Common knowledge about corona virus

Recently, French pilot treated in China for 6 days and was discharged from home and abroad.This shows that the hope of curing corona virus is still very big, so we must have confidence in defeating the virus! So we must come to understand the common knowledge about corona virus, in order to effectively prevent and protect ourselves.

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered corona virus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

How does COVID-19 spread?

People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets. This is why it is important to stay more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from a person who is sick.

Should I wear mask to protect myself?

WHO is assessing ongoing research on the ways COVID-19 is spread and will continue to share updated findings.

Disposable face mask can only be used once.There is a world-wide shortage of masks, so WHO advises rational use of medical masks to avoid unnecessary wastage of precious resources and mis-use of masks  

The most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 are to frequently clean your hands, cover your cough with the bend of elbow or tissue and maintain a distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) from people who are coughing or sneezing.
