A novel new menace

Covid-19 is a new strain of corona virus, initially known as 2019-nCoV. It is an infectious disease spread through close contact through respiratory droplets released during a sneeze or a cough. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses common in people and across different animals. Covid-19 is a beta coronavirus similar to MERS-CoV and SARS CoV. The virus can live on surfaces up to 72 hours.

Symptoms for Covid-19 can range from none to very mild on one hand to severe illness that results in pneumonia and in some cases death. Common symptoms include a fever, dry cough and fatigue. While the elderly and those with sever chronic health conditions (heart, lung or diabetes) are especially at risk, Covid-19 has claimed the lives of teenagers and the youth too.

Washing hands and maintaining social distancing norms are few of the steps to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

How to protect yourself from the pandemic

  • Keep your hands clean by regularly washing with soap and water or an alcohol based sanitiser
  • Avoid touching your face with unclean hands
  • Remember to cover your mouth if you feel a sneeze or cough coming
  • Keep your distance (1 metre) from other people, especially the sick and elderly
  • Avoid activities that weaken lungs – like smoking
  • Stay home, stay safe. Self-isolate if you feel ill.
  • Avoid travel and stay away from large groups of people

Coronavirus FAQ'S

How is Covid-19 transmitted?

This disease is spread from person to person through tiny droplets released from the nose or mouth during a sneeze or cough. People who are in proximity and who breathe in these droplets get infected. These droplets also can land on surfaces and infect them. People who subsequently touch contaminated surfaces are at risk of being infected.

How do I know if I am infected?

While only a medical test can truly determine infection, common symptoms to watch out for are fever, a dry cough and fatigue. Nasal congestion and body aches and even in some rare cases diarrhoea are also symptoms.

How lethal is the disease?

While 80% of the people who get this disease will recover without needing special treatment, one in every six people who are infected get seriously ill and have difficulty in breathing.

Should I wear a mask?

Only wear a mask if you feel sick yourself. The mask will help prevent you from infecting other people when you cough or sneeze. Also wear a mask if you are looking after someone who is ill. Wear a mask as long as you have the symptoms of cough or sneezes. Stop after 24 – 48 hours after you stop having any symptoms.

How do I protect myself from Covid-19?

Keep your hands clean. Regular washing with soap or an alcoholic sanitiser will help. Avoid touching your face with unclean hands. Cover your cough with a handkerchief or the bend of your elbow sleeve if you don’t have a mask. Maintain social distancing of 3 feet.

What is the virus incubation period?

An incubation period is the time it takes from being exposed to the virus to the time you start displaying symptoms. For Covid-19 this can be anywhere between 1 to 14 days. The common average being 5 days.

Should I avoiding Asians and Asian places of businesses like supermarkets?

No. The Covid-19 virus doesn’t discriminate between nationalities or retail outlets. It has infected people across countries, races and age groups. We encourage everyone to maintain civility and empathy during these times and not to stigmatise anyone.

Can I catch the virus by being in an enclosed place like a subway?

No as this is not an airborne virus. However it is essential to maintain social distancing so that you aren’t in close proximity to a potentially infected person who may have an un-shielded cough or sneeze.
