- What are coronaviruses?
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
SOME MAIN QUESTIONS ABOUT CORONA
Q,01, What is the virus called which causes the coronavirus disease?
ANS: – COVID-19 is caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2.
Q.02, What is the meaning of COVID-19?
ANS: – COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus. ‘CO’ stands for corona, ‘VI’ for virus, and ‘D’ for disease. Formerly, this disease was referred to as ‘2019 novel coronavirus’ or ‘2019-nCoV.’
Q.03, How dangerous is the coronavirus disease?
ANS: – Although for most people COVID-19 causes only mild illness, it can make some people very ill. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people, and those with pre- existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes) appear to be more vulnerable
Q.04, What are some of the common symptoms of the coronavirus disease?
ANS, Common symptoms of infection may be in the form of respiratory symptoms such as-
• shortness of breath and
• breathing difficulties.
In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing hospital treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart and lung problems, diabetes, or cancer, are high risk groups of developing serious illness.
People of all ages who experience fever and/or cough associated with difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, chest pain/pressure, or loss of speech or movement should seek medical attention immediately.
Q.05, Can the coronavirus disease spread through feces?
ANS, the risk of catching the COVID-19 virus from the faces of an infected person appears to be low.There is some evidence that the COVID-19 virus may lead to intestinal infection and be present in faces. Approximately 2−10% of cases of confirmed COVID-19 disease presented with diarrhea (2−4), and two studies detected COVID-19 viral RNA fragments in the fecal matter of COVID-19 patients (5,6).However, to date only one study has cultured the COVID-19 virus from a single stool specimen (7). There have been no reports of faecalis−oral transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
Q.06, What are foods to avoid during the COVID-19 pandemic?
ANS, Reduce foods such as red and fatty meats, butter and full-fat dairy products, palm oil, coconut oil, solid shortening and lard. Avoid trans fats as much as possible. Read nutrition labels to ensure that partially hydrogenated oils are not listed in the ingredients.If food labels are not available, avoid foods which commonly contain trans fats such as processed and fried foods, like doughnuts and baked goods – including biscuits, pie crusts, frozen pizzas, cookies, crackers and margarines that include partially hydrogenated fat. If in doubt, minimally processed foods and ingredients are better choices. Consume enough fiber Fiber contributes to a healthy digestive system and offers a prolonged feeling of fullness, which helps prevent overeating.
Q.07, Who issued the official name of COVID-19?
ANS, the official names COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 were issued by the WHO on 11 February 2020.
Q.08, How many people have died from Covid-19 in India?
ANS, India has recorded 21 million coronavirus cases and more than 230,000 deaths, according to a New York Times database may 2021.
Q,09, Does UV light kill COVID-19?
ANS, Coronaviruses die very quickly when exposed to the UV light in sunlight. Like other enveloped viruses, SARS-CoV-2 survives longest when the temperature is at room temperature or lower, and when the relative humidity is low (<50%).
Q,10. What are the organs most affected by COVID‐19?
ANS, the lungs are the organs most affected by COVID‐19
Q,11. What is the most likely ecological reservoirs for coronavirus disease?
ANS, the most likely ecological reservoirs for SARS-CoV-2 are bats, but it is believed that the virus jumped the species barrier to humans from another intermediate animal host. This intermediate animal host
could be a domestic food animal, a wild animal, or a domesticated wild animal which has not yet been identified
Q,12. What are the possible modes of transmission of COVID-19?
ANS, Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 can occur through direct, indirect, or close contact with infected people through infected secretions
such as saliva and respiratory secretions or their respiratory droplets, which are expelled when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks or sings.
Q,13. What does it mean to flatten the COVID-19 curve?
ANS, A flatter curve is created by a more gradual increase in the number of cases per day and a more gradual decrease.
Over a long period of time the number of people infected might be around the
same, but the difference is the number of cases that occur each day.
Q,14. Should you meet with other people during the COVID-19 pandemic?
ANS, in this difficult period it is best to meet virtually but if you have to meet others,
do it carefully and with the right precautions.
Q,15. Are children at lower risk of COVID-19 than adults?
ANS, so far, data suggests that children under the age of 18 years represent about 8.5% of reported cases, with relatively few deaths compared to other age groups and usually mild disease. However, cases of critical illness have been reported. As with adults, pre-existing medical conditions have been suggested as a risk factor for severe disease and intensive care admission in children. Further studies are underway to assess the risk of infection in children and to better understand transmission in this age group

HOW IT SPREADS
The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces.
You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth.
Is N440K dangerous?
N440K Covid variant not dangerous, double mutant strain ‘more infectious’: Scientists. The N440K variant of coronavirus, which wreaked havoc during the first wave of the pandemic in the country is diminishing and likely to disappear soon, scientists at CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) said.
Can you take vaccine if you have Covid?
Wait till your symptoms subside For starters, if you are currently COVID-positive, you should not get the vaccine until you are fully recovered. Even if the infection was mild or asymptomatic, it is important to wait for at least 10-14 days since your symptoms first appeared before you go out to get the vaccine jab
How to eat healthy in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Consume enough fibre because it contributes to a healthy digestive system and offers a prolonged feeling of fullness, which helps prevent overeating.
To ensure an adequate fibre intake, aim to include vegetables, fruit, pulses and wholegrain foods in all meals. Whole grain foods include oats, brown pasta and rice, quinoa and whole-wheat bread and wraps, rather than refined grain foods such as white pasta and rice, and white bread.
Good hydration is crucial for optimal health. Whenever available and safe for consumption, tap water is the healthiest and cheapest drink. It is also the most sustainable, as it produces no waste, compared to bottled water.
Will climate change make the COVID-19 pandemic worse?
There is no evidence of a direct connection between climate change and the emergence or transmission of COVID-19 disease. As the disease is now well established in the human population, efforts should focus on reducing transmission and treating patients.
However, climate change may indirectly affect the COVID-19 response, as it undermines environmental determinants of health, and places additional stress on health systems. More generally, most emerging infectious diseases, and almost all recent pandemics, originate in wildlife, and there is evidence that increasing human pressure on the natural environment may drive disease emergence. Strengthening health systems, improved surveillance of infectious disease in wildlife, livestock and humans, and greater protection of biodiversity and the natural environment, should reduce the risks of future outbreaks of other new diseases.
Can you take vaccine if you have Covid?
Wait till your symptoms subside For starters, if you are currently COVID-positive, you should not get the vaccine until you are fully recovered. Even if the infection was mild or asymptomatic, it is important to wait for at least 10-14 days since your symptoms first appeared before you go out to get the vaccine jab.3 days ago
What can I do on a daily basis to stay healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Keep to your regular routines as much as possible and maintain a daily schedule for yourself including sleeping, meals and activities. Stay socially connected. Speak to loved ones and people you trust every day or as much as possible, using the telephone, video-calls or messaging, through writing letters, etc. Use this time to share your feelings and to do common hobbies together. Be physically active every day. Reduce long periods of sitting and set up a daily routine that includes at least 30 minutes of exercise. Make sure to do activities that are safe and appropriate for your level of physical fitness as indicated by your health-care worker.You can use household chores as a way to keep physically active, follow an on-line class (e.g. Tai Chi, yoga) or choose your favourite music and dance to that.
How long have coronaviruses existed?
The most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of all coronaviruses is estimated to have existed as recently as 8000 BCE, although some models place the common ancestor as far back as 55 million years or more, implying long term coevolution with bat and avian species.
“DON’T WORRY , JUST STAY AT HOME”
To prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Clean your hands often. Use soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand rub.
Maintain a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible.
Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
Stay home if you feel unwell.
If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention.
Calling in advance allows your healthcare provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This protects you, and prevents the spread of viruses and other infections.
Masks can help prevent the spread of the virus from the person wearing the mask to others. Masks alone do not protect against COVID-19, and should be combined with physical distancing and hand hygiene. Follow the advice provided by your local health authority.
Asymptomatic cases, mild cases of COVID-19:
Isolate yourself in a well ventilated room.
Use a triple layer medical mask, discard mask after 8 hours of use or earlier if they become wet or visibly soiled. In the event of a caregiver entering the room, both caregiver and patient may consider using N 95 mask.
Mask should be discarded only after disinfecting it with 1% Sodium Hypochlorite.
Take rest and drink a lot of fluids to maintain adequate hydration.
Follow respiratory etiquettes at all times.
Frequent hand washing with soap and water for at least 40 seconds or clean with alcohol-based sanitizer.
Don’t share personal items with other people in the household.
Ensure cleaning of surfaces in the room that are touched often (tabletops, doorknobs, handles, etc.) with 1% hypochlorite solution.
Monitor temperature daily.
Monitor oxygen saturation with a pulse oximeter daily.
Connect with the treating physician promptly if any deterioration of symptoms is noticed.
Instructions for caregivers:
Mask: The caregiver should wear a triple layer medical mask. N95 mask may be considered when in the same room with the ill person.
Hand hygiene: Hand hygiene must be ensured following contact with ill person or patient’s immediate environment.
Exposure to patient/patient’s environment: Avoid direct contact with body fluids of the patient, particularly oral or respiratory secretions. Use disposable gloves while handling the patient. Perform hand hygiene before and after removing gloves.
Treatment for patients with mild/asymptomatic disease in home isolation
Patients must be in communication with a treating physician and promptly report in case of any worsening.
Continue the medications for other co-morbid illness after consulting the treating physician.
Patients to follow symptomatic management for fever, running nose and cough, as warranted.
Patients may perform warm water gargles or take steam inhalation twice a day.
When to seek immediate medical attention:
Difficulty in breathing
Dip in oxygen saturation (SpO2 < 94% on room air)
Persistent pain/pressure in the chest
Mental confusion or inability to arouse
Covid vaccine is free in IndiaYES !!
In an effort to ramp up India’s immunisation campaign, more than 20 states, so far, have announced that they will provide free Covid-19 vaccines to their people. While some have made the coronavirus vaccine free for all, others have said that it will be free for people between the age of 18 to 45 only.
