SARS-CoV-2 Medidas de prevenção Isolamento social Contágio


A pandemia de COVID-19 teve impactos profundos que desencadeou uma série de consequências que afetaram a sociedade em diversas esferas. Deste modo, o objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar o conhecimento dos estudantes de graduação sobre vírus e os sintomas do COVID-19, analisar as medidas de prevenção adotadas, as sequelas mais comuns e verificar o conhecimento sobre as vacinas aprovadas. A análise foi por meio de aplicação de questionário on-line disponibilizado pelo GoogleForms. Diante da análise das respostas, maioria dos participantes são da área de Ciências Biológicas e possuem conhecimento sobre vírus. A pandemia resultou em um aumento significativo no número de internações, e a identificação precoce dos sintomas do COVID-19, como falta de ar, perda de olfato e febre, é fundamental para reduzir a disseminação do vírus e aliviar a pressão sobre o sistema de saúde. O uso de máscaras e o isolamento social foram amplamente adotados como medidas de prevenção. As sequelas mais comuns do COVID-19 foram identificadas nas áreas pulmonar, psicológica e neurológica. As vacinas desempenharam um papel importante na redução do contágio e controle da disseminação do vírus, sendo a aceitação da vacinação uma estratégia crucial no enfrentamento da COVID-19.
