All you need to know about Quarantine and Coronavirus
Spending time in quarantine at home is really a difficult task especially for working males and females and it could especially be challenging. However, currently, we can see that almost the whole world is locked down. The reason behind the lock-down is Coronavirus or Covid-19. Covid-19 is a deadly disease that can transmit from person to person. In severe cases, the patient could expire. The death rate of this deadly disease is not too high, however, there is no vaccine available in the market that’s why this pandemic could prove fatal.
Reason for quarantine
Quarantine is a word that means to restrict the movement to avoid the spreading of a pandemic. As mentioned earlier that Coronavirus could be transmitted from person to person through direct or indirect contact. As mentioned earlier that there are no vaccines and medication available in the market therefore the best way to protect oneself from getting attacked by this virus is to isolate your self in the home. The doctors also recommend us to stay home even if we have common flu. The human body already has low immunity during flu, so the attack of this virus could prove fatal. In addition to this, an infected person can also infect others. Therefore, it is compulsory for him to quarantine himself.
