          Coronavirus information

          What are coronavirus and COVID-19?

          A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold and patients with COVID-19 will be evaluated and cared for differently than patients with common coronavirus diagnosis. On February 11, 安徽快3开奖直播, the World Health Organization announced an official name for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak, abbreviated as COVID-19. In COVID-19, ‘CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for disease. There are many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease, caused be a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. 

          How does COVID-19 spread?

          The virus is transmitted through respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or exhales, though it is important to note that someone could have only mild symptoms -- or perhaps even be asymptomatic -- and still spread the disease. There are two main ways the transmission can occur:

          1) Person-to-person: This happens when people are in close contact (within 6 feet) of each other. If these respiratory droplets land in the mouths or noses of someone nearby, or are inhaled into the lungs, the virus can spread.

          2) Via contaminated surfaces or objects: Respiratory droplets also can land on surfaces or objects. If a healthy person touches these, and then touches their own mouth, nose or eyes, they can become infected.

          How to protect yourself

          There are several things you can do, and encourage others to do, to avoid infection.

          1) Keep your hands clean: Wash your hands often, especially after spending time in a public place, and before eating. Soap and water work well, but make sure to wash for at least 20 seconds and to cover all areas of your hands, including thumbs and between fingers.If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.

          2) Avoid touching your face: As much as possible, try not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth, especially if you have not washed your hands recently.

          3) Keep surfaces and objects clean: This applies particularly to things you touch all the time, such as doorknobs, countertops, faucets, and even phones. Use water and detergent or soap to clean, and disinfect with EPA-registered household disinfectants.

          4) Keep your distance: Practice social distancing. Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick, or who is coughing or sneezing, and refrain from gathering with large groups.

          5) Stay 安徽快3开奖直播: Work from 安徽快3开奖直播, if it is possible to do so, and avoid spending unnecessary time in crowded public locations, for example by ordering takeout or delivery instead of eating in a restaurant. In fact, many areas have closed or put restrictions on businesses such as restaurants and bars, or even taken more dramatic steps.

          How to protect the people around you

          Remember that we all are responsible for helping keep the people in our communities safe, using these measures.

          1) Cover your mouth: If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth with a tissue, if one is handy, and immediately dispose of it and wash your hands thoroughly. If you do not have a tissue, cover your mouth with the inside of your elbow rather than your bare hand.

          2) Limit close contact: The more people stay in, avoid public settings and refrain from gathering in large groups, the better the chances of limiting the spread of COVID-19, and protecting the people who are most vulnerable. That applies even if you feel fine.

          3) If you’re sick, take extra precautions: Anyone with symptoms, even mild ones, should stay 安徽快3开奖直播, unless you are required to leave to get medical care (before visiting your doctor, call ahead). As much as possible, limit contact with others in your household, and avoid sharing items. You also can wear a face mask when around other people.

          Recognizing the symptoms

          It is believed that a person may develop symptoms anytime from 2-14 days after being exposed to the virus. The most common are:

          • Fever
          • Fatigue
          • Cough
          • Shortness of breath

          Who is most vulnerable?

          While most people will experience only mild symptoms -- and about 80 percent will recover without needing special treatment -- about one in six will become seriously ill. Older adults and those who have serious chronic medical conditions are at a higher risk of developing severe symptoms.
