Abstract

A REVIEW ON NOVEL CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

Hina D. Mehta*, Dr. N. R. Dighade and Dr. Ravi P. Kalsait

ABSTRACT

The World Health Organization declared it as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. The 2019-nCoV has been identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China beginning in December 2019. As of 28 March 2020 (9:30 AM), according to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW), a total of 873 COVID-19 cases (826 Indians and 47 foreign nationals) have been reported in 27 states/union territories. These include 78 who have been cured/discharged, 1 who has migrated and 19 reported deaths. As of 8 April 2020, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare have confirmed a total of 5,274 cases, 411 recoveries (including 1 migration) and 149 deaths in the country. Experts suggest
the number of infections could be much higher as India's testing rates are among the lowest in the world. Hospital isolation of all confirmed cases, tracing and home quarantine of the contacts is ongoing. The reported symptoms include fever, cough, fatigue, pneumonia, headache, diarrhea, hemoptysis, and dyspnea. Preventive measures such as masks, hand hygiene practices, avoidance of public contact, case detection, contact tracing, and quarantines are effective for reducing the transmission. The virus that causes COVID-19 is designated severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2); previously, it was referred to as 2019-nCoV. To date, no specific antiviral treatment is proven effective, hence, infected people primarily rely on symptomatic treatment and supportive care. This article discussed for a better understanding of the epidemiology, causes, clinical diagnosis, prevention and control of this virus. Therefore this review article aims to focus on more research work to be carried out to provide more reliable and valid effect to control and manage public emergency in both acute and chronic condition of covid-19.

Keywords: covid-19, public health emergency, review.
