THE KEY TO DEALING WITH COVID-19 OR CORONAVIRUS

A CLEAN AND SANITARY WORKSPACE IS YOUR BEST WEAPON AGAINST CORONAVIRUS

First identified in the Hubei’s capital, Wuhan, the coronavirus outbreak of 2019 was quick to spread across the globe. On the 11th of February, 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO), gave it its official name — COVID-19. It’s important to note that, while coronaviruses are not something new, this particular outbreak is something different altogether.

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog. In today’s article, we’ll talk about the COVID-19 situation and give you a couple of tips on minimising the potential threats to your company.

Keep reading and learn everything that you need to know about COVID-19, including:

During our talks and presentations, we often point to the importance of maintaining a clean, tidy and hygienic space. Sadly, we find that, more often than not, our words fall on deaf ears. Of course, keeping your office, storefront or client meeting areas clean is valuable from a business image standpoint — no business owner can dispute that (even though some have tried). But there is a much more important factor, yet often overlooked factor at play here — the health and wellbeing of your employees. Currently, workplace hygiene should be the number one concern of any business owner, looking to protect their company from COVID-19.

WHAT ARE CORONAVIRUSES?

There are many types of coronaviruses, some of which affect humans, while others only infect animals. All of the previously observed cases have been thoroughly documented and successfully dealt with by scientists. Coronavirus symptoms are similar to those of a common flu, which has led to the general public hastily dismissing the situation at first.

However, experts warn that, while most people that get infected with COVID-19 make a swift recovery, some individuals may experience severe symptoms. As of the time of writing this article, the virus seems to have the worst impact on the elderly, as well as those with an already weakened immune system.

HOW THE CORONAVIRUS SPREADS?

COVID-19 spreads similarly to flue — through fluid droplets. When an infected individual coughs or exhales, they can contaminate the nearby surfaces and spaces. If others come in contact with these surfaces and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth, they can also get infected.

WHO IS AT RISK?

As we already noted, the majority of people, infected with COVID-19 make a swift recovery after a short period of mild symptoms. Complications are reported to occur for patients with an already weakened immune system, like those with a history of diabetes, heart or lung disease, as well as people suffering from other chronic conditions. Additionally, patients over 40 have shown to be more vulnerable than those under 40, further supporting the trend.

HOW TO PREVENT COVID-19 FROM SPREADING IN YOUR WORKPLACE?

The COVID-19 epidemic is here, and it seems like it’s here to stay, at least for the time being. As with most viral outbreaks, the absolute best way to avoid contagion is by isolating locking yourself and home and waiting for the worst to pass.
