This post was originally added to this website on 3 March 2020. This is the fourth update to the original notification. Make good choices...if not for yourself, then for others. Be safe. Be well.
For current information on COVID-19, please visit the Center for Disease Control's Coronavirus (Covid-19) page HERE and the World Health Organization's (WHO) Coronavirus page HERE.
I am not a medical professional, therefore, information in this post is provided from trusted medical resources to help provide clarity...and some of it is common sense. There is also much more information out there. These are just some basics to help. As always, should you have any questions or concerns, you should first direct them to your physician or applicable medical professional via phone.
Current Common Signs of Infection
NOTE: Do not assume that you and those around you are well. Some of those with COVID-19 do not have a fever (common symptom). Others with COVID-19 can be asymptomatic, i.e., infected without symptoms and/or pre-symptomatic, i.e., able to spread infection without realizing they're sick.
In severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, heart complications, central nervous system complications and even death.
