5 Tips to Prevent Coronavirus

How to keep Coronavirus away

Since reports have determined that a coronavirus vaccine will not be perfected for another year or year and a half, it is best to start looking into at-home prevention methods. Health professionals are asking citizens to stop buying medical masks as they are often worn improperly, and tend to be more effective for those with the virus rather than those trying to avoid getting sick. Also, the mass stockpiling of these devices are preventing medical workers from having the proper supplies. Other known prevention methods include rigorously and frequently washing hands, using hand sanitizer if soap is unavailable, disinfecting any and all surfaces, and preparing medicine and food supplies in case of infection.

“You might want to think about having — making sure you have enough of your prescription medications so that if it's inconvenient to go to the store or if you don't want to stand in line with people who might be sick, you have your prescription medications. But overall, I think the most important thing that people need to do is think about how we can work together through this and not panic,” Dr. Tara Kirk Sell of John Hopkins Center for Health Security informs Brut.

Coronavirus in the United States

As of March 5, there have been 163 confirmed cases and 11 casualties. According to the New York Times, the two states with the most cases of coronavirus are California (54) and Washington (46). Treatment for those overseas has taken place in California, Nebraska, and Texas. Even though several infections have no known connection to previous cases, it is important to note that some of the more severely infected were former passengers of a cruise ship that arrived from overseas. The only level 3 travel locations so far are China, Iran, Italy, and South Korea. It is important to stay informed by following any CDC reports and recommendations that they publish.

    The bit about not having to wear masks - or that it is actively deleterious to wear them - is arrant rubbish. Always assume that the infected might not be wearing masks, and can cough within breathing distance of you - which means that their aerosolised saliva can get to you. Wear masks to keep out aerosolised droplets. This isn't rocket science: it's common sense. In India, always assume that you cannot avoid crowds - in public transport, in marketplaces, in malls, or just pootling around outside your house. Not only is India's population massive, population density is also very high. Therefore, always wear a mask. Most of all, do not, in kneejerk fashion, ostracise people for merely coughing or sniffling. The flu is endemic in India, and most of us have installed immunity to all but its severest forms. In other words, for some preliminary protection from the COVID-19, wear a bloody mask.

    In India, CoronaVirus panic is just to divert the attention from Delhi Riots.
