If there is one thing we can take from this global pandemic, it’s the fact that the level of humanity is still up there and has not fallen. As we speak, the total Coronavirus cases on a global stage have risen to 1,431,973 according to worldometers.com. Meanwhile, the death cases have been increased to 82,096, and the total number of recovered patients have stood at 302,209. The active vases right now at the time of writing this piece are 1,047,668 (with 797 399 in mild condition and 39 600 patients are in difficult or critical situations. The world is reacting to the pandemic, and it is our responsibility to share the proactive and reactive measures taken by nations all across the globe. Here is our Coronavirus Live update DATA.

Introduction

The definition shared in this content is base on the World Health Organization (WHO). Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that’s responsible for illnesses that range from the common cold to more severe diseases such as MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) SARS. (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).

Symptoms of Coronavirus

Despite every effort to curb the spread, the virus has spread to more than 70 countries globally. Meaning, all continents asides (Antarctica – obviously) are affected by this pandemic. But what are some of the symptoms of coronavirus (AKA COVID-19)? The signs and symptoms of COVID-19 appear in two to fourteen days after exposure. These signs include:
Symptoms of Coronavirus

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Other symptoms include:
  • Sore throat.
  • Aches
  • Tiredness
  • Runny nose.

These are some of the signs you need to watch. Remember it usually takes two to fourteen days for these signs to be felt. However, those who are older or battling any type of medical condition such as diabetes, lung or heart disease, as well as a compromised immune system may be a higher risk of a severe ailment. It’s the same with what you see with respiratory illnesses.

What causes Coronavirus?

The disease got to humans when we came in contact with infected animals. Once a human host exists, then it can quickly spread from human to human. As we speak, the animal responsible for this disease

(COVID-19) is not known. One can spread the virus through contact with certain bodily fluids, such as cough or by touching surfaces that have been affected by infected persons and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

How deadly is COVID-19?

Judging by the stats, asking how deadly COVID-19 is might seem rhetorical. Still, the number of fatalities from the new coronavirus has over surpassed the tolls of the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak, which interestingly originate from China.

Here is how to save yourself from Coronavirus.

When you practice social distancing, it’s possible to prevent coronavirus. You should avoid people who are sick or meeting in the large gathering – that’s why it’s called social distancing. Stay at home if you are sick. When you cough, cover your mouth with a tissue or simply cough into your elbow or upper sleeves. Avoid coughing into your hands.

More on the preventive measures – you need to focus on your hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 to 25 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, after coughing, blowing your nose, sneezing, or before eating if soap and water and readily available all the time, your best bet are to use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. One mistake you need to avoid is thinking that all sanitizers are useful as far as coronavirus is concerned – that’s not true. What you need is an alcoholic – based hand sanitizer that has at least 60 per cent alcohol.

Coronavirus Treatments:

First, before we go into the treatments and whether or not the disease can indeed be treated, let’s take a look at some of the things you can do to help yourself. See it more as self-care.

  • Keep warm always.
  • You need to drink plenty of liquid.
  • Rest and sleep well.
  • You should use a room humidifier or simply take a hot shower to help alleviate the cough and sore throat.

If you develop symptoms of the disease and it’s evident that you’ve been exposed to the virus, contact your doctor ASAP. Tell the doctor that you’ve travelled to any the areas where the disease is rampant. These are places that are tagged with community spread of COVID-19 according to WHO and CDC. You should also let your doctor know if you’ve come in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with the virus.

Here are tips on how to properly wash your hands.

  • Step 1: The first step is to wet your hand with running water.
  • Step 2: Next, apply soap to cover the wet hands.
  • Step 3: Scrub all surfaces of the hands – this includes back of hands, under nails, and between your fingers for at least 20 to 25 seconds.
  • Step 4: Rinse your hand thoroughly with running water.
  • Step 5: Dry your hands with a clean cloth or single-use towel.

To effectively wash your hands, you need to follow these steps with soap or simply use a hand sanitizer.

To test for this disease, a health care provider uses a long swab to take a nasal sample. The sample is then taken to the lab for testing. If you are coughing Sputum, that may also be sent for testing.

As we speak, there is no antiviral medication available for the treatment of COVID-9. The treatment that is carried out on patients are aimed at alleviating the symptoms, and they tend to include:

  • Rest
  • Fluid Intake.
  • Acetaminophen or ibuprofen (pain relievers).

Interestingly, if you have mild symptoms, your doctor may recommend that you practice self-isolation and recover at home. You will then be given special instructions to help monitor the signs and also to avoid spreading the virus to others. Doctors may also recommend that you isolate yourself from loved ones (family and friends) while you are sick and to use a separate bathroom and bedroom. Your healthcare provider will also follow up with you regularly. If the symptoms persist, you may need to be treated in the hospital.

What are some of the coping and support mechanisms?

Everyone’s probably worried that their house and loved ones will get sick. You may be concerned about taking good care of your household.  During this time, here are some ways to help manage stress.

  • Get enough sleep.
  • Eat healthy meals always.
  • When it comes to connecting with your loved ones, you can do via phone or video calls.
  • Have fun – read, and watch a lot of movies.
  • Relax – try deep breathing, meditation, and stretching.
  • Avoid reading or watching too much news or spending too much time online (social media and blogs).

How long does coronavirus last on surfaces?

The coronavirus responsible for the disease COVID-19 can remain on surfaces for up to 72 hours. This is according to a study conducted in the United States.

Now, the figure depends heavily on the type of surface infected droplets land on and the environmental conditions, and the density of the virus particles in the spray. If you think a surface may be infected, clean it with a disinfectant to kill the virus and protect everyone. Clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Remember, you should avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth.

Is COVID-19 airborne?

The virus responsible for COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person speaks, sneezes, or coughs. The droplets are too heavy to hang in the hair. They quickly fall on surfaces or floors.

China’s first travel ban prevents 700 000 new cases – 04/03/2020.

According to a study carried out in China, over 700 000 new cases were prevented thanks to China’s early travel ban. The study estimates that the social distancing measures put in place in China helped prevent this catastrophe from happening outside Wuhan back in January – this was when the Chinese Government imposed a nationwide travel ban in the country. The response may have saved many lives. Prof. Christopher Dye from the University of Oxford, in the UK, and his colleagues made use of large sets of data from millions of people to help track their movements within China.

They were given access to public health records, and they were able to account for Coronavirus cases since the start of the outbreak in their analysis. Taking a good look at there analysis; results suggest that without the Wuhan travel ban and the national emergency response embarked upon by the Chinese government, there would have been more than 700 000 confirmed cases outside of Wuhan by February 19 – according to Pro. Christopher Dye.

Research Coalition embarks on a mission to help low- and middle- income countries – 04/03/2020(09:23 GMT).

A new group consisting of experts from 70 institutions in 30 countries draw out plans to accelerate COVID-19 research in low- and middle-income countries from around the world. Out of the 536 planned trials into COVID-19, only a small percentage are based in Africa, South and Southeast Asia, as well as South America.

A piece was published in The Lancet talking about the members of the coalition. They explain that although these regions have only registered small numbers of COVID-19 cases, only a few people have been tested. Also, the number of infected patients is bound to rise, and the countries’ health systems may not stand a chance with this surge in coronavirus patients.

Ex-Barca playmaker donates 1 million euro.

Xavi recently donated 1 million euro to Barcelona’s hospital clinic to help fight against the ongoing pandemic. The former Barca player and the current coach of the Qatar football team ‘Al-Saad’ as well as his partner Cunillera have confirmed that the coupled have donated the money to the Catalan’s hospital clinic. This is coming amidst news that FC Barcelona players have been asked to take a further pay cut. The team already agreed to a 70% wage cut – however, the report suggests that the initial wage cut may not be enough.

Global Cases surpass the 1 million mark.

In as much as some might think that this disease is not deadly (some people actually believe this), one thing we all can’t dispute is that as at the time of writing this COVID-19 update DATA, the global cases have surpassed the 1-million threshold.  On Thursday (04/02/2020), the number of Coronavirus cases exceeded 1 million. Unfortunately, this includes over 60, 375 deaths, 836, 999 active cases with 95% of that in Mild condition while the other 5% are in severe or critical disease. Now that we’ve cleared that let’s talk about some of the things you ought to know about

Can this virus be treated?

As we speak, there aren’t any proven treatments for COVID-19, but there are lots of studies in the pipes. One antiviral medication that’s currently been tested is Remdesivir; it was initially developed to treat COVID-19’s distant cousin Ebola. There is clinical testing in patients in the US, in China, and around the world.

Pharmaceutical companies and research teams are also working to develop a vaccine that will help protect people from infection. But vaccine development takes time. It usually takes around 18 months to come up with a potent vaccine which will prevent the disease from infecting anyone.

Conclusion

Health experts are struggling to slow the spread of disease because there are few tests available. It took too long for the CDC and FDA to develop and distribute a quality test. If you’ve got any question that you’d like to ask, don’t hesitate to leave a comment in the comment section below. We will be glad to hear from you. Remember, stay safe and practice the social distancing rule placed out there. Hopefully, this pandemic subsides very soon.
