What is a coronavirus and COVID-19?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19. COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80 percent) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around one out of every six people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. Approximately two percent of people with the disease have died. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
To the CoorsTek Family,
I was recently asked by your Leadership Team to help provide some medical guidance for CoorsTek in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. By means of introduction, I am an emergency physician with the University of Colorado, near the CoorsTek global headquarters in Golden. I wish we were meeting under better circumstances but hope to assist the CoorsTek community in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more.
