At the rate at which the illness is spreading, critically ill patients will be unable to get life-saving care. It has to be slowed. Unfortunately, the FDA has yet to approve any medications that have shown any form of good effect on the virus for this pandemic.
The only preventative measures are the techniques we’ve adopted as our new normal to restrict the spread of instances. They are as follows: maintain proper hand hygiene, social distance, and quarantine. Early diagnosis, isolation, and treatment are also successful.
Another important factor is determining whether you are a close contact and taking safeguards. A close contact is someone who spends 15 minutes or more within six feet of a person infected with the coronavirus during the course of 24 hours.
We know that physical distance from people is the most crucial preventive step you can take when out in public, no matter how close contact you have. Close contacts are more vulnerable to illness than anybody else. When someone tests positive for COVID-19, contact tracers should identify their close connections and advise them to confine themselves to prevent the virus from spreading further.
Also, in some cases, social separation may be difficult to achieve. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) amended their recommendation in early April to urge people to use a cloth face covering in public places.
The idea for the facial covering is to contain and prevent transfer of secretions from individuals, particularly those with asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic illness.
