COVID-19: THE DISEASE

What are the symptoms?

Is there a chance you have come into contact with the COVID-19 virus recently? If so, there is a chance you may have contracted the virus. It is entirely possible to contract the virus and remain an asymptomatic carrier, but if you are symptomatic, the signs can appear anywhere from 2 to 14 days after the first exposure to the virus. 

  • Coughing

  • Fever

  • Chills

  • Shivering/Shaking

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Sore throat

  • Headaches

  • Muscle pains

  • Possible loss of taste & smell

  • Possible skin rashes, a phenomenon commonly known as "COVID toes"

If you find yourself experiencing any of these symptoms, immediately quarantine yourself and contact your healthcare provider for further advice & assistance. 

Are you at risk?

In terms of the COVID-19 virus, an at risk individual is classified as a person who is more likely to experience severe illness should they contract COVID-19. There are various conditions that may cause someone to be categorized as at risk, including...

  • Age 65+

  • Immunocompromisation

  • Chronic lung disease (COPD)

  • HIV/AIDS

  • Severe obesity

  • Diabetes

  • Severe liver disease

  • Severe asthma

Is there a cure?

As of right now, there is no official cure or vaccine available to treat COVID-19, which plays a large part in how deadly it can be. There are many companies working 24/7 right now on developing a vaccine to treat COVID-19, but there are no confirmed successes yet. While there is no vaccine, most healthy individuals have immune systems strong enough to fight off the virus, leading to eventual recovery. At-risk individuals are the ones who are more likely to experience severe illness.
