The treatment or preventive vaccine for the new coronavirus called ‘wuhan pneumonia’ has not yet come out exactly. That’s why prevention efforts in life are more important than anything else. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has gathered new coronavirus prevention tips.

What you need to know to prevent new coronaviruses

1. Visiting Wuhan, China, should avoid contact with wild animals

China’s illegal trade in wild animals is cited as a cause of new coronavirus. A new study suggests that the new coronavirus may have spread from snakes to humans. The Centers for Disease Control recommended recommending that China avoid compliance with animal (poultry) and refrain from visiting markets and medical institutions that are at risk of infection.

2. If you have a fever or respiratory symptoms

If you have a fever or respiratory symptoms at the time of entry, you must report them immediately.
When entering the country, you should fill out the Health Questionnaire and report it to the quarantine officer immediately if you have a fever or respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, etc.). If you experience fever or respiratory symptoms within 14 days of returning from Wuhan, China, you should promptly consult with the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (1339) or your local public health center. The Ministry of Health and Welfare said that the symptoms were suspected and that they should not go to the hospital right away. This is to prevent any radio waves in the hospital.

 

3. Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently

The identity of the new coronavirus has not yet been identified, but in the case of infection, the possibility of infection by saliva or hand is also high. If the actual route of transmission is by hand, hand washing should be used to prevent infection. If an infected person or a person incubating the virus touches his or her nose or mouth, the virus gets on his hands, and if he touches the door handle with his hand, the virus can move through the door handle to another’s respirator. Use soap or hand sanitizer to wash your hands evenly over your palm, nails, hands, and wrists for at least 30 seconds.

4. Put a mask on your mouth when you have respiratory problem signs

Infection cases in China are emerging as a possibility of human transmission. Respiratory symptoms, such as coughing, must be worn when using public transportation or in crowded places such as hospitals. If you are coughing without a mask, cover your mouth with your clothes rather than covering your mouth with your hands.

5. Get a flu shot

Getting a flu shot does not prevent you from getting new coronavirus. However, experts point out that influenza vaccination will make a differential diagnosis easier because Korea is currently in a flu season. Even if it is not due to the new coronavirus, the flu epidemic in Korea lasts as long as late April or early May, so older and younger children are encouraged to get it now.
