The Advices About Coronavirus You Need To Follow

  • It’s pretty large in size (cell is about 400-500nm diameter), so any normal face mask would be able to filter it out. However, when someone who’s infected sneezes in front of you, it will take a great 10 feet (3 meters) before it drops to the ground without no longer airborne.
  • When the virus drops on the metal surface, it will live for at least 12 hours. That means if you have contact with a metal surface like a door handle, wash your hands with soap thoroughly.
  • The virus can remain active on fabric for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent should kill the virus. For winter clothing that does not require daily washing, you can put it out under the sun to kill the virus.

The Symptoms Of pneumonia caused by Coronavirus

  • The virus will first infect the throat, so the throat will have the dry sore throat feeling, it can last 3-4 days.
  • Then the virus will blend into the nasal fluid and drips into the trachea and enter the lungs, causing pneumonia. This procedure will take 5-6 days.
  • With pneumonia, comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You would feel like you are drowning in water. It’s important to go seek immediate medical assistance.

How To Prevent Coronavirus

  • The most common way of getting infected is by touching things in public. Please wash your hands frequently. The virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes. However, people can do a lot things in 5-10 minutes, like rub your eyes or pick your nose unwittingly.
  • Take extra care and drink plenty of water.
