I Feel The Pain Of Coronavirus Patients – Pope Francis

Pope Francis has come out to say that he understands the pain that those battling COVID-19 are going through.

He recently revealed that he also experienced a near-fatal brush with death from a respiratory disease decades ago, so he knows how they are feeling.

According to him, when he was 20, he came down with a deadly lung infection and was hospitalised in his native Argentina, but God made him survive.

He added that fighting to breathe is no joke, so people should realize what coronavirus patients attached to a ventilator go through on a daily basis.

His words, “For months I did not know who I was, if I was going to live or die. Not even doctors knew whether I would make it,”

“One day I asked my mother, hugging her, to tell me if I was going to die.

“I know from experience how coronavirus patients attached to a ventilator are feeling while fighting to breathe.”

Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are yet to be vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.

Coronaviruses constitute the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, in the family Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales, and realm Riboviria. They are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The genome size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 27 to 34 kilobases, the largest among known RNA viruses. The name coronavirus is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “halo”, which refers to the characteristic appearance reminiscent of a crown or a solar corona around the virions (virus particles) when viewed under two-dimensional transmission electron microscopy, due to the surface covering in club-shaped protein spikes.

Human coronaviruses were first discovered in the late 1960s. The earliest ones discovered were an infectious bronchitis virus in chickens and two in human patients with the common cold (later named human coronavirus 229E and human coronavirus OC43). Other members of this family have since been identified, including SARS-CoV in 2003, HCoV NL63 in 2004, HKU1 in 2005, MERS-CoV in 2012, and SARS-CoV-2 (formerly known as 2019-nCoV) in 2019. Most of these have involved serious respiratory tract infections.
