We AKINHANDICRAFT on this special day hoping for a good health for you and your family be safe and avoid going outside as much as you can is this pandemic situation.
Memorial Day is finally here, which usually means barbecues, tons of sun, and
the start of summer. As school starts to finally wind down, plans of heading
out to the beach or just having a good time with friends are starting to be
made before finals and goodbyes happen. While we don’t know how we’ll be
able to celebrate Memorial Day this year, as the Coronavirus Pandemic has put
many events on pause, the long weekend is the unofficial start to summer —
and that’s definitely something worth posting about
In December 2019, a completely unique virus called SARS-CoV-2 has resulted in the outbreak of a respiratory disorder called COVID-2019.
Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) pandemic has placed an overwhelming health and
economic burden and, possibly, has had a dramatic impact on emotional regulation.
Reducing interactions among people is seen as critical to reducing the propagation of the novel coronavirus (COVID-2019 A variety of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs), such as closure of non-essential businesses, stay at home orders, or school closings have been put in place to contain the virus , with apparent success in advanced countries.
COVID-2019 may be a zoonotic virus. From phylogenetics analyses undertaken with available full genome sequences, bats appear to be the reservoir of COVID-2019 virus, but the intermediate host(s) has not yet been identified. However, three important areas of labor are already underway in China to tell our understanding of the zoonotic origin of this outbreak. These include early investigations of cases with symptom onset in Wuhan throughout December 2019, environmental sampling from the Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market and other areas markets, and also the collection of detailed records on the source and kind of wildlife species sold at the Huanan market and also the destination of these animals after the market was closed.
Routes of transmission
COVID-2019 is transmitted via droplets and fomites during close unprotected contact between an infector and infectee. The airborne spread has not been reported for COVID-2019 and it’s not believed to be a serious driver of tratransmission supported available evidence; however, it will be envisaged if certain aerosol-generating procedures are conducted in health care facilities. Fecal shedding has been demonstrated from some patients, and a viable virus has been identified during a limited number of case reports. However, the fecal-oral route doesn’t appear to be a driver of COVID-2019 transmission; its role and significance for COVID-2019 remain to be determined. Viral shedding is discussed within the Technical Findings
Main control measures
Monitoring and reporting: COVID-2019 was included within the statutory
reporting of infectious diseases on 20 January and plans were formulated to
strengthen diagnosis, monitoring, and reporting.
Strengthening ports of entry and quarantine: The Customs
Department launched the emergency plan for public health emergencies at ports
across the country and restarted the health declaration card system for entry and
exit into cities similarly as strict monitoring of the temperature of entry and exit
Treatment: For severe or critical patients, the principle of “Four Concentrations”
was implemented: i.e. concentrating patients, health workers, resources, and
treatment into special centers. All cities and districts transformed relevant hospitals,
increased the number of designated hospitals, dispatched medical staff,
and founded expert groups for consultation, so on minimizing mortality of severe
patients. Medical resources from everywhere China are mobilized to support the
medical treatment of patients in Wuhan.
Epidemiological investigation and close contact management:
Strong epidemiological investigations are being disbursed for cases, clusters, and
contacts to spot the source of infection and implement targeted control
measures, like contact tracing.
Social distancing: At the national level, the State Council extended the Spring
Festival holiday in 2020, all parts of the country actively canceled or suspended
activities like sports events, cinema, theatre, and schools and colleges all told parts
of the country postponed reopening after the vacation. Enterprises and institutions
have staggered their return to figure. Transportation Departments set up thousands
of health and quarantine stations in service areas, and in entrances and exits for
passengers at stations. Hubei Province adopted the
foremost stringent control measures, like suspension of urban conveyance,
including subway, ferry, and long-distance passenger transport. Every citizen needs
to wear a mask publically. Home support mechanisms were established. As a
consequence of all of those measures, public life is extremely reduced.
Funding and material support: Payment of insurance was confiscated by
the state, similarly because the work to boost accessibility and affordability of
medical materials, provide personal protection materials, and ensure basic living
materials for affected people.
Emergency material support: The government restored production and expanded production capacity organized key enterprises that have already begun to exceed current production capacity, support local enterprises to expand imports, and used cross-border e-commerce platforms and enterprises to assist import medical materials and improve the power to ensure supplies.
