The Covid surge is here again. And the new variants are popping up like it’s a trend now. Although it gave us a break for a little while, it seems like it will hit the world again with more force.

However, the world government is not sitting still and doing all the research it can to pull down the cases.
A recent study looked into the possibility that long-term covid could develop from asymptomatic covid. There are so many words here that you might find foreign, so we are gonna explain them to you in the easiest way possible. First of all, let’s start with asymptomatic Covid.
What Is Asymptomatic Covid?
Asymptomatic individuals, such as those with COVID-19, don’t exhibit any signs or symptoms of sickness or disease, yet they can still spread the virus that can infect others actively. And in the case of covid, the symptoms may not occur even post the coronavirus’s incubation phase. Another such word that is closely associated with asymptomatic is pre-symptomatic.
Now pre-symptomatic indicates that you test positive for the virus but have not yet shown any symptoms. The normal incubation time is about 4 to 5 days, and the onset of symptoms might take anywhere from 2 to 14 days.
But before we look into the matters of asymptomatic covid it is essential that you are aware of the symptoms of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
Symptoms Of Covid-19
These are some common symptoms noticed in Covid patients however they may change according to the different variants also depending upon the vaccination status. Since covid is a viral infection you can try antiparasitic drugs such as Ivermectin and Ivercor 6 but make sure whichever medicine you take, first consult your doctor. Do not try any new drugs without talking to your doctor first.
- Cold, fever, or cough
- respiratory issues or shortness of breath
- Body or muscle aches or fatigue
- Loss of smell and taste
- Sore throat
- runny or congested nose
- nausea or diarrhea
Diagnosis Of SARS-CoV-2
Phase – 1
RT-PCR may not be a new word for you now, I am sure you have heard it a thousand times already in covid. But do you know how exactly it works? You already know how samples collect (through nasal swabs), so let’s move on to the next phase.
This sample is put through some chemical tests to separate the sample’s RNA from other components including proteins and lipids. When RNA is extracted, it contains both the person’s genetic material and, if the virus is present, its own RNA.
A certain enzyme is used to reverse-transcribe the RNA into DNA. Then, scientists incorporate other brief DNA snippets that complement particular regions of the viral DNA. These fragments bind to certain regions of the viral DNA if the virus is present in the sample.
Some of the additional genetic bits utilize to create DNA strands during the polymerase chain reaction. In contrast, others are used to create DNA and label the strands with marker information that can use to identify the virus.
The RT-PCR machine is subsequently filled with the mixture. The device alternately heats and cools the liquid to start precise chemical reactions that duplicate the targeted viral DNA segments in fresh, identical copies.
Typically this process undergoes 35 cycles, meaning that by the time the process is complete, 35 billion copies of the viral DNA sections will have been produced.
These new samples are place under the computer, and after each cycle, the computer keeps track of the sample’s fluorescence levels.
Fluorescence above a specific threshold indicates the presence of the virus. In order to gauge the intensity of the infection, researchers also keep track of how many cycles are required to reach this threshold. The fewer cycles required, the more serious the virus is.
How Risk-free Are Asymptomatic Patients?
So basically there is no hard data about how common this asymptomatic covid is? Or how risk-free it is? Because it depends upon the demographic that was studied and how the experiments were set up.
But one thing that surely came out of certain research is that about half of children who were diagnosed with covid were asymptomatic. So it is clear that children are more vulnerable to asymptomatic covid.
According to the 2021 review of the study, 40.5 percent of individuals with confirmed COVID-19 infections were also asymptomatic.
Speaking of risk, scientists believe that the risk doesn’t go away completely and may have a lower risk of long covid. Another scientist said; it can also lead to serious illnesses, paralysis, or cardiac dysfunction. And now if you think deeply, what this scientist believes might be true because since covid has caused havoc the number of deaths due to cardiac arrest has also increased significantly. This is just an assumption till it’s not prove officially.
Is Long COVID Good For Quality Of Life?
It’s obvious that any foreign particles that enter your body will definitely try to ruin your quality of life. The co-founder of Patient-Led Collaboratives says many people have gotten worsen instead of getting better over time (who were once infected by coronavirus).
They also added that almost half of long covid cases are experiencing Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) or even Dysautonomia which can make your life living hell.
The Nature Communications study found that about 42% of symptomatic patients feel partially recovered even after a time gap of 6 to 18 months.
Even though millions of people can still work and perform daily tasks, COVID has reduced their quality of life.
Covid 19 Treatment
As for treatment follow all the rules and preventive steps set out by WHO and only take the medicines and treatment approved by FDA. Medysale provides all types of treatment for Covid-19.
Even if feel little discomfort immediately get test, in case you are infect proper treatment can give in the initial stage so it doesn’t get worse. Some antivirals are Nirmatrelvir with Ritonavir (Paxlovid), Remdesivir (Veklury), and Molnupiravir (Lagevrio) given to the positively tested patients.
Doctors from all over the world have advised asthma sufferers to be extremely cautious and to take their medications as directed. However, they should speak with a doctor before using Iverheal 12, Iverheal 6, and Iversun 6. The probability of COVID cases can decrease with appropriate precaution and vaccination.
