What are the symptoms?
Like the typical flu, common symptoms include coughing, fever, shortness of breath, and respiratory symptoms. You might also have aches, sore throat, runny nose, and nasal congestion.
Those with high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic lung disease, diabetes, pregnant women, and others may experience more severe illness and are at a higher risk of infection.
How is COVID-19 spread?
Experts are studying the virus continually to determine how it is spread. There a few modes of transmission suggested based on those diagnosed with the newly detected COVID-19. Transmission can happen person-to-person via respiratory droplets through sneezing, coughing and close contact such as shaking hands. The virus can also be spread by contact with objects or surfaces that have the virus on it, followed by touching of one’s nose, mouth, and eyes.
Should I be worried?
News outlets everywhere have been reporting on the novel coronavirus infection and its effects. This consistent reporting can increase the level of anxiety about the situation. While the immediate health risk is still low for the general American public, being informed is vital for everyone
