by Premier Hospitals | May 22, 2020 |

Everyone's life is at stake due to the Novel Coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic might change the world forever because coronavirus has become a world-shattering disease with far-ranging consequences. This much is certain that this disease has shattered many lives, and it continues. Adoption of different preventive measures such as maintaining physical distancing and focusing on infection control practices and much more mentioned in the above infographic can save you and your family from COVID19. The coronavirus outbreak came to light in December 2019, in Wuhan city, China. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease that is mainly transmitted when an infected person coughs or sneezes and when the generated droplets inhale by others. It can also be transmitted when a person is in physical contact with the infected person. Most of the people infected with coronavirus might experience mild to moderate respiratory disease and recover with standard treatment. But older adults and those who suffer from cardiovascular disease, respiratory diseases, diabetes, and cancer might develop more severe illness. The best way to stop the pandemic and to slow down transmission is knowing about the COVID19 virus, how it spreads, how to follow preventive measures, and creating awareness in people nearby. Protect yourself and others from COVID19 by washing hands with alcohol-based sanitizers frequently and don't touch your face. The first case of coronavirus(COVID19) pandemic in India was reported in the month of January 2020. In India, it affected more than one million people, and worldwide it affected more than 5 million people and counting. The death has raised to 3.5 million people nearly all over the world and counting. Since there is no definite medicine found to cure the disease, we have to be aware all the time.
