How to Protect Yourself and Your Family From the Infection – Coronavirus
The spread of coronavirus from person to person and from one household to another has been described as a silent pandemic. The virus is difficult to eliminate because it does not have any symptoms, or its symptoms are very mild; therefore it is highly contagious and transmitted without a person even knowing they have contracted the disease.
The majority of people who contract the infection will feel no symptoms for several weeks; the first sign being flu like symptoms. After this initial period of flu like symptoms the illness becomes a more serious condition that can cause respiratory problems, muscle aches, fever, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, an elevated temperature, and breathing difficulties. Some symptoms of a person with the infection will be similar to a common cold or flu, but there are symptoms that are different.
A case is diagnosed diagnosis when there is some form of evidence to support the diagnosis of the illness. In many cases the illness does not cause any symptoms, but the person does exhibit signs and symptoms that are very similar to a common cold or flu. This is one of the reasons why it is important to take care when handling and preparing food.
The most commonly infected areas of the body are the face, eyes, nose, and mouth. The nose, throat, and ear linings are also highly susceptible to the virus. The initial sign is usually a runny nose, which could progress to a headache, sore throat, ear pain, a fever, and more.
To prevent the spread of the infection, it is important to practice good hand washing. In areas where the virus is prevalent, using a soap and water cleanser in hand washing is encouraged. Unfortunately there are many cases where the virus is still able to transmit through these products. Also hand-wash stations should be used at grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and in public areas, since these are the places most frequented by people with the infection.
The next step is to use face masks when going to public places. This is important because face masks will help to prevent people from coughing and sneezing and spreading the infection through the air. Many hospitals and nursing homes use face masks on patients with respiratory illnesses.
Use of handwash stations is encouraged in health care facilities and other areas where there are more chances of coming into contact with the virus. The handwash stations should be used for three separate rooms, as most people do not wash their hands thoroughly.
When a person is experiencing high levels of anxiety or frustration, they are more likely to contract the virus, so it is very important to make sure that the hand wash stations are used. The stations are available in different styles and colors, so it is easy to find one that fits the health facility or the patient’s room. The stations come with a special disinfectant that will help prevent the spread of the virus if used by people with the infection.
With the hand-wash stations that are available in various sizes it is easy to find one that will fit the space that is available in the hospital. The size that will work best in the patient’s room may depend on the area that they will be using it in.
It is also important to keep the area around the stations clean so that the virus cannot be spread by people touching the station. Cleaning the stations twice a day is highly recommended so that the stations do not become a breeding ground for the virus.
When caring for a patient with the infection, it is important to practice proper hand washing techniques and use a face mask to prevent the spread of the infection. All patients and staff should know how to use the hand-wash stations properly, so that there are no missed opportunities to prevent the spread of the virus.
While the virus is not the same in all people, it is a fairly common infection and should not be taken lightly. If you think that you have the virus, it is important to get checked out by a doctor to make sure that the virus is not a problem before it gets worse.
