The Origin of COVID-19
The researchers proposed bats as the most likely reservoir for SARS-CoV-2, because this virus is very similar to the corona virus in bats. However, there are no documented cases of direct transmission from bats to humans, this shows the possibility of an intermediary involved between bats and humans. In this scenario, the two SARS-CoV-2 parts of the RBD protein spike that bind to the cell and the cleavage site that opens the gap for the virus, will evolve to their present state before entering humans. In this case, the current epidemic may emerge quickly as soon as humans are infected. Therefore, the virus has developed features that make it a pathogen and can spread among humans. Whereas in other scenarios, non-pathogenic versions of the virus jump from the animal host to humans, then evolve into pathogenic conditions in the human population.
How does COVID-19 spread?
Humans can catch COVID-19 from other people who have the virus. This disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth that spread when someone with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These drops land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then contract COVID-19 by touching this object or surface, then touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. Humans can also catch COVID-19 if they inhale drops from someone with COVID-19 who coughs or drops. This is why it is important to stay or keep more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from a sick person. WHO is assessing ongoing research on the ways COVID-19 is spread and will continue to share updated findings.
Symptoms that arise
The initial symptoms of the COVID-19 corona virus felt by patients were fever, cough, runny nose, respiratory problems, sore throat, fatigue, and lethargy. However, some Covid-19 patients only experience mild pain symptoms, and even have no symptoms at all. The majority or 99 percent of patients have a high fever. More than half experienced fatigue and dry cough. About a third of patients also experience muscle pain and difficulty breathing. Based on the results of research in Wuhan, following the development of the emergence of symptoms of Covid-19 pain that appear from day to day when a corona virus infection has occurred.
Day 1: The patient has a fever. Some of them also experience fatigue, muscle aches, and dry cough. Meanwhile, a small percentage of others experience diarrhea or nausea one or two days before.
Day 5: Patients can experience difficulty breathing, especially if they are elderly or have previous health problems.
Day 7: On the seventh day, the above symptoms appear and the average patient has not been hospitalized
Day 8: At this point, patients with severe cases (15 percent) experience acute respiratory distress syndrome, or when fluid builds up in the lungs. This incident is often fatal.
Day 10: If the patient has worsening symptoms, this is the time when Covid-19's disease makes the patient have to be treated in the ICU. Patients who experience this condition are more likely to have worse abdominal pain and loss of appetite than those in mild cases. In this phase, the mortality rate is found to be only around 2 percent.
Day 17: On average, patients who recover can be discharged from the hospital after 14-18 days of treatment. The symptoms of covid-19 can be similar to pneumonia. However, radiologists at Thomas Jefferson University Paras Lakhani say that the condition of patients infected with Covid-19 can be worse over time.
Prevention that we can do
Physical Distancing is expected to help reduce the spread of the corona virus. Because with physical distancing, reducing the encounter with each other can prevent touches that can be the beginning of the spread of the corona virus. To prevent the spread of corona virus, implementing healthy and clean living behavior is the main key. In addition, immunity or immunity must also always be maintained. Here are ways to prevent the spread of corona virus:
- Try to wash your hands after touching an object or dirty surface
- Avoid touching the face with dirty hands
- Avoid or keep a safe distance from people who are sick
- Avoid areas that are contaminated by the corona virus
- Clean objects or surfaces that are frequently touched
- When coughing or sneezing, always cover your mouth with a tissue or hand
- Immediately check yourself if you experience symptoms of the corona virus
- Avoid traveling abroad
JHS System fully supports the prevention of the spread of Covid19
In preventing the development of the Covid 19 virus, following the efforts made in the company to anticipate that every employee is not affected by the virus, including:
1. Spraying Disinfectant in every room and open land that is often passed by employees
2. Measurement of the body temperature of each employee
3. Provision of hand washing facilities in several places
4. Sterilization Room
