COVID-19 Pandemic - Clinical Features, Recent Investigations, Diagnosis, Modes of Transmission, and Role of WHO
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
In 2019 December, a bunch of respiratory disorder cases associated with city’s South China seller spot for sea food of unknown pathology was identified by the health authorities of Wuhan, China. And has been designated a public health emergency of international concern. Consequently, it was concluded that the virus spreads from individual-to-individual, and carriers are the most common source of Coronavirus growth. Novel Coronavirus, SARS–COV-2, was revealed by subsequent investigations and that was the initiative agent now at the core of a major outburst. To prevent or to reduce transmission, special focus and efforts were applied to vulnerable population including elderly people, children and health workers. And large scale measures were taken to lower communicable spread of COVID-19 from surveying a relation of (SARS) Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and (MERS) Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, where beta corona virus, which strike the lower respiratory tract and shows pneumonia in human being, was the causative agent. WHO announced outbreak of COVID-19 in the early First light of January 31, 2020 (Korea Standard Time) as “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” (PHEIC).An important collective goal was to reduce the outbreak and to flatten the peak of the outbreak curve. Delays result in significantly higher death tolls. In this review, we are trying to highlight the clinical features, investigations, WHO declaration of PHEIC, mode of transmission, effective Infection protocol to prevent this virulent infection from expansion and WHO 5 Movements because Hand Washing is a way of disinfecting a person’s hands that considerably decreases likely pathogens (deadly germs) on the palms.

- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)
- Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MARS)
