Covid-19

The deadly coronavirus had started spreading in Wuhan, China ever since December 2019. This virus is known to cause a disease named COVID-19 that has spread rapidly in at least 185 countries. Following are some of the facts and precautions you need to know about this fatal virus.

Facts:

  1. The older people suffering from any serious underlying medical conditions are known to be at a higher risk of being infected by COVID-19.

  2. To date, there is no evidence that wildlife, pets or livestock can transmit the fatal disease to a human. Studies are still going on to see if a human can pass it on to the pets.

  3. There is a possibility that 70 - 80% of the people may suffer from mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, but still, they may be infected.

  4. Scientists are still trying to come up with a vaccine that can effectively fight the coronavirus. But it will take a long time before it is available to the general public.

Precautions:

  • Wash your hands from time to time with soap and water for around 20 seconds, especially if you had gone outside and also before eating. An alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can also act as an alternative to soap and water to disinfect your hands.

  • When your hands are unwashed, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

  • You should stand maintaining a distance of at least 6-ft with other people and avoid contact with sick people.

  • Stay at home as much as possible.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow, rather than into your hands.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
