Coronovirus also known as Covid-19 in short  CV. 

CV came undetected like a theft in the night,  it's hides among us and disguised itself as  influenza but a much vicious infectious disease  than Ebola and Sars.

Some people even compared CV to the last deadly influenza pandemic of Spanish flu from January 1918 to December 1920, it infected 500 million people (about a quarter of the world’s population at the time. Number of death 50,000,000.

As at 2nd April 2020, there are now more than one million confirmed cases of coronavirus in 181 countries and at least 53,000 people have died.

It is also presumed the world population could get infected and become CV carrier  if no cure and vaccine available in the very near future.

Italy CV total death is top of the chart follow by Spain, USA, France, Iran, China  etc.  The most unbelievable things is some countries’ leaders have been undermined the CV virus and are not taking immediate stringent precaution methods to curb the spread of the CV virus when it was first detected in Wuhan, China.

Because of its highly infectious rate, people were infected through closed contact,   the virus can stay on different materials left behind by CV carrier from few hours to days, recent medical staff also warn that CV could spread far together with micro droplets when coughing and sneezing.

We have to accept that we are going for a long haul combat with CV. We have to change our daily life activities and habits while we waiting for any cure and vaccine to be discovered.

Some good daily CV protection and hygiene methods could help to control the spread of the virus.

There are including self isolation, frequent wash hand, wear mask, wear protective body gear if necessary, hand and body hygiene, limit number of people in public area and practice social distancing.  After come home, have a shower and change of clothing , put your shoes in soapy water and sanitize your hand bag.

The CV symptoms might vary depends on patients’ stage of health condition and their age group. The most common symptoms are flu, sore throat, dry cough, fever, heavy breathing, some even have diarrhea and lost all sense of smell. 

Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

Currently, there are no vaccines that protect against COVID-19. There is no specific treatment for COVID-19. Early diagnosis and daily basic protective care measures are important. 

The following methods might temporary help to safe guard our body from CV attack :.

  1. drink hot liquids regularly like tea, ginger, turmeric in hot water;

  2. regularly gargles throat with salt, vinegar or any oral antiseptic

  3. giving a good chest and back massage to relief chest tightness

We all hope we could defeat CV in a very near future when everyone is doing the right things.
