What is Covid-19?
All over the world, there is a panic of Covid-19. But what is Covid-19, and how can we stop its infection? I will introduce you to how it infects other people and how we can stop its infection. But first, I will explain about Covid-19.
There are many different types of coronavirus. Animals can get infected by them, but only a small number of these can cause disease in humans. The virus is made of protein and RNA (Ribonucleic Acid). When you have coronavirus, it can destroy your body. You may cough, sneeze, and have a high fever. When you have these symptoms, you have to go to the hospital and talk to a doctor.
Covid-19 is very contagious, so I will tell you how to stop the infection. The first thing you must do is to use your mask properly. When you wear a mask, you can protect the others’ bodies from your droplets such as your spit. Second, you should wash your hands with soap. Did you know that you can prevent eighty percent of viruses by washing your hands with soap? You can use the sanitizer, but washing hands is better to prevent diseases. Third, you can check your temperature regularly. When you have a high fever and don’t know about it, everyone can be in great danger. So, checking your temperature is important, too. The last thing you have to do is to avoid large crowds. When you are in a crowded place, you don’t know who has the virus. Because of this, there is a higher risk of infection. So, avoid large crowds and always use your mask properly.
Many people in Korea are trying to stop the spread of Covid-19. They want people to stay indoors and always use their masks. For myself, I want to go to the swimming pool, play with my friends, and go to school, but I cannot because of the virus. Everyone in the world hopes for Covid-19 to be gone fast, so we all must concentrate and always stay alert. Our little hopes can come true, but all of us should try hard. Take care of yourself well, and don’t forget about the four things I told you.
