CORONA VIRUS

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

CORONAVIRUSES are a large group of viruses that are common among animals. In rare cases, they are what scientists call zoonotic, meaning they can be transmitted from animal to humans.

The viruses can make people sick, usually with a mild to moderate upper respiratory tract illness, similar to common cold.

HOW IT SPREADS

Human coronavirus most commonly spread from an infected person to others through:

      1.      The air by coughing and sneezing

      2.      Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands

      3.      Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands.

      4.      Rarely, fecal contamination

SYMPTOMS

§  Runny nose

§  Headache

§  Cough

§  Sore throat

§  Fever

§  Feeling of being unwell

For those with a weakened immune system, the elderly and the very young, there’s a chance the virus could cause a lower, and much more serious, respiratory tract illness like a pneumonia or bronchitis.

PREVENTION

There are currently no vaccines available to protect your against human coronavirus inection.

Transmission is reduced thru:

§  Washing your hands often with soap and water

§  Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands

§  Avoiding close contact with people who are sick

If you are mildly sick, keep yourself  hydrated, stay at home

If you are concerned about your symptoms, you should see your healthcare provider.
