COVID-19 (CORONA)  

We are collectively facing a Pandemic threat that is sweeping across the humanity beyond oceans and borders. Considering the seriousness of COVID-19, it's about time we step up against this deadly disease. For the sake of lives lost and the rest of humanity, let us all pledge to beat Corona back.

Acknowledge the issue, care for precautions, act in the best health interests of your society and isolated, yet together, we shall hurt Corona.

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a new recently discovered novel Corona Virus.

How does it transmit?

When a person suffering from this disease sneezes or coughs, a lot of droplets spread in the air or fall on the ground and nearby surfaces. If another person is nearby and inhales the droplets or touches these surfaces and then touches his face, eyes or mouth, he can get the infection. The chances are more if one is within a distance of less than 1 meter from the infected person.

How long does the Corona Virus survive over the surfaces or objects?

It is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other Corona Viruses. Studies suggest that Corona Viruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days.

This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).If you think a surface may be infected, clean it with simple disinfectant to kill the virus and protect yourself and others.

Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose.

How can I protect myself and my family members?

You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions:

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water after coming from outside or after visiting a patient with Corona Virus infection.

Maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.

Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty in breathing, seek medical attention.
