Keep yourself safe by following these precautionary steps to ward off Coronavirus

Do not ignore the symptoms and stay updated at all times!

The COVID-19 or Novel Coronavirus is a disease that has taken the entire world by storm. The international epidemic has made its way into India and it is highly crucial to keep a tab on the situation around and how you can keep yourself safe amidst all the chaos.

In these days and times, it is easy to get swamped away by loads of fake reports that don't paint the right picture. So, we've compiled everything here for you folks- all you need to know about the virus and how you and your loved ones can stay safe.

How did it come into existence?

While the outbreak first began in China, the threat has spread internationally. The epidemic seems to have emerged from the wet markets in Wuhan, China. As per reports, the wet market sells live and dead animals such as fish, birds and bats, which are the cause of the virus.

Coronavirus is a family of virus that is known to cause diseases in animals. From the wet market in Wuhan, which is densely packed, the virus was transmitted from a bat to one human and so on. All over the world, there are more than 1,82,000 people infected. All from a market in Wuhan.

What's the situation in India?

In India, coronavirus cases have been on the rise since the past week or so, although the major chunk of infected patients seem to have come from Italy and Europe, where the situations are quite severe.

In our country right now, there are 126 total cases, three of which have been fatal. However, it must be noted that the virus is only severely fatal for children, old people and basically anyone with a weak immune system. At the same time, this doesn't mean that the rest of us shouldn't take precautions.

Symptoms and precautions

Since the coronavirus has been declared a pandemic, it is important to understand the symptoms of the disease as well as the precautionary methods that must be taken.

Some of the most common symptoms of SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) are:

  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Breathing issues (in severe cases)

On the surface, the symptoms seem much like the common cold. However, if you are experiencing any of these discomforts, the viable thing to do would be to consult a doctor.

The best precautions that you can take are to keep yourself away from crowded areas as well as dirty places. Here are three important preventive tips:

  • While sanitizing your hands is the best way to ward the virus off, make sure you use alcohol based sanitizers.
  • When coughing or sneezing, make sure to cover your mouth with a tissue and throw the tissue after one use.
  • Quarantine yourself if you feel even a bit under the weather.
  • Avoid close contact with those facing the above mentioned symptoms.

How has it impacted the world?

Since the virus has turned into an international epidemic, the global consequences have been quite heavy. The global market as well as the economy is taking a huge hit due to the international lockdowns and what not. All over the globe, schools, colleges and offices have been shut down to prevent the spread of the virus.

Regarding the virus, there have been many myths as well. However, it is important to do your research before falling for fake news and tactics. One of the many rumours that have been making the rounds, states that the virus will be affected by the summer weather but that is not the case.

Knock Knock

The corona virus is spread mainly through contact, which is why there is an almost international quarantine across the world. How can you help? All you have to do is to take the simple precautions. At any rate, we urge you folks to stay safe out there and take the necessary precautions.
