Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an acute infectious disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
THE INCUBATION PHASE & SYMPTOMS
COVID-19 signs and symptoms may appear any time from 2 – 14 days after exposure to the virus. The incubation period is infectious. Asymptomatic carriers may also be sources of infection. Respiratory droplets and contact are the main routes of transmission. The initial symptoms of the patients are fever, fatigue, cough, and gradually developed dyspnoea and other serious manifestations. Most of the patients have good prognosis, but some of the severe cases may have acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock, or even death. At present, there is no specific treatment for the disease.
