What is COVID-19?

COVID Care deals with the diagnosis, treatment and cure of coronavirus. Coronavirus or COVID-19 is a newly discovered infectious disease that is said to affect the respiratory system. It can be lethal depending on the immunity of the infected person. However, those with stronger immunity can recover without needing special treatment. 

Coronavirus belongs to the subfamily of Orthocoronavirinae, in the family of Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales, and realm Riboviria. They are known to be enveloped viruses having a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome with a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. 

The COVID-19 pandemic (2019-2020) wreaked havoc to the people worldwide. There have been many deaths, however, the recovery rate seems to exceed the death rate, indicating that the disease can be treated by boosting the immune system, hygiene and respiratory health.
