Dr Wayne Cottrell:

  • SARS-CoV-2 is a new, highly infectious, coronavirus that is spread by aerosol, droplets and contact with infected surfaces
  • Most people will have asymptomatic or mild disease
  • More vulnerable groups (elderly, obese, people with co morbidities) can develop serious illness, with hospitalisation and death
  • We are also seeing a subgroup of people developing so called “long-covid”
  • It usually affects younger, otherwise healthy people
  • Symptoms range from extreme fatigue, cardiac or psychiatric symptoms, varying in intensity
  • Some present with strokes, blood clots, kidney or heart damage, diabetes and even neurological and psychiatric issues
  • COVID is less likely to cause serious illness in children, although there have been cases of Kawasaki type syndromes.

PREVENTION

  • The best way to prevent infection is by not coming into contact with the virus in the first instance
  • Social distancing and masks have been shown to reduce risk of transmission
  • Regular hand washing with soap for at least 20 seconds, frequently using hand sanitizer and not touching your face
  • Until there is a vaccine, we will have to continue with the above measures, to try and reduce the spread and effects of the virus

SYMPTOMS

  • Very wide range of symptoms
  • Most common: Fever, dry cough, tiredness
  • Less common: aches and pains, sore throat, loss of smell/taste, diarrhoea, headaches, conjunctivitis
  • Serious symptoms: breathlessness, chest pain/pressure, loss of speech or movement

TREATMENT

  • For people with mild symptoms, self-isolation and over the counter pain relief
  • More serious cases of respiratory illness require hospital admission and some sort of breathing support
  • Steroids have been shown to help reduce the inflammatory response blamed for the most serious illness
  • There are multiple treatments and vaccines under investigation
  • The good news is that we are learning more about the virus every day and treatments are improving
