According to WHO, COVID 19 is a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from common cold to more severe diseases.

The symptoms of COVID 19

The symptoms are experienced within 14 days after exposure.
• Fever
• Cough
• Shortness of breath
• Breathing difficulty
• Headache

Safety measures against COVID 19 infection.

• Wash your hands more often.
• Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with tissue or flexed elbow.
• Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu – like symptoms.

The greatest responsibility.

This isn’t time for blame game, it’s not time for who did what, when and why kind of questions. Everyone is suppose to play a major role of preventing further spread of the virus. It’s indeed everyone’s obligation to do so. It’s high time for all human beings to get united so as to fight the virus collectively. Every country/Kingdom’s ministry of health is doing whatever it can, as an attempt of preventing the virus from infecting more citizens. Everything can be done but it’s upon you as an individual, to be responsible and support your government. The fight against COVID 19 isn’t for governments alone rather it’s for all human beings globally.

Don’t panic.

There’s absolutely no reason for you to panic due to COVID 19. Avoiding rumormongers is one way of preventing yourself from unnecessary panic. There are those individuals who might try to spread false information or even claim to have unique ways of treating the virus, some might try to give wrong safety measures hence exposing you to more risks of getting the infection. As an intelligent person, you should concentrate on your country/kingdom’s ministry of health recommendations.

Since you’re now aware of what COVID 19 is, as well as it’s symptoms, you don’t have to panic. Just ensure that you wash your hands more often. It doesn’t mean that if you avoid shaking hands with others, your hands are clean. You might avoid handshakes but unexpectedly, end up touching something that was as well touched by someone else who’s hands were carrying the virus.

If you experience some symptoms that are similar to those of COVID 19, you should not panic rather you should assure the safety of those around you by covering your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing using a tissue or a flexed elbow. Try as much as you can, not to infect someone else. Don’t sit and wait at home, visit the nearest health facility as soon as possible. If you don’t experience any symptoms similar to those of COVID 19 but someone else do, you should urge that particular person to visit the nearest health facility. There are several ways of preventing further spread of COVID 19 but physically attacking the victims isn’t one of them.

Together we can prevent further spread of COVID 19
