Covid-19, Symptoms, Treatment and Importance of Clinical Studies.
SARS-CoV-2, started in late 2019, in the city of Wuhan in China, with a report of unknown pneumonia, is a virus that infects humans. Its transmission occurs through respiratory particles when coughing or sneezing.
Its symptoms are flu-like and can lead to acute respiratory distress, pneumonia, kidney failure or death. In addition, infected persons show common signs such as fever, cough and shortness of breath. Hospitalized patients show signs such as fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, myalgia, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, weakness and nasal mucus.
Currently, there is no specific treatment for coronavirus. Generally, containment and prevention measures are the safest, such as hand washing, use of masks, avoiding contact with contaminated persons and staying at home when infected. However, in severe clinical cases, specialized medical treatment is necessary.
Therefore, the importance of clinical trials on Covid-19 are fundamental to establish an effective therapy against the virus, seeking alternatives to patients suffering from this disease and its sequelae for the rest of their lives.
