Why is this important?

SARS-CoV-2 is a highly infectious and potentially deadly virus that causes a respiratory disease called COVID-19.

In recent months and weeks, the virus and the corresponding disease have often been compared to the flu virus and seasonal flu.

It is true that the symptoms are apparently similar. However, given what we know today about this new virus, the threat it poses to society is different.

1. More contagious than the flu

COVID-19 is much more infectious and spreads much faster than seasonal flu.

2. Deadlier than the flu

Its fatality rate is estimated at around 2%, which means that, unfortunately, it is estimated that 2% of people diagnosed with COVID-19 will succumb to it. By comparison, the case fatality rate for seasonal influenza is estimated at around 0.1%. This means that COVID-19 would be around 20 times more deadly than seasonal flu.

3. Possibility of serious symptoms

An estimated 15-20% of those infected suffer from severe symptoms that require medical attention, including pneumonia with shortness of breath and a drop in blood oxygen saturation.

4. No treatment, no vaccine, no immunity

As this virus appeared recently, there is no really adequate treatment. Further research is needed to effectively treat those infected. Similarly, there is no vaccine yet and the development of this vaccine will take a long time.

In the absence of a vaccine and immunity for the population, everyone is a potential target of infection. While most infected people will suffer only mild symptoms, this lack of overall immunity can lead to severe illness in many at-risk or compromised individuals.

5. Exponential growth

A very large part of the world's population can be infected with this virus. With the number of infected people currently doubling within days, our medical systems can potentially be quickly overloaded. This can lead to a higher number of deaths because people will not receive the care they need.
