The World Health Organization (WHO) explains, Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV2 virus.
Most people infected with the virus will experience mild, moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. However, some people will become seriously ill and require medical treatment. Older people and people with underlying medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, or cancer are more likely to develop severe illness. COVID-19 can also cause patients to become seriously ill and die at any age.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to get the right information about the disease and how the virus spreads. Don’t forget to protect yourself and your family from infection with
- maintain a minimum distance of 1 meter from other people,
- wear a mask that fits and is appropriate,
- wash your hands frequently with soap and running water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer .
- get vaccinated according to local guidelines of residence.
The virus can spread from the mouth or nose of an infected person in tiny fluid particles when the person coughs, sneezes, talks, sings, or breathes. These particles range from larger-sized respiratory droplets to smaller aerosols. Therefore, it is important to practice proper cough etiquette, namely cough with bent elbows, stay active at home and isolate yourself (self-isolation) until you recover if you feel unwell. Immediately consult a doctor or the nearest health facility, if the symptoms are felt to increase.
