New Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

New Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

New Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

1. What is a coronavirus?

Coronavirus is a large family of viruses. Most of them infect animals, but some coronaviruses from animals can grow (mutate) and become new human coronaviruses and spread from person to person.
This happened with a new coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2, which could cause the disease called COVID-19. In coronavirus patients, the disease usually occurs in a simple or moderate way, such as the flu.

2. How is coronavirus transmitted?

Other respiratory infections, such as the flu and human coronavirus, are also transmitted to another infected person through the following channels:
• Small droplets of water are released by coughing or sneezing
• Close the contact, for example, when you touch an infected person, nose, top, or eyes with unwashed hands

3. What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Sick people have minor symptoms, such as severe symptoms that require hospitalization, and in some cases can be fatal. Symbols include:
• High fever
• cough
• Shortness of breath

4. What if I have these symptoms?

Experience has shown that, like the flu, most people have mild symptoms. You should stay at least 3 days (72 hours) after recovery, which means lowering the temperature and improving respiratory symptoms (eg coughing, breathing) without the use of antipyretics, and at least 7 days after the onset of the first symptoms.


Older people with these symptoms, pregnant women, people with weakened immune systems, or people with chronic illnesses who have these symptoms should seek medical help as soon as possible. If you have trouble breathing or nausea or vomiting, go to the emergency room or call 911. In some cases, please consult a physician before going to a medical facility.


Be sure to let all your close contacts know that they must be isolated within 14 days of their last contact. Close contacts include everyone who lives with you, any partner closest to you,
All persons less than 6 meters (2 meters) away from you more than 10 minutes from 48 hours before the onset of symptoms until the end of your separation period, and in addition, are exposed to body fluids and/or fluids (no sneezing/sneezing,


If you are using standard tableware, exchanging saliva or care without using preservatives), you must comply with this independent warranty.

5. Can coronavirus be tested?

Most people stay calm and recover, so if you have minor symptoms, you do not need to see a doctor for a checkup. If you experience difficulty breathing or vomiting or nausea, please contact your doctor or call 911 in an emergency.


Certain groups of patients, such as the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, or patients with chronic illnesses, should call a physician immediately. If you have any questions, please call your clinic or doctor before going to the clinic in person.


We do not recommend that people without symptoms take the COVID-19 test. If you pass the test and the test result is correct without symptoms, you should stay home and stay away from other people, at least 7 days from the date of the test.


If the test result is negative, no additional steps are required. If you withdraw from the test and the test result is correct without symptoms, you should stay home and stay away from other people, for at least 7 days from the date of the test. Your separation will end at this time.


On the other hand, if you pass the test and the results of the analysis are completely free of symptoms, you should still look for independent isolation or COVID-19 within 14 days after the last contact with the patient who was diagnosed with COVID-19.


6. How is coronavirus printed?

There is no direct treatment for COVID-19. However, many symptoms can be treated. Choose treatment according to the patient's condition. Currently, there is no vaccine to protect the new coronavirus. Beware of scams that sell products that they claim are used to prevent or treat the new disease.


7. Is the new coronavirus spreading in the United States?

Yes, in the United States, including Los Angeles County, the prevalence of new coronavirus in the community has increased. Most likely, its distribution will continue. Our goal is to reduce the spread of disease to protect the population and the health care system.

8. What should I do to protect myself and others from COVID-19?

Everyone can take daily measures to reduce the risk of illness or allow others to contract COVID-19.
you must:


• Comply with social laws and comply with Chief Health Officer (HOO) rules. This means that everyone should stay at home without basic services or work. When you leave the house, please try to keep a distance of 2 meters from other people.


• If you are a member of an organization that does important work, stay home when you are sick.
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the toilet, before eating, nose, coughing, or sneezing.


• If it is difficult to get water, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. If your hands look dirty, be sure to wash them with water and clean water.


• Do not touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. • Avoid close contact, such as kissing and sharing cups or cutting objects with patients.


• Avoid close contact, such as kissing and sharing cups or cutting objects with patients.


• Use standard household cleaners to clean and disinfect items and exposed areas. If not, use the curve (Ruki).


• If you have not received the flu vaccine this season, please take a vaccination.


• Avoid all small movements.


9. Should I wear a mask?

 It is not recommended that healthy people wear masks to protect themselves from COVID-19 unless directed by the doctor present. People with COVID-19 symptoms or COVID-19 symptoms can wear a mask (if available) or cover their face with a cloth when they need to go out to visit a medical institution.


People can cover their face with cloth (such as a scarf or towel), cover their nose and mouth if necessary, and leave the house for a short time to obtain basic services or purchase necessities, but this is not mandatory.


It is important to remember that masks cannot replace social isolation in other preventive measures (such as regular hand washing).
If you are infected but do not have any symptoms of infection, clothing can be used to protect others.

 Please remember that the provided respirators and masks are very important for medical staff and caregivers for COVID-19.

10. How to protect yourself when walking?

At the same time, everyone arriving in the United States from international travel must stay at home for 14 days from the date of arrival. When you are at home, you need to monitor your health and maintain the community level.


If you have fever, cough, or shortness of breath, it is recommended that you call your doctor and report your symptoms and travel history.

11. What do I need to know about the suspension of classes and business?

Due to the widespread dissemination of COVID-19 data in the community and to help slow the spread of the disease, the Los Angeles County Health Inspectorate and the Governor of California shut down non-essential businesses in which a large number of people maintain close contact with each other.


These companies include cinemas, sports and concerts, bars, nightclubs, stadiums, bowling alleys, playgrounds, playgrounds, hairdressers and nail salons, wholesalers, indoor shopping malls, and more.
In addition, restaurants and other food and beverage establishments are now performing their duties through delivery, retrieval or operation, instead of providing on-site services.


Life-saving services including public transportation, grocery stores, public housing, and medical facilities will continue to operate, but a public distance of at least two meters (two meters) must be maintained between people, and handwashing stations can be used free of charge.


Public health encourages organizations and schools to continue to provide life-saving services in the event of temporary work stoppages.


Talk to a representative of the school or kindergarten where your child is studying to understand how they plan to perform tasks in an emergency and prepare other ways to take care of the child in advance. Talk to your employer to understand what needs to be done when the factory is closed or the workplace is suspended.


12. What if I feel frustrated due to COVID-19?

When you hear, read or watch news about infectious disease outbreaks, it is normal to be worried and exhibit depressive symptoms. The important thing is to take care of your physical and mental health.


Check out tips on how to deal with stress on the "How to deal with stress in infectious diseases" page on the Public Health website. To get help, call the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health Hotline (800) 854-7771 or call 2-1-1.

13. What else can I do?

• If you do not have a doctor, please see a doctor
• If you need to see a doctor independently, please fill the emergency box with food and supplies for 14 days. Like other emergencies, it is important to be prepared.
 •Always get the latest and reliable information about the new coronavirus from reliable sources.
