Prevention and control of Covid-19

The new corona virus, as it was called by the World Health Organization in 2019, or – nCoV, belongs to the family of viruses that includes “SARS”. It forms several respiratory syndromes as well as “SARS”, but COVID 19 is different from “SARS”.

Source of infection

The source of infection is people who are infected. People who have no symptoms and are carriers can also transmit the virus.

Way of spreading

The corona virus can be transmitted from person to person. Respiratory droplets and transmission by physical contact are two basic modes of transmission. Also, the virus stays on solid objects for a long time so that it can be transmitted by touching objects that have been previously touched by an infected person. 

So far, it has not been concluded whether it is transmitted by aerosol or through the digestive tract.

Susceptibility to infection

Everyone can be infected only as old as possible  and people who have some chronic diseases are more susceptible to infection and may develop a more severe clinical picture.

Symptoms

The main symptoms are fever, fever and dry throat. In a number of cases, inflammation of the upper respiratory tract, runny nose and diarrhea have been observed. Some patients show only mild fever and low body temperature. Coughing and sneezing are present. In a few patients, difficulty breathing was observed after one week of illness.

Incubation period

The incubation period is between 1 and 14 days, usually between 3 and 7 days.

Prognosis

Most patients have a good prognosis and a few may have critical symptoms. In children, the symptoms are very mild, while in people over 65 and chronic patients, the situation can be significantly complicated.

Treatment

Drug development is underway. There is still no proven cure for the corona virus.

Personal protection

The importance of home quarantine

Personal isolation is used to reduce the number of contacts with potentially infected people. Quarantine-infected people cannot transmit the virus to other healthy people. 

In order to reduce the number of contacts with people who are infected and have no symptoms, isolation is used. In this way, the number of potentially infected people is reduced and the exploitation of medical resources is reduced. For this reason, it is recommended that people over the age of 65 not leave self-isolation because they are the most at-risk group.

During self-isolation, you can spend time reading books, watching television. Wait for the corona virus to lose its transmission power and dry the doctor’s instructions! In this way, you not only help yourself but also others and the entire system.

How to be in home quarantine

A person who is in isolation should be in a well-ventilated and ventilated room. Other rooms should also be well ventilated, windows should be open.

Family members should be in other rooms.

Reduce the number of activities with an isolated person.

Do not share hygiene items such as toothbrushes, towels, etc. with an isolated person.

Refuse all visits.

Caring for the sick

Diseases should be taken care of by people who do not have other health problems or chronic diseases.

When the person taking care of the patient is in the same room with the infected person, he should wear a mask.

When coming into contact with an isolated person, care should be taken to wash their hands and disinfect their clothes after contact.

Disinfection

Clean furniture and bathroom with chlorine-based cleaners every day.

Wash clothes, towels and other useful items at a temperature of 60 to 90 degrees Celsius with detergent. 

All operations should be performed with protective gloves. Wash hands after washing and removing gloves.

Protective masks and gloves must be worn during contact with waste. when the water in the toilet is withdrawn, the board should be lowered to prevent the dispersal of urine particles and feces.
