Latest research by Chinese scientists shows that the danger of coronavirus from the point of view of its “survival” is undervalued. They found that in the respiratory tract human coronavirus can be as much as 37 days. This is 2.5 times more two-week period, which is used as quarantine measures.

the study is published in the newspaper the Lancet. Medical findings based on the analysis of the course of disease in 191 patients from two hospitals in Wuhan, where a pandemic coronavirus. In one case, virus RNA was detected in the sample of the patient’s breathing after 37 days after infection. And the small revealed the life of the virus in the human body – 8 days. While the median value in the sample is 20 days. That is, in most studied cases, the coronavirus has lived in the human body for more than two weeks, which give authorities of different countries on quarantine.

Wednesday has been published and the results of the American study, which also confirms the high persistence of the coronavirus not only in humans but also beyond. In the air COVID-19 viable for three hours, and on different surfaces it lives up to three days. So, copper and cardboard coronavirus viable 4 hours and 24 hours respectively. And on plastic and steel – up to 72 hours, writes The Daily Mail.

However, scientists emphasize that they have no data on whether someone is infected with coronavirus is through contact with plastic or another contaminated surface. However, the “theoretically possible”, says the head of the team that conducted the study, Neeltje van Dormolen (national Institute of Allergy and infectious diseases).

the Study was conducted in the laboratory Rocky Mountain NationalInstitute of health in Hamilton (Montana) scientists from the National Institute of health, Princeton University and the University of California (Los Angeles) with funding from the US government and National science Foundation.

Professor of Microbiology, Georgetown University Julie Fischer noted that the obtained very important results on the basis of which each have to draw certain conclusions and to change your lifestyle and habits. “We need to wash hands, to realize that the infected can contaminate surface and keep your hands away from your face” she said.

According to Neltje van Dormolen, scientists are still studying how effective certain methods of cleaning surfaces, writes MarketWatch. However, various disinfectant solutions probably killed coronavirus.

Another study conducted in Germany showed that in the early period is almost asymptomatic the disease contact with infected are the most dangerous. Therefore, even a weak cough and the appearance of weakness is reason enough for placing a person into quarantine, and not only fever.

March 11, the world health organization has acknowledged the increase in the incidence of coronavirus pandemic. Cases of infection recorded in more than a hundred countries, including Russia. All over the world are already infected more than 128 thousand people, killed more than 4,700 people.

Symptoms

For the new coronavirus infection, caused by COVID-19, characterized by the presence of clinical symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections: fever (>90%), coughing (dry or with small amount of sputum, but without the snot) in 80% of cases, shortness of breath (55%), myalgia and fatigue (44%), a feeling of stuffiness in the chest (>20%).

the Most severe shortness of breath develops to the 6-8-th day from the moment of infection, were referred to in rethe recommendations of the Ministry of health.

it is Also established that among the first symptoms can be headaches (8%), hemoptysis (5%), diarrhea (3%), nausea, vomiting, palpitations. These symptoms in the onset of infection can occur in the absence of fever.

the clinical manifestations of coronavirus related acute respiratory viral infection, lung flow, pneumonia without respiratory failure, pneumonia, acute respiratory failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis, septic (infectious-toxic) shock.

Hypoxemia (decrease of oxygen in the blood to less than 88%) is growing more than 30% of patients.

the Most severe form was observed in elderly patients (60 years or more).
