What exactly is Covid-19?

As many people already know, Coronavirus or Covid-19 is a virus that originated from Wuhan – China. The virus thought to have originated from a bat, but scientists haven’t been able to confirm it 100%. Coronavirus is a family of viruses that are found in both animals and humans that have been active since 1960. SARS and MERS being some of the types of coronaviruses, whilst the one that caused the current pandemic in 2020 is called Covid-19. The virus first appearing in early December 2019 in China, and has since been the persistent cause of mostly all countries closing their borders.

How can I tell I have Coronavirus?

It certainly is a scary question to ask yourself knowing how infamous the virus is. The primary symptoms of the virus being:

  • a fewer – this means your body temperature is higher and/or you feel hot to touch on your back or chest (you usually don’t need to measure your temperature)
  • coughing frequently – this means coughing a lot more than usual, having 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours or so. (If you frequently couch in general like myself, it may be a lot worse than usual)
  • losing or having a different sense of taste or smell – this means you’ve discovered you can’t smell or taste anything, or things beginning to taste or smell different to normal.

In the more severe cases, pneumonia, kidney failure and death can occur. To this day, more than 965,000 people have died from the pandemic, and about 31,000,000 people have been infected.

How can we fight back against Covid-19?

There’s several measures you can take to ensure that you will be protected from catching Covid-19, or if you are already infected to protect others. Fortunately enough protection against the virus is relatively simple. Personal hygiene playing a huge role in protecting against the spread of Coronavirus and ensuring the safety of others. The most notable suggestions being:

  • Washing your hands frequently
  • Don’t touch your face with your hands if you have been in public where someone could have inadvertently touches railings, door handles, etc. whilst carrying around the virus.
  • Keep a distance at stores and other places of at least 2 meters
  • Make sure to wear a mask whenever you go inside closed spaces like stores, supermarkets, public transport, etc.

When can you expect to travel again?

So far most countries have shut down their borders to limit the spread of Coronavirus and we can’t predict how much the situation will change in the following months or god forbid years. Travelling during this pandemic is troublesome, people having to go into a 14 day quarantine once they come back from Vacation in order to see if they develop any symptoms of Covid-19.
