Risks, Preventions & Cures for Corona Unfolding Rapidly

Coronavirus of 2019 (aka COVID-19) has hit hard and impacted everyone around the globe. The data and information are unfolding daily. Guided by the evidence vetted by our team of doctors and scientists, we share people’s real-life stories of recovery, highlighting the latest information to help you understand, adjust to these trying times, and, hopefully, feel better — medically, economically, socially, and emotionally. You are not alone. Each person, family, community, and country is learning and adapting. It seems in our collective, and individual, best interest to do so together.

Corona means crown. The virus is named as such because of the crown-like spikes seen under the microscope. These spikes are proteins that serve a purpose for the virus because they allow it to enter human cells.

COVID-19 spreads easily and rapidly; the illness from the virus ranges from no symptoms at all to a very serious respiratory infection called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) along with failure of many systems in the body that may follow.

SARS of 2002/2003 and MERS of 2012 were also coronaviruses with a similar crown-like structure seen under the microscope; they, too, could cause life-threatening ARDS and multi-organ failure. There are similarities as well as significant differences between COVID-19 and these earlier two viruses that also caused pandemics.
