COVID_19: So you have heard about the virus called COVID-19, you are probably wondering what it is and how can it hurt me?
The COVID_19 disease is caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2. It is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 that was never previously identified in humans. Coronaviruses are a family of viruses and they are considered are zoonotic. Therefore they are transmitted between animals and people.
The outbreak started in Wuhan China and it has spread across to several countries. Currently, the COVID 19 virus has spread to Italy, The UK, America, The Caribbean, Canada, Ireland, and several other countries. China and Italy so far as been hit the worst and the death in Italy keeps rising daily.
Persons with an underlying medical condition or the elderly are at a greater risk of dying from the virus. China has started to recover from the virus but other countries are struggling to contain the outbreak. But we should know that COVID_19 does not have to be a death sentence.
Tips For Keeping Safe
- The first step in ensuring your safety is washing your hands often. Our hands touch everything and viruses are spread through hand to hand contact. If an infected person touches a door handle and you unknowingly touch the same door handle, there is a possibility that the virus can spread.
- This one is a bit to avoid but we should not touch our hands, face, mouth, and eyes. The virus enters our bodies through these parts of the body.
