What can be done to help the elderly during the coronavirus disease pandemic?

Support for the elderly, their families and their carers is an essential part of countries’ overall response to the pandemic.

Who should be vaccinated first for COVID-19?

All Member States have access to COVID-19 vaccines at the same time based on the size of their population. Most countries have defined priority groups and are further refining who should be given priority in these priority groups, eg the elderly over the age of 80. ECDC has published an overview of where the EU / EEA and UK countries are with the development of their vaccination plans / strategies. ECDC is also working on a modeling exercise to prioritize support to Member States.

Can smoking increase the risk of serious COVID-19 disease?

Early research shows that, compared with non-smokers, a history of smoking can significantly increase the chances of adverse health outcomes for COVID-19 patients, including intensive care, mechanical ventilation requirements, and severe health consequences [1] [2]. It is already known that smoking is a risk factor for many other respiratory infections, including colds, flu, pneumonia and tuberculosis [3]. The effects of smoking on the respiratory system increase the likelihood that smokers will suffer from these diseases, which could be more severe [4] [5]. Smoking has also been associated with an increased development of acute respiratory distress syndrome, a key complication for severe cases of COVID-19 [6], among people with severe respiratory infections [7] [8]. Any type of tobacco smoking is harmful to the body’s systems, including the cardiovascular and respiratory systems [9]

What are the dangers of smoking my waterpipe during the coronavirus disease pandemic?

The main ingredient used in pipes is tobacco, and its use has acute and long-lasting adverse effects on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems [24] [25], probably increasing the risk of diseases including coronary artery disease and COPD [26]. The common nature of water pipe smoking means that users often share a single mouthpiece and gut, especially in social settings [27]. In addition, the water apparatus itself (including the hose and chamber) can provide an environment that promotes the survival of microorganisms outside the body.

Who are at higher risk of developing serious illness from COVID-19?

Older people and those with underlying health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and cancer are more likely to develop serious diseases.

Who named the Covid variants?

The World Health Organization has started naming variants after Greek letters to avoid public confusion and stigma.

Are people of a particular age vulnerable to coronavirus disease?

COVID-19 can infect people of all ages. Older and younger people can be infected with the COVID-19 virus. Older people and people with pre-existing health conditions such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease appear to be more susceptible to severe illness than viruses.

Can the coronavirus disease be transmitted through water?

Drinking water is not transmitted by COVID-19. And if you swim in a pool or pond, you can’t get COVID-19 through the water. But what can happen if you go to a pool that is crowded and if you are close to other people and if someone is infected, then you can, of course, be affected.

Who are at higher risk of developing serious illness from COVID-19?

Older people and those with underlying health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and cancer are more likely to develop serious diseases.

What are symptoms of COVID-19 affecting the lungs?

What are symptoms of COVID-19 affecting the lungs?

Some people may feel short of breath. People with chronic heart, lung, and blood disease may be at risk for severe COVID-19 symptoms, including pneumonia, acute respiratory distress, and acute respiratory failure.

What are the complications of COVID-19? Complications may include pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), multiple organ failure, septic shock, and death.

Who are at higher risk of developing serious illness from COVID-19?

Older people and those with underlying health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and cancer are more likely to develop serious diseases.

How long does it take for symptoms of the coronavirus disease to appear?

On average, it takes 5 to 6 days from the moment someone is infected with the virus for symptoms to appear, but it can take up to 14 days.

Are smokers more likely to develop severe symptoms with COVID-19?

Current evidence suggests that the severity of COVID-19 disease is higher among smokers. Smoking impairs lung function, making it harder for the body to fight respiratory disease due to the new coronavirus. Tobacco users have a higher risk of contracting the virus through their mouths while smoking cigarettes or using other tobacco products. If smokers become infected with the COVID-19 virus, they face a higher risk of getting a severe infection because their lung health is already at risk.

What are signs and symptoms of the coronavirus disease?

Signs and symptoms include respiratory symptoms and include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. In severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, and sometimes death. Standard recommendations for preventing the spread of COVID-19 include frequent cleaning of the hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water; covering the nose and mouth with a bent elbow or a disposable tissue when coughing and sneezing; and avoiding close contact with anyone who has a fever and cough.

When is a person contagious with COVID-19?

Evidence shows that people become contagious about 48 hours before symptoms begin, but are most contagious when they have symptoms, even if the symptoms are mild and nonspecific. It seems that someone infected with the Delta variant can infect others earlier, within two days of being exposed. Available data show that adults with mild to moderate COVID-19 remain contagious no longer than 10 days after the onset of symptoms and this has not changed with the new variant of concern. Most adults with severe to critical illness or severe immunosuppression are likely to remain contagious for up to 20 days after the onset of symptoms.
