About Coronavirus and Means of Battling the Disease
Back in the beginning of 2020, following the December 2019 outbreak in China, the World Health Organization has officially acknowledged SARS-CoV-2 as a new kind of coronavirus. The virus outbreak had swiftly spread around the globe afterwards and is a current threat to the population worldwide.
COVID-19 represents a sickness resulted from SARS-CoV-2, which can cause an infection inside the respiratory tract. This type of virus generally affects upper respiratory tract (i.e., nose, sinuses, throat) as well as lower respiratory tract (i.e., lungs, windpipe). It spreads in a similar manner to other types of coronaviruses, commonly via person-to-person contact. The severity of this infection generally ranges from mild to deadly.
