We are up against an unpredictable and deceptive virus that is yet to be cured. Novel COVID-19 virus spread is believed to have been spread from a wet market of Wuhan city in China. As of now, there are 1,055,853 cases of Coronavirus infection with 55,740 deaths.
According to the World Health Organization, the novel COVID-19 virus causes an infectious disease that can infect people to cause chronic respiratory diseases. The infected person can develop mild to moderate symptoms like cold, dry cough, and fever.
Further, this disease will induce respiratory problems that need special treatment. In elderly people with existing medical issues like cardiovascular illness, high blood sugar levels, asthma, and cancer can be seriously infected.
Let’s discover what are the precautionary measures that can help fight Corona?
1. Why and How to use Masks?
There are many maks available in the market. Most of them are advertised as protectors against viruses. But, not all masks are that protective. Though you don’t need the mask as much as you think.
According to WHO, masks should be used only when you are taking care of a person already infected or while you are coughing or sneezing. Masks should be used in tandem with frequent hand washing and alcohol-based hand rub. WHO does not support the reuse of masks. If you are not using N95 mask or FFP3 mask, then you should not wear these masks for more than 8 hours.
The most heart-whelming gesture from a mask manufacturer - “Missouri company”, was to donate masks. They produce FFP3 masks with 99% of filtration capacity. They offered FFP3 masks to healthcare workers and doctors who are fighting the pandemic on the frontlines.
It is one of the proud moments for Green Resources Consulting that they have taken an opportunity to serve our nation's Health Care Facilities. They are cranking out 30,000 masks per day. Their masks are a new design made from bamboo and carbon. Corona Virus is PM 0.1 micron and their Mask FFP3 mask is 99% efficient to 0.007 microns so it is very helpful in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
