The COVID-19 infections show very similar symptoms with the other flu and influenza diseases. The incubation period lasts from 2 to 14 days in the host body. If any of the signs are left untreated, the person might die with illness. Some of the other lesser degrees of symptoms involve joint pains and body aches, skin rashes and its discolouration, conjunctivitis, diarrhoea, no taste or odour of anything and fatigue.
With the outrageous spread of the Coronavirus worldwide, the essential thing a person can undergo is to prevent himself from the deadly virus. It is well said that prevention is better than cure after all. These measures should be followed by any individual to protect themselves or others from the virus.
Now, it can survive for long periods of time in the air and on surfaces, where one can contract it. Follow these simple precautions to reduce the chance of infection from coronavirus.
Washing hands with appropriate soap is the key for prevention of infections. Hand washing with the soap removes germs, virus particles and dirt effectively. According to the WHO, hand hygiene shows a significant result in decreasing the rate of infection of COVID-19. You can follow these simple steps to wash your hands properly.
Alcohol-based hand sanitizers (containing at least 60% alcohol) help prevent the spread of germs and viruses. Hand sanitizer is needed to be used when soap and water are not available. It includes public transport (plane, train or bus) as well. Carrying a pocket-friendly bottle of hand sanitizer makes it easier to disinfect your hands in these types of situations. Apply a small drop of hand sanitizer to your palms and rub it on both hands, front and back, and fingertips.
Social distancing is the main strategy used to prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. As its name implies, it calls for people to increase the space between them and avoid meetings and crowds.
Many Public Health Experts and Government Officials are asking us to follow the physical distancing to break the chain and prevent the spread of COVID- 19. Physical distancing is something that means avoiding close physical contact with others to stop the spread of COVID-19.
The reason behind social distancing is to avoid a large increase in COVID-19 cases that will put too much pressure on our health care system all at once. If all become ill at the same time, the hospital will be overflown, and will not have the capacity to provide necessary treatment to all.
In these pandemic times when schools and colleges as well as offices are closed, even many events got postponed but the hospitals are always open. So we should thank and care for our health-care workers.
