When infected, COVID-19 patients do not instantly feel the symptoms

The Coronavirus Pandemic is increasingly worrying. This virus spreads so fast, for example the United States has found more than 200 thousand cases as of April 2 yesterday.

This rapid spread is caused by several things, one of which is because many are not aware of being infected by the virus. The reason, symptoms that are felt not immediately appear when contracted the plague.

Please note, this Coronavirus raises the symptoms of pneumonia. Usually, the case is different for every patient who has been infected. There are those who experience symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, and loss of sense of smell and taste.

But these symptoms do not immediately appear immediately when the virus has infected a person’s body. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), these symptoms will only appear between 2-14 days after being infected with the virus.

As the research has done, 97 percent of COVID-19 sufferers only experience symptoms after being infected for 11 days.

The study also showed that the average incubation period experienced by the COVID-19 patient was approximately five days. Therefore, no wonder the spread of this virus is not realized, because as long as they do not feel symptoms, people will move as usual.

To find out more, Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan identified the pattern of symptoms experienced by COVID-19 patients. Finally they found two phases of symptoms, the first lasting for seven days and the next two weeks.

The first phase usually raises general symptoms such as fever, diarrhea, cough and others. While the second phase is a more severe phase, people will feel shortness of breath and the body feels very tired as if just working hard.

Unlike the case with breastfeeding mothers, they usually only experience symptoms on the fifth day. Usually when they have breastfeeding difficulty.

Also with old age, or elderly. They usually feel the complaints increasingly, plus congenital diseases that generally arise due to age.

However, according to research some people may experience serious illnesses after these symptoms occur, such as acute pneumonia. Even so, about 85 percent of cases of symptoms will begin to decrease and most will disappear after seven days.
