COVID-19 is now spreading worldwide.
So today we are going to find out what kind of virus COVID-19 is.
COVID-19 is a respiratory syndrome caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection.
the disease code is U07.1, and the pathogen is an RNA virus belonging to Coronaviridae.
the propagation path is known as droplet infection, propagation through contact, and can be infected by touching contaminated objects and touching the eyes, nose, and mouth.
it is said that the incubation period of COVID-19 takes 1 to 14 days (average 4 to 7 days).
symptoms of virus infection include fever, cough, shortness of breath, pneumonia, and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
symptoms vary, resulting in respiratory infections from mild to severe, rarely, sputum, sore throat, headache, hemoptysis and nausea and diarrhea are also present.

COVID-19 still has no vaccine, but as a way to prevent it,
wash your hands for 30 seconds or more with soap in running water, such as after going out, after a bowel movement, before or after a meal.
and when coughing, cough with your tissue or clothes sleeves covering your mouth and cor.
If you have respiratory symptoms, you should wear a mask.
And never touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with your unwashed hands.
Personally, in order to prevent COVID-19, I think it is better to wear a mask when going out even if there are no respiratory symptoms.
It is said that in Korea, the mask is worn when going out, and it has a preventive effect.
And if you get COVID-19, you may lose taste and smell, so in order to avoid infection with COVID-19,
