Little About Coronavirus
Coronavirus causes illness starting from common cold to other severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new virus that was never discovered in humans before 2019. This virus can transfer between animals and humans.
Common signs of infection in a person suffering from Coronavirus are as follows:

Protective Measures Against Coronavirus By WHO
The World Health Organization (WHO) has provided a detail regarding protective measures. People should follow them to keep themselves safe and people in their surroundings. You can visit their official website to know about the latest news, updates, travel advisory, and health advisory.
Now, let’s talk about the preventive measures:
1- Frequently Wash Your Hands
People are advised to wash their hands frequently using alcohol-based hand rub or wash them using soap and water.
Reason: Washing hands using soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub will kill viruses (if any) present on your hands.
2- Maintain Adequate Distance in Public Places
It is recommended to maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and a person next to you sneezing or coughing.
Reason: If someone is coughing or sneezing, there is a great chance that small liquid droplets from their mouth and nose might contain the virus. Being close to a coughing person suffering from the disease, you can breathe in the droplets containing COVID-19 virus.
3-Don’t Touch Nose, Eyes, and Mouth
As this virus spread with contact, it will be best to avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth with your hands.
Reason: As your hand touches different surfaces, there is a great possibility that you can pick any viruses. If your hands get contaminated with the virus, then it can reach your nose, eyes, and mouth once you touch these body parts. After this, the virus can easily enter inside your body to make you sick.
4- Practice Good Respiratory Hygiene
Ensure that the people around you should follow good respiratory hygiene. A person should cover his mouth and nose with bent elbow or tissue when sneezing or coughing. If you are using tissue, then quickly dispose of tissues after use.
Reason: Virus can spread via droplets. You should follow good respiratory hygiene to protect yourself from people around you from COVID-19.
5- Get Medical Care In Case of Fever, Cough, and Difficulty in Breathing
Not feeling well? Stay at your home. If you have any signs of cough, fever, and problem in breathing, you need to instantly visit a doctor for a checkup. It is recommended to follow the guidelines and directions for your local health authority.
Reason: National and local authorities have updated information regarding the situation in an area. By calling your health provider in advance will help you to get the right health facility. This will help you and prevent the spread of virus and other infections.
6-Follow Guidelines of Healthcare Provider
Follow all the guidelines provided by your healthcare provider, employer, national, and local public health authorities for protection against COVID-19.
Reason: National and local health authorities are keeping constant check on the health situation of an area. They are up to date regarding the spread of COVID-19 in your area. So, these platforms are the best source to get the advice for protecting yourself and others.
