Here are the ways of tackling the corona issue
Coronavirus is also known as Covid-19, a deadly disease that originated from Wuhan, China. It is an ‘acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2’. There are 4 common types of Coronavirus in the world. The first type was discovered in Middleast which was found in Camels. The virus that placed the world in new trouble is SARS-CoV-2. Tackling the Corona issue is a troublesome and difficult task as there is no vaccine available in the market yet. However, the researchers in the world are working hard to develop one and we believe that soon they will. There are a number of precautions that one must adopt to avoid themself from getting intact with this deadly virus. Moreover, this virus spreads from person to person or from surface to person as well.
In the later section, we will be discussing the sign and symptoms of the Coronavirus and in addition to this, we will also discuss certain measures we should adopt especially in Pakistan.
Signs & Symptoms of Coronavirus
The signs and symptoms of coronavirus are similar to the common cold. Initially, it starts with simple flu, fever, cough, and shortness of breath. As time passes by, it would lead to pneumonia, respiratory failure, kidney failure, or heart attack. If the situation persisted the patient will ultimately expire. The doctor suggests that if you suffer from common flu, it is better to visit a hospital for the screening of coronavirus. Moreover, patients can adopt preventive measures which will be discussed in a later section.
The signs and symptoms could be summaries as
- Common cold and flu

Tackling the corona issue
As mentioned that the world has not developed any vaccine for this virus. Recently a Representative of Roche Pharmaceutical announced that they have developed the vaccine and is currently in the testing phase. Moreover, the person needs to adopt preventive measurement until the vaccine is not available. In the case of Pakistan, this pandemic is spreading at a slow pace, however, one needs to adopt the preventive measures himself to avoid getting in contact with this virus. In addition to this, the government is also working hard to enforce the rules and regulations and tackling the corona issue. The following are the measures that you should adopt in this scenario to protect your self from this virus.
Take care of your personal hygiene
You must take bath daily at least two to three times a day. In addition to this, you should also clean your hand often with simple bathroom soap. It is mandatory for you to wash your hands before and after eating anything. You can also use antiseptic like Dettol while taking a bath as it kills most of the germs. You must also use fresh and clean clothes daily. The use of hand sanitizers also proved as one of the best protectives measures from this virus. You should also use the tissue only once and must discard it properly.
Use of Masks
The use of a face mask also proved to be a good solution to prevent yourself from direct contact with this deadly disease. As it doesn’t allow the virus from an external environment to enter into the body of a human. Moreover, others can also be protected from your infection if you are infected. N-95 mask proved to be one of the best face masks, however, due to unavailability you can also use other masks as well.
Avoiding going in public
We should avoid going publicly especially unprotected, as the outer atmosphere could be contaminated. Unless there is an emergency we should avoid going outside. Dining outside in open air or even inside the hotels and restaurants or going to the airport could prove to be risky nowadays. For the time being, we should also avoid going to public parks and in large family gatherings.
Cleaning your house
You should clean your house with antiseptic liquids like Dettol surface cleaner. In addition to this clean, your door handles with a new cloth soaked in a Dettol surface cleaner. In this way, you can disinfect the place you are living as well.
Visiting a doctor if you have any symptoms
If you even have a mild cold and cough, I suggest that you should visit a doctor and get yourself properly checked. A minor carelessness could lead to a catastrophic outcome.
Measures that Government introduced in Pakistan
The government of Pakistan has introduced certain protective measures in society to combat this deadly virus. The following are some of the measures
- The parks are closed to the public
- Some of the offices are closed as well for about 3 weeks.
- There is a ban introduced on the public gathering for 3 weeks.
- It is not allowed to dine in restaurants.
- The schools are closed for about 3 weeks.
- Ban is introduced on the marriage ceremonies.
We can finally assert that this deadly virus could defeat, only if we adopt the above-mentioned preventive and protective measures. The government should further expedite their measure and must enforce in every nook and corner of the country to avoid the pandemic of Coronavirus in Pakistan.
