The basic rules of the fight against the epidemic of Coronavirus they are already fully disclosed by the media to all Brazilian society. Therefore, everyone should strive for their protection and also for the members of their coexistence to stay out of this pandemic. This is the best weapon to face the virus, to know about the disease for your personal, family and friends protection.
The disease when it is clinically installed is serious, with multiple organs that can be attacked by the virus. Immune defenses are better in younger people, but are more deficient in older people. Therefore, this is the group of patients that must be protected most efficiently.
The coronavirus pandemic left everyone surprised and perplexed. Today the whole world is focusing on measures that can slow its spread. The order now is to decrease its proliferation.
Restricting people's mobility should be the most practical way to contain them. People and their families must be confined so that the spread of the disease can be controlled. Preferably in a ventilated place. Although coronavirus infection does not cause major complications for young people, it is dangerous for those over 60. In addition, over the age of 80, the risk of mortality reaches 20%.
The clinical worsening is observed by the progression of breathing difficulty. These patients are usually intubated to receive assisted ventilation. Obviously, prolonged lodging favors secondary infection. Under these conditions, the maintenance of life requires attendance by professionals specialized in intensive therapy, whose cost is extremely expensive.
Coping with epidemiological protective measures is the best weapon we have available. Specific drugs are still being tested and when they have an effect, then they will be produced on a large scale. All of this, therefore, is still a long way from our current need. Vaccine production generally takes more than 2-5 years.
What remains for us to fight the epidemic is to know some basic hygiene knowledge that is already well publicized by the media. We must practice them blindly. In addition, follow the principles of isolation as the main measure to decrease the spread of the disease. Avoid practicing absurd proposals for new personal care and fancy products to kill the coronavirus.
The use of a mask for oro-nasal protection is essential. You should use it every time you leave the house. This protects you and so do the people around you. In addition, interpersonal detachment should be practiced. This will probably go a long way and we will certainly have to do it throughout this year. One should not remain in a closed and crowded environment, as this disease is extremely transmissible. One asymptomatic person is enough to pass the disease on to others who share this environment. Therefore, interpersonal distancing should be the rule. Try to be in good health, eat, exercise daily and sleep well.
Washing your hands and face constantly is the rule to be followed. Alcohol gel when you can't wash them. That simple. Both cause damage to proteins and lipids in the virus capsule, and therefore prevent their multiplication and dissemination in the host - man. You should only be informed on official websites of the Ministry of Health and in specific societies such as Medical Clinic, Pulmonology, Geriatrics, Infectious Diseases, Cardiology, etc.
In time, all this suffering will be just reminders that one day it happened. Let us learn to learn from this new reality. Man must live with respect for his neighbor and for all living beings.
