What do we know about coronavirus and how do we avoid it?

What is coronavirus?

A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to severe pneumonia. This causes shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems. As well as older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

The Novel Coronavirus is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China.

Novel Coronavirus is a new respiratory illness that has not previously been seen in humans. The risk of getting the illness in the UK is possible.

How is coronavirus spread between people?

Because it’s a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person. However, similar viruses spread by cough droplets.

Though viruses spread through droplets in the air.  The bigger worry is always transmission via what doctors call “fomites,” infected items. For example, a virus gets on a surface, a shoe or a doorknob or a tissue. You touch the surface and then next touch your face or rub your nose, it’s a great way to acquire illness.

Here are our main takeaways from that experience for ordinary people on the ground:

1. Wash your hands frequently.

2. Don’t go to the office when you are sick. Don’t send your kids to school or daycare when they are ill, either.

3. To help to avoid spreading the viruses, we recommend using one or more of our sanitising solution services.
