Never before, researchers say, have so many experts in so many countries focused simultaneously on a single topic and with such urgency. Nearly all other research has ground to a halt.
Never before, scientists say, have so many of the world’s researchers focused so urgently on a single topic. Nearly all other research has ground to a halt.
especially in homes, hospitals and other confined spaces. The pathogen can be carried on tiny respiratory droplets that fall as they are coughed or sneezed out. It may also be transmitted when we touch a contaminated surface and then touch our face.Is there a vaccine yet?
No.Such rapid development of a potential vaccine is unprecedented, but even if it is proved safe and effective, it probably will not be available for 12 to18 months.What makes this outbreak so different?Unlike the flu, there is no known treatment or vaccine, and
It seems to be more lethal than the flu, but the numbers are still uncertain. And it hits the elderly and those with underlying conditions — not just those with respiratory diseases — particularly hard.What should I do if I feel sick?If you’ve been exposed to the coronavirus or think you have,
and have a fever or symptoms like a cough or difficulty breathing, call a doctor. They should give you advice on whether you should be tested, how to get tested, and how to seek medical treatment without potentially infecting or exposing others.How do I get tested?
If you’re sick and you think you’ve been exposed to the new coronavirus,They will decide if you need to be tested. Keep in mind that there’s a chance — because of a lack of testing kits or because you’re asymptomatic, for instance — you won’t be able to get tested.
What if somebody in my family gets sick?If the family member doesn’t need hospitalization and can be cared for at home, you should help him or her with basic needs and monitor the symptoms, while also keeping as much distance as possible,according to guidelines issued by the C.D.C.
If there’s space, the sick family member should stay in a separate room and use a separate bathroom. If masks are available, both the sick person and the caregiver should wear them when the caregiver enters the room. Make sure not to share any dishes or other household items and to regularly clean surfaces like counters, doorknobs, toilets and tables. Don’t forget to wash your hands frequently.
Should I wear a mask?Expertsare divided on how much protection a regular surgical mask, or even a scarf, can providefor people who aren’t yet sick. The W.H.O. and C.D.C. say that unless you’re already sick, or caring for someone who is, wearing a face mask isn’t necessary. And stockpiling high-grade N95 masks will make it harder for nurses and other workers to access the resources they need. But researchers are also finding that there are more cases of asymptomatic transmission than were known early on in the pandemic. And a few experts say that masks could offer some protection in crowded places where it is not possible to stay 6 feet away from other people. Masks don’t replace hand-washing and social distancing.
Should I stock up on groceries?Plan two weeks of meals if possible. But people should not hoard food or supplies. Despite the empty shelves,And remember to wipe the handle of the grocery cart with a disinfecting wipe and wash your hands as soon as you get home.

دول الابطال بجد أطباء مستشفي النجيلة بقالهم 60 يوم بعيد عن اهلهم وحياتهم عشان ينقذوا حياة الناس. شكرا لكل اطباء وتمريض مصر كل الدعم ليكم This is an unfortunate reality. Definitely an interesting one. I am actually confused why at-home test kits have not become widely available yet. I wonder whether demands for it being ‘free’ are slowing down the process
peterbakernyt Somebody tell Nunes that peterbakernyt Dang... this should restore EVERYONE'S faith in science! The best expert is the one that says “I don’t know but I will find out” be cautious with experts that pretend to have all answers! realDonaldTrump I just want to say people i know are working very hard on cancer, research and work has not stopped, they are prioritizing the lab workers who deal with patient tests so that they make sure our most vulnerable are given everything they can provide in this perilous time.
Ok And we're fucked elamin88 Existential threats have a way of doing that That’s the way it should always be Hats off to every one of them Rangeeni Turns out that far from descending into a violent “war of all against all”, we become better and rise to the challenge. trishgreenhalgh It highlighted the arrogance of 70% published literature and became a great global equalizer
SethAbramson Why can’t HCW in hospitals wear those PPE? Instead they’re being told not to wear mask in the hallways. Would hospital Administrators come & visit the HCW’s without mask? I hope the virus disappear quickly! Hope the world peaceful! frazierarchive science! Well maybe if you did this for Global Warming, Food insecurity, Housing Insecurity, Employment for all, Population Control and may other topics we could solve most of the worlds problems by 2030.
I think hearing that is very promising. I cant recall when all the world's scientists focused on a joint effort like this. I have confidence that something will come from this effort in a relatively short time. If not the cure/vaccine, maybe a solution to create them. I hope that all countries in the world will take this virus seriously! And wear a mask, wash hands frequently, and gather less! Doctors everywhere should also protect themselves! Can learn anti-epidemic experience from China!
So has mine... Are you Trumpers who screamed so loudly about Hillary’s inaction at Benghazi that resulted in 4 deaths going to scream as loudly when Trumps inaction causes 100,000 deaths? 🇺🇸 I’m glad you’re living your globalist dreamy fairytale, but 7000 (seven thousand, read it out loud) people died in my region alone, and more than 10k in my whole country. Stop writing bullshit.

Johnson & Johnson to Begin Human Trials of Covid-19 Vaccine by SeptemberJohnson & Johnson said that it had made progress on a vaccine to prevent Covid-19 and that the product could be ready in early 2021. Whaaaat? It's too late in early 2021. 2/3 of population would be infectious at that time. That's hopeful news, however, it doesn't mean that precautions should be relaxed any time soon. Still needed is a successful cure for the virus.
