What is coronavirus?
Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), referred to as "new corona pneumonia", refers to pneumonia caused by new coronavirus infection in 2019.
Since December 2019, some hospitals in Wuhan City, Hubei Province have successively found multiple cases of unexplained pneumonia, which have now been confirmed as acute respiratory infections caused by new coronavirus infection in 2019.
New coronary pneumonia transmission is mainly direct transmission, aerosol transmission and contact transmission.
The clinical manifestations of patients with pneumonitis infected by the new coronavirus are as follows:
Fever, fatigue, dry cough are the main manifestations, and upper respiratory symptoms such as nasal congestion and runny nose are rare. Hypoxia and hypoxia will occur. About half of the patients will have difficulty breathing after one week. Septic shock, difficult to correct metabolic acidosis, and coagulopathy.
It is worth noting that in the course of severe and critically ill patients, there can be moderate to low fever, even without obvious fever. Some patients have mild onset symptoms and no fever. They usually recover after 1 week. Most patients have a good prognosis, and a few patients are critically ill and even die.
