What Is Coronavirus?
The newest strain of deadly flu – the coronavirus – continues its relentless march across the U.S. population, carrying with it another brand-new plague: possibly dangerous urban legends and myths about COPD, spread through the web. You might have heard of some of these false stories, which if followed could at worst mean wasted time or worse – make you even sicker. The most widespread and troubling of these urban legends concerns the possibility that hand washroom cleanliness can cause death. This is untrue. In fact, the very opposite is true.
First, the purpose of hand washing is not to cause death. It’s simply a precaution against the spread of a dangerous virus like HIV/AIDS. Any form of protection against the spreading of bacteria is an important public health move designed to reduce the risk of transmitting this disease. And while the specific virus that causes AIDS cannot be spread in a typical work environment, medical surveillance for people who regularly come into contact with a particular strain of this virus is advisable, especially for those whose daily life is highly urbanized and full of contact with public health risks. Therefore, hand washing is not a frivolous thing, nor is it an unnecessary hindrance to an otherwise healthy lifestyle.
Second, there is no such thing as a “cure” for COPD. A cure refers to the stoppage of an infection, not preventing it from recurring. The symptoms of COPD are chronic cough with or without blood, breath odor, fatigue, memory problems, limited ability to tolerate normal physical activities, sleep problems, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, vomiting and fever. These symptoms can persist for years.
And the best way to prevent these symptoms from coming up again is through daily use of face masks. COPD patients should wear a face mask everyday during the hours when they are exposed to outside air. If a person works outside or works at night, a respiratory protection mask should be worn all day, especially in the area of the nose, mouth and nose. A simple solution is to wash any disposable masks in hot water and bleach before replacing them for the next day.
And even though there is no known cure for COPD, many people are encouraged to protect themselves by wearing a face mask. If no such protection is used, the virus can easily enter the body through the nose or mouth, causing illness. This is why it is especially important to use hand wash stations wherever possible. Hand washing can prevent a person from getting the disease in the first place, but if no protection is used, then other measures must be taken.
There are many ways to protect yourself, both from the public and from the disease. Those who are diagnosed with coronavirus should also take care to look after their health to try and keep it from progressing. Those who do not wish to buy a face mask or a hand wash station for themselves should take advice from a doctor or nurse to find ways in which they can protect themselves. They may just need to find ways in which they can stop buying masks and hand wash stations.
Using disposable gloves while washing the dishes is one of the simplest ways to prevent dry skin and hands. This is because using disposable gloves when washing the dishes means that the hands are less likely to touch the dish and transfer the bacteria to the mouth and throat. Similarly, they can also be used when drying off the body. By drying off the body in a bathroom rather than outdoors, the chances of getting the disease in the first place are greatly reduced. But it’s also advisable to wash the hands thoroughly with soap and water before doing anything else, just to make sure there are no traces of the disease on them.
Another simple way of preventing the disease is to use a hand dryer when drying off the body rather than using the oven or a washing machine. The reason why it’s more advisable to use a hand dryer is that the heat from the device can actually get the moisture out of the skin on the hands, which can make matters worse. If the person does end up contracting Coronavirus through contact with an infected person or a contaminated object, a doctor may recommend that a sore fluid to be injected into the hand to help fight off the infection. Another option doctors may suggest is to use a combination of antibacterial liquid and ointment to fight off the infection. The most effective of these treatments are the combinations that contain either amoxicillin or penicillin G.
