Awareness of corona virus
Date: Feb 04, 2020
Keeping the global concern of corona virus in mind, spreading this reminder awareness among our student/employee pool of CGSD.
What are the symptoms?
Patients who have contracted the virus have had fever, shortness of breath and coughing. The virus can also cause pneumonia. Elderly citizens tend to be more often affected by the virus than younger people. While some coronaviruses can cause the common cold, others can develop into more serious illnesses that lead to difficulty breathing, pneumonia and death in extreme cases with elderly and those with low immune systems. As the new coronavirus generally affects the lower respiratory tract, most of those infected exhibit a dry cough, shortness of breath or pneumonia, but not a sore throat.
Please also remember that this is most likely to affect those with low immune system. However, it has also been shared that there are much deadlier viruses which have affected people earlier, so as prevention is always better than cure, sharing some preventive measures so that unnecessary anxiety is not caused among everyone.
How can you prevent it?
- Stay away from infected people.
- Wash hands at regular intervals with soap and warm water.
- Avoid crowded places till end of March 2020.
- Cover mouth with handkerchief when sneezing or coughing.
- Seek medical help urgently if you feel you have any of the above symptoms.
All parents are requested to be aware and cautious about the health and safety of all citizens. If you see that you or your child are showing any of the above mentioned symptoms, please do not send your child to school and seek medical help urgently.
