Precautions And Protective Measures To Covid 19

As of May 5, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported more than 3.5 million confirmed COVID-19 diagnoses worldwide.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a person can have a SARS-CoV-2 infection for 2–14 days before they develop symptoms of COVID-19.

People with the following symptoms or a combination of them may have COVID-19:

  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • difficulty breathing

The disease may also be present if someone has at least two of these symptoms:

  • fever
  • headache
  • chills
  • sore throat
  • repeated shaking with chills
  • new loss of taste or smell
  • muscle pain
Precautions and protective measures
There are several protective measures people can take against contracting SARS-CoV-2 and going on to develop COVID-19.

The first step involves understanding which populations have a higher risk of contracting a SARS-CoV-2 infection. It also helps to know what groups have a higher risk of developing severe complications from an infection.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets in the air or on contaminated surfaces.

As a result, healthcare professionals and individuals caring for people with confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infections have an increased risk of contracting an infection.

According to the CDC, the following also have a high risk of developing severe COVID-19 symptoms:

  • people aged 65 years and older
  • individuals living in a nursing home
  • people with uncontrolled or severe health conditions
  • people with weakened immune systems
  • people with severe obesity

Avoiding or limiting contact with people showing COVID-19 symptoms or with a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection is the best way to prevent the spread of infection.

People who do not develop symptoms can still transmit SARS-CoV-2 to others. As a result, people should practice physical distancing.

Physical distancing means keeping 2 meters (six feet) away from people when outside, limiting contact with others, and avoiding large public gatherings, as much as possible.

Other precautions against COVID-19 include:
  • staying at home as often as possible
  • wearing a face mask in public areas
  • avoiding touching the face, eyes, nose, or mouth when around others or if hands are dirty
  • covering the mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • washing hands with soap and warm water frequently
  • disinfecting commonly used objects, including electronics, keys, doorknobs, and countertops

The protective measures discussed above may help reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2. However, these measures do not guarantee complete protection against COVID-19.
