COVID-19: debunking popular myths about the disease
What is the treatment for people who have developed symptoms of COVID-19 and why no one talks about treatment? "Voice of America" debunking myths and citing facts known about the coronavirus today.
Question: If there are all the signs of COVID-19 (dry cough, headache, etc.), but there is no fever, then this is just a SARS?
Answer: To determine if you have a coronavirus or not, only special testing will help you. In more than 80%, the symptoms of coronavirus disease are similar to those of ordinary flu and SARS - fever, cough, muscle pain, headache.
However, in more than 80% of cases, patients with coronavirus either have no symptoms at all or show symptoms of mild general malaise. Despite this, people with an asymptomatic course of the disease can transmit the virus to other people whose coronavirus will develop into severe forms, even death.
Why COVID-19 kills some and passes asymptomatically in others, doctors still do not know for sure. That is why doctors around the world recommend that people maintain a social distance in order to interrupt the spread of this insidious virus.
Question: Will ginger, lemon and honey help protect against coronavirus?
Answer: Doctors still do not know products that can protect a person from COVID-19. Ginger, lemon, honey, as well as a number of other products, perfectly support the immune system as a whole, however, at the moment there is no evidence obtained in clinical trials that these products will protect you from coronavirus.
Question: Will I get coronavirus if I eat food that a sick person sneezed on?
Answer: Most likely no. Basically, coronavirus is transmitted when drops of a sick person’s secretions get on the mucous membranes of a healthy person. According to experts, once in the human gastrointestinal tract, the coronavirus will almost certainly die due to the high concentration of acids in that environment.
Question: How are sick people treated? Why is nobody talking about this anywhere?
Answer: To date, there are no effective drugs recommended for the prevention or treatment of a new coronavirus. This is one of the main reasons why it poses such a danger to humanity. However, doctors at health facilities give COVID-19 patients medications based on the patient’s specific symptoms and clinical condition.
In addition, it has recently become known that doctors in a New York hospital will, as an experimental therapy, transfuse the plasma of recovered people with patients with moderate forms of the disease.
The development of clinically proven drugs and vaccines for the new coronavirus is actively underway in several countries around the world.
