At times of crisis and we need everyone to be armed with the right tools of information to fight together as it’s the best defense we have. We’ve compiled a list of local and global content so we can collectively support the health of our communities.
According to WHO, “the most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough while some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. Some become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.” However, as this coronavirus is new, researchers are constantly renewing insights and statistics.
