Our VJNSS Team L Santhi Animator and G. Satyanarayana giving awareness about Coronavirus in Munthamamidi Village and explaining how we will avoid the risk of spreading infection.
The virus is transmitted through direct contact with respiratory droplets of an infected person (generated through coughing and sneezing), and touching surfaces contaminated with the virus. The COVID-19 virus may survive on surfaces for several hours, but simple disinfectants can kill it.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and shortness of breath. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia or breathing difficulties. More rarely, the disease can be fatal.
Here are four precautions can take to avoid infection:
- Wash your hands frequently using soap and water or an alcohol-based Sanitise.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue, when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid close contact with anyone who has cold or flu-like symptoms.
- Go to the doctor if you have a fever, cough or feel that it is difficult to breathe.
