Coronavirus: All you need to know

New Delhi, March 5,2020:The coronavirus outbreak, that originated in Wuhan, China, and has now entered multiple countries, including India, has had thousands dead and even more infected. Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the virus, its spread and safety tips.

What is coronavirus and what are its symptoms?

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Distress syndrome.

Whenever you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing it’s important to seek medical attention promptly as this may be due to a bacterial infection, viral infection, allergy or some serious respiratory infection. If you or your known has a travel history to China and you have above symptoms 2019-nCoV could be one of the causes.

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

Where do coronaviruses come from?

A novel Coronavirus is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans and has been reported from December 31, initially from Wuhan in China and is spreading worldwide now. How humans acquired this virus is not confirmed as yet. Some studies indicate that it would have come from bats, others indicate some other animals like cats, camels or even snakes being the animal source.

How does coronavirus spread?

Coronaviruses are zoonotic viruses, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. Hence, hand hygiene is a very essential component of preventing the infection.

Maintain at least a metre (three feet) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever.

What is the best way to protect yourself from coronavirus?

Washing your hands with an antiseptic hand wash like Savlon and water kills the virus if it is on your hands. Hands come in contact with various surfaces and if we touch that hand on face or bring it close to nose we can acquire the virus. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illnesses such as coughing and sneezing. When someone coughs or sneezes they secrete small droplets containing the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus.

Hence, the distance can help your chance of acquiring and avoiding public places. Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, and thoroughly cooking meat and eggs.

How dangerous is it?

As with other respiratory illnesses, infection with 2019-nCoV can cause mild symptoms, including runny nose, sore throat, cough, and fever. It can be more severe for some people and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as, diabetes and heart disease) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus.

Can 2019-nCoV be transmitted from person to person?

Yes, the 2019-nCoV causes respiratory disease and can be transmitted from person to person, usually after close contact with an infected patient, for example, in a household, workplace, or health care centre.

According to Dr Sachin Verma, a leading health care practitioner, the best way to safeguard you from a possible case of nCoV is to keep hygiene in mind. He suggests: “Wash your hands and/or sanitise them as frequently as possible. Make sure to maintain a distance from a person who is showing symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, flu, etc. Recent cases have shown patients to demonstrate abdominal pain as a symptom. Keep an eye out for this. Check with a medical practitioner immediately in case you find yourself unwell or demonstrating any of the known symptoms.”

West Bengal has highest Covid mortality rate: IMCT

Kolkata, May  6,2020:The accusation of playing down the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the state, repeatedly hurled at West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee by Opposition parties ranging from the BJP to the CPM, was today echoed by the inter-ministerial central team (IMCT) sent to the state by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

While winding up their two-week visit to the state, IMCT team leader Apurva Chandra wrote to Chief Secretary Rajiva Sinha that West Bengal was having the highest Covid mortality rate in the country. “The state needs to be transparent and consistent in reporting figures and not downplay the spread of the virus,” he wrote, putting the figure of mortality rate in the state to 12.8 per cent which was “by far the highest in the country.”

Chandra also mentioned that the state did not support the central team.

India's COVID cases to peak in June-July: AIIMS director

New Delhi, May8,2020:All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Director Dr Randeep Guleria on Thursday said India may witness the peak of COVID-19 cases in June or July. "The answer of when will be the peak of cases of COVID-19 in India depends upon modelling data. National and international both experts are analysing the data. Most of them have guessed that India will most likely see the peak in June or July," he said.

Dr Guleria added, earlier it was analysed that the peak will be in May but due to extended lockdown the peak has also been extended.

It is a dynamic process that depends upon various factors. It is a long-lasting battle. Cases will come even after the peak is passed. People's lifestyle in terms of travelling and socialising will change," he said.

The AIIMS Director also said only with time the quantum of effect of the lockdown in the country will be known. The cases are increasing with the tally on Thursday at 52,952, including 1,783 deaths according to the Union Health Ministry data. The total tally includes 35,902 active cases while 15,266 patients have recovered from COVID-19.
