The Ministry of Health has announced that two cases of coronavirus infection (COVID-19) have been confirmed in Ghana.
The cases, according to the Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, were confirmed on Thursday, March 12, 2020.
“The corona virus is a virus with a diameter of 400-500 microcells, large in size, even any mask prevents the virus from entering, so there is no need to force pharmacists to ask for a 2-layer 3-layer mask.
The virus settles on the ground, not in the air, so it is unlikely to be transmitted by air
The corona virus will live for 12 hours when it gets on a metal surface, so even washing your hands with soap and water will be enough.
Corona virus remains 9 hours when it gets on the fabrics, so washing clothes or exposing them to the sun for two hours is enough to kill it.
The virus lives in the hands for 10 minutes, so it is worthwhile to carry pocket-sized alcohol and disinfectants in the pocket and use them often for preventive purposes.
Since the virus dies when exposed to a temperature of 26-27 ° C, it cannot survive in hot areas. It is also good enough to drink hot water and hot drinks and be exposed to the sun.
It is important to stay away from ice cream and not to prefer cold foods and drinks.
Gargling with warm water and salt kills the virus while on the tonsils and prevents it from getting into the lungs.
It is important to follow these instructions to prevent the virus. ” UNICEF
