Studies are ongoing regarding the prevalence of such cases.
Many infected with COVID-19 have only mild symptoms of SARS. About it on Friday, May 22, informs Public Health Center of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine on Facebook page.
As noted this is especially characteristic of the early stages of the disease.
“A new coronavirus can be infected from a person who has only a slight cough, but otherwise does not feel sick,” the report said.
The main mechanism of transmission of a new coronavirus infection is drip, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). That is, through drops released from the respiratory tract of an infected person.
“It is now known that there is a possibility of infection with COVID-19 from a person with an asymptomatic course of the disease,” the report says.
Thus, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that several studies have documented the SARS-CoV-2 infection of people who have never had SARS symptoms: cough, runny nose, fever, shortness of breath.
The exact level of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA, which poses a risk of transmission, is not yet clear. It is believed that the risk of transmission is highest in people with severe symptoms, as the outbreak is the largest at the time of onset of symptoms and decreases over the next days. However, the proportion of SARS-CoV-2 transmission through asymptomatic infection compared with symptomatic infection has not yet been studied.
To reduce the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 or spreading it further,:
- wash your hands as often as possible with warm water and soap for 20-40 seconds or treat them with a disinfector with an alcohol content of at least 60%;
- in crowded places, observe a distance with others not less than a meter;
- avoid crowded places;
- if possible, do not touch the eyes, nose and mouth with your hands;
- observe the rules of respiratory hygiene: cough and sneeze into a disposable napkin, which then must be immediately thrown away or, if not, into the fold of the elbow;
- self-insulate in case of respiratory symptoms. You also need to isolate yourself from those with whom you live as much as possible. Especially if you live with elderly people;
- consult a family doctor in case of fever, cough, shortness of breath.
“Thus, compliance with the rules of hygiene and physical distance – still remain effective ways to protect yourself and prevent the spread of COVID-19,” the Ministry of Health of Ukraine summed up.
Recall that March 3 in Ukraine recorded the first case of infection with coronavirus COVID-19.
On the morning of May 22, the number of coronavirus infected in Ukraine rose to 20,148 people....
