关于Rick Sharpee博士的冠状病毒

冠状病毒是一种传染病,最早在2019期间在中国武汉被发现。它在海鲜和禽畜市场上应该开始了。According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), there are many types of coronaviruses that most commonly cause upper-respiratory tract illnesses with symptoms of cough, fever, and shortness of breath. Most coronavirus sufferers experience mild symptoms. However, the disease can be fatal so it’s best to take it seriously and be prepared.

Dr. Rick Sharpee is the discoverer of coronavirus in cattle and has over 30 years of experience in infectious disease research. The following questions for Dr. Sharpee represent an adaptation of the original post from our friends at NOW Foods.

Questions & Answers About Coronavirus

Is coronavirus more dangerous than the flu?

Dr. Sharpee explains, “Coronavirus in humans is a severe upper respiratory tract disease similar to the flu (Influenza) but has been shown to be more invasive and deadly in humans due to its ability to rapidly multiply and spread in lung tissue. [In fatal cases] the patient becomes starved for oxygen and essentially dies from asphyxiation.”

What are coronavirus symptoms?

Symptoms are similar to the common cold and influenza, which makes diagnosis difficult. Symptoms may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, sinus congestion, nasal discharge, and a sore throat.

Who is most at risk?

Dr. Sharpee says that anyone exposed to a person who is demonstrating possible symptoms of the disease is at risk. Also at risk for contracting coronavirus are those with a compromised immune system, the very young, the very old, and especially anyone living, working, or visiting the city of Wuhan where the epidemic broke out.

What should I do if I’m worried I’ve contracted coronavirus?

“People who think they may have been exposed should contact their healthcare provider immediately”, urges Dr. Sharpee. He further expounds that people infected will require professional medical care to help relieve symptoms and in severe cases, the treatment should include supportive care for vital organs such as the lungs. The CDC has two screening tests and one confirmation test to detect the virus.

How can I help prevent contracting it?

Unfortunately, Dr. Sharpee says, “there is no specific antiviral treatment [vaccine] recommended for this virus infection.”Because of this, the best way to prevent infection is to avoid exposure. Implement the following preventive actions to help prevent the spread:

  • Keep a 6-foot distance from people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your face including eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you feel sick or have any of the symptoms.
  • Be sure to cover your coughing or sneezing with a tissue and throw it away.
  • Disinfect objects regularly because the disease may spread via touching an infected surface then touching your face.
  • Use a facemask if you are exhibiting possible coronavirus symptoms to protect others from the risk of getting infected.
  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water longer than usual – for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

More Anti Virus Tips

You might also want to work on improving your immunity since those with weakened immune systems are more at risk. Supplements are an excellent option along with getting adequate nutrition, exercise, and practicing self-care.
