PRESERVATION OF SPECIES AND THE ENVIRONMENT
CORONAVIRUS, how it is transmitted, symptoms and how to treat it
How coronavirus is transmitted
The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control defines very clearly what is meant by close or close contact:
About the foods we are told that respiratory diseases are not normally transmitted with food, but it is preferable to follow good hygiene practices and avoid contact between raw and cooked foods. Studies are underway to better understand how the virus is transmitted in this regard.
What are the symptoms of the coronavirus
How the coronavirus is treated
There is currently no cure for the coronavirus. Symptom support therapies are done which can be very effective. In any case, intense experimentation is being carried out all over the world to be able to find a cure. And we will make it.
How long does the new coronavirus survive on surfaces
According to what the Istituto Superiore di Sanità tells us, the virus can survive on surfaces for a few hours, even if it is still being studied.
From what we read inAlmanac of Sciences (see bibliography), particular conditions of temperature and humidity, can make the coronavirus survive for up to nine days on inanimate surfaces such as metal, glass or plastic. To contain and eliminate the virus, however, simple precautions are enough using products readily available on the market such as denatured alcohol (ethyl alcohol) or bleach. Matteo Guidotti of the Giulio Natta Institute of Chemical Sciences and Technologies (Scitec) of the Cnr of Milan writes: "A series of specific experimental studies have recently shown how some products easily available at home are able to inactivate the new Coronavirus 2019-nCoV very quickly: adequate disinfection of surfaces such as handles, buttons, tables, shelves, but also waterproof protective devices such as gloves, boots, protective suits or the like, can be effective and very important. Furthermore, these simple preparations can prove useful in emergency situations, in which the availability of specific disinfectant products is limited or even nil. Similar formulations have also been successfully applied in some Lombard public bodies to better address the logistical difficulties in the procurement of decontaminating solutions ».
Therefore, use 75% alcohol (ethanol) or bleach (0.5% chlorine based) as disinfectants to eradicate coronavorus.
When can a person be said to be cured of COVID-19?
A person is considered cured when it results negative in two consecutive swabs carried out 24 hours apart, for the search for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
