WHAT IS COVID-19?
COVID-19 is the disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Simply put, this disease is a respiratory disease that can cause symptoms such as dry cough, fever and shortness of breath. Most cases are mild and disappear within 10 to 14 days without medical intervention. However, a certain percentage of cases develop severe pneumonia which requires urgent and critical care; otherwise, it can lead to death.
The first case of the disease was reported in Wuhan, China, in the last days of December 2019. Since then, it has spread to more than 210 countries and territories around the world and has infected millions of people. Unfortunately, as SARS-CoV-2 is a new strain, there are still many unknowns. In particular, there is no known cure for COVID-19, with the exception of treatments for pneumonia and other symptoms. Experts from around the world are also still researching a potential vaccine.
THE ROLE OF DEEP DECONTAMINATION AND DISINFECTION IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19
While there is still a lot to discover about SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19, there are also some known facts. First, the virus spreads easily through the viral droplets of an infected person. Second, one of the best, if not the most important, ways to combat COVID-19 is good hygiene. This includes hand washing and proper etiquette when coughing or sneezing. Cleanliness also plays a big role. Coronaviruses are surrounded by a protective layer of lipids, which can be easily destroyed by soap. Combined with rapid disinfection and other techniques, thorough cleaning can effectively prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses.
