  • Preventing the Spread of COVID-19
    You have gotten nitty-gritty down; you are making sure your hands are washed regularly, and you are staying away from friends and family. However, you may still have queries. Are you implementing the measures well? How precisely does social distancing and the wearing of masks will help? How do these measures help in the recovery of the economy? So how does this deadly virus spread? COVID-19 is believed to spread predominantly from person to person. Droplets that are released when infected individuals cough or sneezes, might get into the mouths or noses of others who are close, or maybe be breathed into their lungs. A COVID-19 infected person, even one showing no signs, may emit micro-droplets when talking or breathing. The micro-droplets are transmittable disease-causing particles that can glide or float around in the air even for three hours. Another person can inhale these droplets and can contract the coronavirus. That is the reason behind wearing masks when you are out in public to cover your mouth and nose. Moreover, the virus can quickly spread through contact with infected surfaces or items. For example, an individual can contract COVID-19 through contact with an item with the virus on it and then touching your face.
    You can still get infected and to ensure that the virus doesn’t spread further you ought to ensure there is contact tracing. Anybody that comes into close contact with a COVID-19 infected individual is more susceptible of becoming infected themselves, and more likely to infect others. Contact tracing is necessary as it seeks to prevent more spread of COViD-19 by quickly isolating and notifying people who may have contracted the virus and are contagious, so that they can prevent further infection of people. Contact tracing begins with finding persons that an individual newly identified with COVID-19 has made contact with since they become infectious. In the case of COVID-19, one may be infectious 48 to 72 hours before they started to identify the signs. The contacts are alerted regarding their exposure, where they are notified on what symptoms to pay attention to and advised to cut off contact for some time and get medical care as required should they start experiencing symptoms.
    Despite the epidemic, states like Texas, people are advocating for the reopening business to cushion the impact of COVID-19 on the economy. That said, the Republican Texas House Speaker, Dennis Bonnen, states that those demanding for an immediate reopening of businesses fail to wear protective gear like masks in public which exposes the public’s health to further damage and putting the state’s brittle economy in danger. If Texas and the larger world is to beat this pandemic, people should be serious about their safety.
