One 23-year-old is trying to let people know how serious it is.
Karim was high risk.
Some of the symptoms I have been experiencing are shortness of breath, coughing, dizziness, loss of appetite, and vomiting on the first day.Karim decided to document his fight with COVID-19 for TikTok.
He's receiving oxygen.But thankfully the youngster doesn't require a ventilator... Hopefully his videos will remind young people that COVID-19 is incredibly dangerous for them too.
Coronavirus isn't a joke.Yes things in much of the world seem to be getting better - but we have to take this virus seriously.
So remember.Things certainly aren't back to normal just yet - and we need to make sure we keep following the restrictions and guidelines in place. Or things could get much worse.
How much worse?Well listen to Global Head of Research and Animal Welfare for Animals in Farming Kate Blaszak, who has warned that the intensive farming all over China has the potential to increase antibiotic resistance and create a deadlier pathogen than COVID-19.
China is incubating two new strains of bird flu. It is also dealing with an outbreak of swine flu, which is a mixture of human, pig, and avian influenza viruses. These different viruses mixed together to form a very potent pathogen. The current swine flu virus that has broken out in China has the potential to bind very successfully in the human throat and respiratory system.Of course. That's what 2020's all about.
