COVID-19 : EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
As of the 25th of June, the World Health Organization gave the world a warning that the number of global cases for Covid-19
COULD REACH A 10,000,000 COUNT!
That’s a huge number guys! Even the health leaders in the UK fear that there might be a second wave!
Some may see this disease as a fake disease. Some even feel that it’s worth taking the risk to just go about their daily lives without taking extra precautions. Ladies and gents, this is not FAKE.
This is a GLOBAL PANDEMIC!
There has been over 400,000 deaths across the world, and in UK alone, there has been up to 43,000 deaths. Here are some facts you need to know about the disease. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment. The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces.You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth. So here are a few things you need to do as preventive measures, to not just keep yourself safe, but to keep the people around you safe as well.
- STAY CLEAN. Always, always, always wash your hands. If you can’t find a spot to do so, or fear being in a public toilet or facility, then sanitize your hands! This is very important especially when you’ve touched foreign surfaces or a person.
- STOCK UP YOUR LIFESAVERS. Make sure you have a small bottle of sanitizer in your bag, ALWAYS. Maybe have some wipes as well. When you can, sanitize your phones too. Just a spritz, and wipe away.
- SOCIAL DISTANCING. Many of us have trouble with this as it is a whole new change in our daily activities. But, let us all be responsible global citizens and do our part. The idea of it is simple really; to stand at least 1m away from another person. Easy right? Try to avoid crowded spaces and limit your gatherings to protect everyone you love.
- Another thing we would recommend is to MASK UP. Yes, it is uncomfortable, and with the current weather, it gets kinda stuffy, but better be safe than sorry, right? If you dislike those surgical masks, then go for cooling cloth masks with the filters! It keeps you cool, keeps you protected and it is definitely comfortable!
Let us all beat this disease together as one! We are in this together!
