``வெயிலுக்குக் கொரோனா கட்டுப்படும் என்று மக்கள் நம்பிக்கைகொள்ள வேண்டாம்!'' - உலக சுகாதார நிறுவனம்

"வெப்பமயமான சூழலில் கொரோனா பரவல் தடுக்கப்படுமா?" - உலக சுகாதார நிறுவனம் விளக்கம்

கொரோனா வைரஸ் பாதிப்பு லட்சம் பேரைத் தாண்டி கட்டுக்குள் அடங்காமல் உலக நாடுகள் அனைத்திலும் பரவிக்கொண்டிருக்கிறது. உலக நாடுகளில் இறப்பு எண்ணிக்கை 3,500-ஐத் தாண்டிவிட்ட சூழலில், இத்தாலியில் கொரோனா பயத்தால் 16 கோடிக்கும் மேற்பட்ட மக்கள் தனிமைப்படுத்தப்பட்டு, மருத்துவக் கண்காணிப்புக்கு உட்படுத்தப்பட்டிருக்கிறார்கள். இந்தியாவிலும் கொரோனாவால் பாதிக்கப்பட்டவர்களின் எண்ணிக்கை நாளுக்கு நாள் அதிகரித்துக்கொண்டே வருகிறது.

உலக சுகாதார நிறுவனத்தின் அதிகாரி டெட்ராஸ் இதுகுறித்துப் பேசும்போது, "உலகம் முழுக்க எந்தவிதக் கட்டுப்பாடுமின்றி நோய் இப்போது பரவி வருகிறது. ஆகவே மக்கள் அனைவரும், நோயின் தீவிரத்தன்மையை புரிந்துகொண்டு, புத்திசாலித்தனமாக நோயை எதிர்த்து நிற்பது மட்டுமே இப்போது அவசியமாக இருக்கிறது.

வெப்பமான சூழ்நிலையில் இந்த வைரஸ் பரவாது என்பது இதுவரை எங்கும் நிரூபிக்கப்படவில்லை என்பதால் யாரும் அந்தக் கருத்தை நம்பி, அலட்சியத்தோடு செயல்பட்டு, நோய்ப் பரவுதலுக்கு வழிவகுத்துவிட வேண்டாம். மாறிவரும் தட்பவெப்பதுக்கு ஏற்ப கொரோனா எப்படித் தன்னை தகவமைத்துக்கொள்ளும் என்பது கணிப்புக்கு அப்பாற்பட்டதாக இருக்கிறது" எனக் கூறியுள்ளார்.

Daily numbers on the decline in China

China’s National Health Commission recorded 40 new daily coronavirus cases and 22 fatalities on Sunday, bringing the national totals to 3,119 deaths and 80,735 patients.

Of the 40 cases identified Sunday, 36 are in Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, and four were from people returning from overseas.

The NHC also said 58,600 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals.

Italy on lockdown

Large swaths of the northern Italy has been placed under lockdown, restricting the movements of more nearly 15 million people in an attempt to control Europe's biggest outbreak.

As of Sunday evening, Italy has recorded 7,375 cases of the virus and 366 deaths.

The restrictions are among the most draconian measures implemented by governments worldwide, second only to mainland China, which restricted the movement of tens of millions of people in order to halt the spread of the virus.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte signed a decree early Sunday, placing travel restrictions on the entire Lombardy region and 14 other provinces.

People who do not adhere to the restrictions, which are in place until April 3, will face up to three months in prison and a fine of 206 euros ($232).

US cases rise

At least 550 coronavirus patients have been identified in the United States, authorities there said, including 70 people who were repatriated from abroad. Cases have been identified in 34 states.

At least 21 people have died, 18 in Washington state, two in Florida and one in California. The hardest-hit area has been the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, where 16 people in a nursing home succumbed to the virus.

Several cruise ships have also been affected, including the Grand Princess. Twenty-one people aboard the ship have contracted the virus. It is expected to dock sometime Monday in Oakland, California, Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a news conference Sunday.

The Grand Princess has been in limbo since Wednesday, when officials learned a California man who traveled on the same ship last month later died of coronavirus.

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said he will self-quarantine out of an "abundance of caution" after interacting with an individual who tested positive for the coronavirus while the two attended a prominent conservative political conference.

Coronavirus: The fake health advice you should ignore

1. Garlic

Lots of posts that recommend eating garlic to prevent infection are being shared on Facebook.

The WHO (World Health Organization) says that while it is "a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties", there's no evidence that eating garlic can protect people from the new coronavirus.

In lots of cases, these kinds of remedies aren't harmful in themselves, as long as they aren't preventing you from following evidence-based medical advice. But they have the potential to be.

The South China Morning Post reported a story of a woman who had to receive hospital treatment for a severely inflamed throat after consuming 1.5kg of raw garlic.

We know, in general, that eating fruit and vegetables and drinking water can be good for staying healthy. However, there is no evidence specific foods will help fight this particular virus.

 

2. 'Miracle minerals'

YouTuber Jordan Sather, who has many thousands of followers across different platforms, has been claiming that a "miracle mineral supplement", called MMS, can "wipe out" coronavirus.

It contains chlorine dioxide - a bleaching agent.

Sather and others promoted the substance even before the coronavirus outbreak, and in January he tweeted that, "not only is chlorine dioxide (aka MMS) an effective cancer cell killer, it can wipe out coronavirus too".

Last year, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned about the dangers to health of drinking MMS. Health authorities in other countries have also issued alerts about it.

The FDA says it "is not aware of any research showing that these products are safe or effective for treating any illness". It warns that drinking them can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and symptoms of severe dehydration.

 

3. Home-made hand sanitiser

There have been many reports of shortages of hand sanitiser gel, as washing your hands is one key way to prevent spread of the virus.

As reports of the shortages emerged in Italy, so did recipes for home-made gel on social media.

But these recipes, alleged dupes for one of the country's most popular brands, were for a disinfectant better suited for cleaning surfaces and, as scientists pointed out, not suitable for use on skin.

Alcohol-based hand gels usually also contain emollients, which make them gentler on skin, on top of their 60-70% alcohol content.

Professor Sally Bloomfield, at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, says she does not believe you could make an effective product for sanitising hands at home - even vodka only contains 40% alcohol.

For cleaning surfaces, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says most common household disinfectants should be effective.

 

4. Drinkable silver

The use of colloidal silver was promoted on US televangelist Jim Bakker's show. Colloidal silver is tiny particles of the metal suspended in liquid. A guest on the show claimed the solution kills some strains of coronavirus within 12 hours (while admitting it hadn't yet been tested on Covid-19).

The idea that it could be an effective treatment for coronavirus has been widely shared on Facebook, particularly by "medical freedom" groups which are deeply suspicious of mainstream medical advice.

Proponents of colloidal silver claim it can treat all kinds of health conditions, act as an antiseptic, and state it helps the immune system. But there's clear advice from the US health authorities that there's no evidence this type of silver is effective for any health condition. More importantly, it could cause serious side effects including kidney damage, seizures and argyria - a condition that makes your skin turn blue.

They say that, unlike iron or zinc, silver is not a metal that has any function in the human body.

Some of those promoting the substance for general health on social media have found their posts now generate a pop-up warning from Facebook's fact-checking service.

 

5. Drinking water every 15 minutes

One post, copied and pasted by multiple Facebook accounts, quotes a "Japanese doctor" who recommends drinking water every 15 minutes to flush out any virus that might have entered the mouth. A version in Arabic has been shared more than 250,000 times.

Professor Trudie Lang at the University of Oxford says there is "no biological mechanism" that would support the idea that you can just wash a respiratory virus down into your stomach and kill it.

Infections like coronaviruses enter the body via the respiratory tract when you breathe in. Some of them might go into your mouth, but even constantly drinking water isn't going to prevent you from catching the virus.

Nonetheless, drinking water and staying hydrated is generally good medical advice.

 

6. Heat and avoiding ice cream

There are lots of variations of the advice suggesting heat kills the virus, from recommending drinking hot water to taking hot baths, or using hairdryers.

One post, copied and pasted by dozens of social media users in different countries - and falsely attributed to Unicef - claims that drinking hot water and exposure to the sun will kill the virus, and says ice cream is to be avoided.

Charlotte Gornitzka, who works for Unicef on coronavirus misinformation, says: "A recent erroneous online message...purporting to be a Unicef communication appears to indicate that avoiding ice cream and other cold foods can help prevent the onset of the disease. This is, of course, wholly untrue."

We know the flu virus doesn't survive well outside the body during the summer, but we don't yet know how heat impacts the new coronavirus.

Trying to heat your body or expose yourself to the sun - presumably to make it inhospitable to the virus - is completely ineffective, according to Prof Bloomfield. Once the virus is in your body, there's no way of killing it - your body just has to fight it off.

Outside the body, "to actively kill the virus you need temperatures of around 60 degrees [Celsius]", says Professor Bloomfield - far hotter than any bath.

Washing bed linen or towels at 60C is a good idea, as this can kill any viruses in the fabric. But it's not a good option for washing your skin.

And having a hot bath or drinking hot liquids won't change your actual body temperature, which remains stable unless you are already ill.

Virus slowdown 'is possible'

World Health Organization (WHO) boss Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has been trying to be reassuring in his daily briefing.

"Now that the #coronavirus has a foothold in so many countries, the threat of a pandemic has become very real. But it would be the first pandemic in history that could be controlled. The bottom line is: we are not at the mercy of this virus.

"We need to remember that with decisive, early action, we can slow down the #coronavirus and prevent infections. Among those who are infected, most will recover."

Italy's 'darkest hour'

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has called the coronavirus outbreak Italy's "darkest hour" but said the country would overcome it if people followed the rules.

"These days, I have been thinking about the old speeches of Churchill - it is our darkest hour, but we will make it," he told La Repubblica newspaper.

British leader Winston Churchill used the phrase during World War Two.

He said he himself had had the virus test which had come out negative, Ansa news agency reports.

Novel coronavirus symptoms usually take 5 days to appear, study says

From Arman Azad

People infected by novel coronavirus tend to develop symptoms about five days after exposure, and almost always within two weeks, according to a study released Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

That incubation period is consistent with previous estimates from public health officials, and the findings suggest that 14 days of quarantine are appropriate for people potentially exposed to the coronavirus.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has used that standard during the current pandemic — recommending, for example, that people self-quarantine for two weeks after traveling to countries with widespread coronavirus transmission, such as Italy or South Korea.

To estimate the incubation period, researchers scoured more than 180 reports of coronavirus in places without widespread transmission of the virus — areas, in other words, where infection was likely due to outside travel.

Because the study was conducted early in the coronavirus epidemic, community transmission at the time was limited to Wuhan, China. That allowed researchers to estimate the “time of exposure” to the coronavirus by determining when a person was in Wuhan — the only plausible source of infection. By comparing travel to Wuhan with the emergence of symptoms, researchers could then estimate an incubation period for the virus: usually about five days, and rarely more than 12.

It’s possible, the researchers said, that their study may have focused on more severe cases of the virus – which are likelier to make the news and catch the attention of public health officials. The incubation for mild cases, then, might differ somewhat.

மாஸ்க் - சானிட்டைஸர்கள் கிடைக்கவில்லையென்றால், என்ன செய்யவது? - மருத்துவர் விளக்கம்

மாஸ்க் இருந்தால் அதை உபயோகப்படுத்துங்கள், இல்லையென்றால், அதற்குப் பதில் கைக்குட்டையை உபயோகப்படுத்துங்கள். ஒரு நாளைக்கு ஒரு கைக்குட்டை என உபயோகப்படுத்திப் பழகுங்கள். தும்மல் இருமலின் தீவிரத்தைப் பொறுத்து, அதன் வீரியத்துக்கேற்ப அடிக்கடி கைக்குட்டையை மாற்றிக்கொள்வது நல்லது. தும்மல், இருமல் தொந்தரவு இருப்பவர்கள், முடிந்தவரை உங்களை நீங்களே தனிமைப்படுத்திக்கொள்வது சிறப்பு.

சானிட்டைஸர் என்பது தொற்றைத் தடுக்க உதவும் என்பது நிரூபிக்கப்பட்ட உண்மைதான். சானிட்டைஸர் தட்டுப்பாடு ஏற்பட்டுள்ள பகுதிகளில் இருப்பவர்கள், அதற்குப் பதிலாக சோப் வாட்டர் கொண்டு அடிக்கடி கைகழுவுவது நல்ல பலனைத் தரும்.

எந்தச் சூழலிலும், தன்சுத்தம் மட்டுமே கொரோனாவைத் தடுக்க முழுமையாக உதவும் என்பதால், அதில் மட்டும் எப்போதும் கவனமாக இருங்கள்" என்றார்.

Coronavirus confirmed as pandemic by World Health Organization

The coronavirus outbreak has been labelled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the number of cases outside China had increased 13-fold over the past two weeks.

He said he was "deeply concerned" by "alarming levels of inaction" over the virus.

A pandemic is a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.

However Dr Tedros said that calling the outbreak a pandemic did not mean the WHO was changing its advice about what countries should do.

He called on governments to change the course of the outbreak by taking "urgent and aggressive action".

"Several countries have demonstrated that this virus can be suppressed and controlled," he said.

"The challenge for many countries who are now dealing with large clusters or community transmission is not whether they can do the same - it's whether they will."

Governments had to "strike a fine balance between protecting health, minimising disruption and respecting human life".

"We're in this together to do the right things with calm and protect the citizens of the world. It's doable," he said.

How Coronavirus Hijacks Your Cells

The SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus

The virus that causes Covid-19 is currently spreading around the world. At least six other types of coronavirus are known to infect humans, with some causing the common cold and two causing epidemics: SARS in 2002 and MERS in 2012.

covid-spikes.png

and lipids

Covered With Spikes

The coronavirus is named after the crownlike spikes that protrude from its surface. The virus is enveloped in a bubble of oily lipid molecules, which falls apart on contact with soap.

covid-ace2-wide.png

Entering a Vulnerable Cell

The virus enters the body through the nose, mouth or eyes, then attaches to cells in the airways that produce a protein called ACE2. The virus is believed to have originated in bats, where it may have attached to a similar protein.

Releasing Viral RNA

The virus infects the cell by fusing its oily membrane with the membrane of the cell. Once inside, the coronavirus releases a snippet of genetic material called RNA.

covid-hijacking.png

Viral RNA

Hijacking the Cell

The virus’s genome is less than 30,000 genetic “letters” long. (Ours is over 3 billion.) The infected cell reads the RNA and begins making proteins that will keep the immune system at bay and help assemble new copies of the virus.

Antibiotics kill bacteria and do not work against viruses. But researchers are testing antiviral drugs that might disrupt viral proteins and stop the infection.

covid-replication.png

Viral proteins

Making Viral Proteins

As the infection progresses, the machinery of the cell begins to churn out new spikes and other proteins that will form more copies of the coronavirus.

Assembling New Copies

New copies of the virus are assembled and carried to the outer edges of the cell.

covid-exit-wide.png

Spreading the Infection

Each infected cell can release millions of copies of the virus before the cell finally breaks down and dies. The viruses may infect nearby cells, or end up in droplets that escape the lungs.

covid-immune-wide.png

Immune Response

Most Covid-19 infections cause a fever as the immune system fights to clear the virus. In severe cases, the immune system can overreact and start attacking lung cells. The lungs become obstructed with fluid and dying cells, making it difficult to breathe. A small percentage of infections can lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome, and possibly death.

covid-leaving.png

Leaving the Body

Coughing and sneezing can expel virus-laden droplets onto nearby people and surfaces, where the virus can remain infectious for several hours to several days. Infected people can avoid spreading the virus by wearing a mask, but healthy people do not need to wear a mask unless they are caring for a sick person.

A Possible Vaccine

A future vaccine could help the body produce antibodies that target the SARS-CoV-2 virus and prevent it from infecting human cells. The flu vaccine works in a similar way, but antibodies generated from a flu vaccine do not protect against coronavirus.

The best way to avoid getting infected with the coronavirus and other viruses is to wash your hands with soap, avoid touching your face, keep your distance from sick people and regularly clean frequently used surfaces.

I had COVID-19 and here is my story

t_200_200_b7904e4d245258f1a077e4c3a05365
Elizabeth Schneider
1d

I had COVID-19 and here is my story. I made this post public out of several requests from my friends who asked me to share. I hope it gives you some good information and peace of mind!

First how easily you can get it. I believe I caught it when attending a small house party at which no one was coughing, sneezing or otherwise displaying any symptoms of illness. It appears that 40% of the attendees of this party ended up sick. The media tells you to wash your hands and avoid anyone with symptoms. I did. There is no way to avoid catching this except avoiding all other humans. 40% of folks were all sick within 3 days of attending the party all with the same/similar symptoms including fever.

Second, the symptoms appear to be different depending on your constitution and/or age. Most of my friends who got it were in their late 40s to early 50s. I’m in my mid 30s. For us it was headache, fever (for first 3 days consistently and then on and off after 3 days), severe body aches and joint pain, and severe fatigue. I had a fever that spiked the first night to 103 degrees and eventually came down to 100 and then low grade 99.5. Some folks had diarrhea. I felt nauseous one day. Once the fever is gone some were left with nasal congestion, sore throat. Only a very few of us had a mild itchy cough. Very few had chest tightness or other respiratory symptoms. Total duration of illness was 10-16 days. The main issue is that without reporting a cough or trouble breathing many of us were refused testing. I got tested through the Seattle Flu Study. This is a RESEARCH study here in Seattle and they have been testing volunteers for strains of the flu to study transmission within the community. A few weeks ago, they started to test a random subset of samples for COVID-19 infection. They sent my sample to the King County Public Health Department for confirmation; however, I was told that all of the samples that have tested positive in the research study have been confirmed by Public Health.

image.php?type=thumbnail_580x000&url=162

As of Monday March 9th, it has been 13 days since my symptoms started and more than 72 hours since my fever subsided. The King County Public Health Department is recommending you stay isolated for 7 days after the start of symptoms or 72 hours after your fever subsides. I have surpassed both deadlines so I am no longer isolating myself however I am avoiding strenuous activity and large crowds and I obviously will not come near you if I see you in public. I was not hospitalized. Not every country is hospitalizing everyone with a COVID-19 infection and in my case, and in many other cases, I didn’t even go to the doctor because I was recovering on my own and felt it was just a nasty flu strain different from the ones I have been protected from with this season’s flu vaccine.

I also truly believe the lack of testing is leading to folks believing that they just have a cold or something else going out into public and spreading it. And worse folks with no symptoms are also spreading it as in the case of a person attending a party or social gathering who has no symptoms.

I know some folks are thinking that this can’t/won’t impact them. I hope it doesn’t but I believe that the overall lack of early and pervasive testing damaged the public’s ability to avoid the illness here in Seattle. All I know is that Seattle has been severely impacted and although I’m better now I would not wish this very uncomfortable illness on anyone.

One thing that I believe may have saved me from getting worse respiratory symptoms is the fact that I consistently took Sudafed, used Afrin nasal spray (3 sprays in each nostril, 3 days at a time and then 3 days off), and used a Neti pot (with purified water). This could have kept my sinuses clear and prevented the symptoms from spreading to my lungs. This is not medical advice: I’m simply sharing what I did and correlating it with the fact that I had no respiratory symptoms. The two could be entirely unrelated based on the viral strain and viral load that I received.

I hope this information helps someone avoid getting sick and/or push to get tested sooner rather than later so you know to isolate before it gets worse or to get medical care if you have respiratory distress. Hand washing doesn’t guarantee you won’t get sick, especially when folks without symptoms are contagious and could be standing right next to you in any given social situation. You more likely than not will not die, but do you want to risk spreading it to a loved one over 60 or someone with an immunity issue? Stay healthy folks!

பார்ட்டி ஒன்றுக்கு சென்ற அவருக்கு 5 நாட்கள் கழித்து முதலில் தலைவலியும் அதைத் தொடர்ந்து  காய்ச்சலும், உடல் வேதனையும் ஏற்பட்டது. காய்ச்சல் 103 டிகிரியாக உயர்ந்த தால், கட்டுப்படுத்த முடியாத அளவுக்கு உடல் நடுக்கம் ஏற்பட்டது.

உடனே பக்கத்து மருந்துக் கடையில் உடல் வலி மற்றும் காய்ச்சலுக்கான மாத்திரைகளை வாங்கி எடுத்துக் கொண்டதில் காய்ச்சல் படிப்படியாக குறைந்தது. அப்போது கொரானா குறித்த தகவல்கள் புயலாய் பரவ ஆரம்பித்தன.

தம்முடன் பார்ட்டியில் பங்கேற்ற சிலருக்கு கொரனா தொற்று இருப்பதாக முகநூலில் படித்ததை அடுத்து ரத்த பரிசோதனை செய்து கொண்ட அவருக்கும் தொற்று உறுதியானது.

ஜலதோஷம், இருமல் போன்ற அறிகுறிகள் இல்லாமலும் கொரனா தாக்கும் என்பதை உணர்ந்து கொண்ட அவரை குறைந்தது 7 நாட்கள் வீட்டில் தனிமையில் இருக்குமாறு சியாட்டில் மருத்துவ அதிகாரிகள் கேட்டுக் கொண்டனர்.

நல்ல ஓய்வு, நிறைய தண்ணீர் குடிப்பது என ஒரு வாரத்தை செலவிட்ட பிறகு  இயல்பான நிலைமைக்கு திரும்பியதாக அவர் கூறியிருக்கிறார்.

கொரோனா தொற்றிலிருந்து உங்களை காத்து கொள்வது எப்படி?

கொரோனா வைரஸ்: சர்வதேச நிலை என்ன? மரணங்கள் எவ்வளவு? - எளிய விளக்கம்

சீனாவில் பரவ தொடங்கிய கொரோனா வைரஸ் தொற்று தற்போது 110 நாடுகளுக்கு பரவியுள்ளது. இந்த கொரோனா தொற்றுக்கு இதுவரை 4200 பேர் உயிரிழந்துள்ளனர்.

கொரோனா என்றால் என்ன? அது எவ்வாறு பரவுகிறது என்பதை பார்ப்போம்.

கொரோனாவிலிருந்து எவ்வாறு தற்காத்து கொள்ளலாம்?

கொரோனாவிலிருந்து உங்களை தற்காத்து கொள்வதற்கான சிறந்த வழி நன்றாக கைகளை சுத்தம் செய்வது. சோப்பையும், தண்ணீரையும் கொண்டு உங்கள் கைகளை நன்றாக சுத்தம் செய்யுங்கள்.

கொரோனா பாதிக்கப்பட்ட ஒருவர் இரும்பும்போது, அந்த வைரஸ் காற்றில் கலக்கலாம். இதை சுவாசித்தாலோ அல்லது அந்த வைரஸ் துகள்கள் பட்ட இடத்தை தொட்டு பின் கண்கள், மூக்கு அல்லது வாயை தொட்டாலோ தொற்று ஏற்படலாம்.

இருமும் போதோ அல்லது தும்மலின் போதோ டிஷ்யூ வைத்துக் கொள்ள வேண்டும். கைகளை கழுவாமல் முகத்தை தொடக்கூடாது. மேலும் தொற்று இருக்கலாம் என சந்தேகிக்கப்படும் நபர்களிடமிருந்து தள்ளி இருத்தல் வேண்டும்.

 

 

 

கொரோனா வைரஸ்: சர்வதேச நிலை என்ன? மரணங்கள் எவ்வளவு? - எளிய விளக்கம்படத்தின் காப்புரிமை Empics

கொரோனா தொற்று நுரையீரலை பாதிக்கும். அதன் அறிகுறி முதலில் காய்ச்சலாக தொடங்கும், பின் வறட்டு இருமல் ஏற்படும் அதன்பின் சுவாசப் பிரச்சனைகள் ஏற்படும்.

சராசரியாக கொரோனா அறிகுறிகள் வெளியே தெரிய ஐந்து நாட்கள் ஆகும் என விஞ்ஞானிகள் தெரிவிக்கின்றனர். ஆனால் சிலருக்கு அதைக்காட்டிலும் தாமதம் ஆகலாம் என்றும் கூறப்படுகிறது.

சிலருக்கு உடல் நலக்குறைவு இருப்பது தென் படுவதற்கு முன்னரே அவர் தொற்றை பரவலாம் என்றும் கூறப்படுகிறது.

 

கொரோனா வைரஸ்: சர்வதேச நிலை என்ன? மரணங்கள் எவ்வளவு? - எளிய விளக்கம்

 

56,000 நோயாளிகளிடம் உலக சுகாதார நிறுவனம் சோதனை செய்தது; அதில் கண்டறிந்தவை:

6% பேரின் உடல்நிலை மோசமாக உள்ளது என்றும் அவர்களுக்கு - நுரையீரல் பழுது, செப்டிக் ஷாக் (தொற்றிலிருந்து நம்மைக் காக்க நோய் எதிர்ப்பு சக்தி ரத்தத்தில் வெளியிடும் ரசாயனம் தவறாக நமக்கு ஆபத்தை உருவாக்கும் நிலை), உறுப்புகள் செயலிழப்பு மற்றும் இறப்பு ஏற்படும் ஆபத்து ஆகியவை தென்படுகிறது.

14% பேருக்கு தீவிர அறிகுறிகள் காணப்படுகின்றன. - சுவாப்பதில் சிரம்ம் மற்றும் நுரையீரலுக்குள் சரியாக காற்று செல்லாமை

80% பேருக்கு மிதமான அறிகுறிகள் - காய்ச்சல், இருமல் சிலருக்கு நிமோனியாவும் இருக்கலாம்.

வயதானவர்கள், ஆஸ்துமா, நீரிழிவு மற்றும் இதய நோய்கள் உள்ளவர்கள் இதனால் அதிகம் பாதிக்கப்படலாம்.

 

கொரோனா தொற்று எந்தளவிற்கு ஆபத்தானது?

கொரோனா தொற்று குறித்த அச்சம் பரவலாக இருந்தாலும், இதனால் இறப்பு ஏற்படும் விகிதம் மிகவும் குறைவே. ஒரு சதவீதத்திலிருந்து 2 சதவீதம் வரையே இறப்பு விகிதம் என கூறப்படுகிறது. ஆனால் அதை உறுதியாக கூற முடியவில்லை.

சிகிச்சையும் மருந்தும்…

இதற்கான சிகிச்சை என்பது நோயுற்றவர்களின், நோய் எதிர்ப்பு சக்தி வைரஸ் தொற்றை எதிர்த்து போராடும் வரையில் உடலை தொடர்ந்து இயங்க செய்வதாகும். சுவாசக் கருவிகள் கொண்டு ஆதரவு வழங்க வேண்டும்.

கொரோனா தொற்றுக்கான மருந்து கண்டுபிடிக்கும் பணி நடைபெற்று வருகிறது.

கொரோனா வைரஸ் பரவல் தீவிரமானால் இந்தியாவால் சமாளிக்க முடியுமா?
