Can covid-19 be cured?

Add answer

There is no established cure for, or vaccine against COVID-19. This paper represents the first, and the only, attempt to provide an answer to the question of whether CVD-19 can be cured. By using two highly lethal pathogens, we have generated data that could help inform an eventual potential vaccine or the development of specific treatments. However, such studies are likely to be too costly to be carried out, and in the absence of such an effort we can only convey estimates of likely effects. The predictions from this paper need to be tested not only by using these two deadly viruses, with their associated data, but also, to a lesser extent, by using SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses.

What causes covid-19?

Add answer

Covid-19 has a variety of causes, however, there are more questions than answers. There is an increased likelihood of developing the disease, according to a certain age and race. The virus has a high rate of replication. The average hospital stay is around 5 days, which depends on the severity of the disease. However, there is still a lack of information on the disease.\n

What are the signs of covid-19?

Add answer

This is the first report based on an analysis of 1,000 patients to validate the symptomology associated with SARS-CoV-2. We report significant new symptoms not previously reported in SARS-CoV-2, including headache and malaise, and discuss the possibility of these symptoms contributing to the spread of this viral infection.

What are common treatments for covid-19?

Add answer

The treatment protocol for infected individuals undergoing intensive care should be developed on a case-by-case basis as the disease changes over time. There is insufficient evidence to support the use of specific antiviral medicines. At present, it remains impractical and expensive to develop a vaccine against the current coronavirus disease outbreak. Antiviral medications are currently indicated for those who have severe illnesses who require the medication to prevent permanent or temporary impairment or damage to their physical or mental abilities.

What is covid-19?

Add answer

The CDC’s recommendations for self-care during the Covid-19 outbreak were widely adopted by the news media but only around 8% of physicians received them in-depth. In light of the large number of news reports of self-care during a pandemic, dissemination of the self-care recommendations by the CDC should be implemented and optimized in future.

How many people get covid-19 a year in the United States?

Add answer

The number of confirmed infections of covid-19 reported and confirmed in individuals tested increased substantially through 31 July 2019, when testing began, suggesting that there likely were only a subset of all reported infections of covid-19. A surveillance system to track infections in the U.S. is warranted.

Unverified Answer

What are the common side effects of treatment?

Add answer

In a recent study, findings shows a common side effect of treatment: [Appetite loss]. Both patients with metastatic cancer and those with diabetes also reported [appetite loss]. This reinforces the necessity of dieting and hydration as a routine procedure in all patients with cancer.

Unverified Answer

What does treatment usually treat?

Add answer

Individuals with COPD should be assessed for disease severity at the outset of the outbreak, and it is important to identify the underlying cause of lung function impairment, because many of the effects of COPD can be minimized with aggressive treatment, such as anti-inflammation and supplemental oxygen for patients at high risk. As a population ages and becomes more frail, the need for end stage medical treatment like hospice care is expected to increase. The number and length of hospitalizations also will need adjustment to respond to changes in the patient population.

Unverified Answer

How does treatment work?

Add answer

Specific drug treatments and surgical procedures that are offered to patients with type 2 diabetes, who have a high-risk CVD profile, may have limited, subclinical health outcomes benefits. Specific types of surgery, such as gastric bypass surgery, are not as beneficial as others, such as AGBP. Overall, treatment was not associated with health outcomes other than CVD.

Have there been any new discoveries for treating covid-19?

Add answer

At this early stage, no evidence exists of any effective treatments or cures for this virus.<br>We believe it is vital that a review of the options is conducted.<br>The virus is currently in the pandemic phase. More than 1000 scientists are working on finding a cure and/or effective treatments.<br>We should not delay in starting these types of new searches. We need to find this cure and/or treatment for this virus quickly.

How serious can covid-19 be?

Add answer

Recent findings shows that, despite a lack of evidence of excess mortality, current estimates of the overall case fatality rate of the 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak in the general population are likely more than two times the average baseline mortality rate. While we can’t know whether mortality will be higher, our findings suggest that for all people, the risk of death from the disease is likely more than 20%. More evidence, ideally with a randomized clinical trial or community-based cohort, is needed to address the concern that the morbidity and mortality from the disease is much greater than currently estimated.

What are the latest developments in treatment for therapeutic use?

Add answer

We continue to investigate novel treatments for the prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infections and for SARS-CoV-2 severity and mortality. Furthermore, an adaptive and flexible allocation of antiviral therapy to individuals may prove beneficial and should be considered by national and international guidelines.
