Know The Facts: Coronavirus Safety and Sanitization
As coronavirus spreads throughout the Bronx and beyond, anxiety is at an all-time high. The best way to ease worry is through education. Not all information regarding COVID-19 is comforting. But consulting reliable sources can clear up panic-inducing misinformation and empower you to combat contagion.
Most individuals who contract coronavirus will make a full recovery. However, WHO warns that severe cases “can cause pneumonia, acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.” The elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions are most vulnerable to COVID-19. This is why we must be vigilant in protecting not only ourselves, but our family and neighbors as well.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, symptoms may not appear for up to 14 days after exposure. This means you could carry and spread coronavirus long before you are aware of an infection. Let this inform the way you move through our community. Practice social distancing and coronavirus tips from the CDC. Avoid crowds and physical contact of any kind. If you care for ill or elderly family members, wash your hands thoroughly before interacting with them.
If you think you may have contracted coronavirus, call your doctor for medical advice. Do not go to the emergency room for common symptoms such as cough, fever, and shortness of breath, unless your doctor advises you to. However, if you experience difficulty breathing, chest pain, new confusion, or other emergency warning signs outlined by CDC, seek immediate medical attention.
Practice diligent hygiene within your home or business. Disinfect surfaces every day and designate a protected area for vulnerable family members.
