Coronavirus and the Immune system
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last couple of months, you would have heard about the Coronavirus, or COVID-19. With terms like ‘quarantine’ and ‘pandemic’ being thrown around by media outlets and even governments, its little wonder people are starting to panic.
Australians have a great relaxed attitude to most things however this pandemic needs some thought regarding how to prepare should you or your neighbourhood be affected
Knowledge is power Educate your self what COVID-19 is all about
There is a lot of misinformation in the media, and sometimes in an attempt to protect ourselves, we’re told to take precautions that make things seem worse than they are.
This particular virus has indeed killed more people than the SARS virus. This essentially means the virus is spreading more easily through the population
The virus is a respiratory condition and the main forms of contamination are through respiratory droplets. This means sneezing and coughing.
So, how do we avoid it?
Wash your hands
If an infected person has coughed or sneezed onto a surface and you touch it, you could be at risk. However, washing your hands regularly can reduce this risk. Soap and water is fine. Hand sanitisers can also work, however they need to have a high alcohol content to be really effective.
Avoid those with flu symptoms
Not everybody who has a cold is going to have the virus, so we don’t want to recommend isolating everybody who clears their throat. However, if you’re spending significant time around those with flu symptoms, it would be a good idea to limit your contact with them. Because the virus is spread through droplets in the air, you probably don’t want to share an enclosed space with someone who is coughing and sneezing a lot.
Face masks – are they helpful?
We get some conflicting information here, but most health professionals suggest the standard face masks are too loose-fitting to protect you against air droplets that can carry the virus. However, if you’re caring for someone who is infected or experiencing flu symptoms, it may be helpful for them to wear a mask to prevent the spread.
Sensibly stock your home
There’s no need to run out and clear the supermarket shelves. Coronavirus isn’t an apocalyptic event, but you just need to think practically. For example, if schools were closed for a short time, do you have enough food for the kids. If shops did close, or certain items were more difficult to source, do you have enough pet food and medical supplies? The message is, don’t go crazy – just make sure you’ve got the essentials you need in case you were stuck at home for a couple of weeks.
Are there natural ways to prevent Coronavirus?
It’s been shown that older people and those with current respiratory or health problems are most at risk followed by people with existing health issues or weakened immune systems
