What is coronavirus, how it spread and how can our prevent it?


1. What is a coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that are common among animals. In rare cases, they are what scientists call zoonotic, meaning they can betransmitted from animals to humans, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


2. oronavirus symptoms

The viruses can make people sick, usually with a mild to moderate upper respiratory tract  illness, similar to a common cold.

For those with a weakened immune system, the elderly and the very young, there's a chance the virus could cause a lower, and much more serious, respiratory tract illness like a pneumonia  or bronchitis.

There are a handful of human coronaviruses that are known to be deadly (致命的), such as Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and SARS (Severe acute respiratory syndrome).

The coronavirus is currently thought to be more mild than SARS and MERS and takes longer to develop symptoms. Patients to date have typically experienced a mild cough for a week followed by shortness of breath. So far, around 15% to 20% of cases have become severe, requiring, for example, ventilation in the hospital. Nowoven geotextile

3. How it spreads Viruses can spread from human contact with animals.

When it comes to human-to-human transmission of the viruses, often it happens when someone comes into contact with an infected person's secretions, such as droplets in a cough.Depending on how virulent the virus is, a cough, sneeze or handshake could causeexposure. The virus can also be transmitted by touching something an infected person has touched and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. Geomembranes


4. Who is affected?

MERS, SARS and the coronavirus appear to cause more severe disease in older people, though uncertainty remains around the latest outbreak. Geotextiles


5.Coronavirus treatment

There is no specific treatment, but research is underway. Most of the time, symptoms will go away on their own and experts advise seeking care early. If symptoms feel worse than a standard cold, see your doctor.Doctors can relieve symptoms by prescribing a pain or fever medication.

6. Should you worry about the coronavirus?

The Wuhan coronavirus fatality rate is lower than for SARS and MERS, but still comparable to the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. The fatality rate is likely to be lower due to an "iceberg" of milder cases we are yet to find.


7.How can you prevent it?

You may be able to reduce your risk of infection by avoiding people who are sick. Try to avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Wash your hands often with soap and water and for at least 20 seconds.Awareness is key. If you are sick and have reason to believe it may be the coronavirus due to travel to the region or coming into contact with someone who has been there, you should let a health care provider know and seek treatment early.Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and disinfect the objects and surfaces you touch.
