Coronavirus disease 2019: Infectious respiratory disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a contagious respiratory and vascular disease. It is caused by becoming infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which is a specific type of coronavirus. Common symptoms include fever, cough, fatigue, shortness of breath or breathing difficulties, and loss of smell and taste. The incubation period, which is the time between becoming infected with the virus and showing symptoms, may range from one to fourteen days. While most people have mild symptoms, some people develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) possibly precipitated by cytokine storm, multi-organ failure, septic shock, and blood clots. Longer-term damage to organs has been observed, and there is concern about a significant number of patients who have recovered from the acute phase of the disease but continue to experience a range of effects—including severe fatigue, memory loss and other cognitive issues, low grade fever, muscle weakness, breathlessness, and other symptoms—for months afterwards.
