ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause respiratory illnesses ranging from the common cold to fatal pneumonia. Coronaviruses, so-named because protein spikes on the surface of the virus resemble the sun’s corona, are common. Most cause respiratory, gastrointestinal, liver, and neurologic diseases in animals.
HUMAN CORONAVIRUS INFECTION (HCoV)
4 of the 7 viruses cause mild and self-limiting upper respiratory tract infections, such as the common cold, but they can cause severe lower respiratory tract infections, including pneumonia, in infants, older people, and people whose immune systems are not working well. These HCoV infections show a seasonal pattern with most cases occurring in the winter months in temperate climate countries.
3 of the 7 HCoV (SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, and SARS-CoV2) have caused major outbreaks of deadly pneumonia in the 21st century. (By Matthew E. Levison, MD, Adjunct Professor of Medicine, Drexel University College of Medicine)
THE CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19)
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
