About Coronavirus

NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

HOW IS THIS PANDEMIC SPREAD

TRANSMISSION OF COVID-19

Via Human Contact

Human Contact

The coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person to person. This can happen between people who are in close contact with one another.

Via Unsanitized Surfaces

Unsanitized Surfaces

A person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.

Via Sneezing

Droplet Infection

The coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person to person. This can happen between people who are in close contact with one another.


HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

PREVENTION AND BEST PRACTICES

Wear a MASK

Wear A Mask

Although N-95 masks are the recommened mask to wear during the coronavirus pandemic, any mask available at your nearest medical store is better than not wearing a mask at all!

Practice Social Distancing

Social Distancing

Stay at home and only go outside if it is very necessary. Avoid meeting other people and maintain 6ft. distance in cases you have to be near others.

Hand Sanitization

Hand Sanitization

Wash your hands for 20 seconds with a handwash or soap and in cases when water and soap are not readily available, use a sanitizer with at least 62% alcohol content.

Say no to touching

Avoid Touching

Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. So, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth and can make you sick.

Via Unsanitized Surfaces

Avoid Crowds

Chances of getting infected by an already ifected person is ten-fold in crowded regions. If your region is under a lockdown, then do not form a crowd or leave your home!

Via Sneezing

Sneeze Responsibly

Snzeeing/Coughing in a handkerchief/tissue is the best practice. In cases when neither is avaiable, sneeze into your elbow to prevent droplet infection to the people around you.


WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS

SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19

Cough/Cold

Dry Cough

This means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).
