1. Coronavirus – what is it?
All Frequently Asked Questions about Coronavirus – Answered!
First identified in the 1960s, coronaviruses can be regarded as a family of viruses. These viruses are the main reason behind illness such as common cold and even some serious diseases including Middle East Respiratory (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). These viruses were originally transmitted between people and animals. It was believed that MERS travelled to humans from a type of camel, while SARS transmitted from civet cats to humans. There are a number of coronaviruses out there that are circulating in animals, but have never infected humans. However, this new strain – the novel coronavirus – is transmitting from human to human.

Now that you know what exactly coronavirus is, let's make you aware of its symptoms. Well, the symptoms of this deadly virus are the same as any other upper respiratory infection. This includes coughing, runny nose, sore throat and fever. Do you know what's causing this coronavirus to spread more? People, in most cases, are not being able to understand whether they have been infected by this virus or is it just a different cold-causing virus, for example, rhinovirus. If the symptoms go away in a few days, then there's nothing to worry. However, in case a coronavirus infection spreads to the respiratory tract, which includes your lungs and windpipe, it can cause pneumonia. It is true, especially for people with heart disease, older age and weak immune system. Deficiency of Vitamin C and Zinc can cause more issues. So make sure to take supplements for Vitamin C and Zinc for Immunity. And one such product is Fast&Up Charge that contains natural Vitamin C.
