So what is known more or less reliably at the moment?

The COVID-19 coronavirus can be transmitted either from a sick person with symptoms or during the asymptomatic period.

* The incubation period, during which a sick person is contagious but has no symptoms, is usually 4-14 days.

In some cases, the disease may be asymptomatic or practically asymptomatic.

* The symptoms of this coronavirus infection are not specific, they are indistinguishable from the symptoms of ordinary SARS or flu: fever, cough, sore throat, weakness, loss of smell.

There are currently no specific medications available for the treatment of covid-19 coronavirus infection. If there is information somewhere that a certain drug cures the covid-19 coronavirus, then this is misleading, to put it mildly. Currently, they are trying to use various molecules to treat this infection, including, for example, drugs for the treatment of HIV infection, hydroxychloroquine and others, but in the coming months, you probably should not expect medication.

Treatment of COVID-19 is symptomatic, as in acute respiratory viral infections. In severe cases, when viral pneumonia develops (the cause of most deaths from this coronavirus), only artificial lung ventilation (IVL) using special medical devices can help.

* There is currently no vaccine for the covid-19 coronavirus, according to preliminary forecasts, at the earliest, when it may appear-in a year, and most likely – even later.

* The mortality rate from the covid-19 coronavirus is currently about 3%, which is higher than the mortality rate of severe seasonal flu, but data vary for different populations. At the same time, children, teenagers and young adults practically do not die. Mortality increases with age, and after 65 years is more than 10% (the figures will probably change with the increase in the number of patients).

* Pregnant women are susceptible to this virus at the level of the General population, that is, they get the same disease as others, taking into account age. At the same time, during pregnancy, the virus is not transmitted to the child and does not cause any damage to it (information may change with an increase in the number of cases).

* Despite quarantine measures, the COVID-19 virus will spread very widely, and there will be a fairly large number of cases.

According to a number of experts (doctors, virologists), the incidence of COVID-19 worldwide is much higher, since quarantine measures (closing borders with China, stopping air traffic) began too late. Since the covid-19 coronavirus is indistinguishable from SARS and flu by symptoms, and problems with laboratory testing (its availability, availability, and the number of false-positive and false-negative results) persist, many patients are diagnosed with SARS, flu, community-acquired pneumonia, and deaths can be recorded as from viral (or bacterial) pneumonia or other diseases (especially in elderly patients with chronic diseases).

* Prevention of coronavirus infection is non-specific, as well as for flu and acute respiratory viral infections: frequent hand washing, avoiding visiting large crowds of people. But there is also a difference: Who (world health organization) and other medical communities recommend wearing masks when visiting crowded areas.

If you suspect a coronavirus infection COVID-19 or in case of contact with a sick person, it is better to isolate yourself at home, and call the hotline of Rospotrebnazor, the center for hygiene and epidemiology, an infectious diseases hospital or polyclinic. There is no point in applying to private medical centers, since if a patient is suspected of having the COVID-19 coronavirus, they should still be sent to the appropriate state medical institution.
