What you'll learn
With the growing threat of COVID-19 hitting the world, the enthusiasm of gaining awareness on this pandemic has become routine among the normal individual. The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked an unprecedented wave of research, data sharing and open science as the scientific world seeks to understand the disease, track its spread and analyze the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. The WHO estimates an average mortality rate of 3.4%, which is around 100 times higher than flu — but do note that average is across age brackets. Current evidence suggests that the fatality rate from Covid-19 ranges from 9% to 19% for older individuals, as well as for people with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer and those who are immunocompromised. Even if you are not at high risk yourself, we still all have a public health obligation to take interventions that will prevent spread and overwhelm the health care system.This can only be possible if we have a thorough and exhaustive knowledge on COVID 19 which can help us to implement it in our day to day life. As COVID is a respiratory infection and can spread from animals to humans and humans to humans, it has progressively become a pandemic in a short period which awakens us to build up knowledge to how to break the chain of COVID 19.
We’re in a time of massive upheaval. There are so many things outside our control, including how long the pandemic lasts, how other people behave, and what’s going to happen in our communities, personal and professional issues . That’s a tough thing to accept, and so many of us respond by endlessly searching the Internet for answers and thinking over all the different scenarios that might happen.
