Restoration Experts with decades of experience!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to respond to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a new coronavirus that was first detected in China and has now spread internationally. This virus is highly contagious, and studies are reporting that it can survive on surfaces for 3-5 days on surfaces. While the virus is termed coronavirus, the sickness that results after infection has been termed COVID-19. COVID-19 is not influenza – in fact, it’s not even in the same type of viruses that cause the “flu”. Coronaviruses are an extremely common cause of colds and other upper respiratory infections.
COVID-19 is declared a pandemic, which is a global outbreak of a disease. It has caused many people to become seriously ill and many have died from contracting the disease.
Illness from COVID-19 is wide ranging, from mild to severe symptoms and death. According to the CDC, symptoms may appear two days to two weeks after exposure:
• Shortness of breath
It is important to consult your medical provider if you develop any severe or concerning symptoms.
