Coronavirus, or COVID-19 is having a huge impact on the world around us as. The mutating virus that originated in the Wuhan province of China back in 2019 can present a range of symptoms or nothing at all. For some it feels like the early stages of a cold: a cough, a high temperature (over 37.8 degrees) and shortness of breath. After a few days of discomfort many have had a relatively swift recovery. Unfortunately, there is another group of sufferers whose symptoms look more like full blown pneumonia.
The World Health Organisation have been advising everyone to improve their levels of hygiene with increased and better handwashing with soap or an alcohol based hand sanitiser. Socially distancing ourselves by remaining at least a metre (three feet) away from each other is the first step to halting the spread. They have also advised us to keep our hands away from our faces to avoid giving the virus access to our eyes, nose and mouth.
