COVID-19 Attorney in Los Angeles

Focused on Helping People Endure This Crisis

Until late February 2020, most of what the majority of the public knew about COVID-19 was that it was an illness first identified in China that was infecting a growing number of people around the world. By the end of March, a worldwide pandemic had been declared, non-essential businesses ceased operations, and nearly everyone in the U.S. was strongly advised if not ordered to stay at home.

A lot about the world looks different right now as society struggles to fight a deadly pathogen and curb its infection rate. Slowing that rate means less strain on limited healthcare resources and protecting healthcare workers from becoming overwhelmed or infected themselves. This can have implications for HIPAA privacy protocol and other legal matters that concern those affected by COVID-19.

What Exactly Is COVID-19?

There are a few words that are often being repeated or mistaken for one another during this crisis, so let’s set the record straight. COVID-19 is the name for an infectious disease caused by a novel (new) strain of coronavirus. That virus has since been designated as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

While it’s not inaccurate to say “COVID-19 is caused by the coronavirus,” it’s important to note that a coronavirus is so-named because of its shape – it looks like a crown, which is what “corona” means in Latin – and there are multiple strains that include MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and SARS-CoV 1, which is better known for its outbreak nearly 20 years ago.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent chest pain
  • New sense of confusion
  • Bluish tint in lips or face

The latter four of these conditions are considered severe and medical intervention should be immediately sought to deal with them. For a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends staying at home or consulting with a healthcare provider.

For more information about COVID-19 and the new coronavirus that causes it, visit the CDC online.
