Taiwan Straits Network, January 23, according to the Fuzhou News Network. Winter and spring are the seasons when respiratory infectious diseases are high. The Spring Festival is approaching and frequent personnel movements increase the risk of spreading infectious diseases. On the 22nd, the reporter learned from the disease control department that pneumonitis infected by the new coronavirus can be prevented and controlled, and the public does not need to panic too much.
It is understood that acute respiratory infections in winter and spring are caused by pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, or mycoplasma, and can be transmitted through air and contact. Onset is usually acute, often accompanied by fever, chills, headaches and other symptoms. In severe cases, respiratory distress syndrome, organ failure, shock and even death may occur.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has suggested that pneumonitis of the new coronavirus infection recently reported in Wuhan can be prevented and controlled. "Early detection, early diagnosis, early treatment, early isolation" is the most effective way to prevent and control the new type of coronavirus infection. Citizens who have fever, fatigue, dyspnea and other symptoms, especially persistent fever, should go to a medical institution in time to wear a mask.
How to prevent new coronavirus? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that the key is to start with good personal protection. Work hard, ventilate, get together, eat cooked food, wash hands, keep fit, drink plenty of water, do not spit, and cover your mouth and nose with sneezing. At the same time, pay attention to maintaining indoor air circulation, do not go to closed, airless public places and crowded places, wear masks when necessary.
To prevent various respiratory infectious diseases, start by learning to wash your hands scientifically, especially after coughing or sneezing, when taking care of patients, before and after preparing food, before and after meals, and after handling animal excreta, etc., wash your hands in time and rinse with running water And use soap or hand sanitizer for at least 30 seconds.
The disease control department reminded that the most important measure to prevent the new coronavirus is to wear a mask. Common masks on the market can be divided into three types of surgical masks, medical protective masks (N95 masks), and ordinary cotton gauze masks. Medical surgical masks can block 70% of bacteria, and N95 masks can block 95% of bacteria. If the citizens go to public places and do not contact the patients, it is enough to wear medical surgical masks without over-protection. However, if it comes into contact with the patient, wear a bio-resistant N95 mask. (Reporter Qiu Ling Intern Su Yilian)
