Admin Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Science and Nature

What is Corona Virus Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing. Symptoms of CoronaVirus

People may be sick with the virus for 1 to 14 days before developing symptoms. The most common symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. More rarely, the disease can be serious and even fatal. Older people, and people with other medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease), may be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill. People may experience: cough fever tiredness difficulty breathing (severe cases) How This Coronavirus Spreads Human coronaviruses cause infections of the nose, throat and lungs. They are most commonly spread from an infected person through: 1. Respiratory droplets generated when you cough or sneeze 2. Close, prolonged personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands 3. Touching something with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands 4. Current evidence suggests person-to-person spread is efficient when there is close contact. Prevention of the CoronaVirus 1. Try as much as possible to wash your hands with soap and water (or alcohol-based hand rub) regularly for at least 15-25 seconds

2. Always cover your nose and mouth using tissue or flexed elbow whenever you cough or sneeze

3. Try as much as possible to avoid close contact with anyone that is a suspect

4. If you feel that you are not well, isolate yourself from your household 5. Isolate yourself from public areas 6. Avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes if your hands are not clean 7. Wear a facemask if you are sick: If you are sick, you should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick. If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers. Treatment for CoronaVirus There is no specific medicine to prevent or treat coronavirus disease (COVID-19). People may need supportive care to help them breathe. Self care If you have mild symptoms, stay at home until you’ve recovered. You can relieve your symptoms if you: rest and sleep keep warm drink plenty of liquids use a room humidifier or take a hot shower to help ease a sore throat and cough Medical treatments If you develop a fever, cough, and have difficulty breathing, promptly seek medical care. Call in advance and tell your health provider of any recent travel or recent contact with travelers. Please comment by adding possible solution, prevention and cure. Together we can fight this through God that strengthen us. Amen
