The novel coronavirus that emerged in China in late December 2019 has spread to more than 160 countries on six continents, with the World Health Organisation (WHO) declaring the pathogen a global pandemic. The numbers are alarming - increasing considerably everyday.
So how is the virus attacking the body? And when is it the right time to see a doctor? Very recently, scientists have produced a day-by-day breakdown of the typical coronavirus symptoms, which can progress from a mild cough to serious respiratory problems in just eight days.
While these are just a few of the many myths doing rounds, I hope you remember to practice good hand and respiratory hygiene. It’s perhaps the most effective way to keep you and your loved ones safe!
