Science into the unknown is always difficult and the science behind a new virus is not DifficultCan be likened to a minefield. The scientists behind keeping us safe from COVID-19 are trying to guide the entire human species through this minefield. It is a difficult task filled with unknown symptoms, causes and victims. The scientist and doctors at the World Health Organization are doing their best to come up with protocols and steps to keep us safe and healthy. This same organization trying to organize the world to come up with a viable cure for a vaccine. With so many countries around the world and governments, it becomes another minefield for this organization to navigate while the poll resources and minds together to save our species.
First, what are the symptoms of COVID-19? What was the first thought to be a Respiratory virus has been seen to attack every organ in the human body? Something had fell victim to this virus weakened recovered has left behind a trail weekend organs and immune systems. Still unknown to us or at least to the doctors who are trying to save us can we get COVID-19 a second time? If we look at influenza or the flu once you get it forA particular season it won’t recur a second time during that season, In fact, you might actually be safe from getting the flu virus for the next few years. This cannot be said for COVID-19. In JapanThey thinkBet some people may have gotten it for the second time again this is still an unknown and has not truly been proved. The WHO Has worked on best practices to keep us safe.
Protocols and practices to keep us safe have been studied. We have been told to keep our distance from each other. We’ve had to limit our contacts to only the people that we physically lived with in the same house. We’ve had to sacrifice birthday, parties, weddings, graduations you get the idea. Summer months are coming for a large chunk of the world and will be asked not to travel on our summer vacations. We’re being told that is okay to go outside but we have to wear a mask. The mask is there to protect our droplets from coming in contact with other people. Those droplets could contain the infectious virus that we are trying to avoid. With all this were being told that someone could be infectious and not have symptoms.
Maria Van Kerkhove stated that there are few studies on the asymptomatic person could be infectious with Covid19. In a town hall-style interview. Dr Van KerkhoveTried to explain the difference between having symptoms not having symptoms and showing signs that the diseases incubating. Up to now using our flu model, we can say that if someone feels sick they are contagious. COVID-19 maybe different and you may not be showing signs of the virus and still be infectious.
Listen to the what Drs Van Kerkhove and Ryan have to say.
