What is coronavirus (COVID-19)
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a communicable disease caused by a new virus.
The disease causes respiratory disease (like the flu) with symptoms like a cough, fever, and in additional severe cases, difficulty breathing.
As per reports, most of the people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory disease and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people and people with underlying medical problems like disorder, diabetes, chronic respiratory illness, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
How coronavirus spreads
Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person once they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when an individual touches a surface or object that has the virus thereon, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.
How can we prevent coronavirus infection
Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses which can get on your hands.
Maintain social distancing
Maintain a minimum of 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing because When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which can contain the virus. If you’re too close, you’ll inhale the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Hands touch many surfaces and may devour viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and should cause you to sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and therefore the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. this suggests covering your mouth and nose alongside your bent elbow or tissue once you cough or sneeze. Then eliminate the used tissue immediately. Droplets spread the virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses like cold, flu and COVID-
we should not be a spreader and should stay at home to keep everyone safe ..
