Boris Johnson has no idea what to do when it comes to the Coronavirus and he’s scratching his head and his butt, not knowing what to do, and he unquestionably hasn’t shaken any hand of someone with Coronavirus, even though he kind of made out that he did.
If he’s to keep this virus from spreading any further, then he should be handing out masks to everyone in the United Kingdom free of charge and he should be opening up abandoned aircraft hangers that are no longer in use and making them into temporary infirmaries.
There are countless military doctors and nurses on the ground that could be utilised, and just because the milder weather will be on its way shortly does not guarantee that the Coronavirus will wither away.
Masks are the way to go and the government needs to be giving them out, and even though this is a new illness, it’s not known precisely how Coronavirus spreads from person to person. Still, similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.
It’s extremely doubtful it can be spread through things like packages or food but just in case, gloves should be handed out as well free of charge.
It’s going to cost the government millions of pounds but does that matter when people are dying?
The people in this country have to do their bit by scrubbing their hands with soap and water regularly.
Always wash your hands when you get home or into work, and use sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
You would have noticed that people have been bulk buying sanitizer. The government should be giving this out free as well, as well as tissues, and if people have to stay indoors because they’re sick, the government should make sure that they’re guaranteed sick pay.
Sadly, no one knows for sure whether or not the more temperate weather will curb the Coronavirus.
Viruses that cause influenza or milder Coronavirus, and there are seven in total that affects humans, some much less concerning than others which usually wane in warmer months, although people spend less time inside in the warmer weather, which means that viruses could circulate more easily.
However, because SARS-CoV-2 is so new, there’s no way to say for sure whether the virus will undergo the same seasonality as other viruses.
There’s one main difference between the novel Coronavirus and the flu, immunity. Because many of us have built up an immunity to the flu, this isn’t the situation with this new illness.
And we won’t be off the hook just because we’re getting to springtime and the warmer weather, although I’m sure that spring will be greatly embraced this year, we unquestionably shouldn’t be letting our guard down just because it will be warming up outside.
And everyone should still follow the preventative steps suggested.
There’s another potential way Coronavirus can spread between people and that’s by faecal transmission, and according to recent research from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC), those with confirmed cases of the novel Coronavirus have live virus in stool specimens, suggesting there’s a possible faecal-oral route for the virus, as well.
Unfortunately, the only way to know if someone has COVID-19 is to test them, that’s because the manifestations of the illness look remarkably similar to that of the common cold or flu with a cough, fever and body aches.
And it’s important to know that not everyone who’s infected with Coronavirus exhibits symptoms, which suggests that they’re asymptomatic carriers who carry it around with them, spreading it to other people, but never falling ill themselves.
While scientists are currently working on a Coronavirus vaccine, it probably won’t be available in time to fight the current outbreak because there has to be an entire vaccine process, from early development through to human testing, which takes time and costs lots of money.
Fortunately, when coming up with a vaccine for the current Coronavirus, researchers may uncover clues that may help treat or even prevent future outbreaks, but of course, by that time there will be another kind of virus that has mutated, of which they won’t have a vaccine.
