Corona viruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered corona virus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.
The main way the disease spreads is through respiratory droplets expelled by someone who is coughing. The risk of catching COVID-19 from someone with no symptoms at all is very low. However, many people with COVID-19 experience only mild symptoms. This is particularly true at the early stages of the disease. It is therefore possible to catch COVID-19 from someone who has, for example, just a mild cough and does not feel ill.
The risk of catching COVID-19 from the feces of an infected person appears to be low. While initial investigations suggest the virus may be present in feces in some cases, spread through this route is not a main feature of the outbreak. The ongoing research on the ways COVID-19 is spread and will continue to share new findings. Because this is a risk, however, it is another reason to clean hands regularly, after using the bathroom and before eating.
Try to stay indoors as much as possible, and step outside only when it is absolutely necessary. Never forget to wear masks to prevent health hazards from COVID-19 virus.
Use of double masks is more effective in preventing COVID-19 virus from entering our body via nose and mouth. To keep your health sahi, wear 2 masks- one cloth mask and one surgical mask - whenever you are stepping out of your home.
Do not spread false news, information, or rumours. Before forwarding any message related to COVID-19, verify yourself if the news is true.
itel requests everyone to pass on additional medical aids like oxygen cylinders and medicines to those who are in need. By sharing you can save someone's life.
Even if the situation difficult, try to stay positive and stress-free by keeping yourself occupied. Make efforts to get things going around you, and help others whenever possible. Together we shall overcome this crisis.
