Sars-COV-2 infection refers to the viral infection caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (sars-cov-2) virus. This virus is responsible for the global COVID-19 pandemic, which emerged in late 2019. Sars-COV-2 primarily affects the respiratory system but can also lead to a wide range of symptoms and complications involving other organs and systems in the body.


Sars-COV-2 infection is a contagious illness that primarily spreads through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or breathes. The virus can also spread by touching surfaces or objects that have the virus on them and then touching the face, particularly the mouth, nose, or eyes.

After exposure to the virus, the incubation period typically ranges from 2 to 14 days, during which an infected person may not exhibit any symptoms but can still spread the virus to others. Symptoms of Sars-COV-2 infection can vary widely and may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, and more. In some cases, especially among older adults and those with underlying health conditions, the infection can lead to severe respiratory illness, pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and even death.

Testing methods, such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and rapid antigen tests, are used to diagnose Sars-COV-2 infection. Public health measures like wearing masks, practicing physical distancing, frequent handwashing, and vaccination have been recommended to prevent the spread of the virus.

The global response to Sars-COV-2 infection has involved extensive research, the development of vaccines, and public health interventions aimed at controlling its spread and minimizing its impact on societies and healthcare systems.
