Dogan OZDEMİR [1]


COVID-19 tüm dünyada sağlık ve sosyal krize neden olan dünya çapında bir salgındır. COVID-19, ilk olarak Hubei Eyaleti’nin Wuhan şehrinde Güney Çin'de tespit edildi. Virüs tüm kıtalara yayıldı ve birçok ülkeyi etkiledi. 30 Ocak 2020'de Dünya Sağlık Örgütü, COVID-19'un patlak vermesini uluslararası ciddi bir halk sağlığı acil durumu olduğunu ilan etti. Bu makalede dünyada çeşitli derecelerde hastalıklara neden olan COVID-19'un mevcut semptomları, klinik özellikleri, tedavileri ve önlenmesi özetlenmiştir. COVID-19 hastalarının belirtileri genellikle ateş, öksürük, boğaz ağrısı, nefes darlığı, yorgunluk, ve halsizlik. Antiviral ilaçlar, vitaminler, oksijen tedavisi genel tedavi yöntemidir. Ancak, en kısa sürede şüpheli kişilerin belirlenmesi ve diğer hastalar ve sağlık personeline enfeksiyonun bulaşmasını önlemek ve onları izole etmek hayati önem taşımaktadır.
