What is the difference between colds, flu and corona?
Kovid disease, which has spread to many countries, including Iran, since the beginning of this year has symptoms similar to the common cold or the flu. Does Corona have a distinctive feature?
On Wednesday, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry’s Public Relations Ministry announced the launch of the new Corona virus .
Since then, the total number of cases has risen to 9 people and 5 deaths; thus, Iran has recorded the highest mortality rate from the new corona virus after China .
The Minister of Health says that Kovid was report to have die in the country at the same time as two infecting people.
According to the WHO protocols, if there were cases of influenza and influenza in a country that were people who had not come from infect areas or had no contact with the person coming from those areas, they would not be suspected of coronary disease and we are also We have acted. But unfortunately about two days ago two cases were referred to one of Qom’s hospitals and were severely in a state of respiratory failure and tests of these patients showed bilateral pneumonia, which our colleagues found was consistent with the clinical form of the two patients did not have. Immediate tests were carried out, but the rate of disease progression was such that the two were unfortunately lost very quickly; the test results were positive, and immediately our colleagues focuse on Qom and send numerous teams to conduct extensive investigations.
He added: “Studies have shown that these people have not traveled abroad. Therefore, it must be said that the focal point of contamination has developed in the country. ”
Given the climate of fear in this country, many people are now coming to hospitals for accurate diagnosis of their disease, but this does not prevent them from receiving corona testing or hospitalization; Vakili , a nurse at Sharia Hospital Razavi tells that in such situations, most people in the high-risk group will be test
In this regard, Dr. Kianoush Jahanpour, Head of the Center The Ministry of Public Relations also said :
Nowhere in the world is it the case that if someone feels that they have coronavirus, they should be immediately examined by a specialist, but if the disease has flu-like symptoms and has a suspicious history, by the relevant health center in the province. And the city received a laboratory sample and sent it to the reference laboratories.
The reference laboratory sends a report to the Ministry of Health or the relevant University of Medical Sciences,
so people are refer to the clinic, office, hospital, etc.
and self-report that they are willing to perform the test even though they themselves pay the price. .
Attorneys at the hospital referring patients with suspect coronavirus to the hospital says they were placed in isolation rooms (without quarantine)
until their test results (which, according to the health minister, were three-stage),
and if the answer was positive, They are transfer to designate hospitals throughout Tehran and other cities.
The difference between corona and flu is that in the common cold and cold,
the patient will recover with the drug within a few days.
Sick people may have symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath and other flu-like symptoms, Vakili said. What distinguishes these three diseases is that in the flu and the common cold, the patient improves with the use of the drug within a few days, but apparently, as with Covidus, the drug has not had any effect on it, but the disease over time. , Instead of getting worse, gets worse. In the patient’s lung image, it is clear that the lung is being destroyed, whereas in the lung image of the patient with influenza, with the administration of antibiotics and analgesics, the lung is getting better every day, which has a bad effect on the patient with coronary disease.
The important thing about this disease is personal care;
many people do not know that they have the virus
and may transmit the virus to others during the course of the illness.
Lawyer said frequent hand washing, wearing a mask, keeping track of people with symptoms,
avoiding being in crowded environments are among the things to consider. He also said the death rate of the virus is 5 percent.
It is clear that many people may get it and their illness is a bit more severe than the flu. But people are recovering from it – as we have heard from many these days who have been having a cold for a while and are not responding to medication and their coughing is increasing; it is likely to be corona . The reason for their improvement is the strong immune system that prevents death. Mortality is seen in people who have immune deficiencies, transplanted organs, cancer , diabetes, or have a history of more severe illnesses. Otherwise it is quite natural for many people to get the virus and experience only the flu or cold.
The new corona virus, compared to the flu,
is more likely to cause dry cough, shortness of breath or lung infection.
Not all patients show the same symptoms, but the same is true for patients with Covidian,
fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Viral symptoms in the upper respiratory tract are high and prolonged fever; therefore, high sneezing,
runny nose and sore throat, common symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections, are symptoms of a common cold or flu.
Since the new corona virus primarily affects the lower respiratory tract (s),
it is more likely to cause dry cough, shortness of breath or lung infection.
Lawyer affirms that, given the emergence of a cure for the new coronavirus,
only auxiliary care is providing to patients at the hospital.
He points out that exposure to infected secretions and droplets caused by the cough and sneezing of the infected person is a transmissible disease, and even if we are within a meter of the person but have no contact with him, the disease does not transmit.
The worst case is that a person with the Covirus 7 virus,
coughs or sneezes, puts his hand in front of his mouth and then strikes other objects. The virus survives in the environment for longer than 6 hours while on the hand it lasts for 6 hours.
The Ministry of Health announced yesterday that 5 people are suspected of having the coronavirus, and the results of the test have not yet been determined.
He also said sufficiently about the concerns about the lack of masks:
” From today on, the mask distribution network is changing all over the country; Health and medical centers will be distribute nationwide. 4 million masks are distributed today. “
This came after the number of mask purchases from pharmacies intensified two days ago
and hygiene items such as face masks,
gloves and hand sanitizing gel were selling at high volumes. DigiKala unveiled its list of masks yesterday after announcing the high sales of masks on its platform. The Wall site also prevented sellers from continuing to sell masks after high-priced masks were set by retailers.
