The Impact of Covid-19 on Society

Motivation

The motivation of the project is to investigate the impact Covid-19 had on the world, especially on society, asking how the participants are experiencing the situation, asking variable and simple questions. And what I am going to do, is explain what I have learned from the responses of the participants.

What is the Coronavirus?

The coronavirus or Covid-19, Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is a respiratory infectious disease that can spread from person to person. The virus was first identified during the investigation of an outbreak in Wuhan, China. Currently Covid-19 has affected a pandemic that has damaged many countries around the world.

What are the symptoms of Covid-19?

The most common symptoms of Covid-19 are fever, nasal congestion, respiratory distress, headache and a sore throat.

Older people are at higher risk because:

  • They have health problems such as high blood pressure
  • Heart and lung problems
  • Diabetes, Obesity
  • Cancer
  • Smoking.
