What it’s like to be infected with COVID-19?
To start off, the coronaviruses are a huge family of RNA viruses that could cause illnesses ranging from a mild fever, flu or a sore throat to complicated diseases such as Middle-eastern respiratory syndrome (MERS), South Asian Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the most recent of them all, the COVID-19 disease. As for now, we will only focus on the novel corona virus and its symptoms that you should worry about. How will it spread and what symptoms could I possibly get? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the virus spreads from person-to-person when in close contact or through respiratory droplets from a cough or a sneeze of the infected person.
