Coronavirus is a type of virus that can infect both animals and humans.  A new strain of the coronavirus emerged in the later part of 2019 in Wuhan, China.  Since this particular strain of the coronavirus had not been experienced previously in the human population, it spread rapidly and has caused the illness COVID-19.  There is still much to learn about this new (“novel”) coronavirus and information is changing constantly.   Please refer to the CDC website for the latest recommendations/information about this infection. 

What is COVID-19?

The coronavirus that is responsible for COVID-19 belongs to a class of betacoronaviruses that caused the outbreak of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) in 2003.  SARS resulted in 8096 cases worldwide with 774 deaths (9.6% mortality).  COVID 19 is also in the same class of betacoronaviruses as MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) which appeared in 2012.  There have been 2494 laboratory identified cases of MERS with 858 deaths (34.4% mortality).  In comparison, since the end of 2019 (just 5 months as of April 2020), Coronavirus SARS-CoV 2 has been identified in 2,621,748 people worldwide with 183,030 deaths (6.9% mortality). It can be seen that the prevalence of this current coronavirus is much more widespread than the previous SARS and MERS outbreaks. That is why SOCIAL DISTANCING IS SO IMPORTANT.  The actual death rate of COVID-19 will be affected as more testing becomes available.  

When a person is exposed to the novel coronavirus, they may contract COVID-19.  The incubation (time from exposure to the virus to when symptoms appear) is thought to occur within 14 days with most cases occurring 4-5 days after exposure.

Symptoms of Coronavirus

The COVID-19 infection shares many similar symptoms to the flu that we experience every year.  The severity of the COVID infection can be affected by things such as a patient’s age and underlying medical illnesses (high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic lung disease, cancer, chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, obesity).  It is felt that some people may experience an “asymptomatic” (ie without symptoms) infection where others develop the typical fever, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, or headache.  If you develop any of these symptoms it may indicate that you have contracted COVID-19, and may want to come in for an evaluation..  More advanced infection can result in findings such as increasing shortness of breath, pneumonia and confusion.  If you develop these more serious symptoms, it is advised that you seek emergent medical care.
