It was the same cold sore infection that started a five-month epidemic, but for some, the latest outbreak of the virus is just the latest in a series of cold sores to affect people around the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is warning of the “gravest threat” posed by the virus, which has infected more than 5.6 million people and killed more than 4,000 people.
“This virus is a highly contagious and persistent form of coronavirus,” WHO spokesperson David Silberman said on Friday.
“It is spread through close contact, and as soon as the virus appears in a person, it can spread rapidly.”
“The virus is not transmitted by direct contact but through coughing, sneezing, coughing, or sneezes.”
Symptoms of the coronaviruses colds include cough, fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle aches, and weakness.
The most common symptom is a sore throat and the worst are diarrhoea, which can lead to dehydration and dehydration-related pneumonia.
The WHO has put the virus on a five stage warning for people over the age of 60, but in the last week, the virus has spread to other age groups, with a number of countries, including Australia, New Zealand and the UK, seeing their rates rise.
“We have seen a rapid increase in the number of people with coronaviral infections, including those in Europe, North America and South America,” WHO spokesman Michael Osterholm told AFP.
There have also been outbreaks in New Zealand, South Africa and other Asian countries.””
We have had several outbreaks in the United States and Europe and we are seeing them in the rest of the world.”
There have also been outbreaks in New Zealand, South Africa and other Asian countries.
“Cases have been increasing across all age groups,” Osterholms said.
“For example, in New South Wales in the past week, we have seen cases in children aged 6 months to 18 years, people aged between 15 and 49 years, and adults aged over 50 years.”
The coronaviret virus can be spread through direct contact, coughing or sneeze.
Symptoms include coughs, fever and sore throat, and can lead both to dehydration, pneumonia and death.
It can also spread through a number.
Infections of the lung and skin are also more likely to occur in cases with no direct exposure, but the virus can also be passed from person to person.
“There are no vaccines, and no cure for the virus,” Silberman told AFP news agency.
“People can spread it by coughing, by sneezed or by coughing in a toilet.”
So it is a risk to all of us, particularly to those living in rural areas and cities where the virus could be transmitted by air travel.”WHO warns people to be cautious about travelling abroad and to take their temperature when they are at home, and keep warm.
It is also advising people to check for signs of the cold and flu.”
I don’t know what to say except stay away from people who seem to be infected,” Silbermansaid.”
Avoid all contact with people with flu-like symptoms.
