The COVID-19 pandemic is a pandemic derived from the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus type 2) .56 It was first identified in December 2019 in the city of Wuhan, 7 capital of Hubei province, in the People's Republic of China.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognized it as a pandemic on March 11, 2020.9, As of February 2, 2021, more than 104.3 million cases of the disease have been reported in 255 countries and territories in the world. On the other hand, by October 2020, the World Health Organization estimated that at least 10% of the world population has already been infected with this disease (approximately 780 million infected people), due to the large under-registration of cases to world level.1011
The virus is generally transmitted from person to person through tiny droplets of saliva, known as Flügge droplets, which are emitted by talking, sneezing, coughing, or breathing. 121314 It spreads mainly when people are in close contact, but also It can be spread by touching a contaminated surface and then bringing contaminated hands to the face or mucous membranes. Their incubation period is usually five days, but can range from two to fourteen days.1516 The most common symptoms are fever, dry cough, and breathing difficulties.15 Complications may include pneumonia, acute respiratory syndrome, or sepsis. 171819 Despite having numerous vaccines under development, there is still no one or specific antiviral treatment, 13 so currently the only way to address the disease is through symptomatic and supportive therapy.20
Recommended prevention measures include hand washing, coughing, physical distancing between people and the use of masks, as well as self-isolation and follow-up for people suspected of being infected.13 The elderly and Those with conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory diseases, high blood pressure or immunodeficiency have a much higher risk of contracting the disease and of having serious complications, so it is suggested to stay at home as much as possible.21
