COVID-19 & Us
Covid-19 And Its Effects
Symptoms of Covid-19
There are certain symptoms by which we can identify the virus. These include mild illnesses and pneumonia. Some people may not show the symptoms, as studies show that while some are symptomatic, others are asymptomatic. For those who are symptomatic, they may exhibit the following symptoms:
- Shortness of Breath
Other symptoms include loss of appetite, nausea, runny nose, fatigue, vomiting, among others. These are the symptoms you likely may face and if you are experiencing multiples of them, you can get tested here.
If you have hay fever or respiratory allergies, the chances are high that you may show certain symptoms similar to those of Covid-19. However, there is a way to tell the differences.
- Allergic asthma or hay fever does not come with fever
- Other signs of hay fever include itchy nose, watery eyes, and itchy throat, but these do not apply to Covid-19. You can get more information on the symptoms here.
How the Government Is Responding?
The government is at the forefront of gaining access to the vaccine from Oxford University. This means once the vaccine is certified, the government will be one of the first to get.
The government has been supporting families and businesses to get through the harsh economic realities through the provision of economic stimulus.
The government has also been providing access to quality healthcare such that all Australians can have access to adequate health services.
