What happens if you get infected with the coronavirus


The coronavirus looks like a very mild disease, like a common cold, in the majority of people. There are certain people who get infected and have serious illnesses among them are the health workers. They receive more does of the virus than normal people and at the same time, they have no immunity. So in the general population, it’s likely that we may have less serious infections than health workers.

Who are the people who should be most concerned about coronavirus? It draws a conclusion to people who are in developing countries that don’t have access to good medical care. Those people would be at great risk, especially the elderly. In industrialized countries, it’s very elderly who have comorbidities, such as diabetes or pulmonary diseases, who are at risk.


Till now, quarantine helps prevent the spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected without feeling symptoms. If going outside, wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19. Remember to stay at least 6 feet from people who don’t live with you and meanwhile avoid the crowds, the more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
