New studies of Wuhan Pneumonia virus, or Corona-virus, indicate the following:
If when you have a cold, you have a runny nose and sputum, it may not be the new type of pneumonia due to Corona-virus, because it gives a dry cough without a runny nose. This is the easiest way to identify it.
It is good to know that the Wuhan virus or Corona-virus is not heat resistant and dies at a temperature of 26 to 27 ° C. Therefore, you have to drink more hot water (such as tea and infusions).
Try to expose yourself to the sun.
Other important data indicate that:
1. The virus is of a fairly large size (the cell has a diameter of approximately 400-500 nm), so any normal mask (not only that of 3M N95) should be able to filter it. However, when someone infected sneezes in front of you, it will take about 3 meters (about 10 feet) before it falls to the ground and no longer flies, that is, it is suspended in the air.
2. When the virus falls on the surface of a metal, it will live for at least 12 hours. So remember that if it comes into contact with any metal surface, wash your hands thoroughly with soap.
3. The virus can remain active in the tissue for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent can eliminate the virus from the tissue. As for winter clothes that do not require daily washing, you can put it in the sun to kill the virus.
Information on the symptoms of pneumonia caused by the Corona-virus:
1. First, it infects the throat, then in the throat, you feel a dry pain that lasts 3 to 4 days.
2. Then, the virus fuses with the nasal fluid and when dripping into the trachea, it enters the lungs, causing Wuhan’s pneumonia. This process takes 5 to 6 days.
3. Then there is a stage with pneumonia, high fever and breathing difficulties. Nasal congestion is not like normal nasal congestion. It feels like drowning in water. It is important to seek medical attention immediately if you have this feeling.
1. The most common way to get infected is to touch things in public such as handrails, door handles, handles on the bus, etc., so you have to wash your hands frequently. The virus can only live in the hands for 5-10 minutes, but many things can happen in those 5-10 minutes (rubbing the eyes or rubbing the nose).
2. In addition to washing your hands frequently, it is recommended to gargle with mouthwash or saltwater to remove germs while they are still in the throat (before dripping to the lungs).
