Besurence Covid-19 Antigen
What is Covid-19?
Coronavirus disease („Covid-19“) is an infectious disease caused by the newly detected coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 („Covid-19“).
People are generally susceptible. Most patients infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems („risk groups“) like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease or cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
The virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Frequently occuring symptoms include:
⦁ Dry cough
Less frequently occuring symptoms are diarrhea, cold symtpoms or loss of taste and smell.
Based on current information, the incubation time is mostly between 3 and 7 days.
