Coronavirus and Health

Coronaviruses are a type of virus. There are many kinds, and some can cause disease. A newly identified type that started in China has caused a recent outbreak of respiratory. They cause illnesses that can range from a common cold to more diseases. Some coronaviruses transmit between animals and people, some other transmit between animals and others from people to people.

The virus is most likely to spread through:

  • Contact with droplets from an infected person’s sneeze or cough.
  • Touching objects or surfaces that have cough or sneeze droplets from an infected person.
  • Close contact with an infectious person.

Human-to-human transmission has been confirmed for the Wuhan coronavirus, but experts are trying to understand who is transmitting it most, who is at most risk and whether the transmission is occurring mostly in the community or in the hospitals.

What are the symptoms of a coronavirus?

Coronavirus infections are common and usually lead to the common cold. Gastrointestinal disease is possible for young infants. Symptoms can usually include:

  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • A general feeling of being unwell

Is there any coronavirus treatment?

There is no specific treatment, but research is continuing. Most of the time, coronavirus symptoms will go away on their own and experts advice seeking care early. If symptoms feel worse than a standard cold, experts advise seeing a doctor. Drink plenty of fluids, sleep and get rest as much as possible. Consult your health care provider as soon as possible, if you are concerned about your symptoms or have traveled the last 14 days to a region where severe coronaviruses are known to occur. The sooner you get treatment, the quicker and better are your chances for recovery.

Preventing coronavirus.

There is not yet a vaccine to protect against this family of viruses. The US National Institutes of Health is working on a vaccine against the new virus and it might take months until clinical trials get underway and more than a year until it might become available. By avoiding people who are sick, you may be able to reduce your risk of infection. Try avoiding contact with your face, nose, eyes, and mouth. Wash your hands often with water and soap for at least 30 seconds.

Due to the potential survival of the virus in the environment for several days, the premises and areas potentially contaminated with coronavirus should be cleaned before their re-use, using products containing antimicrobial agents known to be effective against coronaviruses. Although there is a lack of specific evidence for their effectiveness against coronavirus, cleaning with water and household detergents and the use of common disinfectant products should be sufficient for general precautionary cleaning. Several antimicrobial agents have been tested against different types of coronaviruses. Some of the active ingredients, e.g. ethanol and sodium hypochlorite are widely available in nonhealthcare and non-laboratory settings.
