The deadly outbreak of Coronavirus in Wuhan, China has turned the world upside down, causing the public extreme paranoia over the virus. The virus is already erratic, but stopping your paranoia and actually do something to protect yourself is actually better than become a martyr of your own thoughts.
The fear of Coronavirus outpaces the prices of stocks. It grows in a blink of an eye and often has less to do with reality. Then, before you dwell with the terror of the virus entering your system, you better understand how the virus transmit to other people and how you can actually block its way coming to your body.
How is the Coronavirus spreading?
Quoted from WHO, Coronavirus are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe disease. It transmits from wild animals to humans and from human to human. It can be transmitted through sneezing, coughing, or any interaction that disperses droplets of body fluids, such as saliva or mucus. It can travel several feet and stay in the air up to 10 mins.
Stop your paranoia by focusing on the prevention
There are so many articles about the deaths that can upsurge your fear, but what you truly need to do, is focusing yourself on the prevention, such as:
Ensure yourself and your loved ones, to never forget wash their hand thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol—if soap and water are not available. Pay attention to this, especially after using the public transportation or touching door handles in public buildings.
Wear N95 or surgical mask when you’re around people with flu—but still take a good distance with them is probably better.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze with a tissue, and dispose it to the trash bin.
Clean and disinfect the touched objects and surfaces.
Though there’s still not a vaccine found for the disease, we can still try our best to keep ourselves protected. So, be well and stay healthy.
