6 reasons why Corona can still be dangerous

Corona, or more precisely COVID-19, can still be dangerous. Here you can find out why you should not underestimate the danger despite vaccinations and epidemics.

1. High portability

The SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 is highly contagious and spreads easily from person to person. It can be transmitted through droplet infection when coughing, sneezing or speaking, but also through direct contact with contaminated surfaces.

2. Severe disease progression

Although most people who get COVID-19 have mild to moderate symptoms, for some the disease can have serious or even life-threatening effects. Elderly people and people with health problems such as heart disease, diabetes or a weakened immune system are particularly at risk.

3. Long-COVID

Some individuals, even those with mild symptoms, may develop ongoing complications after recovering from COVID-19: Long-COVID can affect various organ systems, including the lungs, heart, brain, and other organs .

4. Virus variants

The SARS-CoV-2 virus has developed several variants, some of which are classified as of concern. These variants can lead to increased transmissibility, more severe disease progression, or a reduction in the effectiveness of vaccines and treatments.

5. Burden on the healthcare system

Especially in severe cases, COVID-19 disease can lead to an increased need for medical care. This brings with it a strain on hospitals and the healthcare system, which can affect the care of other medical emergencies.

6. Long-term effects

The pandemic has long-term effects on society, the economy and everyday life. Restrictions and lockdowns have a lasting negative impact on people's quality of life and well-being.

Although vaccinations and measures such as wearing a mask and social distancing help contain the spread of COVID-19, the risk of corona infection should not be underestimated. The price of such isolation is also high in many respects.
