Coronavirus information from China
A friend sent this to me and it looks like some helpful information so I wanted to share with you as it might be beneficial.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS
> Last evening dining out with friends, one of their uncles, who's graduated
> with a master's degree and who worked in Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong
> Province, China) sent him the following notes on Coronavirus for guidance:
> 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
> 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
> 3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature
> of just 26/27 degree Celsius (79/81 degrees Fahrenheit). It hates the Sun.
> 4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to
> the ground and is no longer airborne.
> 5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so
> if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon
> as you can with a bacterial soap.
> 6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will
> kill it.
> 7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink
> liquids with ice.
> 8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for
> 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your
> eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
> 9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in
> warm water will suffice.
> 10. Can't emphasise enough - drink plenty of water!
> THE SYMPTOMS
> 1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting
> 3/4 days
> 2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and
> then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
> 3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
> 4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're
> drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.
> SPREAD THE WORD - PLEASE SHARE.
