Things you need to know about recent changes in Coronavirus.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought upon a standstill situation globally. Well, we all know about the origin of Corona is China, it all started from Bat Consumption, while some suspect Bio War Testing failure. Till date, we have approx. 653,907 cases where 139,591 have recovered while 30,361 lives were lost in the process. The Death Rate has risen from 2% to 14% and its antidote is not yet found but experts have suggested to minimalize the spread by following social distancing and proper precaution like frequent handwash and sanitizing, avoid touching of face or eyes, contact with another human should be reduced as much possible, because even if you are not infected or cured, you still have a chance of reinfection or you can be a carrier in process of spreading the virus which can result in community spread, which is currently happening in many states of Italy, India, Pakistan etc. The entire world is under lockdown, people are threatened about the situation, praying for the best for the world and their families.
The major need of the hour is to realise One’s duty for oneself and society, we need to cautiously handle the situation rather than panicking and worsening the condition or taking it lightly and joking about it we rather need to act responsibly because in situations like this the maximum damage that is caused is due to chaos, unawareness or carelessness.
THAT ONLINE COMPANY stands firmly to support the cause of creating awareness, COVID-19 is a respiratory disease-causing failure of the system, in most of the Corona Death there is a case of Lung Failure, or similar respiratory problems and their traces have been found, in fact, it is mostly killing elderly people with the weak immune system and prior respiratory problems.
It is said to spread through water droplet (saliva) through sneezing or transfer of the virus from one surface to another through any physical contact. The survival of virus is predicted for 14days without a body carrier just on the surface, also the infected person shows symptoms within 10 days, thus people suspected to have the virus are being sent in isolation for 14 days to avoid any kind of spread.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may also have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea. These symptoms are usually mild in the beginning and gradually increase. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms further, so they don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
COVID-19 virus cannot be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates: MYTH
From the shreds of evidence received so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather, Regardless of climate. So, every individual needs to adopt protective measures against COVID-19. The best way to protect yourself against is by frequently cleaning your hands or sanitizing it. By doing this one can eliminate viruses that may be on the hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching eyes, mouth, and nose.
Taking a hot bath does not prevent the new coronavirus disease
Taking a hot bath will not prevent you from catching COVID-19. Your normal body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C, regardless of the temperature of your bath or shower. Actually, taking a hot bath with extremely hot water can be harmful, as it can burn you. Rather maintain social distancing and avoid getting in touch of anyone as the person might not necessarily be infected but can be an unknown carrier of the virus.
The new coronavirus CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites.
Till date, there has been no information or evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. The new coronavirus or COVID-19 is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Also, avoid close contact with anyone who is coughing and sneezing.
How effective are thermal scanners in detecting people infected with the new coronavirus?
Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people who have already developed a fever (i.e. have a higher than normal body temperature) because of infection with the new COVID-19. However, they cannot detect people who are infected but are not yet sick with a fever. This is because it takes between 2 and 10 days before people who are infected become sick and develop a fever.
Does the new coronavirus affect older people, or are younger people also susceptible?
People of all ages can be infected by COVID-19. Older people and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus.
However, WHO has advised people of all ages to take steps to protect themselves from the virus, for example by following good hand hygiene, good respiratory hygiene and maintain social distancing.

Till the time we have a cure for this Virus COVID19 we need to stand by one another but only metaphorically, we would rather suggest you to “please stay home”.
Maintain Social Distancing, quite literally duhh.
We need to flatten this curve of rising spread but in the process, we need to ensure that we have our curves of smile intact because we all need to stand mentally strong to fight on physically. After all, this ends, we will have an entirely new world. If we survive this quarantine, let's continue pursuing the hobbies that we develop, no matter how minor it may be: cooking, singing, dancing or anything at all, let’s be off our schedules and enjoy life with people we live around, and cherish everything that we have kept ignoring for so long, just for the sake of Fake Living Standards.
The notion of Nature cleaning up the mess is viral all around as corona is spreading only amongst humans and all animals remain safe, but what we need to realise that after all this is over, do not mess with nature against its course to go through the clearing again. And definitely no more Bats, or Snakes or Aliens.
Just Don’t …PLEASE!!
