10 tips to prevent coronavirus

Coronavirus / Novel coronavirus can be prevented by maintaining personal hygiene in a proper way and by doing the following things 

  • regular hand washing with high-quality hand washes, and using alcohol wet wipes (use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol).

  • covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing
  • The consumption of raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided.

  • avoiding bat soups
  • avoiding crowded places

  • Avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing
  • Stay home when you're sick.

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean surfaces, such as countertops and doorknobs, with a disinfectant. 
  • monitor your symptoms.

    • If signs are seen such as, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider

    Coronaviruses(CoV) | Novel coronavirus(nCoV)

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has held Geneva to consider coronavirus to be declared a global health emergency.
    Various countries have implemented evacuation and quarantine plans for nationals wanting to return from China, where the outbreak began in the city of Wuhan.

    With the virus reportedly spreading from person-to-person in parts of that country. Infections with 2019-nCoV, most of them associated with travel from Wuhan,

    2019-nCoV is a betacoronavirus, like MERS and SARs, both of which have their origins in bats. The sequences from U.S. patients are similar to the one that China initially posted, suggesting a likely single, recent emergence of this virus from an animal reservoir
    There are currently seven recognized types of coronavirus that can infect humans.
    Common types include:

    • 229E (alpha coronavirus)
    • NL63 (alpha coronavirus)
    • OC43 (beta coronavirus)
    • HKU1 (beta coronavirus)

    Researchers are racing to develop a vaccine to protect people from the virus. One lab in California has plans for a potential vaccine to enter human trials by June or July.
    coronavirus is spreading like havoc worldwide and nowadays it has become a serious matter of discussion!
    so, the question arises,

    1. what is coronavirus (CoV)?
    2. Where did this new coronavirus (CoV) come from?
    3. how does (CoV)spread?
    4. what are the symptoms of coronavirus (CoV)?
    5. how coronavirus (CoV) is treated?
    6. what is coronavirus (CoV)?.

    what is coronavirus?

    Novel coronavirus or (2019-nCoV) a new type of virus that belongs to a family of viruses known as coronaviruses

    coronavirus infects mostly bats, pigs, and small mammals but they underwent mutation and this leads to the rise of The Novel coronavirus or (nCoV)now they can infect humans.

    coronavirus, novel coronavirus
    mutation incoronavirus or  novel coronavirus

    The death rate for people with no other health problems is 0.9%.

    However, this rises to:

    •  6% in people with high blood pressure
    •  6% in people with long-term lung problems such as those caused by a lifetime of smoking
    •  7% in people with diabetes
    •  11% in people with cardiovascular disease

    Where did this new Coronaviruses (CoV) come from?

    Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. 

    According to our scientists, The Novel coronavirus or (nCoV) came from bats and due to mutation in their genome (due to this change in genome their protein and receptor also changes) they are able to infect humans.

    According to some of the health officials, the outbreak of  The Novel coronavirus or (nCoV) originated in a large animal and seafood market in Wuhan, China.

    But no one is having the exact information about the origin of the virus and it does this virus can infect humans. 
    Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.

    coronavirus, novel coronavirus infection

    Coronaviruses can spread in the following ways:

    • Coughing and sneezing without covering the mouth can disperse droplets of aerosols into the air, spreading the virus.

    • Touching things or shaking hands with a person that has the virus(can be a carrier or victim) can pass the virus from one person to another.

    • Making contact with a surface or object that has the virus and then touching your nose, eyes, or mouth.

    what are the symptoms of coronavirus?

    Most people get infected with coronaviruses at one point in their lives, but symptoms are typically mild to moderate. In some cases, the viruses can cause lower-respiratory tract illnesses such as pneumonia and bronchitis. 

    These viruses are common amongst animals worldwide, but only a handful of them are known to affect humans. Rarely, coronaviruses can evolve and spread from animals to humans.

    This is what happened with the coronaviruses known as the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-Cov), both of which are known to cause more severe symptoms.

    The signs and symptoms which are seen after the infection of coronavirus are

    respiratory symptoms
    • fever
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • breathing difficulties

    In more severe cases, the infection can cause
    • pneumonia
    • severe acute respiratory syndrome
    • nausea
    • vomiting
    • diarrhea
    • kidney failure
    • even death.

    How coronavirus (COVID-19) is treated?

    Scientists are working hard to understand the virus, and Chinese health authorities have posted their full genome in international databases.

    Currently, there are no approved antivirals for this particular coronavirus, so treatment is supportive care to help relieve symptomsFor severe cases, treatment should include care to support vital organ functions.

    For the sickest patients with this illness, specialized, aggressive care in an intensive care unit (ICU) can be lifesaving.

    People who think they may have been exposed to 2019-nCoV should contact your healthcare provider immediately.

    History of COVID-19

    These viruses are responsible for between 15 and 30 percent of common colds.
    Over the last 70 years, scientists have found that coronaviruses can infect mice, rats, dogs, cats, turkeys, horses, pigs, and cattle. Most recently, authorities identified a coronavirus outbreak in China that has now reached other countries.

    Growth Factor of Novel Coronavirus Daily Deaths

    The growth factor is the factor by which a quantity multiplies itself over time. The formula used is every day's deaths/deaths on the previous day. For example, a quantity growing by 7% every period (in this case daily) has a growth factor of 1.07.

    Common asked questions about coronavirus (COVID-19)

    How does coronavirus enter our body and how do they infect humans?

    Coronavirus is a strain of the general flu virus. these viruses can enter into a human by:

    • droplets in the air(aerosol)
    • direct contact with contaminated person or objects

    when coronavirus enters into the human body it mainly targets the upper respiratory tractThis virus attaches to the mucous membranes of the nasal cavity, the sinus cavities, and the pharynx.

    After the infection of coronavirus, it sets up an inflammatory reaction of the mucous membrane cells. Then it affects the mucous membranes of the voice box, the trachea, the bronchial tubes and finally of the alveoli (the tiny airbags of the lungs which help in oxygenation of the blood).

    Because of the inflammation of the alveoli after the infection of COVID-19, which can make a person sick due to decrease in the ventilation of the lung which leads to decrease in the oxygenation process blood.

    If the infection of coronavirus is stronger than the immune system, then the person will be infected and it may lead to further complications like viral pneumonia.

    This is associated with a lot of secretions that must be coughed up or else there is not enough surface in the lungs to absorb oxygen. You can drown in your secretions.

    If the inflammation will continue then the health condition of the person may worsen and it can kill some patients. With the ordinary flu, antibiotics will not help with the viral flu, like infection of coronavirus.

    What is social distancing? how is it useful in fighting against coronavirus infection?

    Social distancing is a public health tactic that helps communities slow down the transmission and spread of contagious illnesses like the coronavirus.

    Studies hs shown that in urban areas and regions where a disease is spreading, taking measures like 

    • working from home
    • shutting down schools
    • canceling mass events
    • everyone wash their hands frequently
    • keep a physical distance of 6 feet or more between yourself and anyone coughing or sneezing
    • continue not touching your face

    These steps can significantly reduce the rate of new infections due to COVID-19.

    Does hand-washing work against the infection of COVID-19?

    The answer to this question is Yes! Washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds or using sanitizer is one of the best ways to stop the spread of germs and viruses, and to ensure you don’t get sick yourself.

    How to Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer?

    Due to the outbreak of coronavirus demand for sanitizer increased and several medicine shops, malls, and supermarkets have gone out of stock.
    But don't worry—making your own hand sanitizer is remarkably easy.

    The Quick (Gel) Recipe
    • Isopropyl alcohol 
    • Aloe vera gel 
    • Tea tree oil 
    Mix 3 parts isopropyl alcohol to 1 part aloe vera gel. Add a few drops of tea tree oil to give it a pleasant scent.

    we can also use the doctor's spirit, in this we use 100ml of medical spirit and mix it with 20ml water and pour the solution into a bottle and it ready to carry with you.

    How to avoid cold and flu and boost our immune system to fight against COVID-19?

    If our immune system is healthy then even after getting the infection of coronavirus our body will heal itself.

    D3 has long recognized as a stimulant of the immune system. 
    Megavitamin D3 dose therapy that became popular when the SARS epidemic hit the world.

    Mega Vitamin D3 Doses are very effective fighting the Cold Or Flu, it is also effective to take care of your larynx (voice box). 50,000 IU of vitamin D3 is very effective against the laryngitis scratchy sound and cough.

    vitamin D3 is the most preferred product by singers when it comes to the matter of laryngitis.

    How vitamin D boost our immune system to fight against coronavirus?

    Taking optimum doses of vitamin D3 helps in the secretion of cathelicidin and defensins. cathelicidin and defensins are the polypeptides which are having antibacterial and antiviral properties and can help in the prevention of coronavirus infection. 

    Vitamin D stimulates the B cells and T cells, which helps to suppress viral, bacterial and other pathogenic infections.

    The other medication which can help to boost immune system  Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, and Echinacea in combination can be useful in the treatment of the common cold.  

    As the rumor says garlic is effective to fight against the coronavirus, is it true or it is just a rumor?

    • After doing all the review research analysis we reject without discussion any suggestion that the entire medical profession is part of a conspiracy to hide the efficacy of “natural” remedies

    • Garlic will help to improve your immune system which will act against the virus but it is indirect action.

      How our lifestyle affects getting the infection of coronavirus?

      Our lifestyle has a direct impact on the probability of getting the disease. People of a particular life-style have a greater probability of acquiring a particular disease. Indian people have a lifestyle that is less likely to cause this type of disease, hence, be calm and relax.

      Avoid visiting abroad.

      Avoid interacting with those people who are returning from China, Italy, Japan, Iran, South Korea or any other country people where the infection of coronavirus is already spread.

      lifestyle changes that can help in fighting against coronavirus,

      • We request you to avoid visiting crowded or dirty places.
      • Maintain your lifestyle.
      • Drink hot water.
      • Eat hot food.
      • Take some sunlight - preferably remain in the Sun from 7 am to 8 am.
      • Practice Yoga, Meditation and Swadhyaay as per your regular schedule.
      • Follow traditional Indian values and philosophies of vegetarian food. Use the traditional Indian symbol of Namaste for greetings. Relax at home and don't panic.

      How coronavirus rapidly spread in Italy in the month of February? what can be the cause?

      In the month of February, there is carnival season in Europe including Italy, where people aggregate and huddle together. Ideal place for people to eat, drink, stick together, as well as opportunities for any diseases to catch a new host.

      Italian people meet and greet with a  few kisses on both cheeks, and as we all know that Covid19 can spread through contact and upper extremity is the obligate area for the spread of infection. Now imagine so many kisses during the carnival and the virus kept spreading as people greeted each other.

      people went back home on the same day, many use public transportation like trains buses as well as park n ride facilities. This also led to the eventual spread of the disease.

      The other reason can be 
      lack of awareness,
      not maintaining personal hygiene

      What does the coronavirus feel like?

      Here I am sharing personal experience about a patient in my neighborhood
      So I will give you an idea of what the virus feels like to a healthy young person. He is a 20-year-old male with no preexisting health conditions and he uses to do exercises regularly and has a mediocre diet.

      Let me tell you it ain't no flu it's worse, at the beginning he developed a fever and he was exhausted he spend 2 days on the bed only getting up to eat and for some reason, food tested bitter and bad.

      At day 3 the fever left and he could finally move around but still had fatigue but it wasn't over, at day 3 he started coughing all the damn time iv never in my life coughed so at some point he was trying to suppress it as much as possible because his diaphragm was seriously sore. Simply because my O2 sat this morning was 64% and I was severely hypoxic. Feels like shards or crystals or solidified material entered my lungs, although it’s probably just the secreted fluid by the virus which caused me to have pneumonia.

      he didn't experience any issues with breathing but coughing always removed some mucus so I'm pretty sure his lungs were full of it. Anyway, the coughing got less frequent until it disappeared and he was normal again so, is it like the flu or cold? after being admitted to the hospital for 21 days.

      Why is the world panicking over the coronavirus when it has a less than 3.4% fatality rate?

      3.4% is not a useful number to know when it comes to making sense of lockdowns, closures, and other extreme measures.

      Now, let us go back to the first lesson of Economics 101—supply vs. demand.

      Hospitals are very expensive and they are often designed to run at capacity to minimize cost. It is not surprising to experience delays in admission, especially for non-critical cases. The percentage of available beds on any given day is probably in the low single-digit. Let’s be optimistic and call it 5% because people do not stop falling sick on account of COVID-19.

      For a country like America, that translates to 1.5 beds per 10,000 on an average day, or about 50,000 free beds nation-wide. The proportion of ICU beds stateside is 10%, so we end up with 1.5 ICU beds per 100,000 or 5,000 free ICU beds.

      For a nation of 327 million, it is terrifying to wake up to the fact that a mere 5,000 additional patients suffering respiratory complications can overload the entire system. I am being optimistic because the infectious nature of COVID-19 will require entire wards or wings to be cordoned off, playing havoc with availability.

      How severe is Coronavirus infection?

      It is suggested the coronavirus is more contagious than the flu, which infects 5%–20% of the US population each year.

      So either we are in mass quarantine worldwide and economic disruption + lower number of cases, or we get a nasty 20%+ infections globally.

      And if it is not controlled its outbreak may lead to 1 in 5 people are going to get sick.

      The infection of coronavirus takes over a week to develop into a flu-like sickness but often gets worse. As a result of the infection of COVID-19, our lung injures, causing difficulties breathing and the need for oxygen therapy with potential complications. That’s why hospitals are going to be overflowing with people.

      Some of these people are going to die, especially the elderly because of immunodeficiency. Mortality rates for the virus are yet to be determined. I.e. over 100 people have died in China, 

       If it has a higher mortality rate of 3.4% till the date as per WHO, it will be as bad as the Spanish flu.

      3.4% fatality? That’s not the scary bit.

      With a 0.075–0.15% infection rate at any point in time and assuming 10–20% develop complications, critical care demand will exceed supply. American hospitals will be overwhelmed nationwide.
      The fatality rate in such a scenario will not be 3.4%.

      Can we expose ourselves to COVID-19 infection and gets to get immunity?

      Doctor Li Wenliang has done the same thing, and He got ill himself and is now dead.

      To get immunity we use only neutralized antigen or attenuated as the vaccine.
      The biggest risk to expose oneself to the virus.
      You can be one of the more than 80 % who just gets a weak disease.
      But you do not know if you one of those who are being very ill.

      When does the coronavirus pandemic will end?

      This COVID-19 will end as for all other pandemics and epidemics in history, by falling off after it peaks, roughly mirroring the way it came. However, the shape of the curve may be modified by how much interventions were implemented and whether there’ll be an effective antiviral and vaccine available at some point. Timing? Who knows. China hit it hard and is now effectively over after 7 weeks from its lockdown. Australian epidemiologist suggested Australia won’t reach the peak until 2–5 months in, then it’ll be another 2–5 months to come down.
