China Coronavirus: Protection 2020


WHAT CAN YOU DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF?

Researchers around the world still looking for the best cure for Coronavirus infection. The US government suggests the best treatment for the infection as:

  • Rest and avoid overexertion.
  • Drink enough water.
  • Avoid smoking and smoky areas.
  • Take over-the-counter (OTC) medication such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen to reduce pain and fever.
  • Use a clean humidifier or cool mist vaporizer.
  • Drink more vitamin C

At the time of writing, The WHO has not recommend any countries to impose restriction of travel or trade, but they do encouraged countries to continue strengthening their preparedness for health emergencies. If you have to travel to China or going to public spaces during this time, you might consider to bring additional protection for yourself and family. The city of Wuhan has shut off their public transport system as of Thursday 23rd January 10am Beijing time in an effort to contain the spread of infection during the busy Chinese New Year period. 

The WHO are giving out standard recommendations to prevent infection spread, include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing and thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. In addition, try to avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

Coronavirus has caused concern in China and beyond by those worried about the potential for this to be a repeat of the SARS period of 2002-3. China and the world’s health bodies have learned a great deal about public health interventions from H1N1, Ebola and other outbreaks in recent years. Information sharing, intergovernmental cooperation and monitoring have all improved massively. There is little risk to the general public.
