Have you heard about Coronavirus disease also known as Covid-19? It is a new virus that has spread nearly to every country in the world. It was identified in Wuhan, China for the first time around December 2019. Those who got serious illnesses like diabetes, cancer and heart attack normally will have trouble recovering from the Covid-19 especially when the old age people. There are about 38,729,184 cases from across the world within less than a year and till now there are about 1,096,320. Scientists from all over the world are working hand in hand in hope to find the vaccine. It has been months and almost a year, and many of them have failed. Some of them are lucky enough to recover from the disease without needing the vaccine or any medicine but not everyone is lucky enough like them.
In Malaysia, the Coronavirus disease started to record and be found on 7th March 2020. There are about 7 cases only on the first day and increasing day by day until it gets more than 17,540 cases in total. Malaysia is approaching the third wave and the cases will get worse if we do not break the chains as soon as possible. So Malaysia government does make sure they break the chains for the coronavirus. First of all, Malaysian practice a new norm which is doing social distancing and also always takes good care of their hygiene. They constantly wear masks and use hand sanitizer when they go out. Other than that, frequently use personal care products. If you are looking for some hygiene products and do not have time to go out why not try to buy some personal care products at ongrocer online. You can also buy other groceries via ongrocer online and it delivers the same day for some areas in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, and Negeri Sembilan.
Do you know what the symptom for the disease is? According to the World Health Organization (2020), there are three most common symptoms that usually people have such as fever, cough, and feel tiredness. Other than that, people who have the disease also might have aches and pain, sore throat, diarrhoea, headache, loss of your taste, and smell together with a rash on the skin. Some people might have slightly more serious symptoms like finding it difficult to breathe and feel pressure on their chest, they might lose their voice or movement. On average, some people take about 5 to 6 days to show symptoms and some may take up to 14 days. That is why in Malaysia, the government told us to stay at home and quarantine ourselves for 2 weeks to see if we really get the symptom or not. We do not need to worry much if the person shows the symptom because there are some people who do not have the symptom at all but still are attacked by it. That is why you must be careful at all times. Also if you feel unwell please stay at home because the virus could easily go to your body as it attacks a weaker body faster. You also need to avoid touching your face frequently and always stay away about 1 meter from other people if you were to sneeze or cough and remember to cover your mouth. Other than that, this is not a good time for you to travel and it is good if you can sidestep for it. Also, if you ever visit any areas that are high in risk, please ensure to go for a COVID-19 test, in order to prevent the cases from rising rapidly.
Now, you know all the symptom and hopefully, you try to avoid crowded places and if possible try not to go out unless it necessary because COVID-19 is a serious issue, and many people who are affected by this virus died even before receiving the vaccine. If you need to go out, make sure you always wear a mask and bring hand sanitizer with you all the time also if you are in Malaysia please scan the QR code of the MySejahtera, that has been provided by the government. This is necessary in order to trace people and to break the chains because we do not want the cases for the COVID-19 to increase again.
