Coronaviruses primarily affect animals and rarely evolve to infect humans or spread from person to person. However, it can happen in some cases.
Remember the SARS epidemic of 2002-2003 or the MERS epidemic of 2012 (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome)? These are caused by the coronavirus, and the infection is thought to occur through respiratory droplets of the infected person. This means that during these outbreaks, in particular, viruses were transmitted.
- Direct sneezing, coughing, or direct droplets sprayed into the air when talking and maybe transmitted without close physical contact.
- Indirect objects contaminated by infected persons (door handles, mobile phones, computer keyboards, TV remote controls, etc.).
Human outbreaks have been identified in the current outbreak in China, but it is unknown how such infections might occur. But this is not the cause of the panic. Authorities monitor the situation, investigate viruses, and update this topic daily through communication. Keep calm and follow the instructions of the DGS and use some etiquette rules to prevent the spread of the virus, especially when traveling to infected areas.
- Avoid close contact with patients with respiratory infections.
- Avoid contact with farms and wildlife.
- Cooked meat and eggs.
- Perform normal procedures to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.
- o Wash your hands frequently.
- o Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing (use disposable paper towels-throw away in trash after use-or use arms)
Travelers from China, especially those who have been to the affected area: If you have symptoms of respiratory illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing) during or after travel, call SNS 24 (808 24 24 24) Or seek medical assistance.
