Simple Facts about COVID-19

We read and hear about the COVID-19 or Corona Virus everywhere but for sure there are difficult words and medical terms used that are hard to understand. So let’s simplify things in simple words just to make it easier for us to get a brief idea and be more alert of what is happening!

COVID-19, also known as Corona Virus is a virus or disease that was said to circulate among animals and known to infect humans. Bats were said to be the natural host for this virus but yet several other animals are also said to be a source.

However, the virus is now spreading worldwide and more cases are reported all around the world every day. Every single one of us is at risk to be infected.

The COVID-19 first emerged in late November 2019 when the virus was reported in Wuhan, China. The outbreak then started to spread to a number of countries. New cases are reported every day  and the numbers are rising rapidly and so are the deaths tolls.

And very recently, Malaysia’s government has announced the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) which is extended to 31st March. There may be changes in the coming days depending on the number of cases reported.

Well, there is the term ‘Prevention is better than cure’. Which, in this case, is a very good term to refer to. This virus is no joke as you are risking your life if you are infected!

We should really practice all the preventive measures we read everywhere.  Good hygiene habits and other steps given. No one can protect you other than you, yourself.

Let’s run through the basics shall we?

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. You can also use the hand sanitizer if you are out and about. The virus can survive for several hours on surfaces such as tables, door knobs, lift buttons, shopping cart handles. These are simple examples of things that are frequently touched out there.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. The virus enters your body easily through these parts of the body.
  • The virus seems to be transmitted mainly via respiratory droplets, so do cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough.
  • Social distancing. Distance yourself from people. Avoid crowds.

To be safe, just avoid going out at all if you have no important business to attend to. Stay at home!

If you don’t already know, these are the symptoms that are developed should you be infected:

  • Fever
  • Dry cough / sore throat
  • Shortness of breath / difficulty breathing
  • Muscle pain
  • Tiredness
