In this blog, I will tell you about some latest updates about coronavirus or COVID-19. We will also discuss some new symptoms of the virus, about the necessity of masks, till when the vaccines will be prepared and many more. So, let us get started…..
NEW SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS
We know that the symptoms of coronavirus are-
Fever, tiredness, dry cough, aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, and diarrhoea.
But, new symptoms of the virus has been identified, these are-
Loss of smell, loss of taste, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache and sore throat.
SOURCES OF THE INFORMATION-
MASKS ARE NECESSARY NOW
Now, masks are necessary as there is a very high chance that if you go out and come back home, yo ou may get the virus as who knows that who has the virus. And now the government of some states and countries has made masks necessary for the people who go out if they do not follow it, they have to pay penalty or they can be jailed. So, we all must wear a mask when we go out to be protected. Like in Germany where masks are compulsory. And in India-U.P, Delhi, Maharastra, Chandigarh and Odisha, the government has made masks compulsory.
SOURCES OF THE INFORMATION-
NUMBERS ARE INCREASED NOW
Now, the number of patients of COVID-19 is increased by thousands of cases. However, India has fewer no. of cases as compared to other countries, like the USA, Italy, Spain, the UK, France, Germany, etc.
(Based as per data at 3:17 PM IST, 1/5/2020)
Total Corona patients in the world- 3,320,613
THE USA- 1,095,304
THE UK- 171,253
HOW MUCH TIME TO PREPARE COVID-19 VACCINE?
It is estimated by the scientists that it will take years for the scientists to develop the vaccine. So, till that time we must follow social and physical distancing.
IS PLASMA THERAPY EFFECTIVE IN KILLING CORONAVIRUS IN SOMEONE’S BODY?
WHAT IS PLASMA?
Plasma is the clear, straw-coloured liquid portion of blood that remains after red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and other cellular components are removed. It is the single largest component of human blood, comprising about 55 per cent, and contains water, salts, enzymes, antibodies and other proteins.https://www.donatingplasma.org/donation/what-is-plasma
Before proceeding further, let us discuss what is plasma therapy. In this therapy, the plasma of a healthy person is taken and then it is injected to a serious patient of COVID-19. And the antibodies present in the plasma fight with the virus.
It is tested in Delhi, and they have received a positive response to the therapy. But still, no specific study that this therapy is effective. In the case of dengue, the convalescent serum was found to make patients even worse. This is because as it led to virus replicate. So, we should not be so much happy as it is not sure that this therapy can save COVID-19 patients’ life. But, I also must say that plasma therapy is or first and last hope as it can take years to make the vaccine.
SO, AT THE END I WOULD SAY THAT WE CAN DEFEAT CORONA!! ALL JUST WE NEED TO DO IS TO STAY SAFE AT HOME AND BREAK THE CHAIN!! I HOPE THAT VERY SOON VACCINES WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR THE VIRUS AND PLASMA THERAPY WORKS. AND WE WILL DEFINITELY WIN THE FIGHT IF WE STAY AT HOME AND FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES BY THE GOVERNMENT.
