What Is Coronavirus? How Is Human Coronavirus Transmitted?
The coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a virus that produces flu-like symptoms and respiratory illness. Coronavirus transmission occurs primarily through close contact with an infected person (close contact is defined as being within six feet of each other). The virus is spread mostly through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes on another person. You may also contract the virus by touching a surface or object an infected person has touched and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Studies are still emerging, but it’s believed the virus may be able to survive on a surface for as long as 17 days.
What Steps Can You Take to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus?
Protect yourself and others from coronavirus transmission by avoiding close contact with others, especially those who are sick and who may have been exposed to the virus already. Practice frequent handwashing for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water or use hand sanitizer that’s at least 60% alcohol when soap and water are not easily accessible. Refrain from touching your face with unwashed hands. You should also be disinfecting communal surfaces in your home or office, including doorknobs, light switches, faucets, toilets, phones, keyboards, and other objects that are touched frequently by more than one person. You may use standard household cleaners or dilute your own mixture of bleach to disinfect surfaces in your home or office. However, if you do own or manage a vast commercial or industrial property, your best bet is to hire a professional cleaning company such as Excel Industrial Group for a thorough, deep cleaning that meets the CDC’s stringent sanitization criteria.
What Are Signs of Infection or Common Coronavirus Symptoms?
Signs of infection or coronavirus symptoms may vary from person to person. The most common symptoms of coronavirus include fever, body aches, coughs, nasal congestion, and sore throat. These symptoms may also be associated with the common cold, other flus, and pneumonia. More severe symptoms may include shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure, a persistent cough, and high fever. Some people may not experience any coronavirus symptoms at all, which is why the CDC is urging people to practice the concept of “social distancing” and avoid large public gatherings.
What You Should Do If You Exhibit Coronavirus Symptoms
If you experience any of the symptoms associated with the human coronavirus, you are urged to contact your doctor for additional medical advice. Do not visit your doctor’s office or the nearest hospital without alerting them that you’re on your way first. They must take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and other patients in their office. Facemasks must be worn by those who are sick and those who are caring for the sick to lower the risk of coronavirus transmission.
Who’s Most at Risk for Developing Complications from Coronavirus?
Anyone is at risk for contracting and spreading the human coronavirus, but severe complications from the illness are believed to be more common among the older adult population and those with underlying medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease. If you’re in these higher-risk groups, you’re encouraged to stay home except to receive medical care or to get essential supplies.
Why Are the CDC’s Coronavirus Isolation Precautions Necessary?
Limiting social contact in public is the best defense to stop the spread of the human coronavirus. Many U.S. states have now issued stay at home orders, unless your business is considered “essential”, to help enforce the CDC’s isolation precautions. If everyone does their part to implement these isolation precautions, we can hopefully curb the spread of the virus, so we can all return to normal, day-to-day functions soon.
