The corona virus continues to spread around the world, and the number of confirmed cases to date is close to 5 million and more than 323,000 deaths. If you look at Pakistan, while the number of people affected by Corona was more than 47,000, more than 1000 people died from this outbreak.

According to researchers, 80% of people worldwide affected by Corona have only mild symptoms, and those with these symptoms are in the minority.

The question is: how can you define it?

What are the symptoms of Code-19?

The virus affects the lungs, and the two main symptoms are fever and persistent dry cough.

According to the British National Institutes of Health, dry cough means sore throat that does not produce mucus.

Persistent cough means you have been coughing for about an hour or you have had at least three cough attacks in a 24-hour period, so your cough is longer than usual.

It can also cause shortness of breath, often called chest tightness, difficulty breathing, or choking.

If your body temperature is above 37.8 degrees Celsius or 98.6 degrees Celsius, you will have a fever. Fever can cause your body to warm up, catching a cold or chills.

While sore throat, headache and diarrhea symptoms are also found in the victims, some patients complain about the taste and smell without deterioration.

It usually takes five days for symptoms to appear in a patient, but in some people they appear late.

According to the World Health Organization, the time from infection to the onset of symptoms is 14 days, but some researchers say it may be up to 24 days.

According to a new study published in the British Medical Journal, 78% of people infected with COD-19 had no obvious symptoms, that is, they were medically asymptomatic.

The results of this study are consistent with the results of a study conducted in this Italian village, which has become the main center of this epidemic in Corona. In 50-75% of patients there were no symptoms, but it should have been the main reason for its spread.

According to another study in Iceland, 50% of those confirmed to be code-19 had no symptoms.

Meanwhile, according to the results of the World Health Organization's review of 56,000 patients:

Eighty percent had mild symptoms such as fever and cough, and some had pneumonia.

Severe symptoms were found in 14%, and these patients had severe difficulty breathing.

06% of patients were critical due to the failure of the lungs and other vital organs and the risk of death.

Most people infected with the corona virus will recover after taking painkillers such as rest and paracetamol.

If you have a fever, cough, or trouble breathing, it may be due to a respiratory infection or something else.

When should I go to the hospital?

In Code-19, the main reason people have to go to the hospital is difficulty breathing.

Doctors at the hospital will examine your lungs to see how impressed they are. Most patients are transferred to the intensive care unit specially designed for severe illness.

Oxygen is given to patients with coronavirus via a face mask or nasal tube.

Extremely sick patients are transferred to the ventilator and the device injects more oxygen into their lungs through a tube inserted through a hole in the mouth, nose, or throat.

How fatal is the corona virus?

According to a study published in the medical journal Lancet, the mortality fee from code-19 was initially one to two percent, but now 0.66 percent.

This is much more than the number of people who died from the common flu. Flu death rate is 0.01% worldwide

However, it is currently not possible to estimate the actual death rate from Corona, since most of his patients are not diagnosed.
