How you can protect yourselves from coronavirus?by Hei White Heiwhite
Coronavirus initiated with some kind of pneumonia symptoms in patients from Wuhan, a strong virology center in China has now taken over the whole world under its curse. A disease that started as an epidemic is now converted into a pandemic. As for now what known is that people with low immunity are prone to this virus. Researchers all over the world are working day and night exhaustively to discover an antidote to the virus. As per WHO (World health organization) saying making an antidote for a virus generally take 5 years of research with complete testing. With the extreme efforts of researchers, it can be reduced to one and a half years but nor more than that. So, what are the chances or probability that the vaccine or antidote discovered will work? Nobody really knows the answer to this serious question right now. What we can do is take care of our families and ourselves by fighting it with the help of COVID-19 antigens. You can learn more about it on our website https://www.genemedi.net/. To do this we must first understand what this virus is and how dangerous it can be.
What is Coronavirus and how dangerous it can be?
At the end of 2019, reports emerged from china about the outbreak of unexplained pneumonia with the rapid increase in cases around Wuhan's Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market where live fish, poultry, and birds are sold in bulk daily. It is suspected to be like previous outbreaks of similar diseases, including SARS (Severe acute respiratory syndrome) and MERS (Middle East respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus) that have arisen from live animal markets.
Coronavirus is a family of large viruses usually targeting the respiratory system of the host. The name “Corona” is derived from the Latin word corona which means a crown, due to the spiky fringe which surrounds the outer layer of the virus. Species like bats, cats, and birds act as a spreading agent for these viruses. Just seven of the viruses are known till now to infect humans like SARS, MERS, and COVID-19.
SARS is believed to have originally developed in China from bats then transmitted to cats and then finally to humans. MERS has transmitted from bats to camels and then to Middle East humans in 2003. No one truly knows where the COVID-19 initially came from. The novel coronavirus, similar to SARS is highly contagious. The size of the pandemic depends on how quickly a virus is transmitted from one person to another. Still, doctors and scientists don't know how exactly COVID-19 spreads, all we have is a lot of data on how MERS and SARS have affected. These viruses are primarily spread by exposure to droplets caused by sneezing or coughing. In the case of COVID-19, it is now been transmitting from human to human just by touching. Symptoms may include Fever, Cough, Shortness of breath.
Precautions to avoid the transmission of the virus:
Scientists and health specialists around the world are working hard to stop the spread of the virus. The new coronavirus has already affected thousands of people. The death toll and number of active patients affected by the virus is increasing day-by-day. The pandemic situation was stated as a "public health emergency of international concern" by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 30 January. Several preventive measures are issued to avoid the transmission which includes:
- WHO has recommended the use of the heavy-duty N95 respiratory mask.
- Experts recommend to regularly wash your hands throughout the day.
- Stop touching your face and eyes with unwashed hands.
- Keep a distance from anyone who coughs or sneezes.
- Avoid traveling to long distances.
- Prefer home quarantine if you have traveled to other countries.
How can you protect yourself from getting affected by the COVID-19 virus?
To save yourself from contamination; apart from preventive measures, you must improve the immunity strength of your body. To do so you must first understand the basic concept of antigen and antibodies. As per Merriam Webster, Definition of antigen is as follows: any substance (such as an immunogen or a hapten) foreign to the body that evokes an immune response either alone or after forming a complex with a larger molecule (such as a protein) and that is capable of binding with a product (such as an antibody or T cell) of the immune response. To understand it in simple words antigens alerts your body’s immune system to produce antibodies whenever it comes in contact with any virus, to fight from the virus.
They can be both either inside your body i.e. internal antigens or foreign, that come in contact with the body from an external source. GeneMedi is a reputed name in viral and non-viral gene expression, gene transfer, gene editing, and gene therapy. GeneMedi produces a life-saving coronavirus antigen that boosts your body’s immunity and makes your body ready to fight with viral infections like COVID-19. We always look forward to your good health.
