now being run from Western District police station.
The death rate in Wuhan (currently 4 pm) is higher than in other parts of China (2.1%). Outside of China, it even dropped by 0.2%. It is not entirely clear why the mortality rate varies from location to location. But with the development of popularity, these numbers can change.
How contagious is the disease?
An infected person can spread the virus by coughing.
