Coronavirus is a family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe respiratory problems, according to the World Health Organization.
The symptoms range from a very mild, cold-like illness to a severe lung infection.
New cases of COVID-19 tend to increase as it’s spread rapidly to different states.
According to CDC, the virus is transmitted via respiratory droplets and may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Though spread mostly through close contact and is more dangerous for people who have underlying health conditions, so far, the virus has proved more dangerous for the elderly and people with disabilities.
Follow these Safety Tips:
- Wash your hands for about 20 seconds with soap and hot water
- Use tissue for coughs and sneezes
- Avoid touching your face
- Avoid close contact with sick people
- If your symptoms get worse or are not better after 7 days go to a doctor
While there’s no effective cure for the virus just yet, people have been using new air duct cleaning technologies for air purification by not only reducing dust, but actually substantially reducing microbial populations in the air and on the surfaces of their properties.
