Covid 19 Update and vaccine:
The world is plagued by CoVID-19 epidemics. Because WHO and partners work together on response – detecting epidemics, advising on key interventions, providing vital medical supplies to those in need — developing and deploying safe and effective vaccines Are in the race.
Vaccines save millions of lives every year. Vaccines target the viruses and bacteria they target by training and preparing the body’s natural defense – the immune system. If the body later becomes infected with the germs that cause these diseases, the body is immediately ready to eliminate them, and prevent the disease.
There are currently more than 50 Covid 19 vaccine candidates in the tests. The World Health Organization is working with scientists, businesses and the World Health Organization through the ACT Accelerator to accelerate the response to epidemics. Once a safe and effective vaccine is found, COVAX (led by WHO, GAVI and CEPI) will facilitate equal access and distribution of these vaccines to protect people in all countries. People with the highest risk will be given priority. While we work to advance a safe and effective vaccine fairly, we must continue to take the necessary public health measures to suppress transmission and reduce mortality.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a serious disease caused by the acute respiratory syndrome Corona virus 2 (SARS cov-2). The first case was identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. Since then, it has spread around the world, causing an epidemic.
Symptoms of COVID-19 are variable, but often include fever, cough, fatigue, difficulty breathing, and loss of smell and taste. Symptoms begin one to fourteen days after exposure to the virus. About one in five infected people have no symptoms. While most people have mild symptoms, some develop severe respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). ARDS can be used to treat cytokine storms, multiple organ failure, septic shock, and blood clots. Long-term damage to organs (especially the lungs and heart) has been reported. There is concern about a significant number of patients recovering from the acute phase of the disease, but still experience many of its side effects over a period of several months, long known as COVID. ۔ These effects include severe fatigue, memory loss and other cognitive impairments, low-grade fever, muscle weakness, and respiratory distress.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly spread when an infected person has close contact with another person. Droplets and aerosols containing the virus can spread through an infected person’s nose and mouth when they breathe, cough, sneeze, sing, or speak. Other people get infections if they get the virus in their mouth, nose or eyes. The virus can also spread through contaminated surfaces, although it is not thought to be the primary route of transmission.
