ABOUT NEW CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW?

ABOUT NEW CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW?


With the spread of the new coronavirus worldwide, the outbreak of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has put many families around the world, including California, United States, on the brink of panic.


Some answers provided by experts can help us answer some common questions from parents. Here is information about the new virus, the steps you have taken to prevent the continued spread of the new coronavirus, and how to protect yourself from the threat of infection.



What is a coronavirus? Coronaviruses are a collective name for a group of viruses that refer to viruses that can infect both humans and animals. They can cause respiratory diseases. Minor illnesses are like the common cold and severe illnesses can develop into pneumonia. Animal coronaviruses infect humans and spread among humans is extremely rare. The severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), which broke out in March 2002, is a typical case of coronavirus transmission from animals to humans. In 2012, another significant and recently emerged coronavirus strain, called MERS (Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome), emerged in the Middle East. Scientists said it was initially transferred from camel to human.


Should I be concerned if the test results show a "coronal virus" infection?  Most coronavirus diagnoses are equivalent to having a common cold or flu. Remember that the term "coronavirus" covers the entire virus family. Coronavirus positive results do not require panic. However, if the test result is positive, please actively cooperate with the physician or the nursing team.


How is coronavirus transmitted? How to protect yourself? Coronaviruses are usually transmitted from person to person through coughing and sneezing, in close contact with infected persons, or on infected surfaces, followed by mouth, nose, or eyes. To prevent new coronavirus infections, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends following basic hygiene practices, such as washing hands frequently, keeping your body hydrated, covering your mouth and nose with your hands or paper towels when coughing, and staying home when you are sick.

What are the symptoms of the new coronavirus? Coronavirus can produce a range of symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and runny nose. Most coronavirus infections cause only the common cold; more serious bacterial infections can cause severe pneumonia that requires hospitalization. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that the symptoms of the new coronavirus include "symptoms of fever and lower respiratory illness (such as coughing, difficulty breathing)." Recent trips to certain areas with confirmed cases or contact with suspected virus carriers are at risk of infection.

Is coronavirus curable? There is no vaccine and antibiotics are not effective against the virus. Without any specific treatment plan, the medical staff usually treat the patient's existing symptoms to make the patient feel comfortable.


Have measures been taken to prevent the spread of the disease to Los Angeles? Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is undergoing virus screening, but the new coronavirus has an incubation period of up to 14 days, so airport screeners cannot screen all potential patients.


Does AIIM screen new patients? Our medical staff follows all the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in all contact with patients in an effort to prevent the spread of this new virus. We are actively screening all patients from emergency or other hospitals as well as front desk and clinic staff to see if they have recently traveled internationally.


Are there any patient deaths? Coronavirus deaths are being monitored globally. The World Health Organization (WHO) claims that deaths are usually elderly, and 40% of them have significant underlying disease, which is consistent with previous outbreaks of coronavirus.


Coronavirus has led to the situation of lock down across countries whereas the most affected countries are China, 
in which the total affected cases are 81,171 in which all around 3500 deaths have been confirmed,and the second most affected country is Italy in which the affected cases are 63,927 in which 6800 confirmed death cases, as italy is the highest rate of giving more number of coronavirus cases every day.

USA            | Total cases: 46,285 | Total deaths: 588
Spain          | Total cases: 39,673 | Total deaths: 2,696
Germany     | Total cases: 31,370 | Total deaths: 133
Iran             | Total cases: 24,811 | Total deaths: 1,934
France         | Total cases: 19,856 | Total deaths: 860 
Switzerland | Total Cases: 9,117 | Total deaths: 122
South Korea | Total cases: 9,037 | Total deaths: 120
UK               | Total cases: 6,735 | Total deaths: 337

Italy known for its beauty amongst european country now suffering with large number of coronavirus cases, at the initial level of ignorance in the country now made them realized that if it would have been locked down earlier then they could have controlled the situation.

now the city in italy Lombardy and large population of Milan, has reduced the existence due to coronavirus (COVID19). The numbers are dizzying and horrifying. Four hundred and thirty-three dead. Six hundred twenty-seven dead. Seven hundred ninety-three dead.

Wish and Pray for the Nation that soon the effective measures and efforts will help them to build their elegance and survive again


What symptoms indicate a medical need? If you have traveled internationally within the past two weeks and have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention immediately. If you have recently traveled internationally, call your doctor or emergency room in advance to learn about your symptoms and tell them about the area you have been to recently. Ask your child to follow these guidelines as well. If your child has symptoms of coronavirus, please call and tell them before going to the emergency room.
