Corona Virus – Clinical Manifestations
Corona Virus is the common name for what is known as the Equine Teratoid Virus (ETV). Corona virus particles are highly infectious and the infection can be spread to humans by physical contact, and even through secretions of the anus. Corona virus particles are oval shaped and are composed mainly of a protein called porophyll. This protein is found in the outer layer of the hoof’s bone, which is the same protein that is found in natural earthenware. In horses, this protein is found in the outer portion of the hooves, and it can cause severe hoof and joint pain as well as inflammation of the skin and the respiratory passages.
Corona virus has the ability to cause various kinds of negative clinical manifestations. Some of these include fever, high temperature, severe acute respiratory syndrome, and equine encephalitis. The virus can also cause serious acute respiratory syndrome (P ARIS), which is a life-threatening condition that results in irreversible damage to the central nervous system and fatal respiratory failure. However, most people who show mild to moderate symptoms are not diagnosed with Corona. Corona often affects cattle, including horses and donkeys, causing equine EMT syndrome. However, the disease can affect any individual, and there is no special flagging period recommended for any manifestation of the disease.
The median age of patients with Corona was 35 years (range, 12-year-olds), and the median case fatality rate was 11%. Most patients had multiple symptoms and died from acute respiratory syndrome within 3 months. Fourteen patients, out of an estimated total of 615 cases, had positive clinical manifestations. The disease did not spread to other animals or individuals. There were no further cases of Corona virus infection until July of 2021. During this time, five healthy horses were diagnosed with Corona virus infection, and each of them was transmitted to two more horses.
A total of 469 patients were diagnosed with Corona during the duration of the study period. The clinical manifestations included a fever, malaise, and lethargy or decreased appetite, a decrease in blood pressure, and persistent cough. Some patients had mild dyspnea, pharyngitis, and bronchitis. One horse had pneumonia, one had pneumonia secondary to the pneumonitis and not pneumonia, and one had cardiomyopathy, and was diagnosed as having Corona virus disease 2021 (covid-19).
An analysis of the digital imaging scan results showed a consistent picture of the pneumonia and related clinical manifestations. Analysis revealed that all the patients with ct abnormalities had positive result on the chest radiography (figure below). On further investigation, these positive results were attributed to the detection of a virus that was potentially pathogenic in nature. The Nucleic acid hybridization analysis confirmed that the nucleic acid from the retrovirus matched those found in a patient’s Enterovir-Cab virus (VEC).
The consistent ct scan results confirmed the importance of the detection of this potential carcinogen. The consistent positive result provided the basis for the hospital’s aggressive viral therapy strategy, which commenced on the second day of diagnosis. Patients infected with Corona virus should be placed under medical surveillance and monitored regularly with radiological examinations. Patients that do not exhibit improvement or progression of their infections should be treated with an alternate protocol. If the patient’s illness is associated with pneumonia associated with other respiratory diseases, additional procedures should be considered.
