WHO has declared Coronavirus as Pandemic. We shouldn’t get panic with this new virus. I’m sharing few precautions shared by WHO and renowned doctors which if followed helps us to fight Coronavirus.
Symptoms of Coronavirus The virus can cause pneumonia-like symptoms. Those who have fallen ill have reported to suffer coughs, fever and breathing difficulties. Please rush to doctor if you notice such symptoms. In severe cases there can be organ failure. As this is viral pneumonia, antibiotics are of no use. Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system.
Prevention is better than cure
Maintain 1m distance from people. Don’t shake hands to greet your friends instead say Namaste.
Maintain hygiene The best way to protect yourself against the new Coronavirus is by frequently cleaning your hands with sanitizer or washing them with soap and water. By doing this you eliminate virus that may be on your hands and avoid infections that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
Avoid crowd It would be advisable to avoid gatherings. If going out and get in touch with people is necessary then wear N95 mask or surgical mask. Those masks can effectively prevent virus. Often wash your hands. Immunity is the best weapon against virus now, so keep your immunity system in good status.
