COVID-19 Pandemic: How Long Does Coronavirus Live In The Human Body

We understand that your inbox is probably full of emails similar to this, but we felt it was important to let you know about the crucial steps taken to ensure our daily visitors’ continued safety throughout the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, and reassure you there is no change to your service. Some persons has being wondering how long Coronavirus stays in the human body before manifestation. In general, the virus leaves the body after around 10 days but there have been cases when it was detected for three weeks a study has revealed.

The effects of coronavirus can different from person to person, the amount of time it takes to leave the body can vary too along with the likelihood of you contracting the virus. Spain’s ministry for health have published a study about the effects of coronavirus, with a focus on identifying the most vulnerable in society. The first insight is that men are slightly more likely (52%) to get the virus with 51 being the age group most affected.

Another conclusion from the study, with data taken mostly from China where the virus started, is that the peak of the disease comes after the fifth or sixth day and the human body needs around 10 days to get rid of the organism. They have, however, detected cases where the body needed 21 days to get rid of symptoms. With the genome still present in the body during this time this explains the “high transmission rate of the disease” and the exponential growth we have seen in cases.

About:

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.

HOW IT SPREADS:

Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.

Protective Measures Against The New Coronavirus Pandemic:

Wash your hands frequently: Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing: Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth: Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene: Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately. Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early: Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority. National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider: Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.

Transmission, Symptoms And Recovery Time:

However, study says transmission of the virus can start to happen one or two days before symptoms start to appear. That’s why people who are asymptotic are unaware that they have it but are also passing it on prior to suffering symptoms and it’s one of the main reasons why the state of alarm has been put in place in Spain to keep people in their homes. The estimated recovery time is two weeks for light cases and between three and six weeks for more serious ones.

People who think they aren’t sick might be more likely to go outside and mingle with others thus exasperating the spread. These asymptotic cases tend to be higher in children who are the least vulnerable to developing sickness from the virus with a mortality rate of practically zero. The symptoms include fever (88% of cases), followed by a dry cough (68% of cases) and followed by fatigue and general weakness of the body (38%) and coughing up phlegm (33%). Symptoms such as vomiting, nasal congestion and diarrhea are very rare but potential symptom.

In these difficult times it’s always important to look out for each other and lend a helping hand where we can. we wish you and your family good health as we navigate the road ahead.
