10 Questions and Answers Related to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
1. How does the Coronavirus virus spread (COVID-19)?
- Shortness of breath spreads after coughing or sneezing
- The virus touches the surfaces contaminated and then touches the mouth
Both. The virus communicates directly with the infected person’s respiratory tract (cough and sneezing) and reaches the surface contaminated by the virus and then touches the mouth, nose and eyes.
2. Can I Get Coronavirus (COVID-19) from My Pets?
There is no scientific evidence to suggest that pets, such as dogs and cats, can spread the virus that can cause COVID-19.
3. What are the best ways to protect yourself from coronavirus infection (Covid-1)?
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Avoid close contact with anyone with symptoms of colds or flu
- Avoid touching faces
- Of all kinds
All kinds of above. And if we all have symptoms (fever, cough, dyspnea), we need to contribute to limit the spread of the disease by requesting advance treatment care. We should stay indoors and avoid going to public places until the symptoms appear. Cough or take in an elbow crease or napkin, immediately remove the used towel and wash your hands immediately.
4. Who is infected with coronavirus disease (COVID-1)?
- The elder
- Young men
Everyone. The virus can infect people of all ages, and they need to be taken care of to protect themselves, wash their hands repeatedly with soap and water. Older individuals and those with any previous treatment condition (such as asthma, diabetes and heart problems among others) are more likely to become infected with the virus, and the disease can be fatal.
5. What is the percentage of alcohol in the hand-sanitizer solution required to kill coronavirus (COVID-19)?
An effective hand sanitizer solution should contain at least 60% alcohol to eliminate germs.
6. Is there a specific vaccine or drug to prevent or treat coronavirus disease (COVID-19)?
No. There are currently no specific vaccines or drugs to prevent or cure the disease. Researchers are currently working on a vaccine. However, it is important to note that many symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) can be treated and improve the outcomes of early access to medical care. Most patients recover after receiving therapy.
7. How long should you wash your hands to kill coronavirus (COVID-19)?
- 5 seconds
- 15 seconds
- 20 seconds
At least 20 seconds – that’s when you need to sing “Happy Birthday” twice. After coughing or sneezing and using the toilet, wash your hands frequently with soap and water, especially before meals.
8. Is coronavirus disease (COVID-1) like influenza?
No Coronavirus disease (COVID-1) and influenza are two different infectious diseases caused by different viruses. Although both respiratory diseases are infected with the same type (through respiratory distress) and may give similar symptoms (fever, cough, indigestion), they have different characteristics. For example, contrary to diseases caused by a coronavirus (COVID-1), influenza is a vaccine – and currently has a flu season in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore, to prevent the flu (and to prevent its symptoms that may be confused with COVID-19), it is important to prevent the flu in addition to updating all other vaccines.
9. Can coronavirus (COVID-19) be transmitted at both high and low temperatures?
Yes. The virus spreads both high and cold. It is not yet known if seasonal weather and temperature changes will affect coronavirus proliferation (COVID-19). Some viruses, such as those caused by common colds and flu, are more prevalent in the cold months, but you can be infected with these viruses even in the hot months. However, we know that only winter weather and snow cannot kill coronavirus (COVID-19). And a hot bath can’t help prevent coronavirus infection!
10. Can Coronovirus corrupt letters, products and packages?
Yes. If you live in an area where the coronavirus is infected locally, it is important to be careful when touching objects or surfaces that are in contact with other people, as they may be infected by the virus. Before handling or opening, clean the surface of the package with a disinfectant/disinfectant wipe and discard the packaging in a box with a bin lid. And immediately wash your hands with soap and water or clean them with alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Consult the data provided by national or local authorities to get up-to-date information about the spread of the virus to the area in which you live.
