I believe everyone is thinking
How to spend a good Chinese New Year with your family happily!
But just as this new year is approaching
There is bad news:
A new type of coronavirus pneumonia
Hundreds of people have been infected!
It suddenly broke out yesterday afternoon
A man from Brisbane, Australia
I was quarantined just after arriving in Australia from Wuhan
Today, his isolation has been lifted
So, first of all, don’t panic
This new virus is not a SARS virus
But it should be noted that it has now been determined
The mode of transmission of the new disease is from person to person!
So everyone needs to pay more attention in daily communication!
As of this writing, the number of confirmed cases in China has reached 440
And the number may continue to rise
On January 1, the Australian Department of Health issued a notice to the Australian public regarding this new virus outbreak.
In the announcement, the Ministry of Health stated that so far, although the epidemic has not posed a direct threat to Australia, it still needs to keep close attention.
Airlines must also promptly report any symptoms of infectious diseases such as fever, sweating, and chills that appear to any passengers in accordance with the law.
But the latest news on January 1
A man in Queensland, Australia
Symptoms similar to new coronavirus pneumonia
Queensland government official stated
Waiting for the results of further examination of this patient
It is reported that this man has just returned from visiting relatives in Wuhan!
Coronavirus is a type of virus that exists widely in nature
The virus is named because it looks like a crown under an electron microscope
Coronavirus only infects vertebrates
Can cause human and animal respiratory, digestive and nervous system diseases
The new coronavirus discovered this time
It is very different from SARS coronavirus and MERS coronavirus
Like humans, different viruses are close relatives
But temperament, attitude, and handling are very different
Although the new coronavirus is a close relative of SARS
But it has not yet shown the terrifying characteristics of SARS
Therefore, don't panic about this!
The World Health Organization has named it
"2019-nCoV, the 2019 novel coronavirus"
What are the clinical manifestations of patients with this infection?
General symptoms:Fever, fatigue, dry cough, dyspnea gradually
Some patients have mild onset symptoms but no fever
In severe cases:Acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock, difficult to correct metabolic acidosis, coagulation dysfunction
Most patients are moderate to mild, with a good prognosis, and a few patients are critically ill or even die.
Is the current epidemic controllable?
Experts believe that the current epidemic is still preventable and controllable.
However, the source of the new coronavirus infection has not been found, the transmission route of the epidemic has not been fully grasped, and the mutation of the virus still needs to be closely monitored
No vaccine, but curable
For the disease caused by the new coronavirus
Doctors usually give symptomatic treatment
Deal with the various symptoms of the patient accordingly
Fewer people, wear more masks
2. Wear masks when going out
3. Avoid close contact with patients with cough and fever
Do not touch poultry and wash hands frequently
1. Wash your hands with running water, soap or hand sanitizer
2. Do not go to the seafood market, live poultry market or farm
3. Do not touch wild animals, birds or their droppings
4. Do not eat raw milk, eggs and meat, they must be thoroughly cooked and no game
Anti-smog masks cannot protect against flu viruses
There are all kinds of masks on the market, and young people like to buy and wear masks with their own personality.
But a closer look shows that many masks are made of cotton or chemical fiber. This kind of mask can keep warm and prevent smog, but it has no protection against influenza viruses. The fabric has a large pore size and cannot filter viruses.
There are also people who wear masks with breathing valves, mistakenly thinking that these masks are more protective. In fact, they are also anti-smog masks and cannot block the virus.
To prevent influenza, we need to buy medical surgical masks at the pharmacy to prevent influenza
The nose clip must be shaped during use, and the mask must always fit the nose and face.
It is necessary to avoid touching the outside of the mask (contaminated surface) during use, wash hands after touching the outside (contaminated surface) before wearing, before and after taking off. It must be used once and avoid re-wearing the used mask.
The filtering effect of N95 masks on viruses is equivalent to that of medical protective masks, but the level of protection is higher
People with extremely low immunity can also choose. Those with low immunity need to take oseltamivir and peramivir within 48 hours after exposure to flu patients without mask protection for post-exposure prevention.
The most authoritative information
Information about this epidemic is now available on almost the entire network
So where is the most authoritative and accurate information?
Just last night, CCTV connected via live broadcast and interviewed
Leader of the high-level expert group of the National Health Commission responsible for handling the epidemic
Academician Zhong Nanshan
Maybe some friends are not familiar with Zhong Lao
But he was already a big name more than ten years ago
Zhong Nanshan, a well-known respiratory disease expert in China, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering
Known as the first person in China to fight SARS
During the 15-minute interview, Academician Zhong Nanshan expressed the following views based on the latest situation currently available:
1. The new coronavirus pneumonia can be transmitted from person to person
2. The virus is likely to come from game, such as bamboo rats, badgers and other wild animals
3. The novel coronavirus is different from the SARS virus.Virus infection is climbing. The current case fatality rate cannot explain all the problems. It depends on the development of the disease.
4. Ordinary people should be more vigilant, do not go to Wuhan under special circumstances, go to the fever clinic if you have a cold
5. It is not necessary to wear N95 masks, ordinary (surgical) masks can also block the spread of droplets
