Experts are stressing on the fact that you must stay at home. This is because there is no approved medicine or vaccine for COVID 19. Moreover, coronavirus is an easily transmitted disease and anyone can fall sick, if they come in contact with the affected person. Therefore, if you get affected you can face life threatening situation. There is no way to find out if you are having a strong immunity to fight any virus or if your immune system will go into a cytokine storm. Hence, you must stay at home and avoid human contact, as much as possible.
What to do in case you have to go out?
There will be some time where you have to get out of your house to buy essential food or even if you are working in certain industry sectors, where you cannot work from home. In that case, you must address the situation head on.
3 ply masks, gloves and pocket sanitizers are absolutely a must. At any given situation, you must not leave the house without wearing them. Additionally, you must follow the rules and regulations set by the government. This pandemic is serious and the most damaging of all the pandemics we have seen in the last decade. Hence, we must act now and help save others.
Why should we act now and how can we save ourselves?
To start with the history, coronavirus has emerged from the wet market, Wuhan in the late December. However, the Chinese government has played foul and kept the seriousness of the situation under covers. It did not disclose until the situation became grave and each and every part of the globe became affected.
Initially, after China, Italy took the greatest hit. However, now the situation has turned towards the United States. Recently as per the world pandemic status for COVID 19 United States has been declared the epi centre of the virus.
Needless to say, high worth professionals and industrialist inhabit United States. Therefore, most of the time they travel for business and work. As the cross-human interaction of Americans are high, chances are we will get gravely affected if we do not act now.
Since there are no actual drugs or vaccines to fight this virus, social distancing is the only way to flatten the curve. There are some news channels where you must have heard immunity can eradicate the virus. Do not pay heed to this term as it is very vague and not right. Herd immunity in a nutshell means survival of the fittest.
Therefore, if you are having any underlying disease like diabetes, heart problem, respiratory problems, auto immune disease chances of survival are less. Also, since this virus came from bats to humans, our body cannot identify it properly and some people have noticed cytokine storm which had led to rapid inflammation to death.
Hence, it is strongly advised to stay at home, wash your hands frequently, keep your house clean and sanitized to flatten the curve.
Other necessary steps
You must keep a ready stock of sanitizer. Do not go overboard and hoard it. Do not worry the medical industry is working round the clock to supply necessary items. Masks, paracetamol are a must to keep in your first aid box.
