Corona viruses 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) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome also referred to as SARS.
A novel coronavirus is simply a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. The coronavirus disease COVID 19 was first reported from Wuhan in China, on 31 December 2019. Coronaviruses are zoonotic meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.
► Most important thing is to not panic and be educated on the risks posed by COVID 19
The most common symptoms of COVID 19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Note that about 80% recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID 19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing
Older people, and those with existing problems like high blood pressure or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. Only about 2% of people with the disease have died.
In order to protect yourself and your family, make sure you do the following:
► Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. This helps kill viruses that may be on your hands
► Maintain at least 1 metre or 3 feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
► Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth because once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth
► Make sure you, and the people around you cover their mouth and nose with bent elbow or tissue when they cough or sneeze
► Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance
► If you develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical advice promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition
To date, there is no vaccine or antiviral medicine to prevent or treat COVID 19. Those affected should receive care to relieve symptoms. Possible vaccines are under investigation and are being tested through clinical trials
People with no symptoms do not need to wear a medical mask. The use of masks is recommended for people who have symptoms of COVID 19 and for those caring for individuals who have symptoms, such as cough and fever
Antibiotics do not work against viruses, they only work on bacterial infections. COVID 19 is caused by a virus, so antibiotics do not work
We hope you found the information in this video helpful
Remember, the most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID 19 are to frequently clean your hands, cover your cough and maintain a distance of at least 1 meter or 3 feet from people who are coughing or sneezing.
