5 Myths to Know About CoronaVirus (Covid-19 in Nigeria)

0

You have probably heard alot about coronavirus and what it’s doing to most people infected with it? Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.

The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing.

Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze.

It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.

5 Myths to Know About CoronaVirus (Covid-19 in Nigeria)

Masks don’t guarantee protection against COVID-19. Masks can protect you to some degree, For example, if someone who has it sneezes, you’re less likely to take in airborne particles.

That said, the eyes are another pathway for getting sick, and unless you’re wearing something crazy like a gas mask, you’re still at risk. It’s better to simply keep away from crowded areas and stay home as much as possible if you live in an area with community spread.

We won’t have a vaccine for a while. Creating a vaccine for COVID-19 isn’t a simple process.

The National Institutes of Health begins testing for a vaccine on Monday, with many others likely following soon. Still, these things can’t be rushed or they could end up being ineffective.

It’s also a long process to go from early tests to full clinical trials. This process is expected to take around 12 to 18 months.

Don’t count on warm weather to get rid of coronavirus. Yes, flu is seasonal but that’s not necessarily the case for COVID-19.

There’s plenty of reason to expect the virus to continue its spread for a while. The bottom line is we don’t know for sure, but don’t just expect it to go away suddenly. And even if it does? So did the Spanish Flu of 1918, before it came back in full force.

Most especially those in Africa claiming hot weather can kill it, the answer is NO.

This isn’t just “like the flu”. Yes, the flu kills many each year, around .1% of its victims. Despite some of the misinformation you’ve heard about COVID-19, it’s mortality rate is higher. We don’t know with any certainty what the mortality rate is, but it’s certainly higher than that.

Right now it’s believed to be around 2-3%. Also, keep in mind that means nothing. For example, Italy has around 24,000 cases so far and deaths around 1800 (that’s 7%). It’s best to be cautious, don’t just expect this to be an ordinary case of the flu, because it’s a different virus and should be treated as such.
