The deadly coronavirus is spreading across the World. As of 4th March 2020, around 3,190 people have lost their lives to this virus and over 93,000 people have been infected in more than 80 countries.
Coronavirus has cost the lives of 2,981 in China alone and 80,270 people have been infected there. When it comes to India, 28 people have tested positive for coronavirus. Out of these 28 cases, 16 are Italian citizens. Coronaviruses belong to a family of viruses which are known to spread diseases ranging from cold to MERS and SARS.
This coronavirus normally spreads through person-to-person contact within a 6-foot radius. An infected person spreads the virus via coughing and sneezing. The droplets from the nose spread the virus.
As this virus is spreading all over the World, people are panicking and want to know how to protect themselves. In this blog, we will discuss how to stay safe from coronavirus.
1. Wash your hands often
You must wash your hands with soap and water or use a alcohol-based hand rub. This helps in killing the viruses.
2. Maintain distance
It is advisable to maintain distance from people who are coughing or sneezing. This is because viruses normally spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes. If you are too close, you may catch the virus.
3. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose
Viruses can even spread through cough droplets landing on surfaces. Your hands touch a lot of surfaces and pick up the coronavirus. You are prone to disease on touching your nose and mouth.
4. Cover your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing
It is good to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue while coughing or sneezing. Make sure to dispose the tissue in the right way.
5. Seek early medical care
If you have a cough, fever or difficulty in breathing, seek medical care as soon as possible. In such a case you must share travel history with your local health authority for the safety and security of other people.
6. Follow advice
To protect yourself from the coronavirus, you must follow the advice offered by the healthcare provider or your local health authority.
7. Use a face mask for protection
Using a face mask offers protection to a certain extent as they block the droplets. Masks will not block smaller aerosol particles which can pass through the mask.
