Generel question about COVID-19 and corona virus

 

The WHO is constantly monitoring and responding to this outbreak. This Q&A will be updated after learning more about Kavid-19, how it spreads and how it affects people worldwide.

Keep an eye on our documentation page to read the updated Q&A episode in the form of documentation and for details

What is the corona virus ?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, a number of coronaviruses range from the common cold to respiratory infections, ranging from the common cold to more serious illnesses such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). It is known to cause. Currently, the main cause of various corona virus diseases is COVID-19.

What is COVID-19 ?

Covid-19 is the most commonly found coronavirus infectious disease. This new virus and disease was unknown before the outbreak began in December 2019 in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19 ?

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, fatigue and dry cough. Some patients may have pain, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and start slowly. Some people become infected but do not develop any symptoms and do not feel sick. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without the need for special treatment. 1 out of every 6 people receiving COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and has difficulty breathing. Older people and those who are already receiving treatment for illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes are more likely to become seriously ill. People with fever, cough and breathing problems should consult a doctor.

How is COVID-19 spread?

A person can be infected with COVID-19 from another person infected with the virus. COVID-19 can be transmitted from one person to another by spraying small drops of liquid from the nose or mouth due to coughing or shortness of breath. After these liquid droplets spread on the object and surface around the person. Other people touch these objects or surfaces, then touch their eyes, nose or mouth and become infected with COVID-19. COVID-19 can be transmitted by a person who breathes in small drops (droplets) except through coughing from a person infected with COVID-19. This is why it is important to stay 1 meter (3 feet) away from the sick person.

Can the COVID-19 virus be transmitted through the air?

To date, research has shown that the virus is the main cause of COVID-19, transmitted through contact with respiratory fluid instead of air. ” COVID-19 And how is transmitted ” See the previous answer

COVID-19 can be transmitted from a person who has no symptoms?

The main way that this disease is spread is by breathing drops or droplets that come out through whooping cough. The risk of getting COVID-19 from someone with no symptoms is very low, however, many people with COVID-19 experience only mild symptoms. This is especially true in the early stages of the disease. Therefore it is possible to be infected with COVID-19 from someone who, for example, does not just feel mild cough and sick. The WHO is evaluating ongoing research during COVID-19 infection and sharing updated results.

Can I get Cavid-19 from the stool of an infected person?

The risk of catching COVID-19 from the feces of an infected person seems to be low. Preliminary investigations have shown that the virus may be present in feces in some cases, not the main feature of this outbreak. The WHO is evaluating ongoing research on how Kovid-19 spread and is sharing new findings. Because it is a risk, however, it is another reason to clean hands regularly after using the bathroom and before eating.

What can I do to protect myself and prevent the spread of the disease?

This episode has been divided into two parts to prevent the spread of the disease and to protect oneself

  1. Security for everyone and
  2. People who have recently visited the area where COVID-19 is spreading or who have visited in the last 14 days

Security for everyone

Be aware of the latest information on COVID-19 outbreaks, on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authorities. Many countries around the world have seen cases of COVID-19 and most have seen its prevalence. Authorities in China and several other countries have managed to slow down or stop their outbreaks. However, the situation is undesirable so visit the website regularly for the latest news.

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

1) Clean your hands regularly and thoroughly with alcohol based hand cleaner or wash with soap and water. Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand cleaner can kill the virus on your hands.

2) Maintain a distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) between yourself and someone who is coughing or sneezing. Why? When someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small drops of liquid from their nose or mouth that may contain the virus. If you are very close, if the coughing person has this disease, you can breathe in drops with the Kavid-19 virus.

3) Avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth. Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up the virus. When contaminated, hands can transmit the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there the virus can enter your body and make you sick.

4) Make sure you and the people around you follow good breathing hygiene. This means covering your face and nose with your curved elbows or tissues when you cough or sneeze. Then immediately discard the used tissues in the lid with a lid. Why? Liquid droplets spread the virus. By following good breathing hygiene you can protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

5) Stay home if you feel sick. If you have fever, cough and breathing problems, consult a doctor and call in advance. Follow the instructions from your local health authority. Why? National and local authorities will have the most up-to-date information about the situation in your area. Calling your healthcare provider in advance will help guide you quickly to the right healthcare facility. This will protect you and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.

6) Stay updated about COVID-19 hotspots (cities or local areas where COVID-19 is widespread). Avoid traveling to places if possible – especially if you are elderly or have diabetes, heart or lung disease. Why? This is because shots in this region are more likely to be infected with COVID-19.

People who have recently visited the area where COVID-19 is spreading or who have visited in the last 14 days

1) Follow the guidelines given above ( safety measures for everyone )

2) If you start feeling sick, even if you have mild symptoms like headache, low grade fever (37.3 centigrade or more) and mild cold, sit at home and become self-isolated (quarantine). If someone delivers your food or other items or needs to go out and buy food then wear gloves and a face mask so that the other person is not infected by you. Why? Avoiding contact with others and taking proper medical measures can help you stay away from different viruses.

3) If you have fever, cough and shortness of breath, consult a doctor immediately as it may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Call in advance and talk to your medical provider if you have had recent travel or contact with passengers. Why? Calling your healthcare provider in advance will quickly lead you to the right healthcare. It will also help prevent the possible spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.

Can I be infected with Covid-19 ?

The risk depends on where you are – and more precisely, whether there is a Kavid-19 outbreak.

The risk of COVID-19 infection is still low in most locations and for most people. However, there are now places around the world (cities or regions) where the disease is spreading. Residents or visitors have a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 in those areas. The government and health authorities are taking drastic action as a new case of COVID-19 has been identified. Be sure to comply with any local restrictions on travel, movement or large gatherings. Collaborating with disease control efforts will reduce your risk of getting infected or spreading COVID-19.

There may be an outbreak of Kavid-19 and the infection may stop, as in China and a few other countries. Unfortunately, new outbreaks can grow rapidly. It is important to be aware of where you want to go in this situation.

Should I worry about Covid-19 ?

Illness due to COVID-19 infection is usually mild, especially in children and adolescents. However, it can cause serious illness: 1 out of every 5 people caught with it needs hospital care. It is natural to worry about how the COVID-19 outbreak will affect them and their loved ones.

We can turn our concerns into action to protect us, our loved ones and our society. The first and foremost of these activities is regular and thorough hand washing and good breathing hygiene. Second, be aware of and follow the advice of the local health authority, including imposing any restrictions on travel, movement and assembly.

Who is most at risk of becoming seriously ill?

Although we are still learning how COVID-2019 is affecting people. Elderly people and other people with pre-existing illnesses (such as high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes) are more likely to become seriously ill than others.

Are antibiotics effective in preventing or treating COVID-19 ?

No. Antibiotics do not work against viruses, they only work for bacterial infections. COVID-19 is caused by a virus, so antibiotics do not work. Antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment of COVID-19. These should only be used according to the doctor’s advice for bacterial infections.

Are there any medications or therapies that can prevent or cure COVID-19?

Although there are some Western, traditional or home remedies that can reduce the symptoms of Covid-19, there is currently no drug that can prevent or cure the disease. The WHO does not recommend any medications, including antibiotics, to prevent or cure COVID-19. However, there are several ongoing clinical trials that include both Western and traditional medicine. The WHO will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical results are available.

No vaccine, drug or treatment for COVID-19 ?

Not yet. To date, there are no vaccines or specific antivirus drugs to prevent or treat Covid-2019. However, care should be taken to relieve the symptoms of the victims. Seriously ill people should be hospitalized. Most patients recover through care.

Potential vaccines and certain drugs are under medical investigation. They are being tested through clinical trials. The WHO is coordinating various efforts to develop vaccines and drugs for the prevention and treatment of Covid-19.

The most effective way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 is to clean your hands frequently, cover your nose and mouth with an elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing, and keep a distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) from the person coughing. Keep

Are COVID-19 and SARS the same?

No. The viruses that cause Covid-19 and the outbreak of some acute respiratory symptoms (SARS) in 2003 are genetically related, but the diseases they cause are quite different.

SARS was more severe than Covid-19 but rarely contagious. There has been no outbreak of SARS anywhere in the world since 2003.

Should I wear a mask to protect myself?

Wear only a mask if you are sick with COVID-19 symptoms (especially cough) or if you are caring for a person with COVID-19. Disposable face masks can only be used once. If you are not sick or do not take care of the sick person, you are wasting a mask. There is a shortage of masks worldwide, so the WHO urges people to use masks properly.

The WHO recommends the rational use of masks in treatment to avoid unnecessary wastage of valuable resources and misuse of masks.

The most effective way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 is to clean your hands frequently, cover your mouth with coughing elbows or tissues, and keep at least 1 meter (3 feet) away from people coughing or sneezing.

How to put on a mask, use it, take it off and get rid of it?

1) Remember, the mask should be used only by health workers, caregivers and people with symptoms of shortness of breath, such as those suffering from fever and cough.

2) Before touching the mask, rub hands with alcohol-based liquid or wash hands with soap and water

3) Take the mask and check if there is a wet feeling or hole.

4) Notice which side is upwards (where the metal strip is).

5) Make sure the outer side of the mask (colored side).

6) Put your mask on your face. Lightly press the metal part so that it matches the shape of your nose.

7) Pull under the menstrual so that it covers your face and your chin.

8) After use, remove the mask; Remove the elastic loop from the back of the ear while keeping the mask away from your face and clothes to avoid touching potentially contaminated surfaces of the mask.

9) Discard the mask in a closed bin immediately after use.

10) Ensure your cleanliness after wearing or removing the mask – use an alcohol-based hand ruber or if there is visible dirt, wash your hands with soap and water.

What is the incubation period for COVID-19 ?

The “incubation period” is the time between the onset of the virus and the onset of symptoms. The maximum incubation period for COVID-19 is approximately 1-14 days. Symptoms usually appear within five days.

Can humans be infected with COVID-19 from an animal source?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are prevalent in animals. Sometimes people become infected with these viruses which later spread to other people. For example, SARS-CoV was associated with civet cats and MERS-CoV was transmitted by humpbacked camels. The possible animal source of COVID-19 has not yet been confirmed.

To protect yourself, such as when going to live animal markets, avoid direct contact with surfaces that come in contact with animals and animals. Always ensure good food safety practices. Keep raw meat, milk and other things away from uncooked Amin food. Wash well before eating.

Can I get COVID-19 from my pets?

1) We are aware of the incidence of COVID-19 infecting animals and pets of patients;

2) Intergovernmental organizations responsible for improving animal health worldwide, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) is providing dedicated (including testing and segregation) technical guidance to veterinary services and technology experts.

3) Some animals are more likely to be infected through close contact with infected people. More information is needed to understand whether animals and pets can spread the disease.

4) Based on current evidence, transmission from one human to another remains the main driver;

How long does this virus survive on different surfaces?

It is not certain how long the Kavid-19 virus survives on different surfaces, but it seems to behave like other corona viruses. Studies have shown that coronaviruses (including preliminary information about the Cavid-19 virus) can survive on the surface for hours or days. It can vary depending on different conditions (e.g. surface type, temperature or ambient humidity).

If you think any surface may be infected, clean it with a common disinfectant to kill the virus and protect yourself and others. Clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub liquid or wash with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth or nose.

Is it safe to get a package from a region where COVID-19 has been reported?

Yes. Commercial products are less likely to be contaminated by an infected person, and the risk of being infected with the Cavid-19 virus is lower than that of a package that has been moved, traveled, and exposed to different conditions and temperatures.

Is there anything I shouldn’t do?

The following measures are not effective against COVID-2019 and may be harmful:

1) Smoking 2) Wearing multiple masks 3) Taking antibiotics ( see question 10 Are there any drugs or therapies that can prevent or cure COVID-19 )

In any case, if you have a fever, cough and breathing problems, seek medical help early to reduce the risk of more serious infections and share your recent travel history with your doctor.

What is the source of corona virus COVID-19 known as?

Currently, the source of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus of Coronavirus (CoV), is unknown. All the evidence suggests that stork-cove-2 has a natural animal origin and is not a lab-made virus. The SARS-CoV-2 virus has an ecosystem in Badur. SARS-CoV-2, viruses belong to a genetically group, which includes SARS-CoV and several other CoVs isolated from bats. MERS-CoV also belongs to this group, but is less closely related.

How did SARS-CoV-2 infection first occur in the human body?

The first COVID-19 incident was detected in December 2019 in Wuhan City, China. At this stage, it is not possible to determine how people in China first became infected with SARS-CoV-2.

However, in 2003 an outbreak of the SARS-CoV virus came from an animal (civet cat, a wild animal on the farm) and then spread to humans. Similarly, the SARS-CoV-2 species infects humans across barriers, but through intermediate hosts it is likely another species of animal that is manipulated – it could be a domesticated animal, a wild animal, or a domesticated wild animal that has not yet been identified. .

Until the source of the virus is identified and controlled, there is still a risk of a re-epidemic that we are still going through.

What can COVID-19 spread through coins and notes?

There is currently no evidence to confirm or deny that the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted through coins or notes. However, respiratory fluid droplets from an infected person can become contaminated and wear on various surfaces. Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly after touching any frequently touched surface or object, including coins or notes. If your hands are not clean, avoid touching your eyes, face and nose.

How can I safely go to the grocery store during COVID-19?

When going to the grocery store, maintain a distance of at least 1-meter from others and avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose. If possible, sanitize the handles of shopping trolleys or baskets before shopping. Once at home, wash your hands thoroughly after transporting and storing your purchased products. There are still no confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection through food or food packaging.

How to wash fruits and vegetables during COVID-19?

Fruits and vegetables are essential elements of a healthy diet. In any other situation, wash the way you washed it. Wash your hands with soap and water before transporting them. Then, wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly with clean water, especially if you eat them raw.

Is COVID-19 airborne?

When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks, the virus is transmitted through COVID-19-derived droplets. These droplets tend to float in very heavy air. They quickly fall to the floor or surface.

If you are within 1 meter of a person infected with Cavid-19 or touch a contaminated surface, inhale and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth before washing your hands, you may be infected.
