Elite Medical Center would like to provide a status update on Conovirus Covid 19 strain. It’s understandable that this novel viral strain has caused a lot of fear, confusion since its discovery in Wuhan, China. Most cases of Covid 19 strain have caused mild respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat. Some patients were more affected by Covid-19 by developing pneumonia and respiratory distress, primarily in older and sicker population. Currently, strict travel restrictions are imposed when traveling to and from China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and S. Korea.
If someone comes in contact with Covid-19 proven case, they are quarantined for 14 days. Once 14 days are over, this person can’t transmit the virus if no respiratory symptoms occurred.
Every local hospital is in contact with the local health department for any potentially exposed people testing kits are available and are reported to CDC within 24 hours. Prevention recommendations are:
Hand washing at least for 20 seconds with soap or hand sanitizer,
Stay 6 feet away from any sick people with sneezing or cough,
Stay home if you experience fever, cough, or sneezing,
Avoid nonessential travel and crowded places.
Health risk remains low but we need to take all the necessary precautions to prevent further spread of the Covid-19 strain.
Several Pharma companies are actively working on vaccine trials in humans and promising data is coming out on several antiviral and antimalarial drugs for Covid-19 treatment.
We urge you to call or message us through the Health Gorilla portal and leave a message with any questions or concerns about potential exposure to the Covid-19 Coronovirus strain.
