Screening COVID-19 cases for risk
To all appearances, this infection may be treated with the same general approach to fever and cough, used for influenza and other respiratory infections. This virus, however has different presentations, and in some cases apparently mild illness can progress to serious illness or death. As many as 1/3 of cases present with abdominal pain and diarrhea and no respiratory symptoms, which may develop later. A substantial number of symptomatic patients, about 20% according to the World Health Organization, will require hospital care, with potential severity in high risk individuals, those over 60 years old, or with preexisting heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, or lung disease. Young people may also progress to severe disease and die. If caring for yourself or others with herbs, you should be familiar with warning signs of severe disease, and seek life-supporting conventional care when called for.
