The Australian local community infection has begun quietly, knowing that it will come, I did not expect to come so fast, so close, can move less, try to move as little as possible, don’t just try your luck. From now on the following are the symptoms of new coronavirus pneumonia:
- It will first infect the throat, so the throat will have the dry sore throat feeling which will last for 3 to 4 days. At first, the virus will infect the throat and the throat will feel very dry. This feeling lasts about 3-4 days.
- Then the virus will blend into the nasal fluid and drips into the trachea and enter the lungs, causing pneumonia. This process will take 5 to 6 days, and then the virus will invade the nasal fluid, flow into the trachea, and finally enter the lungs causing pneumonia. This process lasts about 5-6 days.
- With pneumonia, comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You will feel like you are drowning in water. It’s important to go seek immediate medical attention if you feel like this It is high fever and difficulty breathing. The feeling of blocked nasal cavity is not the same as the common cold. You will feel a feeling of drowning and unable to breathe. Seek medical attention if this happens. About prevention:
- The most common way of getting infected is by touching things in public, so you must wash your hands frequently. The virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 mins, but a lot can happen in those 5-10 mins ( you can rub your eyes or pick your nose unwittingly) Usually the most likely way to get infected is to touch an object with a virus in a public place, so remember to wash your hands frequently. The virus will only survive for 5-10 minutes on your hands, but even for a short period of 5-10 minutes, be very vigilant (do not rub your eyes with your hands or unconsciously pick your nose)
- Aside from washing your hands frequently, you can gargle with Betadine Sore Throat Gargle to eliminate or minimize the germs while they are still still in your throat (before dripping down to your lungs) Mouth, which can kill or reduce the germs that remain in the throat, preventing pneumonia from falling into the lungs. Take extra care and drink plenty of water.
Please be careful and remember to drink plenty of water.
