Coronavirus – Symptoms, Course, Treatment

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has developed into a pandemic. Covid-19 lung disease affects people around the world and the number of deaths is increasing.

How can you protect yourself from infection? – SOS tips:

“Novel coronavirus” – that was the provisional name of the virus at the beginning of the pandemic. Often it was initially referred to as “2019nCoV”. The virus now has the official name: SARS-CoV-2. It triggers the disease “Covid-19”.

In order to protect yourself as well as possible from being infected with Covid-19, you should know how an infection occurs: The SARS-CoV-2 virus is transmitted from person to person. On the way of a droplet infection, for example when someone coughs up. Or via a smear infection, if you touch contaminated objects with viruses on them, such as door handles or light switches, and then touch your mouth, nose or eyes.

How to protect yourself:

Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap: at least for a period of 20 seconds, because this is the only way to reduce the number of germs on the hands to a thousandth and less. If your hands are very dirty, you should wash for more than 20 seconds. – For a better assessment of how long 20 seconds are, you can sing the Happy Birthday song twice.
