Published by Support on April 15, 2020 in category: Current Event

As our community in Philadelphia continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic, it is important each of us does our best to stay informed. Each day brings new insights and develops. The more you understand, the better you can protect yourself, your family, and your neighbors.

There is still no known cure for coronavirus. There are many myths claiming you can kill an infection or diagnose yourself using do-it-yourself techniques. Please fact-check this advice with reputable organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. Do not spread any information you do not know to be true. False coronavirus tips can cause people in our community to neglect important warning signs or delay essential medical treatment.

Coronavirus is highly contagious, and each individual is responsible for taking preventative measures to protect themselves and their neighbors. Stay at home as much as possible. If you must go out into the community for essential work or errands, maintain at least six feet between yourself and others. Wash your hands frequently, disinfect surfaces on your property, and consider wearing a cloth mask in public or around high-risk family members.

Familiarize yourself with the signs of a coronavirus infection. Common symptoms include dry cough, fever, and shortness of breath. If you experience any of these signs, contact your doctor for further instructions. For more severe symptoms, seek medical attention promptly. The CDC’s list of emergency warning signs includes:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • New confusion
  • Inability to arouse
  • Bluish lips or face
  • Pain or pressure in the chest

Individuals over the age of 60 and those who have pre-existing medical conditions are at increased risk of complications or fatality due to coronavirus. However, no one should assume they are safe from severe infection due to age or physical health.

Research shows the virus remains viable on many surfaces for hours and even days. Consider hiring a professional contractor to deep clean your home or business. 911 Restoration of Philadelphia is a great local resource.
