This virus can also attack people with strong immune systems, such as athletes.
Maybe you’ve heard that coronavirus (COVID-19) by itself isn’t that deadly. But if it comes with a viral load At that point it could be pretty serious.. which means If only one person spreads the virus to you Perhaps if you have never had a medical complication before and you have a strong immune system. You’ll get over it like you’ve got a cold.
On the other hand, if the virus is spread to you by another person. Even if you have a strong immune system It can cause pneumonia that is quite severe and complicated and can be life-threatening. This is why it is so important for people to respect confinement in their homes. Because only in this way will the virus be weakened and Remove it if the person stops being infected..
Coronavirus is very dangerous not only for the elderly.
You may have heard that this virus can be deadly for elderly people or people with weakened immune systems. But in reality This virus can also attack people with strong immune systems, such as athletes. Viral load has a lot to do with this case..
More serious cases can also occur in people. with high blood pressure, diabetes, or coronary artery diseaseA recent study in ‘The New England Journal of Medicine’ found that 73.3% of those who died had some type of additional disease or some type of comorbidity. Although in reality This coronavirus can be deadly without necessarily being linked to other diseases. But experts say what CORONAVORUS often does is aggravate existing diseases.
A disease that makes people more vulnerable to coronavirus (COVID-19).
Below we tell you about some diseases that make people more vulnerable to coronavirus infection. According to a study published in the magazine “JAMA”:
- high blood pressure
- Coronary heart disease
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
Procedures for dealing with infected cases according to the Ministry There is a case form under investigation. The doctor must provide a list of risk factors and concomitant diseases. And if there are any additional diseases or not? such as liver, kidney, or immune system problems..
What does WHO say?
WHO says that in order to overcome this epidemic The entire population must be tested to see who is infected and who is not. Anyone with a mild infection must be isolated rather than sent home. Because only in this way can the virus be stopped instead of spreading further..
Why did it happen?
We are still getting to know the virus. So it’s still too early to know how it works. But all the precautions are taken are just a little to prevent the spread. It became a bigger disaster than it is today..
The virus causes an abnormal response in the body that can be serious because the pathogenic mechanism is not well understood.. Although there are no definitive studies as to why this happens. But it can be compared to other similar viruses, such as influenza:
- in influenza The virus causes inflammation that affects the arteries or heart. and may cause a heart attack It can also cause drowning.
- Regarding diabetes The flu weakens the immune system. And people with type 2 diabetes are three times as likely to be hospitalized for the flu.
High blood pressure is usually not a risk factor for other infections. Therefore, it remains unclear why coronavirus cases pose a significant risk.More studies are needed in this area to understand why high blood pressure is also a risk factor.
Deaths in coronavirus
Another issue related to the death of the novel coronavirus is sepsis, or bilateral pneumonia.It also happens that people affected by this virus succumb to a disproportionate protective response that their immune system triggers and leads to multiple organ failure.
