(By: Khushi Sharma)
Corona Virus Disease (Covid-19) had been a talk of the town, due to its outbreak, throughout the year 2020 when it gripped millions of people and it is still making headlines around the world even in 2021 with its fast-approaching new strain in UK and other parts of the world. From Lockdown to social distancing, it has insisted on the people to change their lifestyle and perspective towards the life altogether.
Covid-19 is caused by a newly discovered corona virus, one of the unknown viruses of Corona Virus family. It has already taken life of more than 2.6 million people and many of us are still circling around this deadly pandemic. As per the history and views of Covid-19 patients, who once had been suffering or are suffering from this virus, it starts with a mild respiratory illness which leads further to fever, cold, congestion in throat and utter weariness of body. People, suffering from this often complain of breathing and fatigue irrespective of any hard or unaccustomed labour. However, it is not mandatory that all and sundry, whomsoever are suffering from this disease, may have these same signs of tiredness and fatigue. Some of them may be asymptomatic and not the carriers of this virus as well.
It usually spreads from person to person through droplets of saliva when an infected person sneezes or coughs without following respiratory etiquettes. So, it becomes essential for one to learn respiratory etiquettes and practice them as much as possible. Besides, touching the things unnecessarily also could be one of the reasons of its outbreak. Therefore, one must take care of all these things in order to protect themselves from this deadly corona virus.
As the saying goes “Prevention is better than cure” The best way to protect ourselves from this deadly disease is to be well-informed about the virus and maintain hygienic environment around us. Putting on a mask properly and sanitizing our hands frequently can help us a lot in making a long distance from this disease. Besides, we should avoid visiting crowded places uselessly like malls, theaters, and parks etc. where there is more risk of getting contacted with other people and maintain proper distance of at least 2 meters from the people while talking to them.
Our safety lies in our own hands. In case of urgency and emergency, we must contact a specialized doctor and act on his/her advice without being doctors ourselves.
