All You Need To Know About Coronavirus

With advanced modular cleanroom solutions, ACH Engineering is working on providing a controlled environment and is devoted to your health. Thus, at the wake of the coronavirus pandemic here is our brief resource about the threatening nCoV outbreak across the world. This will help you shape a brief idea about all you need to know about Coronavirus.

What is Coronavirus?

The World Health Organization (WHO) describes Coronavirus as a large family of viruses that can cause cold and fever to critical diseases like Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). It was discovered in 2019 and is zoonotic in nature, meaning it transmits from animals to human beings. Coronavirus is also called Covid-19. China discovered the novel Coronavirus and named it SARS-CoV-2

Symptoms of Coronavirus

According to WHO, Covid-19 patients are asymptomatic implying they do not experience any symptom despite the presence of the virus in their body. It may take up to 2 to 14 weeks for the human body to show symptoms of Coronavirus.

Initial symptoms of Covid-19 are fever, cough, and breathing problems. This is further leading to pneumonia, multi-organ failure, and even death. As on 17 March 2020, there are 7000+ deaths registered due to the Covid-19 virus in 154 countries. You can check the official global statistics of Coronavirus here.

Precautions of Coronavirus

The most important part of the ACH Engineering all you need to know about Coronavirus resource is – the precautions to swear by in order to battle against the global nCoV outbreak:

  1. Maintain minimum 1-meter distance from the sick.
  2. If you feel sick (fever and dry cough), seek medical advice and stay home. Self-Isolation is effective.
  3. While sneezing, cover your mouth with shirt sleeves or use a tissue. Discard used tissue immediately.
  4. Avoid using unwashed hands-on nose, mouth, and eyes.
  5. Wash your hands frequently with water and soap. If unavailable, use sanitizer with 60% alcohol.
  6. Disinfect objects and surfaces around you with a cleaning spray or wipe.
  7. Avoid shaking hands with others.

Role of Cleanroom for Coronavirus

The airborne particulate size of Coronavirus is 0.1 micrometers (lesser than SARS and influenza virus).  They easily penetrate in human lungs and blood majorly impacting human health. Fortunately, proper air filtration limits the entry of virus particles and reduces the scope of molecular contamination. Thus, cleanrooms can potentially reduce the spread of Coronavirus with the high efficiency HEPA filters.
