As the COVID-19 disease spreads across world regions and becomes a burning issue, United Capital Research introduces an enlightenment series, spanning across the details of the virus, its impact on Nigeria and what it means for our clients’ investment strategy. So far, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the disease has spread to about 209 countries, with more than 1.2million confirmed cases as at 6th Apr-2020. Notably, a total of 272,074 infected patients have so far recovered. Sadly, 64,471 deaths have also been recorded.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease belonging to a family of coronaviruses, which cause respiratory infections in animals and human beings. This new strain was unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China in Dec-2019. The most common symptoms are fever,
tiredness, and dry cough. Others symptoms are aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea. Also, according to the WHO, around 1 out of every 6 infected people, become seriously ill and develop difficulty breathing. Those with underlying
medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, as well as older people, are more likely to develop serious illness.

In terms of transmission, COVID-19 can spread through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets could land on objects and surfaces. It then spreads if other people touch infected objects or surfaces, then touch their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19, who coughs out or exhales droplets. Hence, in line with WHO recommendations, we implore clients to stay more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from a person who is sick, maintain self-isolation and most importantly work remotely from home to buy health workers the time required to contain the spread.
