Corona Virus: Updates On The Vaccine Hunt For Covid-19
With the desperate hunt for the Corona vaccine Russia has finally finished, it’s human trials and is now releasing a vaccine. From The Pan American Health Organization, Jarbas Barbosa has said that the World Health Organization has not obtained enough information on the Russian COVID-19 vaccine to evaluate it and qualify it as the most effective way to get rid of this virus. Although President Vladimir Putin stated Russia has produced the first vaccine which offers "sustainable immunity" against the coronavirus.
Worldwide coronavirus cases have exceeded 20 million, with Mexico and Brazil reporting a combined 27,000 infections in just one day. On the bright side, more than 12.2 million have recovered, and almost 735,000 have died from the disease, according to the Johns Hopkins University tally.
According to the WHO, symptoms of the virus involve fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing complications. Other signs include loss of taste or smell as well as muscle aches for which people should start looking out for.
In more critical cases, it can lead to pneumonia, multiple organ failures, and even death. Current estimations of the incubation period are the time between when the infection starts and the onset of symptoms which ranges from one to 14 days. Most infected people show symptoms within five to six days.
However, in some cases infected patients can also be asymptomatic, signifying they do not display any symptoms despite having the virus in their systems. New cases of the novel coronavirus that appeared in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in late December are being reported daily around the world. More than 737,000 people have died from COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, while 20 million infections have been confirmed in at least 188 countries and territories. Over 12 million people have recovered to date.
