Coronavirus or COVID 19 the name announced by World Health Organization (WHO) is the latest viral disease to take the entire world by storm. The virus without any cure to till date originated in China and rapidly spread to all parts of the world include the Western nations like US and UK. Currently, the traces of the virus have been found most in countries such as Iran, South Korea and Italy. As part of preventing the spread of virus, numerous precautions have been announced already. Meanwhile, countries like India have already alerted their citizens and cancelled trips to China. A curfew-like situation has been announced in Wuhan where thousands of Chinese nationals are being treated.
A DSM employee who recently returned from her recent European trip in Italy has tested positive. Pakistan has already issued a statement that it cannot deal with such a situation. Getting into the details, the corona virus is large in size with a cell diameter of 400-500 micro, so any mask prevents its entry so there is no need to exploit pharmacists to trade with muzzles. There is hardly any need to worry for all those who are worried about the spread of virus. As a matter of fact, COVID 19 does not reside in the air, but on the land, so it is not transmitted by the air. If all the virus gets onto a metal surface, it will remain active for 12 hours, so rinsing hands with soap and water properly will do.
Coronavirus could be dealt effectively if it is exposed to an average temperature of 26-27°C as it will be killed. Also, it is necessary to drink hot water and get exposed to the sun. At the same time, eating ice creams and cold food has to be avoided completely. Gargling with warm water is an effective way to deal with the virus as salt kills tonsils and prevents them from leaking into the lungs.
According to an official report from UNICEF, observing the above precautions strictly is sufficient to prevent the virus.
