Public Health Campaign on the Spread of the Coronavirus
A highly contagious virus that is related to the flu has been identified as the cause of the death of an American soldier in the Middle East. This virus is known as the “covariant” virus because it has the capability to spread from one person to another. The virus was first identified in a patient who suffered from complications of the flu.
The virus spreads through the respiratory system. It can be transmitted through coughing and sneezing. The virus can also enter through the nose and mouth, but has a higher risk of infection. While the risk of infection for this virus is relatively low, it can cause serious complications in the short term.
As the symptoms of the virus’s symptoms develop, they tend to progress rapidly. There are two separate types of the disease; acute respiratory infection and severe acute respiratory infection. The former type is the type of the virus that infects the patient. The latter is a complication that is caused by the virus.
If the person is already suffering from a mild case of the disease, it will result in a milder form of the disease. The disease however, does not affect the elderly or the young. A large number of the patients infected with the virus tend to have higher susceptibility for developing severe illness. High fever, cough, breathing problems, vomiting and diarrhoea are some of the common symptoms of the coronavirus.
A medical emergency is the primary symptom of the virus. The patients may suffer from apnea (shortness of breath), pneumonia, and influenza.
One of the most important ways of preventing the spread of the virus is through hand wash. Hands should be washed in chlorinated water as soon as possible after coming into contact with other people or objects that may have the virus.
Although there is no extreme danger of being killed by the virus, the disease can be life threatening. The mortality rate is high. Although there is no immunity to the disease, early diagnosis can give prompt treatment.
It is still unknown what causes the virus to be so contagious. Since it is a recent virus, its ability to remain contagious cannot be determined. The only thing that is certain is that early detection is a necessity to counter the disease.
Hand hygiene should be improved to prevent the spread of the virus. People who are sick or injured, are immunocompromised, pregnant women, people who have weak immune systems, and people who have just had the flu should ensure that their hands are cleaned after contact with people. People who do not know how to use the toilet should also practice hand washing.
People should also use hand sanitizers to counter the effects of a medical emergency. The hand sanitizer should be applied liberally on the affected areas of the skin. It is essential to avoid touching your eyes and nose with dirty hands.
In addition, they should wear a face mask to protect their lungs from infection. The face mask should be used whenever coughing or sneezing and the people should practice positive pressure ventilation. The infected person should not be exposed to any source of infection.
Preventing the spread of the virus is still possible with a proper public health campaign. Properly implemented education campaigns may help in decreasing the number of people infected by the virus.
