Globally, 181 countries have been affected, more than 9231 people have died and more than 223,100 infected by the coronavirus as it spreads rapidly to new territories. The epicenter of the outbreak has now shifted to Europe, which is recording a rapid rise in new cases every day.
The coronavirus is brand new for us, and no one knows about its status at a different temperature, Oregon, and people. The coronavirus was identified only in late December, and most scientists say there is simply no data to suggest the COVID-19 cases will start declining in warmer weather, or a particular region or people.
We know you all have some questions in mind, and this article is only about that. Make sure to read till the end.
I think I’ve heard a lot about this question. Many people came out with different conclusions and one of them Is our president. One of the misinformation our president has broadcast during the coronavirus outbreak is his belief that warm weather will halt the spread of coronavirus. In February, Trump told a group of governors, “The heat, generally speaking, kills this kind of virus.” He also said that he anticipated an end to the pandemic by early April.
“We have to assume that the virus will continue to have the capacity to spread, and it’s a false hope to say yes, it will just disappear in the summertime like influenza,” said Dr. Michael Ryan, the World Health Organization’s emergencies chief.
From the evidence so far, the coronavirus can be transmitted in all areas, including hot and humid. While health officials agree warmer weather is a factor in containing the outbreak, they stress the outcome of each country’s response may depend on how robust its healthcare infrastructure is, how quickly those tools are deployed, and how proactive citizens are.
Taking a hot bath will not prevent you from catching coronavirus. Your normal body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C, regardless of the temperature of your bath or shower. Actually, taking a hot shower with extremely hot water can be harmful, as it can burn you. The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands. By doing this, you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.
Can someone spread the coronavirus without being sick?
People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic. However, some virus spread might be possible before people show symptoms. There have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the primary way the virus spreads.
Will the coronavirus be transmitted through mosquito bites?
Till the date, there has been no information or any case to suggest that the coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquito. This virus primarily spreads through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, or sneezes, or through the droplets of discharge from the nose. In the process to protect yourself, avoid any close contact with anyone who is coughing or sneezing,
Will the hand dryer work to protect you?
The clear answer to this question is No. The hand dryers are not much effective in killing the coronavirus. It would be best if you only used the alcohol-based hand cleaner or soap. Once you wash your hands, dry them using a paper towel or a warm dryer.
Can spray yourself with alcohol prevent you from catching the virus?
Hell, No! Spraying yourself with alcohol will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Besides, spraying alcohol can be harmful to you.
This question is most in demand. Aside from soap and water, public health experts say that cleaning your hands with a 60% alcohol-based solution is one of the best ways to protect yourself. As the coronavirus continues to spread, demand for hand sanitizer has increased. Some businesses are limiting the number of sanitizers customers can buy per visit, while others are increasing their prices in stores and online. People around the United States prepare to self- quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic, and hand sanitizer has flown off the shelves of local supermarkets and pharmacies.
While it’s possible to make your own hand sanitizer at home, even the necessary ingredients have proven to get difficult. But, above all, please do not try and make sanitizer at home as it will be either too low proof to be effective or make your hands crack and peel from the alcohol.
Do not panic, people! Take care of your health and protect others by maintaining social distance when required. Stay updated on the latest information regarding coronavirus. Keep reading Beautiful people magazine as we make sure to provide you all the latest verified information.
