COVID-19 is a disease that is caused by a new strain of Coronavirus. ‘CO’ stands for the corona, ‘VI’ for the virus and ‘D’ for the disease. The virus is usually transmitted through direct contact with the respiratory droplets of an infected individual that is generated through his coughing and sneezing. Individuals can also be infected by touching the surfaces that are already contaminated with the virus and after that touching their eyes, nose, and mouth. The COVID-19 virus usually survives on contaminated surfaces for several hours, but the simple disinfectants can kill it. Cough, fever, and shortness of breath are some of its symptoms. In more serious cases, the infection can cause pneumonia or unbearable breathing difficulties. More rarely, the disease can also be fatal. Its symptoms are similar to influenza or the common cold, which are many times common than COVID-19. There is no vaccine available for the treatment of COVID-19. But many of its symptoms can be treated by getting early treatment from a doctor as it can make the disease less dangerous.
