COVID-19, the disease resulting from the infection of the Coronavirus, spreads in the same way as other respiratory diseases do. The droplets from the body of an infected person contain the virus that sticks to the surfaces and remains active for many hours. If you touch that surface and then your face, you get infected.
However, you should be more careful in protecting yourself as droplets traveling through the air can also infect you. When a person sneezes or coughs, the droplets can travel quite a distance and remain active in the air for ten to twelve minutes.
The duration for which the Coronavirus can stay active outside the body of the host is not known, but based on the data from other coronaviruses, the one causing the pandemic can survive for several hours and sometimes days. Coronavirus mostly travels through travelers or passengers, or via surfaces, such as armrests, door handles, etc.
Simple Mistakes That Cause People to get COVID19
COVID-19 severity is due to late recognition and simple mistakes that countries have made in controlling the virus and responding late to the situation. Most people underestimated the Coronavirus and its impact, which lead to a rapid increase in infections and deaths around the world. Let’s get into the details of how to get the Coronavirus. Keep in mind that the intended purpose is to help you identify the mistakes and avoid them at any cost to stay safe.
1. Not Washing Hands Properly
If you do not thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water or clean them with an alcohol-based sanitizer, you are more likely to get the Coronavirus. You might be wondering, “Is there really a ‘proper’ way of washing hands?” As a matter of fact, yes! The way we usually wash our hands is not the proper way. You should spend at least 20 seconds rubbing the soap on your hands. How do you keep track of 20 seconds? Just sing Happy Birthday song. Make sure to rub every part of your hands i.e., knuckles, palm, tips of the fingers, back of the hand, etc.
Surprising as it may sound, touching a surface with the Coronavirus on it does not infect you. What infects you is when you touch your face with that same hand. Rubbing your nose and eyes or picking your teeth can cause the virus to enter your body.
2. Touching Your Face Too Many Times
Without even noticing, we touch our faces many times throughout the day. You should know that the most common way for the Coronavirus to enter your body is through the mouth, eyes, and nose. If you have a habit of rubbing your eyes, picking your teeth with your nails, etc., you should get rid of it as soon as possible.
While a mask is ineffective against an organism of the size of a virus, it does keep you from touching your face. So, a hand-sewn mask at home should be enough as a reminder that you must not touch your face.
3. Not Practicing Social Distancing
This virus is more dangerous for you if you are above 60 or have any other health conditions such as diabetes, lung diseases, high blood pressure, or cancer. Maintaining social distancing is really important not only for those who have COVID-19 but also healthy ones. Keep a distance of at least 6-ft from the people around you, regardless of whether they are coughing or not. Avoid crowds as much as you can.
You must not forget that the person carrying the Coronavirus may not show symptoms for many days. To protect yourself, you need to avoid handshakes, hugs, etc.
4. Not Covering Mouth While Coughing and Sneezing
You should cover your face while sneezing and coughing. Cover your mouth with the bend of the elbow or use a tissue paper. You need to dispose of the tissue immediately after one use and wash your hands properly. While sneezing, a spray of small liquid droplet comes out of the mouth or nose. If a person is infected, the viruses in these droplets will infect others.
5. Not Wearing Masks and Gloves Outside
As mentioned earlier, your nose, eyes, and mouth are the common passages for the Coronavirus to enter your body. Having a mask on your face will at least remind you that you should not touch it. If you think a mask does nothing, you might want to read the latest recommendation from the CDC, asking the public to wear masks.
6. Using Outside Objects without Washing
Fruits, vegetables, snacks, and other items that you purchase from stores may also contain the Coronavirus. You never know how many people touched a particular item how many times. You should disinfect the items you bring from the outside with surface cleaners or other germ killers. If it is an edible item, peel it before eating. If you can’t peel the item, boil it. Also, you already kill many viruses when you cook your food at high temperatures. As for packaged food, just get rid of the packaging after taking out the food items, and wash your hands.
7. Not Treating Common Symptoms of Coronavirus
If you are having a cough and slight fever and feel unwell, stay at home, and take medications. This way, you can recover fast. If the cough, difficulty in breathing, and fever continue for seven days, contact a medical health center or hospital, and they will guide you further. If you have the slightest doubt of infection, keep away from people, even your family members. Self-isolation is as much about protecting others as it is about protecting yourself.
How Do You Know If You Have Coronavirus
The early coronavirus symptoms are:
Trouble in breathing or short breaths
Hard to wake up
Chest Pain or pressure
Bluish face or lips
These initial coronavirus symptoms, if not taken seriously, can lead to septic shock, respiratory failure, pneumonia, and death. If you feel such symptoms in your loved ones or yourself, seek medical help straight away before the condition worsens.
These symptoms may appear after two days of getting infected, or at times, they can take up to 14 days. In some people, coronavirus symptoms may not appear. Still, they are carrying the virus and can infect other people.
The symptoms of COVID-19 can be similar to those of the flu and bad cold. The first course of action when you feel such symptoms is to isolate yourself from other family members. Take proper medications to treat the problem. However, if your symptoms don’t go away in seven days, get to the hospital as soon as possible.
If you are living in an area where the Coronavirus is spreading, you should:
· Stay At Home
It does not matter if you are having mild coronavirus symptoms, such as runny nose and headache; stay at home and do not go out until you are better. This way, doctors can concentrate on patients who are in critical condition and need urgent medication.
· Contact a Doctor
You need to immediately contact the hospital if you have a cough and fever, and are having trouble breathing. Make a call before visiting the hospital, or your doctor will direct you to the right place. This way, you can save time and stop yourself from infecting others. If you do not have a regular doctor, you can contact the local health facility, and they will guide you about where you should go for testing and treatment.
· Follow the Advice from the Doctor
A lot of people around the world made the mistake of not listening to their doctors. That led to the rapid spread of the virus. You must not make such a mistake, no matter how basic the advice from your doctor sounds. Yes, it might sound basic when someone tells you to wash your hands. But what else should they tell you when washing hands with soap is the best solution to beat the virus? So, contact your doctor and ask for as much information as you can, and stick to the advice they give you.
Now, to sum it up, making the mistakes stated above is how to get the Coronavirus. However, you are a human with the gift of intelligence and wisdom. Isolation and social distancing might be a very perplexing experience for you, but when you are facing an extraordinary enemy, you have to take extraordinary measures. Be patient, to save not just yourself but the lives of others as well. Isolate today to socialize tomorrow
