The Coronavirus symptoms can be mild or severe. Several symptoms to look out for include:
- Dry coughing
- Excessive fatigue
- Muscle aches and chills
- Runny nose or excessive congestion
- Vomiting and diarrhea
- High fever
If you’ve been having these symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately to prevent further complications to your health. Typically, the virus can lead to pneumonia and other respiratory illness that may result in death.
Shots & Vaccinations
Many variations have been created of the coronavirus vaccine, due to the viruses elusive and consistently changing nature. Since the virus is highly contagious and results in respiratory infections that weaken the lungs, it may result in additional infections, further compromising your health.
It’s for this reason that vaccinations are so important. The vaccine contains “dead viruses” which coax the immune system into developing the necessary antibodies to combat that particular strain. This is the best preventative measure, as it prepares the body for incoming viruses.
Unfortunately, a vaccine is not providing 100% protection, so other preventative measures must be taken to prevent you from being infected.
While vaccinations are ideal, there are some steps you can take on your own to prevent yourself from contracting the virus.
- Wear a protective face mask. The best ones are N95 masks.
- Don’t go to crowded areas
- Wash your hands and face as much as possible
- Social distancing
